New Year Resolutions, Anyone?

So0 I have many New Year's resolutions this year, but reading at least (if not more) a book a week is one of them. I am a little jealous of all those lucky readers in this community who have read one-hundred books in a year! I hope I can reach that goal this year too, maybe! Anyways, I've decided that after each book I'll write a "mini" review and then what I will be reading soon, I would appreciate feedback on the books that I will be reading, to know what you guys thought of them before I start, thanks! Also, do you guys have any New Year resolutions (sorry off topic). Back on topic...who here has heard of Book Depository? is a UK website, sending books around the world with no shipping fee! This is really convenient for me, as I am from Israel, where I am severely lacking in a good English selection of books.

Just finished:
1. Sputnik Sweetheart - Haruki Murakami
- I really enjoyed this authors style of writing, the book was intriguing and interesting. I ended up just recently ordering another book by this author called "Norwegian Wood."
2. Invisible Monsters - Chuck Palahniuk
- This is the second book I have read by Palahniuk and again I must say he certainly has a unique writing style, mostly grotesque, but very interesting. This was a fast read and had a totally shocking ending.

Currently reading:
3. Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert
- I am only about sixty pages in, while I don't always agree with the authors opinions, I love how it is told from a very personal point of view, I feel as though Gilbert has become one of my close friends as I listen to her openly speak about her life and her travels towards finding balance.

Next up:
4. Norweigian Wood - Haruki Murakami
5. All books of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
6. The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
7. Metamorphosis - Kafka
8. Notes from the Unuderground - Dostoevsky
