What's New: October YA Release List & Giveaway!

Tomorrow is OCTOBER!! Hurray! :D  So many reason I am cheering the arrival of this month, my friends.  Partly because September was just awful all the way around. From beginning to end. I have no idea why but September just decided it was going to not be my friend this year. But mostly, I just love October---it's always been my favorite with the Fall weather starting to creep in, the spooky decor going up, costumes to be planned, and then the big day itself---Halloween! :D Yea, I love October. 

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 September giveaway was: Sarah! Congratulations!!
