“…When we first met, I was convinced you were about to cut my throat. But scared as I was, there was this tiny voice in my head saying: If this is the last face you ever see, at least it’s a beautiful one.”
–Jacob to Emma
The Miss Peregrine series by Ransom Riggs is one of my favorite series. It combines several things that I am dearly fond of.
- A compelling historical fiction plot with endearing protagonists and creepy antagonists.
- The physical book is a beauty to behold and is a good weight (not too heavy and not too light). It’s well constructed with amazingly odd photographs, detailed end papers with a design that repeats itself at chapter and part breaks.
- Without the dust cover, the book appears to be an old classic with its silver inlaid title and decorations. And when placed side by side with book one is the series, it creates a lovely symmetrical tableau on my bookshelf.
