I am currently reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I'm about a quarter of the way through, and so far I really like it!
I'm only supposed to share two sentences here, but for this to make any sense at all, it's going to be a few more than that. My first one and I'm already breaking the rules!
"Though it was true there was no one left alive whom I could talk to about my grandfather, there was still the house, a lot of it unexplored. If it had ever held answers about my grandfather - in the form of letters, maybe, or a photo album or a diary - they'd probably burned up or rotted away decades ago. But if I left the island without making sure, I knew I'd regret it.
"And that is how someone who is unusually susceptible to nightmares, night terrors, the Creeps, the Willies, and Seeing Things That Aren't Really There talks himself into making one last trip to the abandoned, almost-certainly-haunted house where a dozen or more children met their untimely end."
Are you intrigued? I hope so!
