Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Children by Ransom Riggs
Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Children

Laurel R Jones, January 17, 2014

Hollow City is even more exciting than its prequel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I gave the first book 5 stars! More adventure, more in-depth information about the world of the Peculiars, and some new, equally lovable characters. Best of all, it promises that there will be a third book coming soon! Keep up the great work, Ransom Riggs!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Laurel R Jones, January 2, 2012

This is definitely my best read for 2011. Simultaneously charming and thrilling, it is suitable for older children and adults alike. The characters are made all the more vivid by the vintage photos with a twist that are generously sprinkled throughout the book and they sync up perfectly with the story. There is never any doubt which photo goes with which passage in the book. I eagerly await the sequel.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Laurel R Jones, July 21, 2011

This is the most delightful, enchanting, and hard to put down book I have come across since I finished the Harry Potter series! One of those books I read on the bus, and even while walking up quiet residential streets. I could not put it down while walking from point A to point B (except to check traffic when crossing streets of course). The photographs mesh perfectly with the story line. The pictures themselves are great examples of trick photography used before the digital age (or is that girl on the cover REALLY hovering a few inches off the ground?)

Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth by Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos Papadimitriou
Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth

Laurel R Jones, January 22, 2011

The life of a great mathematician/philosopher in graphic novel format. Amazing! Since I love math, philosophy, and logic, I was delighted with the concept that a mathematician/philosopher is a logician!
