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.) (view spoiler)[ for elementary school kids. Yes, the book tries to pretend it is something else, embellishing itself with creepy... (hide spoiler)]

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...

When I was a child, one of my favourite things to do was to look through pictures in books - children's picture books, colouring books, etc. - and tell stories in my mind with them. 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.
