The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #2)
This one is amusing like the first one, but it doesn't seem as action-filled in the end. A lot of time was spent with the Baudelaire children trying t...more

We Need to Talk About Kevin

Thumped (Bumped, #2)
Geez. Somehow, I thought maybe this one would be a bit better than the first one. The ending was pretty good, but it was a long time coming. It takes...more

The Land of Painted Caves (Earth's Children, #6)

Twilight (Twilight, #1)
