Book Review: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs


Book Title: Library of Souls
Author: Ransom Riggs
Book Series: Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #3
Reading Format: Hardcover
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The adventure that began with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and continued in Hollow City comes to a thrilling conclusion with Library of Souls. As the story opens, sixteen-year-old Jacob discovers a powerful new ability, and soon he’s diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Accompanying Jacob on his journey are Emma Bloom, a girl with fire at her fingertips, and Addison MacHenry, a dog with a nose for sniffing out lost children.

They’ll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthine alleys of Devil’s Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It’s a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all. Like its predecessors, Library of Souls blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.


After setting this book to the side multiple times because of boredom and other books I wanted to read, I finally finished this book and trilogy. This might sound bizarre to say, but I can finally breathe now, and it a great feeling. This last installment in this trilogy was pretty good, in my opinion. Since I set it aside multiple times, I can barely remember what even happened within the pages, but it is all good, because the ending definitely made up for it because, in my opinion, it was better than the beginning of the book. I’m just relieved with how this one ended, and I couldn’t stop saying, ‘Aw’ when a cute scene between Jacob and Emma appeared.

    1. I felt the same way, to be honest. I think part of the reason I had to set this one aside for awhile was how long the chapters were, and I just wanted to start the other books that were on my TBR at the time.
