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.

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!
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.
Great! It’s not as scary as those images seem to be, and they add an amazing charm to the story itself. A definite recommendation!
Yeah, it’s not horror at all. It’s a really good read. The first one is the most ‘spooky’, but it’s not much at all. The second one is straight up fantasy adventure and I’d say the third will be like that too. 🙂
Will be checking out your reviews, Nthato! Also, on our fave character convo, Enoch is my fave! :’D
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.
We are all waiting Rache. Probably because the movie is coming out in a few months. Remember how the same thing happened with Harry Potter? Don’t want to miss this bandwagon 😛
I had no idea there was a movie coming out, lol. And I didn’t read Harry Potter until two summers ago. 😛
Now you can’t claim ignorance hey 😉 Haha. I really enjoyed the books. I’m sure you will too. No pressure though.
I do plan on reading them at some point. I’ll just be a bit slower than the rest of you, lol.

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
