Book Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenMiss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book has been on my TBR for a long time. Overall, I was fairly happy with it. It was slow in some parts as the plot was developing. I really enjoyed the photographs that were spread throughout the book. I think they added alot to the story.

The characters seem to be well rounded. I'm looking forward to seeing how they develop throughout the other books in this series. I wish there would have been a little bit more about Grandpa at the beginning of the book, but that's just personal preference.

The world building is good in this book. The author takes great care in describing all the places in this book. I didn't have any problems coming up with a mental image for the various settings. This is something that I really enjoy about a well written book.

The plot is developing nicely. I'm interested to see how it's going to be spread out over the entirety of this series. I'm imagining there will have to be some side plots to go along with the main one, but we shall see.

Overall, I give this book 4/5 stars. I think it's a great book for middle grade readers on up. It's a quick read and would be a great one for the month of October as people are looking for spooky books to add to their TBR.
