What's New: July YA Release List & Giveaway

Summer is in full swing around here--temps are up in the 100s UGH. I really need to move somewhere that doesn't get over 85. That sounds heavenly. We're getting ready for our regular 4th of July bash here and we also just did ALA in San Francisco, which was a blast--but also not. More on that in my ALA recap post :)  Its July, people, and my brain is melting in this heat, so that's all I'll say for now LOL. 

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 June's giveaway is Yun-A! Congrats!
