Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #2)
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011—an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it “an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.”

This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.

    2.5 stars. // I don't know what happened, but I did not enjoy this book that much. It really surprised me, because I really did enjoy the first book in this series! But this continuation just felt so incredibly different. ...

    I absolutely freaking adored this book! I didn't think it possible to get better than the first book but it most definitely did. The story is even more gripping and as I got to know more about the world of peculiars, I couldn't help but fall even more in love. This book is jam packed w...

    I definitely enjoyed this book more than the first installment when I read it a two years ago. There were definitely slower moments that were rough to get through, but ultimately, I really enjoyed how the plot progressed in this novel and cannot wait to see how it ends! ...

    I need the next book now. I haven't thought that I'd like this book as much as I did. This was better than the first one! I didn't love the characters in the first book as much as I did in this one. I'm glad I continued with this series. I can't wait for the last book to come out. ...

    Truly a direct sequel that doesn't even let us take a breath between the last action of the first book before we're hunted by baddies, we're going crazy to fix poor Miss Peregrine, and before we solve the new mysteries of new photos.It's a good setup and a good adventure. They obviousl...

    The peculiar children are on the run! Danger at every turn! Until finally...okay, there's a twist thrown in. While Ransom Riggs' Hollow City is a well-written sequel in which we learn more about the nature of the peculiars (and their enemies), overall, I wasn't as wowed or intrigued. T...

    “What I believe is that when it comes to big things in life, there are no accidents. Everything happens for a reason. You are here for a reason -- and it's not to fail and die.” Hollow City is DARKER and CREEPIER than book one. I was really glad to finally see what's going ...
