Book Review:

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.

Thoughts: This the first in a two part blogging series titled "Books I Read Last Year and Forgot to Tell You Guys About!"
 Honestly, this book tops the first. We travel a bit, meet new characters and get more face time with already familiar side characters! I loved all the time we got with the other children (not just Emma or Jacob) and all the character development!
 And the plot twists! I can't even really touch on plot without giving anything away but basically, don't trust anything! Nothing is as it seems!
 The writing is amazing. Despite being told from the point of view of a teenage boy everything comes out with a certain poetic flow that is captivating and even beautiful.

Content: Things get even darker in here than the first book so I'm talking really dark and kind of scary. There's violence and gore. A bit of language (D***, Sh**, C***). Kissing. An adult man is seen completely naked for a brief time before he's given pants. Another man leers over a young girl. Nothing inappropriate actually ends up happening. all in all, not a good bok for the timid or young, but another great installment for older teens and up!
