YARLI reads “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”


YARLI (Young Adult Readers of Lopez Island) Book Group

At the last meeting on September 22nd, 8 readers discussed Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs. The general consensus was that the writing was good and the idea of the photos was intriguing. Some people loved the “peculiar’ content, other thought it was too peculiar. Compared to the original book, the graphic novel was deemed too abridged with not enough depth.




Other books members recommended were:

The House of Scorpion, by Nancy Farmer

Deerskin, by Robin McKinley

Upcoming meeting dates & books are:

27 October – Skellig, by David Almond (a slightly spooky novel for Halloween)

24 November – Island of the Blue Dolphins, by Scott O’Dell (historical fiction)

22 December – share any youth book
