I am tired. Tired of these continuations of series that just suck the content from the original series away, undo things that were done. Tired of authors being so lazy they can’t even come up with a new villain.
This book was flat. The characters felt dull and lifeless. The world of peculiars, once so interesting and unique, feels lifeless, like all the magic has been drained from it. The photographs interwoven throughout the story feel cheap, and not overly connected to the ...more
This one was fast paced and exciting and I just wanted to keep on reading it.
I loved all the books in the series so for me Mr Riggs can keep churning them out for as long as possible.
2) Hollow City ★★★★☆
3) Library of Souls ★★★★☆
4) A Map of Days ★★★★☆
I'm so disappointed. Like you can see above, I gave four stars to each book in this series so far. Let me be really clear: four stars means I love a book, it's not a favorite but I love it. I know many give five stars when they love a book, so I'm just explaining how I rate books myself. Anyway, like I was saying, I love this series. I loved each book in this series. I thought i ...more
Jacob has been trusted with a mission by his grandfather’s friend, H; deliver the new peculiar, Noor, to an operative known as V. Noor, however, is being hunted by those who know her powers, those who wish to change peculiardom forever. With the help of his pecu ...more
The Conference of the Birds picks up right where A Map of Days left off! Jacob left his friends to save Noor (against Miss Peregrine’s wishes) and there he learns from H that there is a prophecy looming and it involves Noor. Prepared to save her from the American clans, Jacob and Noor flee for their lives but are worried how they are going to survive until Hugh and Bronwyn show up and rescue them from being captured by Leo’s lackey ...more
I sadly think it's time to let it go.
I didn't hate the book, but it also added nothing to the story for me and I would have preferred the series ended on a high. It was OK, as a filler book goes, and I may even have given this 3 stars if Ransom Riggs... RANSOM FING RIGGS hadn't written those soul destroying words that ...more
This book was such a DISAPPOINTMENT!! With a mediocre plot and an annoying love triangle, this book was not peculiar at all. As someone who has been following the series (this being the fifth book) devotedly, I wouldn’t defame the book unless it is BAD, like bad bad! All it tried to achieve was building-up for the next book, without adding anything to the plot.
That said, I’m still going to read the last book (of course, once it comes out) because I ...more
As mentioned in the review for A Map of Days, I’m thoroughly impressed that I’m enjoying this follow up series even more than the OG trilogy. I love being with these characters and just in this entirely new environment. I missed them, but I also love the new characters.
Overall I’m just happy to be back in this world, caught up on another series, and now we wait for the next book.
Hollow City was great, and I actually forgot the names of the next ones because they were extremely bad.
The charm of the original book is completely gone here. The peculiar world is no longer intriguing, the new characters are exact replicas of the old ones, the gang isn't even together anymore, Miss Peregrine does nothing except yell at the kids - I am so tired of this all. All I wanted was another good sequel!! Just one more!! And now Ransom Rigg ...more
I did like this book! But it definitely isn’t my favorite in the series. I felt the pacing was just odd, and I think it was like that because mostly only 3 main things happen in this story, and there just wasn’t much going on. In AMOD there was a glorious mystery element, and codes, and scavenger hunts. This book d ...more
For me The Conference of The Birds felt flat, it was a filler novel that (in my mind) should have been twice the length to actually close off the story... There are two or three stories running at once, none of which really get any closure or solid explanation and I'm left feeling disappointed more than anything.
Don't get me wrong, my reading tastes have changed over the years, it might just be YA isn't for me anymore ...more
I liked Jacob and Noor in this one. Jacob’s character is much better in this book compared to A Map of Days. In this book, he’s not just a follower but he’s now an actual leader. Noor was initially introduced in A Map of Days but she ha ...more
So, we continue with Jacob and his peculiar friends. This book does not disappoint. It has everything that you would expect from this Fantasy series. There are explosions, revelations and despair. Ransom Riggs creates a masterpiece by entwining vintage photographs ...more
The novel felt like coming home to a group of friends that have b ...more
