Books, You Guys!

I read a lot of everything. Mostly fantasy and sci-fi, or speculative fiction or Slipstream or New Weird or whatever we're calling it now, some comics, some literary fiction, mysteries, la dee da. And...well. I do like a kissin' book.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs A pretty charming little fantasy story, built around real, vintage found photographs. The photos are a lot of fun, the world is interesting, and there's a lot of humor. I can see why it's being compared to Harry Potter, but I wouldn't go that far. It's too uneven, particularly the dialogue--which is often clever, but seldom believable. Still, it's a good enough time that I'll probably continue the series.
