BB Book Club | January 2018 Roundup | Tales Of The Peculiar

This year we decided to launch our very own online book club, with a new book for you to join us in reading every month. We were so pleased to receive such a positive response to our new venture and would like to thank everyone who picked up a copy of January's selection Tales Of The Peculiar by Ransom Riggs. The short story collection proved very popular with you guys and we've put together an infographic to share a little bit more about your thoughts on the book!

 Reader's comments & favourite quotes:

"I really enjoyed this book. It was a great addition to Ransom Riggs' other stories, and a fun read even if you haven't read the series before. I love all the creative abilities and peculiar talents that Riggs comes up with for his stories. The illustrations in this book were definitely a beautiful addition." - Sophie @ Sofilly

She felt the lonely burden of strangeness from the time she was old enough to hold up her head.

"I really enjoyed this collection of short stories and felt it was a great first book club pick! I loved the unique settings and characters as well as the beautiful illustrations. Tales Of The Peculiar has encouraged me to read the original series/more of Ransom Riggs writing in future." - Erin @ A Natural Detour

"It is a fun and exciting read. It is perfect for dipping your toe into the Peculiar world or exploring it in more detail if you are already a fan." - Kelly @ This Northern Gal

"Once upon a peculiar time..."

"I would definitely recommend the book as a great quick read. It's great for both those who are familiar with the world of the Peculiars and those (like me) who may only know it through the movie or have never read any of Ransom Riggs' novels. I really loved how dark some of the stories went and the style reminded me so much of the original Brothers Grimm fairytales." - Ria @ Thoroughly Modern Millennial

"I would recommend this book. I enjoyed the short stories, the illustrations and also the occasional editors notes. Some of the stories were fascinating and took turns that you couldn’t predict." - Cat

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our first ever book club read!
