Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
written by Ransom Riggs
Just another random person reiterating what an incredible book this is. This was not at all the story I expected. I thought, oh, a combination of text and old photographs, this is going to be some artsy wannabe pretending they're a hotshot professional photographer. Guys, look closely at the cover. She's hovering. And that's just one of many incredible photographs contained within these pages, shaping a terrifying, suspenseful book that will actually leave you with chills. There are so many incredible plot twists along the way. I lost my love of the story a bit when time travel came into the picture, and the focus shifted from the incredible characters who I wanted to fully know to a less interesting, less bone-chilling plotline. All of the props I have to offer to the characters, though. Great book, really original, stays with you long after you're done.
"there are those who say that life is like a book, with chapters for each event in your life and a limited number of pages on which you can spend your time. but i prefer to think that a book is like a life, particularly a good one, which is well worth staying up all night to finish"--lemony snicket
