31 Nights of Horror V, Night 7: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Novel)
This one’s for all of my scaredy friends who don’t like horror movies.
Three sentence review:
I borrowed a copy of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children from my boyfriend’s 13 year old daughter after two of my best girlfriends had great things to say about it – and I’m glad I did! I love that the author, Ransom Riggs (bad ass name), used his own personal collection of strange, old photographs as the inspiration for this peculiar story. I found myself completely engrossed in the mysteries, oddities, and alternate universes of Miss Peregrine’s world, and I only wish that my own lineage included some sort of cool X-men style mutation that Miss Peregrine would protect and celebrate.
