Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs Partway through (p 204), and am finding that it's rather less horror/ghost story and more Harry Potter-ish than I was hoping. Finding protagonist a bit unlikeable, much like Coraline in the Coraline movie. Pictures are neat, but the two kids dressed up in the odd costumes which are supposed to be really creepy aren't creepy to me. Still, not bad; expect to finish it in a day or so.

(Have my suspicions about who we will find out they are, later. >.> )


Sadly disappointed at the lack of follow-through on the two "horribly creepy" kids. Oh well. Estimation of it being finishable in a day or so was pretty spot-on, I just took a break in the middle.

Find the protagonist somewhat annoying, but tolerably so. The extent to which this is part of a series cannot be underestimated. Kind of curious about where it's going, may pick up the next one, but won't be watching for it.
