    Kafka On The Shore

    This book hit me hard...in a good way. Murakami has a way of penetrating the depths of my consciousness like no other writer can...and I think I'm in love with Miss Saeki :)

    The thing I’m most afraid of is me. Of not knowing what I’m going to do. Of not knowing what I’m doing right now. Haruki Murakami
