Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #2
Pub. Date: 2014
Type: Fiction ~ Library Book
Rating: Liked it ♥
This is a follow-up to Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children which I liked, and I liked this book just as much. This book begins where the first one left off so there is no break in time or action.
There is continuiety in this novel, no one really acts out of character, and things that may seem to be odd or unreasonable are explained at the end. I don’t want to risk giving anything away if you haven’t read the first book. But if you liked the first book, you will like this book.
The story advances, the bad guys are still pursuing, the children find friends in unexpected places, and since they are children, at times make childish mistakes. The ending is not an ending, there is going to be a third book. Overall, an enjoyable read.
The next book is due to come out in 2015. It takes Mr. Riggs so long to write these books because he’s a coal miner by day (I don’t know if he really is, that is just what it says on his website).
I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
