If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched and will most likely fill you with deep despair. (x)
It is the opinion of your hosts, literatureloveaffair and thebooker that Lemony Snicket’s chronicles of the Baudelaire children’s unhappy adventures is best experienced as a group, hence the birth of this rather unhappy readalong.
One and all are welcome to join in the readalong, whether this will be your first or millionth time reading the series.
Together we shall be reading one book of Snicket’s tridecalogy a week, posting updates as regularly as we’re able. Post quotes, thoughts, reviews, recommendations, whatever takes your fancy! Just make sure to tag it #asouereadalong so we can all enjoy it together on our various functioning devices.
During each week there will also be a challenge to complete. The specifics of each challenge shall be posted at the beginning of the week. Challenges will be tagged #asouereadalongchallenge, and we ask you tag your responses this also.
The readalong begins on Sunday the 28th of September, with one book assigned to each week beginning on Sundays and ending on Saturdays.

September Book Photo Challenge. Day 13. Can’t wait for this.
And buy this I mean my last three drop caps! U, V, and W arrived today and I have the last three already pre-ordered, but I want them now!
can’t wait to make gifs of these when I have the whole set.
people are always going on about how they love long books and i’m just sitting over here like… mmm yeah, nah. the shorter the better. i like my novels well below 1000 pages, chapters under 30 pages and series 5 books or less, thank you very much.
I really wanted to finish this anthology tonight and I was so worried I wasn’t going to get it done, but it turns out I’ve already read the final story in the collection (and that author is the reason I bought the damn book in the first place, only to find out that I already have that story in a collection of their short works) so technically I’ve finished the book…
short stories should not have chapters
Hardcovers for aesthetics.
Paperbacks to read.
Ebooks to travel.
The holy trinity of book lovers.
*looks at straight couple* so which one of you is the YA protagonist and which is the romantic subplot?
