Review - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I believe in thunderbolts and butterflies,

Hey Bookworms,

Today I finally bring you a review and a very positive plus lengthy one at that.

The quote is from the song Cinderella by Diana Vickers. I picked the quote because I've missed her music and am really loving that song at the moment. Anticipating another spectacular album soon from her.

Back to the actual review :

Book name - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Author - Ransom Riggs
Page count - 352 pages
Time spent reading - 12th June - 15th June
Review :
After waiting almost five months to read this due to a long reservation list at the library it was finally mine and I had extremely high hopes for it.
This is because I saw the splendid book trailer, was aware that my favourite director was planning to film an adaptation of it and my favourite booktuber loves it.
It certainly didn't disappoint as it's now in my top favourite books of all time and of this year.
If I was to describe the plot I'd use these words/phrases : time travel, self-discovery , family history, phenomenal photographs , heart-warming romance, war, peace, monsters and some very peculiar children.
During this reading experience I :
Was taken on an emotional roller-coaster ride
Became  overly-attached to all the wonderful characters
Was chilled to the bone by the despicable hollowgasts and wights
Pined over the photos endlessly
In addition to being able to visualise it as a movie .
My local Waterstones branch better watch out as I'll be dashing in there like a madwoman to purchase my own hardcover copy as soon as possible. Obviously I'll be first in line to buy the graphic novel,sequel and film ticket as well when they're released.
You can probably already guess the rating , but it is here anyway :
5 out of 5 stars
