"What's New" June YA Releases & Giveaway

Well, it's a bit late, but luckily nothing came out this month until the 4th anyhow! ;)  I'm not officially back from hiatus yet, but I did want to get this month's post up so you can all see what amazing titles there are in June!

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 May's giveaway was: Cheryl!  Congratulations! :D
  June 2013 Releases:
