Book Review: A Map of Days – Ransom Riggs

Another excellent read!

The blurb from the back of the book:

Things have started to get quite . . . peculiar . . .

Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back in Florida, where his story began.

Joined by Miss Peregrine, Emma and their peculiar friends, life has become carefree. They spend days at the beach, and take part in ‘normalling’ lessons.

But it’s not meant to last.

The discovery of Jacob’s grandfather’s subterranean bunker leads to clues about his double-life as a peculiar operative.

Jacob begins to learn more about the dangerous legacy he’s inherited, and the truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.

Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom – a world that none of them understand.


It was so great to delve back into this extraordinary world.

I love the fact that you get photos alongside the story which are just as peculiar.

I loved Jacob and Emma, Millard and Bronwyn; the characters seem so real and it is like you are right there experiencing the whole thing with them.

It was nice to leave the UK behind and follow Miss Peregrine’s wards on their adventure in America. It had opened up a whole new world of peculiars.

If you loved the first three books then you’ll love this one…and I’m sure the next (which I have just ordered!🙈).

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My name is Lisa and the pooch in my profile picture is my baby, Skye. I love everything bookish! I also find things like tarot and angel cards, along with runes and gemstones really interesting and I like to incorporate these into my photos.
