What's New? January YA New Releases & Giveaway

Happy New Year!!! I hope 2015 turns out to be a fantastic year for all my blog readers. :) So as always January brings this little blog's anniversary (5 years!) and my own birthday (eeek!) and hopefully there'll be some new fun things in the works here at Stories & Sweeties soon!

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 November giveaway was: Afsha! Congratulations!!
