Wibbly Wobbly Wednesdays is a new feature on this blog where we talk about any book that has something to do with the concept of time. The book may be about time travel, set in the past or future, or just has a bizarre timeline. If you are a Whovian, you know what we're talking about! :)
Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, # 1)Title: Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
Author: Ransom Riggs
Hardcover: 348 pages
Synopsis (via Goodreads):
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

We read this a while back and just remembered that this book actually had time travel in it. We decided that it would be perfect if we used this book for the Wibbly Wobbly Wednesdays feature this week. Not only was it creepy, it also had cool time travel portions. We admit that it was quite awkward to realize that the love interest in this story was also the love interest of the grandfather but we just try to ignore that as much as possible. Anyway, we really enjoyed the parts about time travel and how the past was shown.
