I'm at a loss for many reasons with this book. I love reading about these characters, BUT dang ransom really put them through it in this book. I'll admit there were a few things that I would've liked to have seen be executed differently and one thing in particular that I'm not a huge fan of. It's something that I've seen a lot of series that have been revived tend to do. I can't really go into detail with that, because it'll end up spoilery. I also had to act like I didn't read the line "he let ...more

This was...not good.

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 cant 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

This was super disappointing. All books before this one were a five stars for me (at least for when I last read them), but I actually felt agitated whilst reading this because I just wanted it to end. It's easier to talk about what I didn't like so get ready for a ramble. So. With A Map of Days, the plot was slow and steady, introducing you to this new side of the peculiar world, and it was detailed and felt well thought through. This book was a mess in comparison. Firstly, I'm not into the ...more

Oh wow I loved this book and when I got to the last page I was sad because I knew Im going to have to wait awhile until the next one and yes, there will be another one thank goodness.
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.

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

Oh Ive made a grave mistake reading this now when another one could take over a year to release. That ending....

As mentioned in the review for A Map of Days, Im thoroughly impressed that Im 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 Im just happy to be back in this world, caught up on another series, and now we wait for the next book.

Hmmmmmm. So, I want to start by stating that I enjoyed this book, but I think authors need to stop extending series. This series should have stopped at Library of Souls in my opinion.

I did like this book! But it definitely isnt 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 wasnt much going on. In AMOD there was a glorious mystery element, and codes, and scavenger hunts. This book

Probably my least favourite book in the series so far (and I love this series).

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

Jacob is trying to get Noor out of New York and into the safety of a loop. There, they meet back up with the other peculiars and Miss Peregrine. Noor is a part of an ancient prophecy predicting the end of the world. The question is, who are the other seven? War is looming with the wights and time is ticking as the peculiars and ymbrynes learn of a list of items the wights are gathering, one that makes things all the more dangerous. And Jacob gets closer to finding V. While this book wasn't quite ...more

The Conference of the Birds was good and I did like this book but I think this series should stop at Library of Souls. I liked how this book picks up what A Map of Days left off but I just didnt enjoy it much. This probably my least favorite book in this series.

I liked Jacob and Noor in this one. Jacobs character is much better in this book compared to A Map of Days. In this book, hes not just a follower but hes now an actual leader. Noor was initially introduced in A Map of Days but she has an

I haven't looked forward for so much in maybe a decade!
Please, Mr. Riggs, take as much time as you need. We'll be waiting anxiously for your next work!

You on the other hand, Mr. Calendar, better go fast. FASTER, I SAID!

Abandoned story

The author starts so many interesting story lines and then throws the away without a second thought. It feels forced.

3.5 stars

I really liked Jacob's character development in this one even though the plot was rushed and seemed to rely on dues ex machina at times. Noor is such a lovely addition but I wish we got to see more of Emma and the rest of the peculiar kids. Also, what happened to V there?!?!?! While I'm not quite sure where the plotline was going, that was quite a cliffhanger! I can't wait for the peculiar conclusion.

I loved this book so much and with that ending I really want that sequel. I loved the characters so much especially Jacob and Noor the interesting girl and new love interest. I loved that Jacob's character has changed some with his experiences he is still that same strong character that I love so much. I loved Noor the new love interest for her personality and her growing affections for Jacob they make such a great couple. I really liked the plot with it starting right where the last book left ...more

Hi, I'm Ransom, and I like to tell stories. Sometimes I tell them with words, sometimes with pictures, often with both. I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish. I started writing stories when I was young, on an old typewriter that jammed and longhand on legal ...more
