Hollow City Review by Ransom Riggs @quirkbooks

You know that moment when you realize a book is going to be AS good as you thought it was going to be? And then you get knee deep into it and it’s BETTER?? Like out of the galaxy better?

Yeah this.  Hollow City you break my heart. To be sure, I loved Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Convinced myself even, that because my letter from Hogwarts didn’t arrive, that perhaps I might be destined to be peculiar.

Enter Hollow City.  And now I know I’m peculiar because I can’t love a book anymore than I love Hollow City.  I’m back with all of my peculiar siblings and we can now be proud of the peculiar things we do and we revel in how well these peculiar things help us get through the world! Bees?!! Floating little girls!?!

It’s great reading friends. So GREAT that I took my time reading.  My review was scheduled for a different day, but I couldn’t let go of my friends.  I didn’t want to read too much or too far, or too fast lest the book be over too soon.  But alas, and alack, the book came to an end.  My heart is broken for so many reasons, least of all because I must wait to discover what happens next to my friends.

BTW did you see the fun spin off Valentine’s Day cards I made from the ones that Quirk books made?  Check them out:
