Miss Peregrine

I wanted something a bit lighter to read on the holiday (I mainly brought historical books) and the girlf...iancee had bought some of Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children books. They're very entertaining YA novels, and we've both enjoyed them a lot. There's a nice, darkish vibe going through the books and the weird vintage photos scattered around the pages add to the whole - the author originally based the books on weird, creepy photos he picked up at boot sales and the like.

Been meaning to read these - struck me as a bit Lemony Snicket ish (hopefully!)
Brave you all!
What a superb game this is and will become, my prediction was weak and we will be many more.
Thank you all and see you again here, in breathing life, never where popular opinion dies

I quite liked the movie, I'd be tempted to pick it up if my to read pile wasn't already so big ;)
