Review: Ok, so I have heard a lot of hype around this book (& now the series) and I wasn’t too sure what I was going to think about this..
I actually loved this book! I was surprised at how drawn in I was to this, from the moment I started reading – I could not put it down! I ended up reading it in 2 days and it did not disappoint at any point.
Now I am looking forward to reading the second and third (and then wait for the film to come out!).
Another great little detail about this book, is that it is set in Wales – represent!
If you haven’t read this book yet, it is about a small home in North Wales where ‘Peculiar Children’ stay. They are all different, some have powers, some have odd appearances but there is a reason why they are kept away and there is a big twist but I feel like I cannot say, as it will pretty much ruin the whole book!
I would definitely recommend picking up this book, and I have heard that Tim Burton is going to be directing the film, if I think correctly?
Have you read this or the series? Show me your love or hate for this!
