What I Read- Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I absolutely loved Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs!  I seriously finished it in like two days -- thank you audio books :)

The story is about a teenage boy, Jacob, who grew up hearing strange tales and viewing odd photos from his grandfather about very peculiar children that he grew up with.  After the tragic loss of his grandfather, Jacob goes on an adventure to learn about the world that his grandfather has always made seem so real to him.

The book is inspired by creepy vintage photos that the author collected over the years.  He based the story around these photos and even wove them throughout the book.  The story is mysterious and intriguing and very descriptive.  It was very strange but I just couldn't hardly make myself put it away until I finished!

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different to read!  I can't wait to read the other books in the trilogy and I will probably rush to the movie theater with all the teenagers to see the move when it comes out in the spring!
