Happy Sunday!!! I hope your all enjoying the last day of your weekend, and the beautiful weather outside!
I feel like a bad blogger for not updating in 4 days. Bad Crissy! Yes, I am scolding myself! lol It's been a very long, busy, yet amazing week! I was able to attend a book signing for Maureen Johnson at Blue Willow Book Shop. I adore the book store, and all its staff, and Maureen is amazing!!! I had a blast! I also attended the Austin Teen Book Festival on Saturday. Words cannot describe! I think I will have to do an entire post dedicated just to this. So with that being said, time for my review!

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. 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 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.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
