Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (#1)9460487

Pages: 352
Genre: Fantasy, Supernatural
Rating: 2/5

Synopsis:  A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.


This is another book I didn’t read when I was in elementary school. I should’ve done that because it’s a children’s book that isn’t scary.

This book reminded me of Asylum by Madeleine Roux. They both have pictures in them and weren’t spectacular.

The only reason I read this book is because there’s a movie for it coming out on September 30th and that it was displayed in the teen’s section of Barnes and Noble. I don’t suggest reading this. I rated this three stars because even though it’s a children’s book, the plot made sense and it flowed.
