Miss Peregrines: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs beside vintage photos that are included in the hardcover box set edition of the series and with a canvas pouch featuring a quote from the book on it.

4 stars


“I liked this idea: that peculiarness wasn’t a deficiency, but an abundance; that it wasn’t we who lacked something normals had, but they who lacked peculiarness. That we were more, not less.”

I thoroughly enjoyed this, it’s a great continuation of the series. It picks up directly where the previous book left off, with them rowing away from the island of Cairnholm. The high stakes were great, the time sensitive mission added a lot to the story. I also like the new additions and knowledge about the peculiar world we received.

“This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerising) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages”Summary from Goodreads.

“We aren’t so different. Outcasts and wanderers all—souls clinging to the margins of the world.”
