I love all of the books! Unlike some of the other books I've read, A Series of Unfortunate Events is more 'depressing'. It's about the Baudelaire siblings; violet, Klaus, and Sunny, who after their parents perished in a terrible fire ( if you've read the first book you know why I used that word) and fall into the wrong hands. I love the film series too and I'm currently on the 12th! I totally recommend it!
