A Series of Unfortunate Events

I have a bit of a special relationship with this series. In elementary school my art teacher would play the audiobooks while we worked. I believe it’s also how I was first introduced to Harry Potter.

I’ve never read the books. I definitely don’t remember any of the stories from 13-15 years ago. The one thing that has stuck with me is that I know I enjoyed listening to the stories.

Now Netflix has adapted the first couple of books in season 1 of its new series. It may be time to read the first few books and watch the series. I mean, a trip down memory lane never hurt anyone.

What’s your experience with this series?

  1. It’s on my list of Netflix shows to watch. My reading list is a mile long so I’ll probably watch the series first.


  2. I admittedly only just read the first title and am looking to find the rest of the series. I have a soft spot for grim and less pleasant tales. I found Bad Beginning to be oddly endearing in a sad sort of way 🙂


  3. I read the first book when I was a pre-teen. I distinctly remember enjoying it and wanting to read more but never did. I wish I had though and part of me is always drawn to the series.


  4. These books came out when I was in elementary school as well! I’ve always loved them ever since and am so happy they are finally making a good TV adaptation of the amazing series.
