german and english review Ich bin so froh, dass ich mit der Trilogie jetzt durch bin. Für mich persönlich wurden die Bücher immer schlechter. Ich liebe das erste Buch immer noch, beim zweiten Buch hatte ich schon mehr Probleme und jetzt mit dem dritten, muss ich wieder einen weiteren Stern in der ...

This is my book for Día de los Muertos This was a very entertaining story. I´m amazed at this guy´s mind. I mean, how does he do it? The story never got dull or too ¨out there¨ for me. It actually got better as it went. Actually, even when I thought the story was over and was just going to w...

I swear if Riggs had included more stories like this in his trilogy I would have ended up liking the series a lot better. We get to read about tales that are put together by one of the characters we read about in Miss Peregrine's series. "Tales of the Peculiar" is supposedly written by a former Miss...

This was actually really good. I don't normally like short stories, but the fairytale format works, and there's a clever twist to each, a lot like what Leigh Bardugo does.

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 use of simple language to tell a surprisingly creepy story. Use of found photographs elevates a solid mid-list title to something special.

I loved these silly stories and the beautiful artwork. This really is a beautiful book and one I will be keeping in my library. I love the ribbon bookmark. Ransom Riggs is so creative and imaginative and I can´t wait to see what he writes next.
