“What a beautiful day to go to hell” 

This was a great continuation in the series, this might be my favourite of the Peregrine’s series. This was insanely action packed, lots of twists and character reveals, I was hooked.

When I was reading Library of Souls I thought it was the final book in the series, the ending was nicely wrapped up. However, at the time of writing this a fourth book, Map of Days, has been published, which surprised me. So I’ll be interested to see where the series goes from here.

“The adventure that began with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and continued in Hollow City comes to a thrilling conclusion with Library of Souls. As the story opens, sixteen-year-old Jacob discovers a powerful new ability, and soon he’s diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Accompanying Jacob on his journey are Emma Bloom, a girl with fire at her fingertips, and Addison MacHenry, a dog with a nose for sniffing out lost children.

They’ll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthine alleys of Devil’s Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It’s a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all. Like its predecessors, Library of Souls blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience”Summary from Goodreads.

“There was something sweet about holding a tangible thing that had been touched and marked upon by someone I loved.”

March Wrap Up & April TBR

This month I did abysmally, so terribly in fact that I almost wasn’t going to do this post this month. However, since I made myself a promise to try to do this monthly here I go.

Life got busier than I expected in March, rushing about, renewing my work contract, doctor’s appointments, and more just left me with little time to dedicate to reading. Additionally I also started knitting again so some nights I would choose knitting to calm the mind before bed over reading.

February Wrap Up & March TBR

So this has been delayed a little, mostly because I wasn’t sure what to write for the beginning of the month, a book review or a tag. Then I stumbled across a lot of bloggers posting monthly wrap ups, which I thought was a great idea and something I’m definitely thinking about doing continuously throughout the year.
