Book Review: “The Conference of the Birds”

I was pretty excited to read this book, since I've been a fan of the series for several years. When the fourth book came out, I was actually rather surprised because it had seemed like the series was over. I ended up really enjoying the fourth book (almost more than the original series actually) and so this fifth book was one I waited somewhat impatiently for. In the meantime, I reread the first three books, since I was starting to forget what had happened. I loved them even more than the first time I read them!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

This book always seemed to catch my eye. But for some reason, probably my general bustling busyness, I didn’t read it. Man, oh man, was I in for a treat! When I finally did read it, I was astounded, not only by the quality, but also by the ingeniousness in the central ideas.
