I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, #1) by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs


23/3 - This didn't go in quite the direction I was expecting it to. I was expecting more of a haunted house kind of story and I wasn't expecting it to be such a YA story, for some reason I thought the main character was an adult. But the surprises were not a problem, mostly they were a pleasant surprise. Jacob was a really good, sympathetic main character (although I did find his relationship with Emma a bit weird and incesty).

For me the best part of the book was the photos and Riggs' explanation of where he got them at the back of the book. I would've loved to have been able to zoom in on the photos so I could get a better look at the details. I will definitely read the sequel, but I won't bother buying it. I bought this in the Calgary Airport Coles when it was first published on the recommendation of the staff in the store and while it was a enjoyable book, for me it wasn't worth the $19.99 Canadian I paid for it. I will borrow the sequels from the library.
