Contest: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs - CLOSED

Well, now, I have not done one of these in ages! About time we had another contest around here, right? And Quirk Books generously agreed to help me give away a copy of Hollow City by Ransom Riggs!

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, Book 2)

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011—an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it “an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.”

This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.

(Summary from goodreads.)

  1. I haven't read this book yet, but it is definitely one of the tops in my list of books/series I am going to read.

    1. That's awesome! Thanks for the comment :)

  2. Awesome! I am super excited to read the 1st book; and even more excited to read the second!

    1. :D It is really good. Remember though, hon, that this is not a review, and therefore won't count towards that entry in the contest. The review for Hollow City is now posted, though!

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. Okay! I commented on the Miss Peregrine's review! Sorry about the deleted comment up there if you noticed, I accidentally said Hollow instead of Miss Peregrine's.

    4. Yes, I see your comment on my Miss Peregrine review, but I believe you also put the entry for a comment on the Hollow City review, which *mutters mutters* I sorta messed up posting and thought was live when it was not.

      If you'd like to add that entry for the Hollow City review, feel free :)

  3. I've heard many great things about this book!
