Hollow City

After finishing Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children a while back, I was saddened to be left adrift along with Jacob, Emma and all the other peculiars from the island. I was ecstatic when Hollow City finally came out and thrilled that the story  picks up right where the first one left off with Jacob and his friends heading to London.

The whole world that Riggs creates for the peculiars to discover is fascinating.  I really enjoyed watching all of the children grow into their powers and discover other peculiar children as they traveled.  The photos are just as unusual as in the first book and follow the story well…almost as if Riggs sat down with a pile of bizarre photos and created stories to explain the unique children in them.

I really hate waiting for the next installment, since we discover Jacob’s hidden talent at the very end of this one. But I’m sure it will be well worth the wait. Loved. This. Book.
