First of all, I joined the 2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, hosted by Evie at Bookish. This challenge is to help motivate us readers to get through those books on our shelves we've been wanting to read but haven't gotten to yet (you can click on the picture to sign up if you also suffer from this problem). 

You can choose your level of 'commitment' for this challenge, and I chose "A Sweet Kiss". That means I want to read 21 - 30 books from my TBR shelf! Here's my list:
