Waiting on Wednesday: Jasper Fforde

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

It feels like I'm always waiting for Jasper Fforde. I'll be waiting a looooooong time for the follow-up to his amazing dystopia SHADES OF GREY (no relation to the fifty), but I don't have much longer to wait for the next Thursday Next novel. I've been madly addicted to this series for years. The first introduction to the genre-defying adventures of the intrepid Thursday is in THE EYRE AFFAIR. This is one of my favorite books. I advise against starting this series in the middle - pick up THE EYRE AFFAIR, and if it's too weird for you, well, the series only gets weirder (in delightful ways). THE WOMAN WHO DIED A LOT is the seventh such adventure and, as usual, I can barely wait.

I've actually seen this in another WoW a few weeks ago. It doesn't seem like a type of book I would read, but I hope you enjoy it whenever you get to read it:))

Shame on me, I have yet to read Jasper Fforde, despite the many recommendations. I really should, I can imagine a couple of my friends are excited about this publication too!
