I believe in the magic of books. I believe that during certain periods in our lives we are drawn to particular books—whether it’s strolling down the aisles of a bookshop with no idea whatsoever of what it is that we want to read and suddenly finding the most perfect, most wonderfully suitable book staring us right in the face. Unblinking. Or a chance meeting with a stranger or friend who recommends a book we would never ordinarily reach for. Books have the ability to find their own way into our lives.

A few days ago I finished reading Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. 

It was a bittersweet moment. 

I started reading it when mom was admitted to hospital, I even showed her the photographs and told her she was going to love the story, that I was going to read it to her when she got out.

After mom died, I just couldn’t keep reading it, I couldn’t read anything. The pain was too deep.

But now I finished it. Such a lovely book, such a peculiar lovely book. I already miss the peculiar children so I need to read Hollow City soon.

Thank you, ransomriggs for this amazing journey that started with the last days of my mom on this earth and ended with me learning to live without her <3
