Did the trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children movie have you waiting on the edge of your seat for September 30, 2016? These nine peculiar, eerie, wacky reads will help to tide you over until you can see Miss Peregrine’s world come to life on the big screen.

1. The Charmed Children of Rookskill Castle by Janet Fox 

Did someone say eerie setting with a creepy history? When Katherine and her siblings move into Scotland’s ancient Rookskill Castle, they’re met with strange noises and bumps in the night.

2. Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

This is a story about a hero, a villain, and a liar–but who is who? Not knowing what these three teenagers are up to would set anyone on edge.

3. Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

When Austin and Robbie accidentally unleash an unstoppable army of giant praying mantises, they accidentally bring about the end of the world. Talk about a weird day.

4. The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen by Katherine B. Howe

When Wes encounters the mysterious Annie at a seance, he’s drawn into a romance that definitely transcends the ordinary.

5. Half Bad by Sally Green 

In a world where witches live among humans, Nathan is wanted by no one, and hunted by everyone.

6. Control by Lydia Kang

 In a future world where those with special powers are cast aside as mistakes, one group of extraordinary outcasts will prove that they can be heroes.

7. Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff 

Clementine Devore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, kept alive by magic. Now she’s out and determined to figure out who put her in that cellar–and why.

8. Blythewood by Carol Goodman 

When Ava gets accepted to Blythewood, she prepared herself for many things–for instance, class differences and family secrets. But she wasn’t quite as prepared for the magic she finds and sinister forces she’ll have to confront.

9. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson 

Starting at a new school? Tough. Trying to solve a series of strange murders that may have been carried out by a man that only you can see? Tougher.
