This was an interesting read. There were some parts that had me on the edge of my seat. The ending definitely has me wondering what will happen in the next book. I can‘t wait to see what happens next. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had no intention of falling off the radar again, but here we are again!

I've been keeping busy with my new job, but I've still reading a good bit, too, so I have a few reviews I need to get posted sometime soon (including the predecessor to the tagged book, my current read).

In the meantime, hello from Sphinx and I!

Book 28 of 2021. I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. I felt like it was a long setup for the next book. Will I read the third book? Of course...and the ones after it! 🤣😂 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2nd book. Absolutely amazing, not as good as the first but still worth reading. 😃

We rowed out through the harbor, past bobbing boats weeping rust from their seams, past juries of silent seabirds roosting atop the barnacled remains of sunken docks, past fishermen who lowered their nets to stare frozenly as we slipped by, uncertain whether we were real or imagined; a procession of waterborne ghosts, or ghosts soon to be.

The book Hollow City is the second book in a four book series written by Ransom Riggs. Hollow City takes place mainly in 1940s Europe, however, the year and location change many times throughout the duration of the book. The book is about ten kids who are peculiar and are watched over by their headmistress, Miss Peregrine.

emma.peto They are part of a particular society that is crumbling because there are monsters referred to as ‘Hollows‘ and ‘Wights' who are trying to destroy all peculiars. Peculiars are people who have special abilities. As the book continues Miss Peregrine gets poisoned by a Wight and is then unable to transform out of her bird form.

emma.peto With Miss Peregrine slowly diminishing the ten kids must travel through time and across a war-ridden world in an attempt to save, not only their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine, but also the entire peculiar community. If you like books that are based on a fantasy world and are full of action you would absolutely fall in love with this series.

emma.peto Hollow City is written in first person point of view, the author establishes this by using the pronouns “we” and “I”. I would rate this book a solid 4/5.

I finished my re-read of Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. I liked this one better than I did the first in my re-read, I'm guessing because there was a lot more action in this book. It's a solid 3 star for sure. I wouldn't go as high as 4 or 5 just because I'm admittedly over the age for this genre, but I did enjoy it. Now I'm trying to decide between starting the re-read of the third book, or re-reading my new birthday gift, Fahrenheit 451. 🤓📖🤔

The first one seemed to have a bit more mystery and puzzle aspect to it as we learn about Peculiars and their world. This one was one action scene after another, though I guess that's what I signed up for? I do love the photos and the creative ways the author fits them into the stories, but I may take a small break from this series as I suspect action-packed is the way the rest of them go as well.

While better than the first, I still felt like the plot was so forced. I wasn‘t able to process a scene that happened before another “bad thing” was shoved into the narrative. At this point the found pictures are just being shoehorned into the books. As something off key to the plot is occurring, I know I‘m going to turn the page to find a picture. I‘m so frustrated that I know this is a series and I have to finish it. 😭

Even though I wasn‘t convinced by the first in this series I wanted to give the second a go. This was a much better read for me - lots of action and a twist I didn‘t see coming. I‘ll definitely read the third now.

I‘ve been taking my time with this series. It‘s a credit to the writer that Book 1 by itself is an impressive read. That you can take a break from this genre without forgetting this tale and return to Book 2 with the same fervency. And it doesn‘t disappoint. Hollow City pushes the story to a greater landscape filled with perils both physical and emotional. Can‘t wait to find out how #LibraryOfSouls unfolds! #Fantasy #GenreJuggler #BigPileOfTBR

So many incredible characters who didn't get their due in this book. I needed some more time with a few. I don't want to spoil anything but a great addition to the series and a great audio reread! Fun fact: I thought I hated Kirby Heyborne as a narrator because he did a book I thought was so awful. Turns out he was PERFECT for this and does wonderful British and Scottish accents, as far as my American ear can hear. ❤

tjwill What was the other book you listened to Kirby Heyborne perform? I love him as a narrator. I‘ve listened to many books that he has done! 3y
IamIamIam @tjwill It was a really awful book about grave robbers. It wasn't his fault but I connect his voice with that horrible book! Lol 3y
IamIamIam @tjwill I'm not adverse to grave robbing as a topic... wait, that sounds weird... but the characters were badly written and that made it all crap out. 3y

I recall loving the way the story progressed but I forgot how much I began to hate Enoch and how whiny and self pitying Jacob is. 🙄 I can't wait for the twins, though!

Like reading under the covers at night at a sleepover. I liked this book much better than the first one. A lot more character development, a better understanding about some of the specifics of their world— just better all around. Jacob still irritates me, but the other characters make up for it.

OOF I‘M LATER THAN USUAL! Today‘s #colormepretty is #monochromatic!

Hollow City was great. I loved the Miss Peregrine‘s trilogy, and was not disappointed with the end. I haven‘t read the new one, though.

Hush, Hush was one of the books at the height of the YA angel thing. I didn‘t like it and only read the first.

The Dark Deceit is the third book of a series I started reading on Wattpad and is something I consider a guilty pleasure.

Seth and I just finished this. I preferred this, but Seth‘s view was he preferred the first book as he thought it was more original. He thought this one was (his words) “let‘s go on a quest, we do the quest, something goes wrong” and was very much like lots of other stuff he‘s been reading. Really interesting to get his take on it, especially now he‘s getting older and can contribute more than just “it was ok...” 😆 #raisingreaders

I am loving these books!! I can‘t believe it took me this long to finally get to them. I finally broke down and got an audio book from the library the other day (the first book in the series) while I‘ve been laid up in bed, not in much of a condition to read a physical book. They‘re not too bad.
