Stacking the Shelves (26)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Bloggers share what new books (physical or virtual) they got this week. I like getting new books and showing them. So here's my haul for this week! 

The first week of this year was pretty great! I love thinking about all the books that I'll read this year. So far it's looking very good. I've set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 100 books this year. Last year I made 120, but with having a job again I don't think I'll read that much this year. 
Although it's very dangerous for my TBR pile. I want to buy all the books! This is me holding back. I bought three books this week (and more today, but that's for next week!). 2013 looks like a promising book year!
