Brisingr (2008) – Christopher Paolini

I will finish the Inheritance Cycle! It must be done! When I finish Brisingr I will get Inheritance right away and finally finally finish what I’ve been rereading and rereading for all this time. And as I write this, for some strange reason I feel like I actually read Eldest before Eragon without ever seeing the movie (which I’m pretty sure everyone knows by now is awful).

Sputnik Sweetheart (1999) – Haruki Murakami

After countless visits to Dymocks browsing through the shelves I finally decided to just go ahead and buy some Murakami. I rarely buy books that I’m not completely certain are fantastic (or to finish a series because you can’t just not own the complete series). The covers of his books are absolutely gorgeous and the blurbs sound wonderfully poetic.
