Rating: ★★★★☆

Imagine a worldwide mystery involving shady secret agents, a formerly united and now dangerously divided organization, multiple crimes of arson, and your family in the middle of it all. Imagine your parents are dead and it’s just you and your two siblings fighting to survive against unknown enemies. That’s the story behind this series of 13 books by Lemony Snicket, who is also wrapped up in the mystery. How? I won’t tell you and neither does he. You’ll just have to read A Series of Unfortunate Events to see how the adventure unfolds.

        I am eleven, too, and I read at a college level, isn’t that amazing? I have all of the books, except for The Beatrice Letters, The Unauthorized Autobiography, Puzzling Puzzles, and Notorious Notations, but I hope to get them soon. I’ve literally read all thirteen of those miserably unfortunate books thirteen times….this month!!!!!!!

    I can’t believe you have The Beatrice Letters! You are so lucky! I’ve wanted that book forever, but this morning, my mother said NO to getting a book. *Sigh* And is that copy of Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography hardcover? How much did it cost???? Where did you get it???? Please give me a straight answer. I need to get The Beatrice Letters, The Unauthorized Autobiography, and Norious Notations to complete my Unfortunate collection. Plus, I am thinking about making Violet and Sunny’s dresses from the movie….
