Miss Peregrine headmistress of the Home for Peculiar Children, is a character in a book that I read. 

My Review 

The book takes us into the strange lives of gifted children; a levitating girl, an invisible boy and the bird which they call Miss Peregrine. A peregrine falcon is her moniker of course. She takes good care of the children.

Jacob is different too, but everyone else thinks he’s crazy. His grandfather would tell him stories of children with different abilities. At first, he didn’t believe the stories his grandfather told were real, but only fairytales and he desperately wanted to believe him. After Abe is killed, a psychiatrist was called in to help Jacob through his recurring nightmares. BUT….. Dr. Golan is a very dangerous man.

Jacob journeys to Cairnholm with his father, where Miss Peregrine’s home is and where Abe spent most of his childhood, intent on investigating and resolving his many questions about the life and death of his grandfather. Abe could see monsters (Wights and Hollowgast) but so could Jacob. Seeing monsters were their gift that had an extraordinary purpose.

“…and there is the hidden branch—the crypto-sapiens, if you will—who are called syndrigast, or ‘peculiar spirit’ in the ancient language of my ancestors. As you have no doubt surmised, we here are of the next type.”Miss Peregrine to Jacob Portman

“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never normal. I had only failed to notice how extraordinary it was. Likewise, I never imagined that home might be something I would miss. As we stood loading our boats in the breaking dawn, on a brand new precipice of before and after, I thought of everything I was about to leave behind— and then I realized that leaving wouldn’t be like I had imagined, like casting off weight. Their memory was something tangible and dense, and I would carry it with me. And yet my old life was as impossible to return to as the children’s bombed house. The doors had been blown off our cages.”Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children

I imagine the newly released movie I want to see is just as fantastic. But I don’t know if I like Eva Green playing the role of Miss Peregrine. I mean after seeing her play a badass kickass Artemisia in 300: Rise of an Empire, it’s just not cool with me. I’d rather like to see new actors in this film I think.

    I watched the movie around last month (because the books are too expensive for me :P) and I liked it, although it could have been better! 🙂
    What about you?

      Well, I haven’t seen the movie yet actually. I liked the book, though. I read the whole series. The second book wasn’t my fave, and the third book was okay.

        I see 🙂 , well, I believe the books are better than the movie (common book lover stereotype here, don’t mind me), but you should watch it when you have the time! 😀

        Followed you, too, hope you will do some more of movie/book recommendation posts in the future! XD
