A Special Delivery

miss peregrine

A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel.  The photographs and text work brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.

– John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars

I’m very excited to have received this in the post yesterday from The Book Depository 🙂  It has completely surpassed my expectations with the beautiful detailing and black and white imagery throughout.  It is definitely a book you want to get in paperback rather than Kindle format, thats for sure.  Has anyone else read this? I would love to hear what you thought of it !!!                                                                                                                                              

I love too that if I enjoy this, there are two more follow up books and the movie is currently being made !!! Yipee 🙂 Anyway, just a short one for today as I couldn’t contain my excitement any longer or wait to review it !!! Have a great weekend guys xx

    I have wanted to grab that one for a while now but I have vowed not to buy any books in the near future… I seriously need to reduce my pile of unread paperbacks but it will be one of the first purchases on my list for sure.

    Looking forward to reading your review on it!

    Rewind back to a couple of months ago and I was exactly the same as you 😉 But I am definitely happy to have the option of either and I will always be loyal to the paperback. Are you thinking of getting an e-reader or do you have one already? Funnily enough, since acquiring my kindle, I have gone a bit crazy buying paperbacks, a knee jerk reaction I wonder to prove my loyalty? … lol 🙂

    I’ve read it a while back and I bought the 2nd book a year ago but I still got to read it! In fact, you’ve just motivated me to read it already so will pick it up soon. Hope you enjoy it, let us know. [:

        I gave it 3 stars but you seriously shouldn’t consider my rating because I rated it a while later after I’ve read it (which means I couldn’t recall my reading experience 100%) that’s why I actually started reading the first one all over again just this afternoon on the bus. I hope my rating’ll change! I hope I’ll enjoy the 2nd book and I hope you’ll enjoy the 1st, laughing!
        Have a great day ahead, Nicola. [:

        I just finished reading it and I really enjoyed it! 4/5 for the second time round and I’m hoping the second book’ll be a lot more better. I think what really made me give it one more star apart from the likeable characters was how just when you’d think it’s getting boring (not that I’ve thought so for a sec!) something would happen. I can’t say that the actions are realistic because the story itself is not but what I mean is it’s very realistic compared to some in other books where you’re left thinking “But how did he do it” or “How did he get away by just doing that?” Can’t wait to read the 2nd book and then move on to the final one, I don’t know if you’ve already read it by now but looking forward to hearing your thoughts. :]

        Hi Zin,
        Im so happy to hear you enjoyed it more second time round. Yay 🙂 I am about 110 pages in, I have found it to be a bit of a slow burner to be honest but I absolutely love the writing style. I have written down some beautiful quotes and I keep re-reading them !!! I am definitely sticking with it though as I have heard so many good things. xx

        Of course I believe, you should see me when I start 3 books in a row, not get even one finished and then start another one! And that’s exactly what’s happening to me right now, no worries, it’s always happening to us all. :]

    I’m really excited to start this book sometimes this year because of all the photos! I love stories that are told in a slightly creative manner. Also helps that a movie with Eva Green is coming out soon!

      I love stories that have a more creative spin to them as well. I am a visual person so that is why this book really appeals to me. Added to that, the spook factor and with Halloween around the corner, the timing for this book couldn’t be better 🙂 I hope you like it xx

    Huh! The odds! My brother’s fiance just picked up this book and showed it to me. I didn’t realize it was a thing (much less a series and a to-be-movie). Perhaps I’ll have to find time to read it when she’s done (and I finish like… 12 other books on my TBR… >.>) What exactly is the genre of this book?
