CLOSED Giveaway: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Paranormal, 352 pages
June 7th 2011 from Quirk Publishing

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.


I mentioned yesterday in my interview with Ransom Riggs that there was going to be a chance to win a copy (or 3) of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children; I also mentioned that Ransom created the trailer for the book himself, and that it is awesome.  Check it out:

  8. I would be invisible. Yes, for all you know I could be standing right behind you reading over your shoulder. Mwahaha!

    :)

  9. I would say my chosen peculiarity would be vision so bad, being so nearsighted, that I could see microscopically when holding something up to my face. I know it sounds weird but that is close to what my eyesight is like right now. I never even noticed it until I was looking at my contact lens and realized I could seen the texture of it really clearly...totally odd. I would say this would be useful only if you were reading one of those "world's smallest bible" souvenirs. Or trying to tie the shoelaces of an elf...which would be odd to say the least.

    Thanks Misty and keep up the awesome Youtube Reviews!

    At first, I thought I would choose invisibility as my peculiarity. But teleportation would be the most useful, so that's what I pick.

    ReplyDelete

  37. Can my peculiarity be apparating? That's totally stealing canon from Harry Potter... so it should really be teleportation. I am feeling in a much lazy mood today and I don't feel like walking anywhere! Hah!

    Also, I'd just like to add that my brother has been begging me to get this book. Him and reading? Not exactly a match but I'm really happy to hear that he's excited about a book for once.

    ReplyDelete
  47. It's hard to choose just one. I would like to have compulsion. I think it would come in handy. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. While having telekinesis would be awesome, I think I'd prefer to be able to go invisible. It would make scaring people so much more fun...for Halloween that is. =)

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Awesome giveaway. I literally gasped. I want this book so bad. I would love the peculiarity of persuasion...sneaky, yet can be used for good.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would want the power of invisibility, that way you can hear what others are saying about you. If you could read minds that would be horrible because then you just get way too much info.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think 'hyperkinesis' would be great to have, who wouldn't love to have flawless aim, perfect balance, and greatly enhanced motor skills.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Mine would definitely be invisibility so that I could sneak into the library/bookstore after hours to read the books :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think I'd like to become invisible! This book looks SOOOO cool!

    I filled out the form for Helluva Halloween.

  56. LOVE the book trailer!

    And the book looks incredible:)

    Hope I win:)

    My peculiarity would be enthrallment/persuasion - where I get people to do whatever I want.

    Or ESP.

    Both come in handy:)

    ReplyDelete
  57. The ability to see every stinkin' insect, no matter how obscure they may be. Oh wait! I already have that peculiarity! How about an unnatural sense of smell? Wait! Already got that, too! Forget it. I'm already peculiar enough!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I would love to be able to read minds. :) I hate not knowing what people truly think (or maybe I'm just paranoid).

    ReplyDelete
  63. oh gosh, I don't know what my peculiarity would be! I think it would probably be telekinesis, only because I am so lazy that I would love to move things without getting up! Or teleportation because that way, I can go wherever I want. It's like being your own personal plane!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hmmm... if I were a child at Miss Peregrine's home, my peculiarity would puking free books and then reading them... okay... I'm a book lover, but this would still be too weird! xD

    ReplyDelete
  65. My peculiarity would be one of two things: 1)The power to go invisible at will. I like to be alone at times. 2) Control time with my mind. Although this power is very dangerous, I am responsible and know when it's wrong to use it. ^^
