Audiobook Review: The Conference of the Birds by Ransom Riggs
I’ve read Miss Peregrine’s since the beginning. It was one of the first books I bought on my kindle back in 2011 – and I’ve been hooked ever since. I sobbed through the back half of Library of Souls. I saw the movie opening weekend. I own the graphic novels! So, yes, I love this series and The Conference of the Birds is no different. I don’t want to spoil the book so I’m giving you 5 reasons why you need to catch up and read book 5 of the series!

“Do you trust me?”
An instant bestseller, A Map of Days launched readers into the previously unexplored world of American peculiars, one bursting with new questions, new allies, and new adversaries.
Now, with enemies behind him and the unknown ahead, Jacob Portman’s story continues as he takes a brave leap forward into The Conference of the Birds, the next installment of the beloved, bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.
Without being too spoilery, here’s why you need to pick up or catch up on the series. I love these books SO MUCH and I gift them as much as I can!
- The Peculiars are in AMERICA. The sequel trilogy (heh) is set in America, which brings an interesting lens to characters raised across the pond. The tone is different, which is masterful. Ransom does an amazing job of contrasting the tone and setting between the two trilogies.
- Ransom has done an amazing job aging Jacob through the years. His journey currently matches the natural separation between teens and their parents…With an added twist due to the circumstances.
- Speaking of Jacob, he’s taking over for his grandpa and seeing himself as a leader. Seeing this process play out is endearing and tough, as he struggles while also succeeding.
- The photos are fun. as always. You saw that you can get one if you preorder, right?
- As always Kirby Heyborne does an amazing job with the narration. He’s one of my favorite narrators so to have his voice on this series is perfect for me!
