It's been a while since I wrote a post about A Series of Unfortunate Events, and although (hopefully) there will be one soon with my thoughts of the final season of the Netflix series, I felt like it was time for me to talk about it a bit more again. I finished the last book quite a while ago, and now I think that means it's time for me to work out which book is my favourite.

When a book has you waking up at five in the morning to finish it, you know it's a good book. It doesn't happen often to me any more - the last book that did this to me was Outside by Sarah Ann Jukes. And to be quite honest with you, I didn't expect it from this book.
Firstly, I feel that I need to point out that this was the first season of this that I'd watched after reading the books. With all of the previous episodes, I'd watched them and then got around to reading the book. I feel that this changed my views on a few things that had been changed. I'm going to go through these, episode by episode, and talk about my thoughts. There will be spoilers, so stay away if you haven't watched it yet!
At the beginning of this year, I vowed to myself that I would finally stop buying more books and read all of my physical TBR books first. I've tried this before and then bought more books and gave up, because, quite honestly, this is a near impossible task for a bookworm.
My experience with Netflix shows is quite patchy. I will usually at least try to watch the shows that are the most popular, but I often don't make it more than a few episodes in because I get bored. I've watched Stranger Things, but I did find the second series really boring and it felt to me as if the show had been stretched on for too long. But I absolutely love Netflix's adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events, so really there's no saying of whether I will be into something that is popular without me giving it a good go!
