Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2011) by Ransom Riggs; Publisher:  Quirk Books

I love this series.  I’ve been a fan of the use of old pictures while telling fictional stories, so when I found this series at the bookstore, I snatched it up.  The pictures add sometimes a somber, melancholy, even a intense atmosphere to the story’s focus.  One of my favorite parts actually comes from the final book in the series, when Jacob is rescued.  I found the initial aspects of the series:  the question of madness or reality, perception and illusion, incredibly riveting.  Great to read.  I haven’t watched the film, but I’m very curious indeed.

Curiousity Thrilled the Cat; Magical Cats Mysteries by Sofie Kelly; Publisher:  Berkley

I found this series by accident when rummaging around library shelves–some of my favorite places to find new writers and books to read–especially with incurrent pay.  Sofie Kelly is delightful.  I love reading about the antics of the cats.  This is a cozy mystery series, so there’s plenty to thrill and enjoy for anyone who loves mysteries and interesting characters.  Although I have been reading via library subscription, I will be adding these treasures to my personal library very soon.  I heartily recommend them to anyone who likes cozy mysteries and cats.  Hercules and Owen are cuties, and the main character Kathleen is interesting.  I won’t reveal twists and turns, because each book is different, but I’ve read books 1-7 in less than a week…Thank you Sofie Kelly!  Keep writing, please!
