[Stacking The Shelves] #13 - Valentine's Day Special

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews featuring the books we got this week.

RECEIVED FOR REVIEW:

  • Dark Eden by Chris Beckett - This cover is so beautiful! It was so hard to capture how amazing it is because it reflects with different lights. It's a Dystopia novel about a planet called Eden and I can't wait to start reading it! Thanks to Random House!

  • Reflected by Rhiannon Held - Third book in "Silver" series, this is a Urban Fantasy story about werewolf packs. I haven't heard of this author before I got the book but I'm excited to check it out. Thanks Tor Books for sending me this!

Valentine's Day special:

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I'm usually not a big fan of this holiday since I think that you don't need one day to tell someone you love them, you should do it every day. So I told my boyfriend that we can just skip it this year. But when I came home from work he surprised me with a beautiful roses and reservation to Thai restaurant that we have never been to. I can't believe he did that because he's not very romantic type so I was really surprised lol 

What's on your list today? What did you end up doing for Valentine's Day? Leave comments below & I'll return the favor!

  5. Sounds like a great Valentines Day! How awesome. I feel the same, they show me everyday so I don't need anything. Then my poor hubby got me flowers delivered and they were all dead. I guess cause of the storm. Felt so bad for him.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS and have a great time with your new books!

  6. You know... I used to not like Valentine's Day myself. But as I have gotten older and have lost friends and gained friends... my dad almost died last year in a motorcycle accident, I realized it's not about this one day and a Hallmark holiday. It's just a day to make extra special. To tell your friends, family, pets, dr whoever that you hope they are having a fabulous day. I just appreciate the day more and more every year. Anywho... I love roses they are my favorite flower... and I really love yours!!
