I could seriously read 30 books in this series without getting old. I love the world, the characters, the action, the peculiarities. Even though I haven't read a book by Ransom in three years, cracking this open to page one felt like returning to an old friend and delving back into a story i'd only just put down.
I love that this book expands the characters' worldview and how their personalities begin to evolve. The way that they change and begin questioning a ...more
I enjoyed this one nearly as much as the very first book. It was long but easy to read and the pages seemed to race past. The characters are growing up and there are some very interesting scenes as a result. How would you feel if you used to date the grandfather of the boy you are now seeing? And how does he cope when he thinks you still love his (dead) granddad. This is the sort of problem you can come across w ...more
Wow, wow and wow. I was so nervous that this book would be worlds different from the original trilogy but it wasn't, it was perfect.
Firstly, the characters, oh my goodness, I love them so much. We got to know them on such a deeper level and I was not expecting that. I am still very emotional about this, I'm literally smiling non-stop right now. They are all so unique in their own little ways and it makes my heart very happy.
Going into this book, I hadn't the slightest clue what it was ab ...more
My reaction, when thanks to Tahereh Mafi tweeting about it, I knew this book existed and all I could say was: I. AM. DECEASED.
The fourth book in Riggs' signature series plays out a bit like Iron Gold for me in that it's long and a little bit on the slow side sometimes, but it does a great job of expanding the world as built in the original trilogy too. Though Riggs doesn't do the four-POV route like Pierce Brown did - once again, Jacob's our sole POV character. But since he's about as new to the ...more
Jacob Portman and his peculiar friends are off on another adventure, this time to 20th and 21st centuries America. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others; I don't know if it's the book or if it's that I'm tiring of the series. I think 3 books sufficed and I won't be reading the 5th or 6th. I did derive some enjoyment from this book, especially from seeing the old photographs and the clever way Ransom Riggs weaves them into the story. I also enjoyed meeting some new Peculiars. However, ...more
When we left Jacob he had come home to Florida in which the peculiar followed suit and came to find him ending on what I thought was a lovely open ending. Well it did not stop there which I was about to find out. Oh how I have missed Ransoms writing. A Map of Days sat on my to be re ...more
Guess who's gonna age forward 10 years waiting for the 5th book in this series?
"It's strange, what the mind can digest and what it resists."
"There was something in the act of shouting along to that particular song with these particular people while driving that particular car that gave me a crazy, spine-tingling high like I'd never experienced before. It felt like we were claiming the world for ourselves and our lives as our own. This is mine. Yes. I'll do with i...more
(You can read the complete review on my blog!)
This novel follows the events in the previous three books. Go read those first for the best results!
The plot built up pretty slowly, but it continued to get more interesting along the way. At about page 400, the plot just… well, the only way I can describe it is like this: if the first 400 pages was l ...more
Should have stopped at three.
I loved the original Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It had some really novel ideas, interesting characters (Miss Peregrine especially), and a compelling story. When I found out there was going to be a new trilogy, I was excited, but cautious. Looks like I had a right to be.
At the end of the Library Of Souls, Jacob left the loop and returned home to his parents, who consequently thought he was insane and attempted to have him committed. Luckily, ...more
Full review to come.
Oh my gosh! The title. The cover. I'm dying.
Every author I know has planned to release the new trilogy of the series that I've been following, but it's okay as it means I have something to read and look forward to for the next three years, at least.
*I'm soooooooooooo ready for this btw*
But we all know that the mundane days won't last, and for Jacob that comes when he meets with an old comrade of his grandfathers known as H. With the prospect of the b ...more
The vintage photographs again works flawlessly to create a brilliant story. This book left me hanging. A Map of Days is my first book to read in 2019 and it means something special to me.
Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children have now become her angsty teens. In A Map of Days we are thrust into the aftermath of the events in the Library of Souls and the peculiar children coming to terms with living in the modern age. Additionally, the peculiar universe is expanded by exploring the American time loops. Let’s just say that the American time loops leave much to be desired in terms of stability and human decency.
I found myself getting frustrated with the peculiar childre ...more
I was kind of afraid that this would be disappointing because I didn't feel like I needed more of this series after finishing the trilogy which ended at a good point but oh boy I was wrong. This is such a good continuation of the series. It followed the original trilogy nicely but it didn't matter that I had forgotten a lot of what happened in the previous books because this was mostly a new, seperate story from the original trilogy. Definitely excited to see how Ransom Riggs will con ...more
I didn’t realise how much I missed this world and it’s characters. Riggs’s writing is wonderful and paints the most vivid action and atmospheric scenes. Simply put, a captivating, magical, hypnotic and enchanting read.
This forth book in the series, pretty much like every other, turned out to be very enjoyable for me! But, just like the others, had a very big flaw in my opinion: the first half was veeery slow, and really felt more like an introduction to the book itself than a part of it. I was even tempted to stop reading, but I pushed through and I am glad I did because, at around 60%, the real action started and it was GREAT! Really, the main plo ...more
Jacob Portman is back home again after his infamous win against the peculiar monsters, and this time Miss Peregrine and all of her wards are with him, trying their best to blend in in sunny, modern day Florida. When Jacob discovers a subterranean bunker in the basement of his deceased grandfather, Abe’s, house, this leads Jacob and his friends on the hunt fo ...more
I had struggles getting hands on this book, but finally, I was able to get myself a copy and read it.
I was underwhelmed with it. Maybe I hyped it too much in my head. Don't get me wrong here but I have my reasons.
- The pictures in the book weren't as exciting, relatable, or even required in the story. At times it felt like it's being forced into it. They weren't as quirky as they were in the first three books.
