A more "artistic" post today.
An other week came to it's end (!) Slowly April
is leaving us and as always,
Well, to be honest, i was never more excited for May to come.
Finally i bought them.
The first one is the quite famous Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
and the second in line is the Hollow City
both by Ransom Riggs. Reading all the dithyrambic comments about the first book,
my persistence on buying it was growing bigger by the day.
But i waited...
And i did quite well since they published the second book
during the January sales, almost 4 years after the first.
In conclusion, i found both of them,
wrapped in hard cover for a quite minimal amount of silver coins.
That's my way on buying books. As much as i crave them,
i wait for the best opportunity to come!
About the books now.
I will not write any story spoilers or any other detailed review.
I believe reading and reviewing a book is very personal
and it differs from every individual bookworm out there.
In general, they are both gorgeous to look. It's catholic design most slender gives extra points
to the book series. Is not the usual book, it's an exhibition.
All the old pictures create the best horror atmosphere.
Quoting the writer "all the pictures are authentic, vintage, found photographs, and with the
exception of a handful that have undergone digital post processing, they are unaltered."
while there is a list at the end of each book with the collective sources of them.
Splendid work mister Ransom Riggs.
Tv series recommendation for this post is The Originals.
