One of Our Thursdays Is Missing by Jasper Fforde
One of Our Thursdays Is Missing

While I don't think anything will top the series starter, "The Eyre Affair," this was a delightful addition to the Thursday Next series and the best one in a while. The switch in voice is indeed a bit disconcerting at first, but I, too, came to enjoy it. As always with Fforde, a jolly good read!

Nell Gwynne's Scarlet Spy

While certainly not destined for the ranks of immortal literature, this little piece of fluff was just plain fun to read. I gobbled it up in one swallow, laughed, and was greatly saddened to know that this was probably the last new thing from the late Kage Baker. Her work has always been a favorite of mine (as with all authors, some works are better than others) and this felt like the whipped cream and cherry on top of her oeuvre. [PS - it's just a bit blue, although I think only the most sensitive would find it objectionable. Just fair warning.]
