Stacking the Shelves #83: February 2015 Book Haul Part 1

Happy Valentines Day <3

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend :)

These past couple of weeks have spoiled me with some epic books!
I am so excited for all of my books in today's post -
I did not expect to receive a Meg Cabot book! Nor did I expect the ARC for Everything Everything to be SO beautiful!!! I'm sure that the actual story will be even better than the cover, but still...

I had a bit of a hiccup mid-week; my family has been passing this dreadful stomach virus to one another for a while now. I had the pleasure of being the last person to get hit with it, but unfortunately I was the one who got it the worst and landed in the ER with severe dehydration. It was quite scary. I am so relieved that the hospital staff were so nice and helpful. I was able to come home the same night and proceeded to sleep on and off for about 14 hours. So thankful for having a great support system to let me recuperate peacefully while knowing that my kiddos are in good hands :) I'm feeling much better now, but still feeling a little queasy and weak. Must eat more Jell-O, hee hee...

And, to those of you who celebrate Valentine's day, enjoy!
Please have some extra chocolate for me! I cannot wait to feel better so I can dive into my box of chocolates... and probably my kids boxes too!
