Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

Hi guys I'm back again... Worst blogger award goes to....

I read this fantastic book over the summer and couldn't wait to tell you about it, this is a great read for anyone who love's their fantasy and paranormal thrillers. 

In 2011, it's a two part series the first being Miss Peregrine and the second book being called Hollow City. It follows a boy named Jacob who after the death of his beloved but strange grandfather goes to seek answers about his grandfathers past and why he was murdered by creatures only Jacob saw and believes in. Not letting you in on too much there. 
This is truly a fantastic read if you love the paranormal fantasy books and even though it is a read aimed for the younger generation it can really be enjoyed by both teenagers and adults. 
It's been talked about more recently as the film/movie adaptation is rumored to be directed by Tim Burton and that's when you know it's extremely weird and wonderful. 

The book includes pictures and visuals which link to the book, much like the cover - which makes it so different from normal YA reads, it keeps you on your feet the whole time.. more than often I just found myself gazing at the pictures and thinking.. is this actually real!? It gives it a graphic novel feel, or shall i say Japanese Horror but set in Britain.

I did get the more deluxe version, which included more pictures, an interview and the first chapter to Hollow City.. which I haven't read because I'd rather get my hands on the actual book. 

Ransom Rigg's has a website - click here, he also wrote Talking Pictures and The Sherlock Holmes Handbook. Miss Peregrine costs anything between £7.99 - £8.99.
