SarahKat | 3160 comments This thread is to discuss A Map of Days, the fourth book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children Series by Ransom Riggs.


Pages: 496 pages


Length: 1 Month (August)


Participants: Ruthie, Squidget, Trisha, Eirelyn


Everyone reads at their own pace during a Buddy Read. Because participants can be at different parts of the book at different times, it is extremely important to mark spoilers so that the book is not ruined for someone who is not as far along as others!!!


Mark spoilers by placing {spoiler} before the text and {/spoiler} after the text but use the < and > instead of the { and }.


Happy Buddy Reading!

DieAReader Unfortunately I am not going to be able to read this with you all. I am dealing with both several “health obstacles” currently & am unable to split my focus for this. I’m terribly sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks for understanding.

Eirelyn (ladyeirelyn) | 1244 comments I've started this one! I wasn't going to start it until later in the month, but the hold on the book I planned to read 2nd hasn't come through yet, so I began this one instead. :D

I'm liking it so far. I'm through ch. 3, and it has been really interesting to see (view spoiler)

I’m so sorry to hear about your health! Please take care yourself; nothing takes preference over health. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Eirelyn, I’ll probably start this book next, guessing in a day or two. Glad to know you’re liking it so far - will check your spoilers once I’m through those chapters.

I think this is my favorite one so far! I think it captured the essence of the first one while also having fast-paced and cool action moments. Just like the first one, I couldn't put it down.
