Monday Book Recommendations: Miss Peregrine Series

Totally loved this series. From the introduction of Jacob Portman and his formative escapades into the world of Peculiardom and it’s fascinating characters, to his ongoing journey in “Hollow City” and climatic conclusion in “Library of Souls”. It’s a journey worth diving into. What I loved most was the fact that these Peculiars were not super-powered humans who can level a city with a single blink. They are real. They are relateable. They are “kids” who have their world shaken, their future thrown in disarray and their peculiarity put in jeopardy.

You can read my reviews of each of these books here: NthatoMorakabi.com – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

If that doesn’t convince you, perhaps this amazing trailer will. Please read the books first!? Please! The movie is still coming so you got time. Jusss doo eeet!


 

On a side note, I had 0 word count this weekend so I’m kind of behind in my Camp progress. Good thing I managed to churn out that massive word count last week. Anyway, onward forth!

  1. I’ve been curious about this series for a while, but like most people, I thought it would be scary because of those haunting pics on the cover. But since seeing the movie trailer, my interest in it has increased.

  3. A lot of people are reading these books at the moment. I don’t know why, but maybe I need to hop on the train.

  5. Oh no, Rachel, I read the third book (on the advice of a seventh grader) FIRST! It made good sense. Maybe I didn’t miss out on too much! Rae
