I originally started this on 31st December 2015 and intended to read all thirteen books over the course of 2016. But after a horrendous start to the year, losing my mum very suddenly, I had little to no interest in reading all of 2016 and sadly this bled over into 2017 which left the blog completely and utterly out of my thoughts and so I never got back into it. This year however it's all change. I feel like I have my reading mojo back and with some amazing titles coming top in 2018 now is the perfect time to get back into the swing of things and to finally do all the things I have been planning to do. So in 2018, I am going to read all thirteen instalments of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Or at least I am planning to. I will update this page every time I finish one of the books and will include brief thoughts on each book as I go. I am very excited to get back into this world and see how the books fare a decade on from my original reading as a fourteen year old.
Book the First: The Bad Beginning.
I had forgotten just how funny and how dark these books were, and so clever. I had also forgotten just how much I hated Count Olaf but was also entranced by him in equal measure.
Book the Second: The Reptile Room.
I always saw this book as the real beginning of the series. Introductions were done, we knew that Olaf was on the run and would inevitably turn up again at some point but hoped that the Baudelaire children would actually find some kind of peace, and with the arrival of Uncle Montgomery Montgomery you would hope that they would of found just that. One other thing I loved about this one. The Incredible Deadly Viper.
Book the Third: The Wide Window.
Book the Fourth: The Miserable Mill.
Book the Fifth: The Austere Academy.
Book the Sixth: The Ersatz Elevator.
Book the Seventh: The Vile Village.
Book the Eighth: The Hostile Hospital.
Book the Ninth: The Carnivorous Carnival.
Book the Tenth: The Slippery Slope.
Book the Eleventh: The Grim Grotto.
Book the Twelfth: The Penultimate Peril.
Book the Thirteenth: The End.
