I could seriously read 30 books in this series without getting old. I love the world, the characters, the action, the peculiarities. Even though I haven't read a book by Ransom in three years, cracking this open to page one felt like returning to an old friend and delving back into a story i'd only just put down.

I love that this book expands the characters' worldview and how their personalities begin to evolve. The way that they change and begin questioning a

And so our trilogy continues into book 4! Well if you are on to a good thing why not?

I enjoyed this one nearly as much as the very first book. It was long but easy to read and the pages seemed to race past. The characters are growing up and there are some very interesting scenes as a result. How would you feel if you used to date the grandfather of the boy you are now seeing? And how does he cope when he thinks you still love his (dead) granddad. This is the sort of problem you can come across w

5 Stars.

Wow, wow and wow. I was so nervous that this book would be worlds different from the original trilogy but it wasn't, it was perfect.

Firstly, the characters, oh my goodness, I love them so much. We got to know them on such a deeper level and I was not expecting that. I am still very emotional about this, I'm literally smiling non-stop right now. They are all so unique in their own little ways and it makes my heart very happy.

Going into this book, I hadn't the slightest clue what it was ab

My reaction, when thanks to Tahereh Mafi tweeting about it, I knew this book existed and all I could say was: I. AM. DECEASED.

The fourth book in Riggs' signature series plays out a bit like Iron Gold for me in that it's long and a little bit on the slow side sometimes, but it does a great job of expanding the world as built in the original trilogy too. Though Riggs doesn't do the four-POV route like Pierce Brown did - once again, Jacob's our sole POV character. But since he's about as new to the

When I started this book my main thought was "this is way to big". After finishing it all I can think about is how I want more. This book definitely has a different feel than the previous trilogy, but in all the best ways. It is a great continuation of the story. You get so wrapped up in the world that the pages just fly by. I'm excited to see where the series will go from here!

I hardly ever cry when it comes to books. But did I cry when I found out that Ransom Riggs was working on A Map of Days? You bet I did.

This novel follows the events in the previous three books. Go read those first for the best results!

The plot built up pretty slowly, but it continued to get more interesting along the way. At about page 400, the plot just… well, the only way I can describe it is like this: if the first 400 pages was l

The peculiars need to figure out how to live in the real world.
It was cute and funny but I wasnt in the mood for it I think so I will reread the whole series and try again later on and hopefully enjoy it more.

Oh my gosh! The title. The cover. I'm dying.

Every author I know has planned to release the new trilogy of the series that I've been following, but it's okay as it means I have something to read and look forward to for the next three years, at least.

*I'm soooooooooooo ready for this btw*

I didn’t realise how much I missed this world and it’s characters. Riggs’s writing is wonderful and paints the most vivid action and atmospheric scenes. Simply put, a captivating, magical, hypnotic and enchanting read.

Sinceramente non avevo nessun interesse verso questo libro. Per me la serie era finita e l’ultimo libro non mi aveva fatto impazzire.
Ma quando ho trovato una copia firmata e con contenuti speciali per un prezzo relativamente basso, non ho saputo resistere.
Questo libro riprende gli avvenimenti subito dopo l’ultimo libro della serie e rincontriamo tutti i personaggi.
La cosa particolare di questo libro è che è molto più politico dei precedenti, in cui l’autore esplora le parti del mondo da lui crea

I received an ARC of this book from Penguin Books in exchange for an honest review, this does not impact my thoughts on the book.
A Map of Days had been one of my long anticipated releases, although it occured to me that I ought to give the first three books in the Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children series a re read, so I could dive in to A Map of Days with full knowledge on the Peculiar world.
And I’m definitely glad I did, for the series quickly re established itself as a fast favourite

Questo inatteso seguito della saga dei Bambini Speciali non farà che piacere ai fan della serie!
Le vicende proseguono proprio da dove il terzo volume si era interrotto: gli Speciali sono rimasti a Devil's Acre, mentre Jacob è alle prese con la sua vita Normale, in attesa di terminare il liceo. Ma le cose stanno per cambiare e diventare davvero Speciali: tutti i ragazzi dell'anello di Miss Peregrine, con tanto di ymbrine, piombano a casa di Jacob, che si vede costretto a tentare di conc

A 4th book?? Start of a new trilogy?? Did not see this coming...but I am intrigued.
Über weite Strecken leider nur ein solider Dreitsterner - der Schluss (bzw. der Cliffhanger mit Platz für mehr) hat es wieder etwas aufgewertet.
Ich rechne mit mindestens 2 zusätzlichen Büchern. Und ja, es war vorher zu sehen, dass Jacob jetzt die Peculiars von Nordamerika entdeckt und es macht auch Sinn diesen Zweig weiter zu erforschen. Ich nehme mal auch an, dass die Mehrzahl der Leser Amerikaner sind - und der Ausflug nach Europa in den Bänden 1-3 irgendwie exotisch auf sie gewirkt haben muss

Not the best in the series. But I will most certainly read the next book.
The concept of seven new peculiars, that are super powerful, will be very interesting. Noor was also interesting, and I really hope that she is in more of the next book. I also am excited to see who this V is.
Ransom Riggs is very creative with the powers he gives his characters, and they way they work. Like how Noor can swallow light, and then blast it out of her mouth. Frankie, although a very minor character, was horrib

The peculiars are back and staying with Jacob in his Florida home. Life is like an extended vacation... until Jacob finds a hidden bunker in his grandfather's house. The peculiars are swept up in the secret world of hollow hunters, sent on a mission to find an undocumented peculiar by Abe's old partner H. I had thought this series was finished after Library of Souls, but was still pleasantly surprised when I saw A Map of Days.

I was so excited to see this and I loved it! Ransom Riggs has gotten back to the magic of his first book with this one. It picks up exactly where Library of Souls finished with Jacob and his friends finding each other again just as Jacob's parents are taking him to a mental institution.

After the showdown in the last book Jacob and his friends are heroes of the Peculiar world but still very much treated like children by Miss Peregrine and the other Ymbrynes. Resentments are growing amongst the r

The Peculiars have finally made it to America!!

My friends and I jumped at the chance to receive an advanced copy of this book at Ala. It was worth every minute we waited in line. I'm so over the moon that I'll finally have a galley of a Peculiars book to add to my collection.

Hi, I'm Ransom, and I like to tell stories. Sometimes I tell them with words, sometimes with pictures, often with both. I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish. I started writing stories when I was young, on an old typewriter that jammed and longhand on legal ...more

“All my life, normal people had mostly baffled me-the ridiculous ways they strove to impress one another, the mediocre goals that seemed to drive them, the banality of their dreams. The way people rejected anything that didn’t fit their narrow paradigm of acceptability, as if those who thought or acted or dressed or dreamed differently from them were a threat to their very existence.” 5 likes
