"What's New" August YA Releases & Giveaway

August already!! Wow. This year is flying by.  My kid goes back to school this month and with that comes a few more hours of quiet reading time! Woooo! :D  But it's been a  fun summer---we have a few more fun day trips to cram in before saying good-bye to another great summer vacation.

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 July's giveaway was: Sašenka!  Congratulations! :D
