What's New: April YA New Releases & Giveaway!

So I'm not sure if anyone has notice but March was a bit slacky here---I've been pulled away from this blog recently because LIFE. But I'm posting when I can and hanging in there ;) That's all we can ever do, right? In other news, it's Spring! :D  Time to get some flowers & veggies into my garden (because I fail at growing things from seed LOL) and get my hammock set up and a glass of ice tea so I can read away outside in the fresh air and (shaded) sunshine! :D  Doesn't that sound lovely?

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 March's giveaway is Krutula! Congrats!
