What's New: February YA Releases & Giveaway!

February!! Wow, January really got away from me!  So much going on...ALA in Seattle was a blast (I'll have a recap up when the books that I shipped get here) and I'm planning to share the wealth with a 3-year blogoversary giveaway!  Keep an eye out for that in the next week or so!

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 January's giveaway was: Shelly! Congratulations! :D
