Today's calendar is about a new adventure I started exploring this evening. This particular book with a hovering little girl in the cover, wonderful and so creepy at the same time. It's an international best seller so I'm sure many of you have heard of it, but I thought about making a post about it anyway for I believe there are potential new readers here. :) It's a story about a mysterious island, abandoned orphanage and a strange collection of very peculiar photographs: Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar Children.
I bought the book in the springtime out of curiosity, after many recommendations from readers. The last nails to the coffin were the praises of my spouse's sister and so I placed an order. But then I forgot the book under a pile of paperwork and other stories and dust bunnies and tasks for many months to come. Do you ever have books in your bookshelf or in the piles on the floor that you've never ever read? I wonder how this happens to me, I have so many books waiting to be wolfed down into my imagination and still I often read the same ones over again.
Sadly I do not have much to say about this book for I have only read three and a half chapters, but the odd and astonishing vintage photos (which are real, I heard, with a few modifications) and the haunting atmosphere show some indication of the book's nature. I can't wait to unwind the authors web of mystery! But before that I should probably get some sleep, if only I could put the book down.
