If you’ve read A Series of Unfortunate Events (or saw the movie), you know the plot will keep you on your toes, but the distinctive details in its style are what made it unforgettable. 

Now that Netflix is blessing us with more Unfortunate Events content to consume, it’s a good time to revisit where it all started: on paper. You can get a set of all 13 books in paperback for $74.96. 

If you really want to dive into the fandom, you may also want to check out Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography to get inside the head of the mysterious fictional character the author of the series portrays. The book starts at $5.99 on Amazon.


And for super fans only (Lemony Snicket’s words, not ours), The Beatrice Letters will give you more insight on the woman Lemony could never get over. The series of letters, penned by Ms. Baudelaire, was published before the series’ 13th and final installment, of which, The Beatrice Letters contains a clue. It’s priced at $14 on Amazon.
