A Series of (Un)Fortunate Reviews was envisioned in a brainstorming session in late summer of 2007 as a place to share reviews of the books, movies, and music that the staff of the Matthews Public Library in Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania, reads, watches, and listens to.  The main writer for the blog is Angie the librarian, though over the years reviews submitted by guest reviewers have occasionally been published on the blog.  Currently Miss Shayne has been contributing regularly to A Series of (Un)Fortunate Reviews during her university breaks.
