I won a free copy of The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart By: Lauren DeStefano in a Twitter giveaway!
Short Review Summary:
I loved it and so did both of my 9 year old sons!
I really enjoyed The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart. The writing is really lovely and the story is perfect for a child who is on a middle grade reading level, but enjoyable for adults too. The plot was of course a bit obvious for me, but that's to be expected since I'm an adult. My favorite thing about the book though is the relationship between Lionel and Marybeth. It's really sweet and I like how they helped each other.
Overall The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart is an enjoyable read. I would love to read more by this author since this is my first by her. Also, it's a fantasy/paranormal book, but it's not scary at all. I could see this as a movie too.
I recommend The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart to middle grade readers for the upcoming cold months! It's coming upon the perfect season for these kind of reads.
My son Justin rated this 5.9 out of 5 stars.
My son Jordan rated this out 4 of 5 stars.
