I was starting to get tired a couple of hours ago (1 to 2 am) but a strong tea and some moving books here and there for the mini-challenges did wonders. I think I might be able to finally read for the 24 hours!

  1. How did you like Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? I've started more than once and I don't know what had kept me from making it past page 50... Should I try again?

    1. It's hard to say without knowing your literary tastes, but I can say it has worked for me. The story wasn't what I was expecting at all - it really does change from what we are told at the start. It's a very original and imaginative book, but at the same time it has a couple of weak points here and there that I hope get strengthened in the sequel. The inclusion of pictures can be weird, but I think that they worked well in most cases, and only felt like a gimmick a couple of times.

      TL;DR: I liked it. I would give it another opportunity :)

    1. Thanks for the encouragement! I just had breakfast (it's 8 am here), which included another strong tea, and went back to reading. I might really stay awake for the 24 hours, thanks to all of your kind comments! :)
