A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. Ooo I'm intriqued.
Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Children by Ransom Riggs. A follow-up to the best-selling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children begins in 1940 with Jacob and his new friends escaping from Miss Peregrine's island and traveling to London, where they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals and other unexpected surprises.
1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions... A classic, and easily the greatest, most haunting book I've ever read. Everyone MUST read.
"For there would be a real pleasure in watching it. He would be able to follow his mind into its secret places. This portrait would be to him the most magical of mirrors. As it had revealed to him his own body, so it would reveal to him his own soul." -The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
“Pause, you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.”
