Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pelicular Children

A while ago, in our English class, every student had to pick a book they would like to read. Our teacher posted a blog post with books we can read. I wasn’t interested in any of them so I chose a book on my own. I picked a book that’s called ‘’The Painter of Shanghai’’. After I read few pages I decided to read another book. The reason why is because the language was a little bit difficult, and it was hard to understand. So I had to choose between:

1.       Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
2.       The book Thief by Markus Zusak
3.       Ender’s Game by Orson Scott
4.       Twice Toward Justice by Claudette Colvin
5.       The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
6.       Life of Pi by Yann Martel
7.       White Tiger by Aravind Adiga
I decided to read
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pelicular Children, a debut novel by Ransom Riggs. The book was published in 2011, so it’s quite new. 
When I first saw the book, I thought it would be a book about the WW2. Maybe because the cover was pretty old-school, and the girl looked sad and creepy. When I finally started to read the book, I thought it was about a young boy who wanted to find more about his grandfather’s life, but then it turned out to be a book that is more sci-fi then I thought. His grandfather told him stories about pelicular children, stories that where hard to believe in. But afterwards we get to know that all stories where true…
The book was pretty long, about 300 pages, but it was exciting to read an English book. In my opinion we should read more. We should read more books we enjoy to read and thanks to that we will improve our English skills and imaginary.
