Tamara Hala (tamara_hala) I just realized I've been posting questions here but haven't posted my list (I could have sworn I had!). Here it is..

1. The Hot Zone - Richard Preston (interesting but just ok overall) -- January 2008
2. Playground: A Childhood Lost in the Playboy Mansion - Jennifer Saginor (really stupid and poorly written) -- January 2008
3. My Life Among the Serial Killers - Helen Morrison [audiobook] (really stupid and poorly narrated) -- January 2008
4. His Dark Materials Book I - The Golden Compass - Philip Pullman (Pretty good but no Harry Potter) -- February 2008
5. The Millionaires - Brad Meltzer [audiobook] (Kind of dumb but held my attention at work) -- February 2008
6. His Dark Materials Book II - The Subtle Knife - Phillip Pullman (A lot better than Book I) - February 2008
7. Tuesdays with Morrie - Mitch Albom [audiobook] (I read this years ago and loved it, and I loved re-reading it) - February 2008
8. True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa - Michael Finkel (Another letdown) - February 2008
9. The Five People You Meet in Heaven - Mitch Albom (Enjoyed this) - February 2008
10. For One More Day - Mitch Albom (Another great read) - February 2008
11. The Funny Thing Is... - Ellen Degeneres (very very disappointing) - February 2008
12. The Secret - Rhonda Bynes - February 2008 (Pretty hokey, not my cup of tea)
13. My Lobotomy - Howard Dully - March 2008 (Entertaining but not amazing)
