Seven books to celebrate the Chinese New Year

At B & N Reads Ginni Chen tagged seven books to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Sheep, including:
A Wild Sheep Chase, by Haruki Murakami

It’s all about sheep this year, which makes this gripping thriller about an elusive, mutant sheep strangely appropriate. Only Murakami could write a mystical mystery about livestock. A young man uses a seemingly benign image of sheep in an ad campaign. Unbeknownst to him, one of the sheep pictured is more than it appears, and the subject of a menacing man’s search. Our narrator becomes ensnared in a quest to track down the sheep that becomes increasingly surreal.
