What's New: March YA Release List & Giveaway

March is here!  Next week I lose an hour of sleep to the "Spring ahead" so I'm not looking forward to that LOL. Other than that, I'm glad for Spring's arrival, ready to get out into my garden and hopefully we'll have a nice loooong Spring full of rain---California definitely needs it! I realized that I just completely ignored my 5 year blog birthday in January!! Shame on me!  Keep an eye out for a celebration post sometime this 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 February giveaway was: Danielle S.! Congratulations!!
