What's New: June YA Release List & Giveaway

It's June!! Summer vacation has officially started in this household!  We've got lots of fun things planned so I hope it's a great one this year.  The release list is actually not huge this month, but there are definitely some great titles---highly anticipated titles, at that!! 

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: Christina S.! Congratulations!!
