"What's New": March YA Releases & Giveaway!

March! Already!!  The weather is every so slowly warming up outside and its time to plant some trees and flowers. :)  I don't know why I say that---I am a terrible gardener, but I definitely give it the college try every year.  I'm much better at Winter activities (which basically consist of sitting on the couch reading my books with a mug of hot chocolate! :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!

First things first! The winner of February's giveaway was: Cheyenne! Congratulations! :D

March 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!
