BB Book Club | January's Book Is...

As we mentioned in our big book club announcement post (catch up here if you missed it!) our theme for the year is Short Stories which can include anything from novellas to poetry collections, flash fiction, novels under 200 pages, graphic novels and short story collections like our first pick; Tales Of The Peculiar by Ransom Riggs.


Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.

Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. The origins of the first ymbryne. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar—known to hide information about the peculiar world—first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. - Goodreads

Suggested by Ria, this beautifully illustrated short story collection is a spin-off from the popular Miss Peregrine's series. With an intriguing premise that promises unique stories set in a wonderfully mystical world we think this is the perfect title to launch our book club and can't wait to dive in!

Don't worry if you haven't caught up on the rest of the series yet, not all of us have either and this is one of the reasons we think it's a great choice for our first BB Book Club pick! It isn't essential to have read the Miss Peregrine's series in order to enjoy these short stories and we think it's going to be interesting to hear from both those who are familiar with this world and those who aren't.

We would love it if you'd like to join in and read along any time over the next month, then complete this Google form by 19th January to share your opinions with us. You can also use the hashtag #bookshelfbookclub to share your book photos and thoughts with us!

You can pick up a copy of Tales Of The Peculiar over on The Book Depository who ship worldwide.



We'll be introducing February's book selection, chosen by Anjali, at the end of January - so don't worry if our first pick doesn't sound like your thing!
