What's New: August YA Release List & Giveaway

Goodbye, July! Don't let the door hit you on the way out! :D Buh-bye now. 
 *sigh of relief*
July was a doozy for me, dear friends.  It saw blazing hot temps, a raging wildfire within miles of my house making for hideous air quality, stressful understaffed times at work, my car breaking down completely, and worst of all, the tragic and heartbreaking passing of two people very close to my family.  It was a tough one. I can't deny I am glad to put July behind me.  SO here we are in August--still hot and my heart is still hurting, but it's a fresh new month. My little guy starts school soon. He's just started pee-wee football, which is hilarious. He's so tiny, he looks like an orange on a toothpick running around in that helmet.  Speaking of hilarious, did you see the list below? I've got so many hearts down there it looks like Valentine's Day. Yes, August is an amazing month for YA releases!

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 international 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 July's giveaway is Veronika! Congrats!
