Reading Hollow City

... The second book in the series Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children.

Oh, you guys. I cannot believe that I have to wait at least a year before the third book comes out. (This is like reading Harry Potter all over again but not really because nothing compares to Harry Potter.) In the second novel Jacob's adventures continue. I'm going to try to do this without spoilers, so I hope anyone reading this understands that the main character is going to survive for a while. This time the issues with hollows and wights have sort of reached a completely new level not to mention the fact that Jacob is wrestling with the things he discovered in the first book, making some very difficult decisions and also obviously love. Because there cannot be books about teenagers without romance getting involved.

Oh it was a good book. There must be a curse on second books in trilogies since they so often become bridges between two more interesting stories but this book fared pretty well. Things have gotten more serious as the situation is a lot less optimistic but it's still funny. I quite like getting to know the characters and previously the "children" were just a bunch of weirdos but their individual personalities are becoming more and more obvious. (It might've been obvious the whole time but I'm a bit slow.) I'd recommend this book if you enjoy fantasy and young adult fiction, which clearly is the best combination.
