So now for the news! A few weeks ago, Quirk Books contacted me and asked if I'd like to get my hands on a copy of the brand new paperback edition. (Huge thanks to Eric at Quirk btw!) Even if you already have this book in hardback you may want to pick up the paperback as well. It's got an interview with Ransom Riggs, even more pictures and a first look at the upcoming sequel Hollow City! That's right, the sequel now has a name and a release date: January 14th, 2014. I can't freaking wait! This book is more than a story it's a perfect example of found art and I encourage each and every one of you to pick it up.

Even More Miss Peregrine for Your Nightmare Needs!
Hey guys, I just wanted to let you all know about a couple of really awesome things that have come to my attention in the last several weeks. Both have to do with one of my favorite books of all time, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children! For those of you who aren't familiar with this creepy, weird and altogether crazy-amazing book, it is a novel based around real antique photographs collected by the author. The photos are so strange he had to write a book about them. Miss Peregrine's came was first published in 2011 to wide acclaim. It is the story of a young man who finds out that his late grandfather's stories about a mysterious house full of odd children with supernatural abilities might not just be stories. You can read my review here. And even though I've linked it before, I'll link the book trailer again for you, because you can't watch it too many times. It's still, hands down, the best book trailer I've ever seen.
