I’ve been seeing this book all over instagram lately so when I found out that the library had a copy I decided to read it. I didn’t know at the time that this is being turned into a movie. I don’t really get why though.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is about a sixteen year old boy, Jacob, as he travels to an island off the coast of Wales. His grandfather spent some time there as a child during the war. Now Jacob and his father travel there so Jacob can, hopefully, put his nightmares behind him.
Jacob discovers more than he’d bargained for. Soon, he’s thrust into a battle against an evil only he can see. But Jacob has to make a tough decision. To stay with his family or go and help stop these evil creatures from gaining more power.
Even when I was halfway through this book I didn’t know what to think of it. It’s really weird and the kids in it are more than peculiar. Their abilities are just crazy. A boy with bees inside him? What the hell? And the fact that they’re children in body but not really in time. I don’t even know if that’s right. Not really explaining that well.
I have the second book in my pile of books from the library to read but I don’t know if I’ll even read it yet. I gave this book three stars on goodreads but to be honest I don’t even know why. I don’t think I liked it enough for three stars.
Have you read this book? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments.
