Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Author: Ransom Riggs
# of Pages: 352
Publisher: Quirk

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. Fiction is based on real black and white photographs. The death of grandfather Abe sends sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and explores abandoned bedrooms and hallways. The children may still live.

          My Review
 This may be my shortest review ever, but this is officially my favorite book of all time. Made me laugh. Made me cry. Made me cringe, because it all seemed so real. My heart is racing, and I'm still shaken by the whole last chapter. It's a historical fiction, very sad, hopeful, and maybe I'll even hint that there is a slight love interest involved? :) I absolutely adored this, it's a must-read! Definitely earned 10 stars, but can only get 5. I truly think that I'll never enjoy a book the same way I enjoyed this one.


  1. Historical fiction isn't usually my thing but I think I'll have to check this one out.

    And whilst your review might be short - I still enjoyed reading it. :)

    1. Awwh, well thank you! And yes, you need to check it out!
