I’m not a regular blogger, but every once in a while a title comes along I’m compelled to share. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is that latest title. Jacob Portman doesn’t know what is real and what is fiction when it comes to his grandfather’s enigmatic history. Joining him as he untangles the past was like a delectable morsel—unwrapped slowly and eagerly anticipated. Vintage photographs give life to fantastical characters and complement the story. Found in the young adult section, this not only appeals to teens, but also many adult readers. If you enjoyed The Night Circus, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, or even Harry Potter, I suggest rewarding yourself with this treat of endearing characters and high adventure. –Amanda Lynn, Circulation
