What's New: January YA Releases & Giveaway!

It's 2013! We survived :D! And it's on to another year..
This month brings lots of fun stuff---my 3 year blogoversary (3 years, guys!! Holy cow, where did the time go!) so expect a lovely celebration there. My birthday is also this month. AND ALA Midwinter is coming up! Not only am I excited to attend, but it's also my first time visiting Seattle! Fun!
So with all this, I've been pretty excited for January to get here!

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 December's giveaway was: Len! Congratulations! :D

January 2013 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!
