“I had just come to accept that my life would be ordinary when extraordinary things began to happen” – Jacob. (Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.)
It’s like Harry Potter meets Alice in Wonderland meets X-Men meets American Horror Story! 🙂 yes it’s true. Let me tell you, I freakin’ love this book! It’s nothing like any other book I’ve read before. This book is truly peculiar and weirdly fun to read.I haven’t read this kind of stuff before and it’s really unique. I was already intrigued by its front cover right when I saw it on Barnes & Noble but I just kinda ignored it since I was looking for a more dystopian theme. But the book’s stuck in mind. That black and white cover with a girl levitating made me want to give it a try and I never regret purchasing it.
The book was already released in 2011 and I felt like “why didn’t I see this before?!”
No spoiler here, but let me tell you a little bit about the book. It’s a book filled with some pictures, perhaps around 50, and they help to tell the story. I think this was a brilliant idea because it keeps the book from being boring. The pictures are all in black and white and they’re all weird! some of them are even creepy.
My question is “Where can I enroll for this home for peculiars nowadays?” hahaha, I’m not peculiar at all, perhaps slight, “-) but I would like to develop my peculiar potential, LOL! God I wish I’m peculiar like those kids in the book. I don’t know what peculiar talent I would like to have, (P.S. I am really amused with Claire) but I kinda like Bronwyn’s 🙂
The movie’s coming out and I cannot wait anymore! they said it’s coming out in September of this year, then changed to December 25th, and lately they pushed it back this coming September 30th again. Puhhhleeeaaaze, don’t prolong my agony! Btw, Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Hugo, Ender’s Game) will play the role of Jacob, while my favorite actress Eva Green (Bond Girl) will be Miss Peregrine. Tim Burton is directing the film. Oh my…it’s gonna be great.
