When I read Ransom Rigg’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children I was creeped out. Although I am person who tends to shy away from the spooky, something about this book compelled me to read. This book sends delicious shivers down my spine and makes me all goosepimply (is this a word?) whenever I glance at the cover of what appears to be a little girl who looks like an old flapper floating in the air. The story was creepy but I think the pictures that accompany the story is what adds to the thrill of reading.
The characters are real and believable and I am excited to read more.
Check out the book trailer below and then grab a copy for yourself.
Feeling a little peculiar,
r’s note: I was sent a copy of this book to review but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
