On my nightstand:

First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde


Product Details


I haven’t read them all, and the ones I have read haven’t been in order, but they are laugh-out-loud hysterical.

Imagine if your favorite fictional characters lived their lives in their novels.

Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy may have raised a brood of brats and one of them is a kleptomaniac.

Miss Marple could have a secret affair with the parish rector and the president of the altar guild has been found dead.

Catherine and Heathcliff sleep in separate rooms and one of the chambermaids has disappeared.

Anyway, Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series is about … Thursday Next. She’s a literary detective who is called to enter books and figure things out that involve the characters.

They’re part sci-fi/time/dimension travel, part humor, part mystery. Maybe a little romance. Whatever you call them, they’re great fun.

Check ‘em out!


Praying for: Bernie, Lisa, Gina, Josh, Dan, and Marilyn.

Currently reading: Love Finds You in Lahaina, Hawaii by Bodie Thoene.

Last movie: … I have no idea… Maybe The King’s Speech??
