More often than not, I struggle to like the second book of a trilogy and Hollow City is no exception. To me, the second book feels like all the boring bits between the excitement of discovery and the thrill of the finale stretched out to 'make do' as a book. In other words, book two is all existen...

Another solid entry; simple but imaginative writing with a clear and sometimes surprising progression. Good twists at the end. Fast read with a fun hook. Finding it less creepy than the first book, more fun and engaging. Definitely taking a different course from the movie as well.

Good sequal the opening book. I liked the characters running into other peculiar children, like the boy with the gypsies and the girl in London. Does drag out the book not finding out about Miss Peregrine until the end though, although I guess they want a third book. The whole story with Caul hap...

This was a pretty faced paced book. I read through it a lot quicker than the first book but I liked the first one better. This one didn't have the dry humor of the first. I missed that. I usually only read realistic fiction (mostly mysteries) so this story is a stretch for me. The hollows sound ...

Generally, I think I liked this one just slightly less than the first. The only things I have to mention are a couple of complaints. [spoiler] First, they were told Miss Peregrine had 2 days before she was stuck as a bird, so why did Jacob keep saying she had 3?Second, They were so dumb sometimes in...

Peculiar, indeed.It was also so much more too. Like excitement, adrenaline pumping scenes, and a little fear. Oh, how I liked this story. And more than the first book.This book picks up exactly where Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children left off. Which is a good thing. You are left wondering ...

'How long could I stand Florida, now that I'd had a taste of this peculiar life? I was not nearly as ordinary as I used to be - or if it was true that I'd never been ordinary, now I knew it. I had changed. And that, at least, gave me some hope: that even under ordinary circumstances, I still might f...

I like to read this type of fantasy book once in a while, just for a nice break. The one thing that keeps me from reading more is the way things can change in a fantasy in a flash. The Hero's can be in a impossible place to get out of and then all of a sudden you find out they have some special trai...

I liked this one better than the first book but I can't say I loved it. Its pace was faster and it was entertaining from the first page, which was good, but what really got me was the ending. I wasn't expecting that last twist so now I really want to read the third book :)
