Hollow City (Mrs Peregrine's Peculiar Children) by Ransom Riggs

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2014: In Hollow City, Ransom Riggs continues the story that mesmerized readers in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. With their island home compromised, and Miss Peregrine trapped in her bird state, Jacob and the other peculiars flee into the larger world and find themselves in war-torn 1940’s London. On those broken streets, with "blacked out windows staring like lidless eyes," Jacob learns to trust himself, finds comfort in belonging, and falls over the precipice into love. As in his earlier novel, Hollow City is filled with eerily fascinating vintage photographs, and like a seasoned magician Riggs seamlessly incorporates them into a story already so well established in many ways that such a feat seems remarkable

    Hi super excited to meet everyone although I have a confession to make. I thought we were reading the first book so that's what I just finished. I'll try to get to the second one but either way I am really looking forward to the discussion and meeting everyone :)

    Hi conversationalists,
    I'm very much looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday but I have to confess that I haven't read a single page of the book. Clearly it's the outstanding company of you folks which will be bringing me to The Old Spaghetti Factory. My life has gone from a bit crazy to outright insane and I'm relishing the opportunity to just chill with a glass of wine in my hand and listen to you all discuss what I'm sure is an amazing book. See you all on Wednesday.
    Cheers,
    Maggie
