Lovely readers you are in for a treat!  I have Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children {Book 1}, Hollow City {Book 2} and the Graphic Novel of Book 1 bundled up ready to fly away to a new home!  Any takers?



The first novel sets the stage with sixteen year old Jacob stumbling into an old abandoned orphanage on a remote island off the coast of Wales.  In the abandoned orphanage, Jacob discovers photos of children with strange peculiarities. . .

IMG_4669Filled to the brim with old photos that border on creepy and horrific, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a fascinating tale intertwining history, mystery, science fiction and a bit of fantasy.  The old photos add a touch of  “could that really have happened” fantasy while the storyline keeps you immersed in Jacob’s tragic situation.

Hollow City picks up just where Miss Peregrine leaves off so if you have issues with waiting on the next in a series, kind of like I do, then getting this bundle will be perfect for you!  As with Miss Peregrine the old photos will have you immersed in Jacob’s tale along with the addition of a menagerie of characters and animals.

The graphic novel is definitely a departure from my normal repertoire.  Honestly? I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the comic-book-style story.  If you’re not a graphic novel person like myself – this is a good one to get you started.

The giveaway ends on Friday, August 29th at 11:59 pm.  One winner will be selected at random to receive all three books – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City, and the Graphic Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  This giveaway is open to all, international friends included 🙂  Please enter via promo simple entry form below.  Good luck!
