Me on Waiting on Wednesday (151)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Hollow City
Author: Ransom Riggs
Release Date: January 14, 2014
Publisher: Quirk Books

From Goodreads:

In 1940 after the first book ends, Jacob and his new Welsh island friends flee to London, the Peculiar capital of the world. Caul, a dangerous madman, is Miss Peregrine’s brother, and can steal Peculiar abilities for himself. The Peculiars must fight for survival, again.

Okay, the description leaves a lot to be desired, but it's okay. I know that this is going to be just as creepy and different and unique and enchanting as the first book. I hope there will be as many photographs in this as there were in the first. Half of the story is in the photographs, as odd and spooky as they are.


  1. I haven't heard about thi book before, thanks for sharing.

  2. I have not read the first book yet although I've been meaning to with all the praise around it.
    I hope you enjoy this second book as much as the first one. :) And yes, photographs definitely make a book scarier.

  5. Great choice! (I picked this one a couple of weeks ago -- great minds think alike!) I really can't wait, and I agree: the pictures add so much to the story!
