What do you think of dark fantasy, mystery, and action? If you like them, then you’ll like this Y.A. novel. “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” is a novel by Ransom Riggs. This book is follows a 16 year old boy named Jacob Portman, who lives in Florida, and has a basic apple pie life. Or at least until his Grandpa gets killed by something. Then Jacob’s whole life gets turned around… Find out what happens when you read the novel.

     Hailey, via Goodreads, reviewed the book as follows; “I was skeptical before reading this book as I’m not a lover of horror stories, but this is not a horror story. Sure it’s creepy, but it is not a book that will give you nightmares or make it hard for you to fall asleep at night. Ransom Riggs has created a world within a world, a world for the different, peculiar. 

     To say this book was what I expected would be an outright lie. This book was much more than I expected. It was a beautiful coming of age tale, filled with just the right amount of mysticism and creepiness. The characters were lovable and relatable, each with their own peculiar quirk. Reading this novel transported me to a whole different world, one I would love to be a part of. For that, I give it 5 gold stars, well deserved.”

Personally I love these books. The plot is very interesting and fast pace. There is never a dull moment.  Not only this, but the antique photographs add such a flair, that is so unique to these books. You do get to see tremendous character and world development, which Ransom (author) does a great job of doing. Overall, I would give this book a 5/5 star rating. It’s Extravagant.
