Hollow City Reviews

    Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is one of my all-time favorite books and I've been waiting to read Hollow City for ages! As soon as I received Hollow City, I began to devour this strange book and I believe Hollow City is even better than Mrs. P's. Hollow City does an excellent job of creating a captivating, magical world and accompanying the plot with finely selected vintage photos.

    The photographs in Hollow City are just as bizarre and out

    Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is one of my all-time favorite books and I've been waiting to read Hollow City for ages! As soon as I received Hollow City, I began to devour this strange book and I believe Hollow City is even better than Mrs. P's. Hollow City does an excellent job of creating a captivating, magical world and accompanying the plot with finely selected vintage photos.

    The photographs in Hollow City are just as bizarre and outlandish as the ones in the first book. I love the way the photos tie into the story and how each photo seems to tell a story of it's own. Each photo provides readers with a visual treat and I feel like reading Hollow City in a physical book is an extraordinary experience. I'm not diminishing audiobooks and ebooks at all, but there's something beautiful and raw about seeing the photographs on a page and not a screen.

    It was exciting to see the world outside of Cairnholm (Miss P's island) and to read about the Peculiar children who are traveling to London. The first novel in the series had a very closed environment to it and it was amazing to see the expanded world of the Peculiars. The world-building in Hollow City is thorough and readers will be brought to new loops where there are peculiar animals and other unexpected creatures (for lack of a better term). I loved visiting so many varied locations and reading about the distinct Peculiar locals.

    I loved learning more about the Peculiar children in Hollow City and character development is one of Riggs's strongest suits. It was interesting to see Olive, Hugh, and Emma's characters explored further and to see what effects the loop had on them. To live the same moments all over again for so many years is truly a horrifying thing and in some ways, the children are adults trapped in childrens' bodies. The way Emma took charge of the group, when all her life she was cared for by Mrs. P, was truly impressive. I love both Emma and Jacob, but still I don't get their relationship and it feels out of place and extremely unnecessary in this series.

    Hollow City is incredibly fast-paced with an interesting story that fans of Mrs. Peregrine's will absolutely love. With plenty of unexpected twists, Hollow City is quite frankly one of the best sequels I've read to date and it definitely surpasses it's predecessor. Ransom Riggs is at his best in Hollow City and his cinematic prose will provide readers with a story unlike any other. When Hollow City came to its satisfying conclusion, I had an urge to reread the book and relive the strangely magically novel all over again. I know I'll be rereading this in the near future as I wait for the 3rd Miss Peregrine's novel to be released.

    Hollow City is a wonderful sequel that is an absolute must read and it's truly upsetting how there's only one more book left in this series. Hollow City is a much faster-paced book than it's predecessor in terms of plot and character development. Riggs is an amazing author and frankly I'd read anything this man writes. Excuse me, while I wait for the 3rd and final book in this series...

    HOLY CRAP. I CAN'T EVEN. I'll write my thoughts when I'm able to GATHER my thoughts, but know that I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH.

    I'm so happy that I decided to reread this! I forgot how crazy that ending was. :o I THINK I'M READY FOR LIBRARY OF SOULS NOW... I THINK. MAYBE NOT, BUT IT'S COMING WHETHER I'M READY OR NOT.

    More like 4.5 stars. Really enjoyed this book, just not quite as much as the first one! Loving the series overall so far, and can't wait for book 3 this fall!
