Baker Street Irregulars
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

 

Fairies, changelings, witches, circus/carnival 'oddities'.

Just children with odd paranormal abilities abandoned by their parents and now in hiding.

 

I'm not sure if I like Miss. Peregrine or not.  

Not letting the children change at all seems a bit odd.  

Locking everyone locatable from the same year into a loop, which has apparently been going on since the dawn of time - maybe I'm missing something.

 

I am looking forward to book 2 though.  AFTER the bingo game.

Halloween Bingo 2018 - Relics and Curiosities
The Story of the Amulet - H.R. Millar,E. Nesbit

I love how Nesbit doesn't dumb anything down for her readers. I had to go and look up 'oricalchum'. 

 

 

This could also work for 'Cryptozoology'. Don't worry though, the psammead isn't dangerous, just a sarcastic little bastard with a superiority complex.

Reading progress update: I've read 65%.
The Story of the Amulet - H.R. Millar,E. Nesbit

I wish you could have seen all the honours and kindnesses lavished on the children and the learned gentleman by those ancient Britons. You would have thought, to see them, that a child was something to make a fuss about, not a bit of rubbish to be hustled about the streets and hidden away in the workhouse.

 

E Nesbit. Not just a good author, but also a damn fine human being.
