I read The whole series in a week!!! I love this series soooo much but truthfully it was a bit confusing at times, if the author just explained loops and stuff a bit more in the beginning it would have been easier. But nonetheless I love the plot and everything. The book ends on a big cliffhanger which I am not at all fond of, I need a sixth book!!

I would definitely recommend rereading the book series if you take even a week off because of how many important details there are, and just to get a better overall understanding for the book.

I am honestly sad I finished the series so quick, I want to skim through the pages and the series again but I can’t really do that because of the detail dense books. So I guess I will wait for the sixth book and then reread the whole series.

Definitely recommend for all mysterious and horror lovers. But if you are not good at keeping things in your head between chapters and books, I don’t recommend as it would be a bit too confusing.

FINALLY got to read this book! I read A Map of Days about a year ago so I was a little confused at first. It was not the best book in the series but did keep me interested all the way through. It also moved very fast, so I ended up wondering what just happened several times throughout the book, although this could be chalked up to me reading too fast.
Sadly this one also ends on a slightly confusing cliffhanger, and I feel like the author should have elaborated on the ending more. Still a good read but not one I would reread since much of the interest comes from not knowing what will happen.

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but Miss Peregrine has officially jumped the shark. In the previous installment A Map of Days, I wasn't overly impressed but I felt that the book left us with plenty of information on the US Peculiars and ready for a new adventure. What Riggs delivered, however, was a pointless mess. I only gave the book two stars because of my fond feelings for the original series, but looking back on The Conference of the Birds, I feel less and less inclined to even continue with the series. Possibly the only saving grace was the slowly building relationship between Noor and Jacob along with some character development for some of our long-time Peculiar friends.

The plot however was so thin as to be nonexistent. Jacob would be off on some quest and I would forget again why he was doing it. So not only was it a random assortment of "quests," but they didn't feel important. And the same went for the photographs for this installment. In the original three, the photographs were integral to the story. They were visual representations of our main characters, but here, he has taken some interesting photos and forced them into the story with the description of characters here and there that have absolutely nothing to do with the primary story line. Riggs also engaged in the unforgivable plot device of changing information at the last moment. Even the suitably creepy ending couldn't save this book. It really was for the birds.
