Written by Ransom Riggs, Tales of the Peculiar is a series of stories of fairytales and myths and fables that have been adapted to a darker, might I say, more peculiar form.
I truly fell in love with this book, from the first tale where I saw the downfall of the farmers to the cannibals, to the bird who makes time loops and turns into a woman. This book will keep you fascinated, and despite it’s darkness, somehow there’s a beauty in each ending.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy read and who enjoys mythology or fairytales. I truly would give this book a 5/5 stars as I loved each and every story and can see myself reading it to my children one day.
