So here is my book for this weeks Wishlist Wednesday:



Goodreads Synopsis:
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 added this to my wishlist last week, I've seen a couple of reviews of this book and they sounded good.  I think this would be a bit of spooky and haunting read.  The cover and name of the book really intruige me.  It looks like the little girl is hovering above the ground!!  Ooooooh how creepy!

What books do you have on your wishlist??

This is on my TBR list too, hoping the bookstore puts it on sale, or I can get a copy at my library!
