“Waiting On” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I should have asked the question “How could someone who was missing be in two places at once?” Instead, I asked the wrong question — four wrong questions, more or less. This is the account of the second.
In the fading town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea, young apprentice Lemony Snicket has a new case to solve when he and his chaperone are hired to find a missing girl. Is the girl a runaway? Or was she kidnapped? Was she seen last at the grocery store? Or could she have stopped at the diner? Is it really any of your business? These are All The Wrong Questions.
Although I haven’t read the first book, Who Could That Be at This Hour?, of the All the Wrong Questions series (even though I own the book), that doesn’t mean I am less excited about the second book of the series to come out! A Series of Unfortunate Events was my favorite series growing up. Despite the darkness of the books, I find a subtle humor in the way the characters, such as Lemony Snicket, deal with their situations. I think a lot of why I find the humor is because of Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket is his pen name), who has such a wonderful personality and humor.

What books are you waiting for, this Wednesday?
