What's New: July YA Releases & Giveaway!!

July is here! In this house we're gearing up for our 4th of July party and we're in the midst of summer here---though some days it feels like it and some days it still feels like spring. Ah, California. Always unpredictable. Keeps us on our toes, I guess.

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!

First things first! The winner of June's giveaway was: Stacy! Congratulations! :D

July Releases:
Just like previous months, I've put a little lve by those books that I am really anticipating---whether I can't wait to read them or I just can't wait to have my own finished copy!
