Tastings: A Series of Unfortunate Events – The Austere Academy

Yea, I’m back into children literature. Specifically, one of my goals is to finish the series of unfortunate events by this year. Don’t want to drag out a series for too long, although to some extent, it depends on whether I can find the books at the library.

The Austere Academy

Well, without further ado, may I present some of my favourite passages from The Austere Academy, Book 5 of 13 in the series.

Friends can make you feel that the world is smaller and less sneaky than it really is, because you know people who have similar experiences.

and so if you are a student you should always get a good night’s sleep unless you have come to the good part of your book, and then you should stay up all night and let your schoolwork fall by the wayside, a phrase which means “flunk”.

The comprehensive exams went on and on, and if I were to repeat all of the tiresome and pointless questions that Mr. Remora and Mrs. Bass asked, you might become so bored that you might go to sleep right here, using this book as a pillow instead of as an entertaining and instructive tale to benefit young minds.

And with that, I shall run off to write the review, soon-ish.
