Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, by J.K. Rowling
I'm reading Harry Potter for the first time and man, it's that good people have been saying. Had watched the films two years ago but didn't make an impact on me, but I'm finding the books quite interesting and cool.

Life's been crazy busy again, so this post will cover two weeks.
The Schewinigan Fox by Bob Plamondon, which was about Jean Cretien's time in office. I found it to be rather informative.
Misquting Jesus by Bart D. Ehrman, which is about how mistranslations of the Bible happened. I found it both informative and interesting.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling, which was a well-written and fun read.
The Giver by Lois Lowry. I don't have an opinion on it yet because I've only read the first 4 chapters.
Smarter Than You Think by Clive Thompson. The first chapter (which is all I have read so far) discusses Deep Blue and chess playing algorythms, and some related matters.

Last week I finished American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land, by Monica Hesse and I really liked it! Thought it was a nice change of pace with my usual true crime books (arson instead of the murders I typically read). Overall, it was an interesting and wild story.
This week I'm working on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling, and End of Watch by Stephen King (#3 Mr. Mercedes series). I'm roughly 75% through with both so hopefully I'll finish those and then I can move on to Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris!

Fool's Assassin, by Robin Hobb. Hobb has surprised me so far with the plot, so I'm intrigued to see where this leads (although I'm not expecting a happy ending).
Blackwater, by Kerstin Ekman. I'm not usually a big fan of crime stories, but this book doesn't seem like the usual "whodunnit" so I think I'll enjoy it.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, by J.K. Rowling, read by Stephen Fry. I've been planning to re-read the series, but when I got the chance to try an audiobook app for free for a month I decided on experiencing it in this format instead. It's been great so far!
