Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Author: Ransom Riggs
Publication Date: 06/07/2011
Audience: Young Adult
Genre: Paranormal, Mystery
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
Picture and Summary from Goodreads
All you need to know about this book is that there was no main focus on romance and yet I was captivated by the story every time I sat down to read....which is saying a LOT. 
The story itself is absolutely brilliant and mystifying.  The pictures just made it that much more real, so much so that it is my opinion that you should own a physical copy rather than an ebook of it.
Really, that is all you need to's one of those things that unless you have read it you wont truly know if you like it or not.  You just have to take a risk on it.  In my experience I was not disappointed.

  1. I'm ashamed I haven't read this yet since, I'm Welsh and from Wales...bad Kirsty. Love that it's not focused on a romance, not many of those around (though, snap, because the one I'm reviewing today doesn't either). When I get to this, I'll definitely have to by a physical copy, I've seen the gorgeous spines too.) Glad you enjoyed it! :)
