Life of a Book Hoarder

Five Peculiar Years

“A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.”

Five years ago, the fascinating and strange Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was released into the world by author Ransom Riggs. I was immediately intrigued by the idea of the book and excited by the “found photography” aspect. Today, love for the series is still going strong and there’s even an upcoming movie.

To celebrate the series anniversary, the kind folks over at Quirk Books sent me a peculiar tote, along with an extra to give away!

To enter, please head over to my Instagram (@milliebot_reads) – follow me there, like the post and tag a friend! My giveaway will run from today (6/20) to Friday (6/24) and I’ll announce a winner on IG on Saturday (6/24). (Rules and such: Must enter on IG in order for your blog entry to be valid. No giveaway accounts.)

For an extra entry, comment here with what peculiar power you’d like to have. And I don’t mean the run-of-the-mill powers that we all wish for like flight and teleportation or telekinesis. Something odd!

Personally, I’ve always had the strange desire for what I call “past vision.” It would probably be a mostly useless power, but I wish I could see what the land wherever I was standing looked like 50, 100, 300 years ago. Since I was fairly young, I would be somewhere, like a city or at a theme park and I would wonder what that place looked like before things were built or developed the way they are today. Is that weird? (probably.)

At any rate, this tote is pretty neat. You can even write (well…paint probably) on the back to show off your peculiarity!

If you’re interested, Quirk is also hosting a fanart based giveaway on their site and for more information, you can click here. Stay peculiar bibliofriends!

  1. I couldn’t find the giveaway post on your IG page 😦

    Well, this is my entry. And the peculiarity i’d want is to be able to stand in someone else shoes and feel exactly what they feel. 🙂

  2. “Past vision” would be an awesome power!

    I would love to be able to know ALL languages and thus be able to seamlessly travel from country to country..


  3. The peculiarity I’d want is to be able to time travel.⏱ I think it would be so cool to go back in time and see all the old times, people and clothes😊
