One of my new year’s resolutions is to keep track of the books I read this year and my thoughts on them. To help motivate me to keep this up I’m going to post short musings on each book on my blog. These posts are not meant as a book review, but as a way for me to put in writing the questions and issues that each book raised for me. I would love to hear your thoughts if you’ve read any of the same books!

I started this book at 12pm on Wednesday and at 8pm on Wednesday finished the last sentence. That tells you what I thought of it right there.
The story of Harry Dresden, hard-boiled wizard P.I., is addicting. It’s also witty, fast-paced, light-hearted, deadly serious, and full of everything that makes noir, well noir. There’s a host of femme fatales, a villain without a single redeeming quality, and cynical wisecracks a plenty from Harry.
