What's New: March Releases & Giveaway!!

It's March! It's almost spring, and the rain is already starting. Perfect time to curl up with a book and read away the day! :D

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! Lots of cool looking titles this month so lets get to it!

First off, the winner of February's giveaway was: Tiffany Drew! Congrats, Tiffany!!
