1st quarter – 5 books
2nd quarter – 6 books
3rd quarter – 6 books

Here’s the books I’ve finished reading for the 3rd quarter of 2016.

1. Library of Souls – Ms. Peregrine House for Peculiar Children (Book 3)

After finding out that they were fooled by the bird they brought along their journey, Emma and Jacob were left on a train station because their peculiar friends were captured by the wights. Now, they need to find where Ms. Peregrine and the other ymbryne’s and their friends were brought.

Jacob also further developed his power in this part, turns out that he is one of the most powerful peculiar more than what other’s expected. He was able to control the hollows and talk to them; he can also see the jar of souls in the library of souls.

The whole book series will teach you how to be courageous even if the battle that you will face is bigger, greater and powerful than you. Just go, fight and never give up.
