Marry, Date or Dump: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children


Hi friends! I’ve missed Marry, Date or Dump so I thought I’d do a few in October. I’ve been wanting to reread Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children for awhile. I read it during a confusing/grumpy time, and I’m worried my feelings about life seeped into how I felt about the book. So many people I know love this one and now there is a movie! When faced with the characters from the series, who would you marry? Who would you date? And, finally, who would you dump? Let me know your answers in the comments.

Here are my thoughts (totally based on a long ago reading of the first book):

  • Marry: Grandpa Abe – by all accounts this guys is a hero. He leaves the safety of the orphanage to fight in the war and devoted his life to defeating hollowgasts. Plus, he seems like a pretty amazing grandpa.
  • Date: Jacob – I’m always a sucker for a protagonist, even though this one doesn’t want to grow up.
  • Dump: Enoch – this character definitely has some redeemable qualities, but he’s a little too dark and spooky for me.
