Have you gotten wrapped up in the new TV version of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events? Us too! There's nothing like a good mystery where it's Orphan vs. Evil ! Plus all the clues from the books have been lovingly sprinkled throughout the show - it's such a delight!

If you haven't read the books or seen the show yet, here's a quick overview: Three young orphans are sent to live with their (reportedly) closest living relative (played by Neil Patrick Harris in the new series), who turns out to be a fortune hunter with evil intentions. Wrap that story in a patchwork blanket of clues, foreshadowing, and red herrings, all painted in weirdly gothic hues. 

You know what I'm going to tell you next, don't you? If you haven't read the books, go - now! - and read them! Read them right through! You'll thank me. 

If you've already read them, here are some more things I think you'll love.
