I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

First Among Sequels (Thursday Next, #5) by Jasper Fforde

First Among Sequels  - Jasper Fforde

I really enjoyed it but it lost that ½ a star because it wasn’t quite as funny as the first four books in the Thursday Next series.  This is the only book that has really had a cliffhanger so I know that he’s going to write another one.  I was a little disappointed that he got rid of the “Friday’s going to be a time traveling hero” storyline because I really liked that idea.  It was a bit weird reading Thursday as a 50 year old  - maybe that was why I didn’t find it quite as funny as the previous books.  I did finally get one of the jokes from the previous books – Millon De Floss’ name is a pun on George Eliot’s book Mill On The Floss, which, because I had never heard of any of Eliot’s books I didn’t get, but since I started reading Middlemarch and found out that we actually have a copy of Mill On The Floss I now get the joke.
