Peculiarly Fast Read…In the Best Way!

Library of Souls

Library of Souls Ransom Riggs YA Fantasy Rating: 4.5

I’m back! It’s been over a year, but I’m FINALLY getting settled now…Graduated with an MLIS, getting comfortable with the new eResources job (I get to buy eBooks and eAudiobookss for 10 libraries!!), and my house is finally starting to look a home. The best part is that there is finally some time to read again 🙂

Since it’s almost Halloween, I thought it would be appropriate to read the last book in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Library of Lost Souls. It definitely didn’t disappoint. I brought this book with to read during the four days I’m out of town for a conference…it only lasted the first night. It was addicting and almost impossible to put down.

Library Souls starts out right where it left off, in the middle of an action scene where it seems all hope is lost. Now, I will admit to skimming some of the action fights and “scary” stuff (it’s more creepy than scary, but I’m a wuss). The heart of the book is awesome though. Discovering who you are, making tough decisions, trust, families, and of course a little bit of romance. Jacob, the gifted hollowgast seer, is the main character once again and remains relatable despite his peculiarness. He struggles with confidence, trust, and ultimately discovering who he is all while trying to save his peculiar friends and beloved ymbryne from the Wights.

Action-packed and beautifully written, I highly recommend this series (if only for the great pictures!).

Expect more reviews shortly! Now what to read over the next 2 days….
