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

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 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

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

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 can't wait for this book!
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!

Oh my gosh! I received a copy of this book from the publisher to help promote the release which is tomorrow, January 14. I can’t believe I finished this amazing addition to the series before the official release.


Anyways, I absolutely loved every moment in this book! The photos were wonderfully bizarre and peculiar. Interesting new characters were introduced as well as the familiar faces. I don’t want to spoil the book but an unexpected character made an appearance as well!

I really approve of

I devoured this book the moment it was in my hands. I had all of these ideas after the last book, the story line went in the opposite direction and I loved every single minute of it!

This book starts the moment the last one ends, as if it was all one book that Mr. Riggs had to abruptly cut in half. The action starts immediately, after all the last book ended in enemy territory.

The peculiar children cant be contained in their little bubble of safety when there are people to rescue and Jacob

Anxiously waiting for this book to come out! In preparation, I'm re-reading A Map of Days to refresh my memory on certain details again. I am first on hold at the library for it. I put it on hold as soon as I saw they were ordering it, after I had made a request for them to purchase it. It may not be processed for a while after publication, so I may have to linger for a bit on it! :( It's worth the wait, I s'pose! I think book #4 was my fave of all them so far. Can't wait to take the next ...more

God. What a damn cliff hanger. I really hope ran some Riggs comes out with a new book this year. He owes us for giving us a book with 150 pages less than the last novel. I’m so sad right now that I’ve got to wait.

The attempt to put in the American Peculiar politics and the increased ymbryne screentime dragged it down, making it lose the charm the other books had. I'm not too sold on Jacob/Noor, though I can see why he would be drawn to her. I've just been reading from book 1 in a marathon so I've had the momentum to enjoy this book, but there's definitely a "middle book syndrome" going on in this one.

Then I hear another branch snap and I look up from where I'm kneeling and there's the monster, covered in Abe's blood, horrible thick tongues waving in the air.
He's got Horatio's face. And he says, in a guttural hollowgast snarl I can plainly understand:

He is coming.

3.5 ideal rating - rounding up to a 4 because for some unknown reason we can't do half star ratings here on goodreads. And because I've been reading this series for 9-ish years of my life, so it means a lot to me, therefore I'll give

I love all of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series, and I have had this 5th book preordered for months. In this installment, Jacob realizes his friends will never cast him out or forget about him. All throughout book 4, tensions between the human world and the peculiar world pulled at Jacob, and he couldn't figure out where he belonged. He was afraid his friends would not forgive him for his mistakes. In this book, these ideas are quickly dispelled as Jacob gets to take on sort of a ...more

Hard to believe that five years ago, the year began with me looking forward to what I was expecting to be the final book of the Miss Peregrine series. But of course Ransom Riggs had more adventures in store. Picking up from the terrifying cliffhanger of A Map of Days, Riggs brings us back into the peculiar world in fine, fine form as always - a much shorter book than its predecessor, but no less powerful or high-stakes for it.

Though Riggs takes the title of this book from a Persian poem (a nice

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
