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

Hurray for October and hurray for Fall! :)  My favorite time of the year has begun --- and I would be so much happier if the stinkin' weather would finally come down out of the 90s here.   I think it actually got up to 100 today. Booo.  It's a great month for books, though! Lots of books that I'm really excited for out this month!

First things first! The winner of September's giveaway was: M.C. ! Congratulations! :D
