Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
by J.K. Rowling

Started: February 26, 2010
Finished: March 2, 2010

My least favorite of the Harry Potter books. It's not a horrible read but it's definitely the most childish. Plus there are a lot of plot holes. 341 pages. Grade: B-

The Last Good Kiss
by James Crumley

Started: February 21, 2010
Finished: March 4, 2010

Why had I never heard of this book or author before? A fantastically written, very engrossing cross between Raymond Chandler and Charles Bukowski, two of my all-time favorite authors. 244 pages. Grade: A+

Sins of the City: The Real Los Angeles Noir
by Jim Heimann

Started/Finished: March 4, 2010

A book filled with high quality reproductions of photographs of the seedier side of life in 1930s-1940s Los Angeles. Each photograph is accompanied by informative writing describing what is going on. This book does a great job of recreating the atmosphere of Los Angeles during the original noir period. 160 pages. Grade: A-
