Hi! I'm tired of defending myself for what I wrote on this stupid book. So I thought I would do a favor to all you super-fans out there that want to read a negative review of their favorite book (WHY??!?), and just hide it with spoiler tags. So now, if Goodreads hasn't goofed, you can just see th...

Let me tell you a secret, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is actually:
(I don't think what follows is a spoiler, but am marking it as such anyway as some people think it is.)
for elementary school kids.
Yes, the book tries to pretend it is something else, embellishing itself with creepy... (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

This book has been getting a lot of well-deserved attention for the way it incorporates unusual antique photographs into the narrative. The premise: Jacob grew up on his grandfather’s stories about his own childhood during World War II. Supposedly his grandfather escaped the Holocaust by taking r...

Edit on January 9th, 2016: I haven't thought about this book since I read it in July and I really have no interest anymore in reading the rest of the series.
It definitely was a slow moving book, but the plot really held my attention and I loved the use of the pictures. Sometimes I felt...

For example, a picture of two children holding hands would start this story of friendship, which would then grow wi...

I can't even.
The poor execution of a good idea is just so upsetting to me.
The main problem with this book is that the entire time I was reading I felt like a high school English teacher grading a student's paper, when in fact I am not a teacher or anyone who majored in English or writing. If I am...

This is just one of those books whose hype I don't really "get." I read this years ago when it was newly released, and was thoroughly unimpressed. Upon my second reading of this book, my opinion remains unchanged.
A few creepy pictures and some weird people do not a horror tale make, and honestly,...

This book started with a bang. It was very creepy, exciting and really intriguing, but it all went downhill from there. Once the mystery around the house was explained - which was fairly early and without any nuance - it became a very boring and almost childish story, which I didn't expect at all...

This is kinda like uh...a hipster Harry Potter. Not a bad thing! I liked it a lot. There are tons of cool vintage photographs that lend the air of a turn of the century freak show. I loved the world and the vibe though.
