Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children By Ransom Riggs

Hey Guys! It’s Jordan from ReadGeekx3 with a new book review! This review is for the first book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, written by Ransom Riggs. This will be the first review in our Miss Peregrine’s Review Series, in which we will review both of the books in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series leading up to the release of the third and final book, Library of Souls.

Miss Peregrines Cover

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children follows a 16 year old boy, Jacob Portman, who ventures with his father to a isolated island off the coast of Wales in search of answers after a haunting family tragedy. Once at the island, he discovers the remnants of an abandoned orphanage, said to have once be home to peculiar children, all thought to be now dead. But as Jacob explores, it becomes clearer that he may not have just stumbled upon a new world he once never thought possible, but that he might just be part of it.

This novel tells it’s story both through text and vernacular photography, a choice that enhances the the story and help to maintain the stories sense of gloom and somberness. It is also a choice that I applaud author Ransom Riggs for, as I do imagine that building a story around photographs to create a new experience for the reader would be a particularly hard task. All of the characters are given depth, the narrative is well paced, and the book is just well written all together. The only issue I have with this book is that some of the photos seem out of place, especially at the beginning, but this is still a wonderful, well written YA novel.

This book is really great! It’s mix of photography and text make it a wonderful experience, unlike any book I have read. I give this book 5/5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially to people who love series such as The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

Our review of the second book, Hollow City, is coming next Monday!

Library of Souls, the third and final book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, goes on sale on September 22 and is available for preorder now!

My Top 5 Favorite Moments From The Mockingjay Part 2 Trailer!

Hi Guys! It’s Jordan from ReadGeekx3. As you probably know, the full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 was released on Thursday. Many new and exciting scenes and clips were shown throughout the trailer, only increasing my eagerness to see this movie. And I have gathered my 5 favorite moments from this new trailer to present to you guys. 

1. The Destroyed Capital

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.28.29 PM

This clip puts an emphasis on the destruction that occurs during this revolution. This has to be my favorite shots in the trailer, stressing the destroyed state of the Capital.

2. President Coin

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.25.51 PM

This shot shows President Coin in a new position of power with a new haircut to match. This clip gets me excited to see what role she will play in the film and also foreshadows the conclusion of the film (Those in the know will get it).

3. The Map of Pods

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.34.13 PM

The refusal of the Capital to simply surrender is on full display in this clip. They’ve stocked up on deadly traps, such as the ones used in the Hunger Games, to hinder the advance of the rebel forces. A move very questionable as it seems as if it would be less effective than simply sending in Peacekeepers.

4. The Falling Parachutes

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 9.01.45 PM

This clip is very much a clip for those who have read the books, as not everything in this shot is as it seems. I won’t spoil it, but do know that this is a very important part in the story and will leave a lasting effect.

5. Squad 451 In The Transfer

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.12.48 PM

This shot shows Katniss in the Transfer, shooting into what seems to be an explosion. This should be one of the most action packed parts of the movie, so I am super excited to see it on the big screen!

I am very excited to see this movie this fall and I know I’m not alone. Tell us about your favorite moments from this trailer in the comments! The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 comes out November 20! If you liked this, please follow and check out some more of our post! 

Book Review: Disney Descendants: The Junior Novel

  Hey guys it’s Jamari here from ReadGeekx3 with another Book review! This is review is for the Junior Novelization of Disney’s Descendants based on the script written by  Josann McGibbon and Sara Parroitt. 

This review is going to be more straight to the point so I don’t spoil anything for the upcoming movie since everything that happens in the book happens in the movie (since it’s literally a direct transfer from the movie script)

It picks ups right where the Prequel The Isle Of The Lost left off, Prince Ben, son of Beast and Belle is about to become king and he is first proclamation is to have four children from the Isle of the Lost brought to the kingdom of Auradon to live a normal life. And the four children chosen are Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos (Maleficent, Evil Queen, Jafar, Cruella). And they are set to attend the boarding school, Auradon Prep and learn how to be good. 

The junior novel was very interesting and I can already tell that this is going to be my favorite DCOM of all time! I give the junior novel 10/10 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and I highly reccomand this book to those who are really excited for Descendants and who can’t wait to know what happens! 


Descendants premieres on the Disney Channel on July 31 and you could see it early on Watch Disney and Disney on Demand on July 24!

Book Review: The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz

Hey guys it’s Jamari here from ReadGeekx3 here with a review of The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz, which is a prequel novel to the upcoming Disney Channel Movie Descendants. 

So this book focuses on the descendants of the evil Disney villains and their life on the Isle of the Lost before the events of the movie. Mal, the daughter of Maleficent, Jay, son of Jafar, Carlos, son of Cruella De Vill, & Evie, daughter of The Evil Queen.


Soon there is an indication of magic found on the island after Maleficent’s bird Diablo is free from his statue prison. Diablo claims to have seen Maleficent’s scepter, The Dragon’s Eye, and Maleficent sends her daughter Mal to go set out for it, and she is later tagged along by Jay, Carlos and Evive. But the catch is, since the Dragon’s Eye is cursed, whoever touches it will be cursed to a slumber of a thousand years.

I really enjoyed this book and had a great time reading it! It’s a really fun and easy read and I give this book a rating of 5/5 ⭐️stars in a normal 5 star rating and a 10/10 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ in our 10 star rating! I highly reccomend this book to everyone no matter what age you are, because anyone can have a great time reading this book.

The book see up perfectly for the upcoming Disney Channel movie Descendants, which comes out this summer! 

Descendants premieres on July 31st at 8pm on Disney Channel! Check for more posts coming very soon!
