So now that I actually have spare time, I've started reading again. I just finished Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
First off let me say that I really enjoyed it. It was odd enough that couldn't put it down because I just wanted to know what was going on (!) but not so weird that I couldn't enjoy it. However, it is the beginning of a series!! I can't tell you how much that annoys me. I swear there was one summer when every, and I do mean every, book I read was the start to a series. I like series, I do. But I like to read them all at once. I hate having to wait for a book to come out. I'm just not that invested in the story line or characters yet. I didn't even get into Harry Potter until the 4th one was already out. Then, I was four books in and was super invested.
Whatever happened to writing just one book??!!
