"What's New" February YA Release List & Giveaway!

Where did January go?? LOL, January always goes a bit like that for me, so I guess I shouldn't be all that suprised that February is already here.  Here in CA, winter is already sneaking away from us---77 degrees yesterday!! :(  Beautiful, but I hope that doesn't mean an early and long summer. ACK. 

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 January giveaway was: Melanie! Congratulations!!
