Past: Hollow City (ebook) by Ransom Riggs
This is the 2nd in the series of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children. The first book really takes off about half way through, but this sequel is action all the way through. By the end of Hollow City, I knew I had found a series in which I would be sad when it was over and miss the characters. Hollow City took me by surprise with it’s non-stop
Present: Library of Souls (ebook) by Ranson Riggs
This is a direct continuation from the first two in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. The story continues to get darker and darker, not something I was expecting when I started reading the first book. So far the, fast-pace of Hollow City continues into Library of Souls. I love stories in which a group must come together to fight evil, and this series fills that desire. I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t know if it covers all three books, but you must start with the first one. These books are not stand-alones.
Present: Tigerman (audio) by Nick Harkaway
Just as he is about to retire, British General Lester Ferris has been assigned to “police” the island of Mancreu. Among the colorful characters of the island village in which Lester resides is a street kid who speaks in Wester comic book and pop culture phrases. Ferris knows the island is about to be condemned for its toxic pollutants and realizes he wants to adopt the boy before this happens. But does the boy have his own family? Ferris also realizes the island has a dark, seedy side involving drug trade and much more. He finds it easier to impress his young friend by taking on the criminals of Mancreu–as Tigerman–instead of directly asking the boy to come with him.
After a slow, but not boring, build-up, I’m loving this story. I know I’m taking the risk of getting my heart broken, but that is part of being a lover of a good story.
