Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles (Sherlock Complete Set 5)
"11th Jan - 24 Jan. Had this for years, then finally picked it up after enjoying the film. Absolutely Brilliant. Can't believe I had it that long without reading and can't wait to read more after Uni."
Great Dream of Heaven

"25th Jan - 29th Jan. A really enjoyable book with a mix of short stories, characterisation was brilliant and some gems in there with the title story, Coalinga 1/2 way and blinking eye among others."
Cold Skin

"30th Jan - 6th Feb. Original. Unique. Strange. But I liked it, not something I would expect to enjoy but I couldn't put it down, plenty of twists and an ending that makes you think."
Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Scarlet (Sherlock Complete Set 1)

"6th Feb - 19th Mar. Slower going than Hound of Baskervilles but it gets pretty good by the end. Interesting to see how Holmes and Watson meet."

"28th Apr-29th May. Alot of characters make it hard to get into for a long time but the last third of the book makes up for it."
The Elephant Vanishes
The Elephant Vanishes
"9th Jun - 24th Jun. Not as fun for a light read as some of his books, but he still plays with interesting concepts using fantastical elements."
Hard-Boiled Wonderland And The End Of The World
Hard-Boiled Wonderland And The End Of The World
"27th Jun - 6th Jul. Different from his others as it is clear SF fiction. There is a lot of substance but I struggled to become enamoured in the plot."
After Dark
After Dark
"8th Jul - 12th Jul. Still my favourite Murakami, It has the most interesting perspective, taken from the view of the night. It is extremely visual, and feels just like a film."
Sputnik Sweetheart

"12th Jul - 15th Jul. Not my favourite of his, although some of his most interesting characters, I have questions at the end that I just can't ignore."
Norwegian Wood
Norwegian Wood
"17th Jul - 30th Jul. On my second reading this book moved me further than any book ever has, The protagonists lack of emotions actually makes this book all the more emotive."
Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman
Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman
"30th Jul - 3rd Aug. I don't know if it's because I have now got used to his style, but I far preferred this to his other short story collection - 'The Elephant Vanishes', He envokes great atmosphere."
