Thursday Next in the Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde

Summary: Thursday Next hides out in the Well of Lost Plots, while waiting for her baby to be born. While there, she forgets who's the father of the baby, thwarts another Hades and rescues BookWorld from horrors so great that any book lover will run.

Title: Thursday Next in The Well of Lost Plots

Author: Jasper Fforde

Genre: Fantasy

The Take-Away: You must read the series in order. That's all there is to it. Otherwise, you'll run the risk of spoiling certain plot elements. Just like this blog post might do for you.

I got way too wrapped up with the lives of fictional characters when their authors aren't around. Or when the story isn't published. Or why they seem so real when they only exist on paper. Jasper Fforde is fabulous at taking all of the things authors obsess over and making them seem real. Like we aren't crazy and that the characters do take over the plot.

Recommendation: Read 'em, but read them in order.
