What's New: June YA Release List & Giveaway

Welcome, June and summer! I decided to take a little blogging break this past week because, frankly, every time I got on the computer to blog, I found myself on twitter looking (and drooling!) over all the BEA tweets! Very unproductive! So I decided it was best to just steer clear of the computer for the week lol. Oh and #booksfortrade...also very addictive. And Pinterest. Another time-suck, but I just love it. :)  Anyways.  There's quite a lovely list of books down below. Hopefully I will have time to read some of them---it always takes a few weeks for things to settle down in my house after summer vacation starts!

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 April's giveaway is Elizabeth H.! Congrats!
