Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Series: Book Reviews

I started this series quite awhile ago and finally finished it this week. There were many breaks taken between each book which is why it took so long to finish. The first one took me the least amount of time because I read it during a breakup so I kind of used it to mentally distract me from my life (nonetheless it was pretty good). The second one was very slow for me and didn’t really have an exciting parts to keep me intrigued. The third and last book is what brought it all together for me though. I read this book on the way back from a trip to the Dominican and I don’t even remember most of the trip back because I had my nose in this book the entire time. They wrapped up the series very well and had me wondering what was going to happen to Jacob right up until the last couple pages. There was a lot of action and twists in this last book that I didn’t see coming which surprised me but kept me in it till the end.

Synopsis: A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs. A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s  Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

Overall, the series was pretty good, I just wish the middle book had a little more sustenance to get me through it faster. The first and the last book were well done though so I am glad for that because I find a lot of series don’t have the best endings.

Book Series Rating: 4/5

  1. I read the first one MONTHS ago. Then I started the second one and.. found it boring. It’s been lying somewhere [I don’t even remember where at this point] ever since.. I know I won’t be reading it this year; too much on my plate and I’m battling a reading slump. [I really feel like growling at that slump..] Next year, though! Definitely next year! I don’t want to end up with ten series to finish by September. Not again. :’D
