Last year me and Sophie hosted the Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children read-along for Halloween. We both absolutely loved the book and was excited to read it ahead of the movie release. The movie stars the likes of Asa Butterfield, Samuel L Jackson and Eva Green. It was released late September 2016 and was a box office smash hit. With the release of the DVD in a few days, i have pulled together some of my thoughts on the movie and books.
Title: Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children
Author: Ransom Riggs
Genre: Adventure, Mystery, Thriller
Publisher: Quirk Books
Publication Date: 26th August 2013
Summery : A mysterious island.
An abandoned orphanage.
A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 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. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
It’s officially the last day of the Halloween read-along tomorrow! That means I’ve got left just a mere twenty-four hours to finish Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children! Am I going to do it? To be honest I’m not entirely sure. I’ve had a lot of Uni work in the last week and a lot of other things going on that I’ve not had much time to read! I need a full afternoon free so I can just lay in my bed and get my head stuck in the book! But I will definitely do my best to get it finished up before tomorrow night!
We are nearly at the end of our Halloween read-along!! Day six already!
I haven’t been able to read much today so I don’t have lots to really post about, but I thought I would round up my favourite and least favourite parts so far. Continue reading
Over the last few days I’ve not had that much productive time to read. Hopefully this is going to change in the next few days, and I will definitely get it done for the deadline day! Because of this, not much has changed in the story since I last wrote a post a few days ago – but that doesn’t mean that I’m not enjoying what is happening at the moment.
First of all…HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Continue reading
Day three and its getting SO GOOD! I’ve hit just over the 150 page mark and I must say that I’m completely hooked. I honestly struggling a little to slow down and make it last until next Wednesday.
