File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents

File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents is a middle-grade comical mystery novel by Lemony Snicket, and around book 2.5 of the All the Wrong Questions series.

Personally, I strongly recommend you read this series in order – first Who Could That Be At This Hour? and then When Did You See Her Last? I have read (and loved) them. Due to my weird reading and blog schedule, though, the actual reviews aren’t posting until June. Stay tuned!

Anywho, in the midst of young apprentice Lemony Snicket’s time in the mostly abandoned Stain’d-by-the-Sea and his larger, overarching mystery (which we shall not get into now, so as not to spoil all you lovely bibliophiles), File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents covers his smaller, but no less tantalizing mysteries.

Here we dive into the details of ghostly hauntings, neighborhood kidnappings, potentially rhyming vandals, and missing food – and more!

Oh, Lemony Snicket, how I love thee!!!

File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents is humorous and wonderfully mad from the outset! Delightful dialogue and entertaining narration make for one blissful Angie!

The hilarious, witty conclusions are housed in the back of the book, each story providing a page number to read the deduction. I loved this silly, fun quirk and enjoyed it thoroughly. I was continually chuckling and just felt HAPPY reading File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents.

This is a really, really fun story – it actually made me want to watch one of my favorite shows, Pushing Daisies, which it was reminding me of occasionally.

File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents is truly and completely a joy to read – and I can’t wait for more!!

My only sadness? Supposedly there’s only two more books left in the All the Wrong Questions series!

I can never have enough of Lemony Snicket.
