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.

“The Five People You Meet in Heaven” begins at Ruby Pier in the early 2000‘s however the setting and time period changes many times throughout while always following the main character, Eddie. Eddie was a maintenance worker who had worked at Ruby Pier his whole life. The book follows Eddie through the moments leading up to his death and the sadness he was feeling in his life considering his situation with his job and lonely home life. (comments)

emma.peto Not only does it follow him leading up to his death but it also follows him after his death where he is shown the part he played in many different peoples lives; some of the people he didn't even know but he still had a huge impact on them and their lives. A motif in this book would be birthdays. This is important because Eddie had died on his 83rd birthday. (another comment) 2y
emma.peto Throughout the book Mitch Albom makes Eddie revist many different important birthdays during his life that held great significance. If you like books that focus on the meaning of life and are full of emotion then this is a book you would really enjoy. I would rate this book a 3.5/5.
