The New York Times #1 best-selling series. The movie adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is now a major motion picture from visionary director Tim Burton, staring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Judi Dench.

Like its predecessors, Library of Souls blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.
 
A boy with extraordinary powers. An army of deadly monsters. An epic battle for the future of peculiardom.
 
The adventure that began with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and continued in Hollow City comes to a thrilling conclusion with Library of Souls. As the story opens, sixteen-year-old Jacob discovers a powerful new ability, and soon he’s diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Accompanying Jacob on his journey are Emma Bloom, a girl with fire at her fingertips, and Addison MacHenry, a dog with a nose for sniffing out lost children.
 
They’ll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthine alleys of Devil’s Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It’s a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all.






Ransom Riggs grew up in Florida but now makes his home in the land of peculiar children -- Los Angeles. He was raised on a steady diet of ghost stories and British comedy, which probably explains the novels he writes. There's a nonzero chance he's in your house right now, watching you from underneath the bed. (Go ahead and check. We'll wait.) If not, you can find him on Twitter @ransomriggs.

My review for the film adaption of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

REVIEW:
Another awesome look at Peculiars!
Each book in the series picks up more speed than the last, with this book coming to a final conclusion. Ironically, it did leave room open for more, if necessary, but in a whole, the story came together nicely.
How I like to see all the Peculiars make it to where they needed to be and with whom they needed to be with. A happy ending is always nice. I found myself feeling sorry for the creatures that were considered an enemy in this series, after finding out the full history on them. Didn't see that coming, that's for sure!
If you haven't read this series, you should. I saw one person commented that this series is too creepy for her, but that's the thing, there is not much creepy about the story at all. It's like a science-fiction, fantasy, if you ask me, and I think some of you who are turned off would be so on if you gave it a try.


4.5/5

  1. I liked the end of this one. Have you seen the movie yet? They change it so that Emma is not the fire girl but the floating girl.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
