Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs I was expecting a creepy tale that would keep me awake at night, but what do I get? A book with a predictable plot, cardboard characters, and a totally unbelievable romance. *sigh*

Actually, I take that back. There was one thing creepy about this book: the romance. Emma was a lover to both Jacob and his grandfather? Jacob himself admits that it's kind of like incest! Um ... ew?

Time travel plots also have a history of being nonsensical (look at Edge of Tomorrow or X-Men: Days of Future Past), and this is no exception.

Also, Riggs didn't do a good job of incorporating the pictures into the story at all.

Such a disappointment.
