Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs One of the biggest problems of really wanting a book is you build it up in your head. You see the book in all the stores. You read reviews by others who loved the book and the excitement continues to grow. When you finally get the book from the library, you just about pop from giddiness. What happens next typically goes in one of three ways: 1- the book is everything you dreamed it would be and you’re on cloud nine; 2-the book is terrible and you’re severely disappointed; and 3-the book is good but not like you were hoping. Well for me Miss Peregrine’s fell into the last category.This book is solidly good. The story kept me hooked and wanting to read more. I finished it in about 36 hours because I didn’t want to put it down. The story itself was pretty original. I enjoyed the mythology of this world though some elements I still couldn’t understand by the end. Read the rest of my review at The Cheap Reader
