literatureloveaffair:


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. 
Who? One and all are welcome to join in the readalong, whether this will be your first or millionth time reading the series. 
How?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. 
When? The readalong begins on Sunday the 28th of September, with one book assigned to each week beginning on Sundays and ending on Saturdays. 
28/09/14 - 04/10/14: The Bad Beginning
05/10/14 - 11/10/14: The Reptile Room
12/10/14 - 18/10/14: The Wide Window
19/10/14 - 25/10/14: The Miserable Mill
26/10/14 - 01/11/14: The Austere Academy
02/11/14 - 08/11/14: The Ersatz Elevator 
09/11/14 - 15/11/14: The Vile Village 
16/11/14 - 22/11/14: The Hostile Hospital

21/12/14 - 27/12/14: The End 
It would be very foolish decision not to get involved! Feel free to contact the hosts literatureloveaffair or thebooker for any questions!

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.

#originally i was going to try to be more formal and ~proper~ on this blog #clearly that's not going according to plan #thoughts~ #about me

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…

#if it was a story i really enjoyed the first time around i would have reread it #and while i love the author's style #i didn't care much for that particular story or the characters it was about #so i'm not going to spend time going back over it

short stories should not have chapters

#smh these stories are cringeworthy anyway #but the structure and formatting are making things so much worse
