Another series of books that I have read is the Series of Unfortunate Events. These are really great books and will keep you hooked until the very last one. Ironically there are 13 books, the unlucky number. The books are all talking about how these three kids, Violet, Klause, and Sunny Baudelaire, who's parents have died. The reason for the death was a tragic fire to the Baudelaire mansion. After there house burns down they go to live with countless relatives, that they never even knew that had, starting with Count Olaf. After being with the Count for a whole book they escape and the books move to the reptile room. In this book they are living with their uncle who owns countless amount of reptiles. Their uncle is killed and they get to move again. Next they go to their aunts house. She lives in this house way above the water, so as not to get eaten by the fish. She also dies and the children move once again. Are you seeing a pattern here. Each time a new book starts they move to a new relatives house, and at the end of each book the relative has usually died and they have to keep moving on. The next books in the series are: The Miserable Mill, The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, The Vile Village, The Hostile Hospital, The Carnivorous Carnival, The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, and lastly The End. To give you a little hint the name of the book has to do with what is going to be going on the story. I suppose you could say it gives you a preview of what is to come. These books are great fictional stories that will have you on the edge of your sit until you are done reading! I really recommend these books to all who like a great adventure.
