by Ransom Riggs

The sequel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City is the continuance of the journey of Jacob and his newly found peculiar friends. After leaving the island of Cairnholm, Miss Peregrine's wards search for escape from the wights and hollowgasts that seem to be everywhere. They learn that their headmistress can only be helped by a fellow ymbryne, so they devote themselves to finding the one yet to be captured.

I like this book a lot, it was exciting to learn that there will be another coming afterwards. I love how Ransom Riggs uses real, vintage photographs to tie together the intricate story. I can really visualize what he writes, which is very fun. Another thing I loved was that it took place in 1940 primarily, which is an era I'm interested in.

I would recommend this book to people who like strange stories, facts, old things, or the first book in the series. Anyone who is interested in the 1940's, strange phenomena, or just an exciting, cute story will likely adore this novel.
