A Series of Unfortunate Book Reviews

If you like Lemony Snicket, go over to Hick Chic Reviews and read all about how great I think his books are. If you don't like Lemony read it anyways; it's really awful stuff. If you've never heard of Lemony, well, gosh, what are ya waiting for? Get over there!

And I still haven't solved the mystery of that garbage can...

I love Lemony Snicket! My husband bought the first few for our daughter awhile ago ago but she said she didn't like the first book. She said it was too depressing. So I took it with my on a trip and read it. She was right, the first book was a bit of a downer until I started picking up on the silliness and funny jokes. After I read the first two, she gave them another chance and we've both read them all. It was more fun to read and discuss them with each other.

Do you know when the final book will be out?

I thought they did a good job on the movie too, BTW.

Okay, now I can go read your review...

I like Lemony Snicket. What I REALLY like about the books is that they keep the youngsters entertained!

(Howdy, I am new! Found ya through redneck nerdboy, through edieraye...I think. I am a horse girl myself)

Heidi the Hick said...

Yankee- Exactly! I was afraid reading this would damage my daughter but she devoured them last summer. Apparently she too has a dark side. Now we have all these little in jokes. Like, Very Fussy Daughter.

I was so uneasy about the movie, but the atmosphere was perfect. "Olaf's" look was perfect. My only complaints are that Klaus didn't wear his glasses the whole time and that Olaf got a little too Jim Carrey once or twice. Otherwise well done. I'm glad the ended it there though. I couldn't deal with having to go see thirteen movies. Or nine. I think the last book comes out next winter.

Georgie- UNLETTERED? wha? Huh? Dang, you hafta go and use all them big words!

Smartypants- A hot garbage man is a rare and precious thing...I really do have to take a photo next week. I owe it to you and Tim. haha!

Cindydianne- hi fellow horse girl! You should come back again, because not only do I have Lemony and Hot Garbage Man, I also have Stud of the Month! Oh and I hope you like Johnny Depp...

CindyDianne said...

I like Johnny Depp but I LOVE Matthew McConaughey. I mean just look and listen to the man! AND he's a fellow Texan.

Can I have a letter?

Heidi the Hick said...

cindydianne- How about M for Matthew!!!!
