TBR of the Week: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, from Ransom Riggs

Good morning! Sorry, this Sunday post is a bit later than usual because I was too hooked on Darkness Fair to leave a scheduled post yesterday, sorry! Anyway, my chosen one for the TBR of the Week is my newest baby! My hero dad got me Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children along with To Kill a Mockingbird and I couldn’t be happier ❤

Goodreads’ blurb:

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

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.

Why I got interested: I found out about this book when I read Asylum, from Madeleine Roux, and knew I needed to read it too. I love horror stories with asylums, an eerie feeling about the plot and characters, and human anomalies mistreated. Plus, my friends have been saying nothing but good things about it!

That’s it, thanks for reading! Stay tuned, as the review for Darkness Fair shall air today!
