Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

A Lovely Peculiar Read

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

This book has it all - mystery, time travel, adventure, interesting characters, fantastically strange pictures, and wonderfully descriptive writing - that immersed me fully while reading.


I must admit, that this was a great book to curl up with on freezing winter days and nights like we're experiencing now, in order to awaken to a new secret world, full of surprises.


The only thing I was disappointed by was how it ended. However, after reading the conversation with the author (that this edition had in the back), he mentions that he's hard at work on a second novel, in order to make it more of a series. This will be available January 14, 2014. I cannot wait to read it, as I enjoyed this one so much.


All in all, a smart and fun romp in the young adult genre, that every peculiar person should read.
