“A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Wide Window” by Lemony Snicket

The_Wide_WindowI’ve finished another. Progress.

This is the third installment of “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” which detail the lives of poor Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, who lost their parents and their massive house and all their belongings in a fire.

At this point, they’ve already been forced into Count Olaf’s house, then Uncle Monty, and now Aunt Josephine. Funny thing about Aunt Josephine: She lives in a house that is basically hanging out from a cliff over the top of a lake, but she’s terrified of everything, included, but not limited to, stoves, telephones, doorknobs, and welcome mats. Aunt Josephine means well but she is really not a very good guardian for the three orphans. And she is super annoyingly into grammar. I mean, I appreciate the nuances of the English language, but she corrects every grammar mistake made in her presence, to an unreasonable degree.

Of course, Count Olaf shows up, no one believes the orphans, Count Olaf is evil, and the Baudelaires are still miserable. At this point, they don’t have any more relatives to go to, so who knows what will happen to them next. Well I know because I’ve read the series before and watched the first season of the Netflix series. Nevertheless, more despair to come.

I’ll probably wait to start the fourth book, “The Miserable Mill,” until I’ve finished a book or two because I’m literally reading three other books right now too, which is pretty bad of me. But there’s just so much I want to experience that I can’t help myself. Fingers crossed that I can wrap up “I’ll Give You the Sun” by Jandy Nelson before it’s due back at the library.

I love libraries,
Maegan
