Throwback Thursday #76 - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while which looks at those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves that we haven't got round to reading yet...

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Randsom Riggs
Publisher: Quirk
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, 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 who once lived here - one of whom was his own grandfather - were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow - impossible though it seems - they may still be alive...

This looks very different. I have the hardback copy so it is full of these creepy pictures...I really should get round to reading it!

What creepy books have you not read yet...?


  1. Yes, you need to read it. I loved the way the pics were incorporated into the story! So creative!

  2. Oh yes! I've forgot about this one. I remember people reading this one. Thanks for joining in. :)
