What's New: September Releases & Giveaway

September is here, and with it comes the first day of FALL!! Yay! I love fall :) Summers are really hot here, so I am ready for some cooler weather, and hopefully a little rain to cuddle up indoors and read a book by!

So if you're new to Stories & Sweeties, here's a little run-down of this feature: at the start of each month, I do a little thing called the "What's New List & Giveaway" where you'll find a full list of the new releases in YA for the month, and entry to the giveaway. At the end of each month, one lucky winner will get to choose any new release as their prize! TONS of great releases this month, so lets get to the list!!

First off, the winner for August is: Indigo @ Shattered Prose!! Congrats, Indigo!!
