What's New: August New Release List & Giveaway!

Oh it's going to be a busy month, dear friends! The youngest is going back to school, my oldest is moving into his own apartment, my middle-est (lol) is going to a Paul McCartney concert---we basically raised our kids on Beatles music so she is beyond excited!! Camping, working, lots of reading...a busy but definitely a FUN month!

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: Carina!!  Congratulations!!
