Book Girl Talks the Movie – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

In March of last year, I read the first book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. And I really liked it, awarding it a 5/5-star rating, it’s pretty obvious that I was going to watch the movie as soon as it came out.
So, this is my discussion, thoughts and feelings on the movie compared to the book.
