Book To Movie | Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
As you all probably know, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is turned into a movie directed by the one and only Tim Burton! The movie will be released in March 2016, in most countries I think (more release dates/countries here). The film is in the making and Ransom announced the other day that he and Tahereh are going to visit the movie set in a few days. Very exciting! :)

Movie Cast (click for more actors)
Some of the characters have been casted and I'm very pleased with the choices so far. Asa Butterfield is perfect as Jacob (by his look at least, I haven't seen him act) in my opinion, same with Eva Green as Miss Peregrine. Samuel L. Jackson is a very good actor and I can't wait to see him in the movie. I will write more about this in the future when there is more information about everything. Sounds good? This is what IMDb says about the movie:
16-year-old Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.

One week of reading

Hello lovelies! I hope you're feeling well :)
I'm in Spain right now which means vacation, and of course, a lot of reading!! School's back in one week so I'll have plenty of time to read. I have really missed it :) I have no idea which book to start with though but I'll most definitely find one. Thinking about What I Thought was True, The Summer I Turned Pretty or Wait for You. Any ideas? 

I'll blog more soon!
