What's New: September YA Release List & Giveaway

Summer is almost officially over---and as a big fan of Fall and cooler whether, I can't say I'm too sad about that.  Another thing that Fall brings is a crazy amount of book releases. This list is eye-popping, amazing, so chock full of bookish goodness. And look at all those hearts down there---so many that I personally am so excited for. So lets get on with the list!

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 August giveaway was: Jasmyn!  Congratulations!!
