A Bad Beginning

Just to let you know, I just finished the first book in the Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. It is called The Bad Beginning. The Bad Beginning is a great beginning! :) Cannot wait to read more. I love the movie with Jim Carey in it.

On to The Reptile Room!

I also started Bleak House! Yay! I love it already. This is actually my first Charles Dickens novel. I have read The Christmas Carol and it is lovely but Bleak House is the first long novel of his I have ever read. So excited! I love the way he writes. He describes things so well with so much detail without the story getting bogged down and lost. The story moves along quite nicely. In my opionion anyway. :) I must say though, that I have always loved long descriptive books.

I will let you know how I get on.
What you are you all reading at the moment?
Have a lovely day.

*sigh* I surely do love Lemony Snicket. Such clever books! I just bought The Bad Beginning today at a thrift store. :) I'm reading #4 though.
And Dickens! I love him too. I almost bought a ton of Dickens books as well but I decided to wait until I finish the ones I already own. :}
Maybe we should change our book club read to 'The Series of Unfortunate Events' since we're both reading them. heehee :)

Oh Aimee. Stop filling up our comment box!! Sheesh!!


Just kidding. Love Lemony Snicket and cannot wait until The Wide Window. :) That's my fav part of the movie. Oh that Aunt Josephine!

Under the Greenwood Tree...heh heh. *EHEM* we haven't started reading it yet because I don't have it! I requested it at the library but they haven't gotten it! Doh!

Lizzie: That is an excellent idea. We should change it. :)

Love you both!

Oh I'm so glad I stumbled onto your lovely site! I love Lemony Snicket the movie, but have not read the books though.

I have just finished reading My Sister's Keeper and am reading The Little Prince:)

Hope you don't mind me adding your blog to my reading list!

You are very welcome Sher! Thanks for commenting. I LOVE the The Little Prince too. So sweet! It's funny, Lizzie was just telling me about My Sister's Keeper. I'm trying to remember what she said about it. Was it good?

Happy reading!
