What's New: February Releases & Giveaway!!

Phew! So we made it through January! First month of the year is always VERY very busy around here, with birthdays and vacations and holidays and everything! I never did get around to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of Stories & Sweeties, so keep an eye out for that this month!

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! Now let's get to the list, because this month is full of awesome! :D

First off, the winner of January's giveaway was: Courtney Renee!! Congrats, Courtney!
