Hello my lovely readers!
I’ve already written quite a few posts on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. About the books, the movie, etc.

There are 13 books in total, and Netflix dedicated 2 episodes to each book. So the first season consists of 8 episodes and deals with the first four books. Continue reading
