Title: A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Miserable Mill
Author: Lemony Snicket
Length: 194 pages
What it’s about: The Miserable Mill is the fourth novel of the children’s series A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. The series is about the Baudelaire orphans who find themselves in a series of unfortunate events – most of which include the evil Count Olaf who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the Baudelaire fortune. In this novel, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumber mill.
How I got it: Will’s family had the first 6 novels in the series in hardback and great condition so he put them aside for me when his family were having a clear out!
When I got it: Possibly around June 2015 but it could have been much earlier than that…
Why I want to read it: Until this year, I had never read the series before but since watching the film adaption in 2004 (just had to look up the films release date and now I am in shock over how long it has taken me to read the books) these books have always been on my ‘To Read’ list! So far this year I have read the first three novels in the series and I love them so much. They are short, easy reads but they are also dark, funny and really entertaining. They’re great little books to read when you don’t have time to read a long book!
