Book Review: Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #2) by Ransom Riggs




Book Summary:

The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London the peculiar capital of the world. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reacting experience.

My thoughts:
I LOVED Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I read it in 8 hours on our way back from Michigan a few years ago.

I've been waiting for this sequel since then, and I was so excited to read it. This book is just as wonderful as the first, visually. The photos are fun and of course, very peculiar. These details make the book and the series what they are. Fun and interesting. It picks up right where the first book left off, so a refresher is definitely needed if it's been awhile since you've read it.

Overall, this book was almost as good as the first for me. I fell in love with the characters even more and this adventure was exciting. There are some parts that have you at the edge of your seat, wondering if the children and Miss Peregrine will make it through. It's great for young adults as well as adults and it's so worth the read.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars
