Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery—a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.
Recently, I read the fourth volume of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children in English because I wanted to (re)discover Ransom Riggs’ writing and to improve my English comprehension. But firstly, it was because of the beautiful English hardback edition.

Aujourd’hui c’est lundi, qu’avez-vous sur votre table de nuit ?
Le blog a été mis en pause le mois dernier mais de nouveaux articles ne devraient pas tarder ! 😉 Ces dernières semaines, j’ai donc lu le quatrième tome de Miss Peregrine et les enfants particuliers : A map of days, de Ransom Riggs (en VO !) et les Nouvelles orientales de Marguerite Yourcenar. Par ailleurs, j’ai découvert les audiobooks : j’écoute quotidiennement Harry Potter en anglais, lu par Stephen Fry !
En ce moment je lis Shutter Island de Dennis Lehane et j’écoute Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets 😉
Et ensuite je pense lire Nous rêvions juste de liberté d’Henri Loevenbruck.
Et vous alors, qu’avez-vous sur votre table de nuit ?
