Review: Hollow City

Title: Hollow City

Author: Ransom Riggs

Date of Publication: February 24th,  2015


Goodreads Summary:

This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.

My Review:

This is a fun and interesting series! I liked it just as much as the first one. Again, I like that Jacob actually feels like a teenager, and he isn’t a douche bag like a lot of YA books like to make the guys. He has a sweet personality.

I felt the book stayed pretty fast paced, and there were a lot of great characters! I really liked the way Riggs described the oddities scene because I am big on oddities! The photos within the book were just as awesome as they were in book one!

I still find it odd that all these little children are actually really old in kid’s bodies, so it still weirds me out with the romance. The ending of the book was not what I was expecting, and I’m ready for the next book!
