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

My goodness, May is here already!! For all you lucky ducks headed off to BEA next week, have a fabulous time! Know that I'll be stalking your book finds on twitter so don't disappoint me! :D  I want to seeee and drool over those lovely copies of Caraval (and others, of course lol)!!   I'm hoping to get more back into the groove of things this month--but of course, it is May, so just as the house stuff is getting finished up, I'll have my youngest getting out of school for the summer! Eeek lol. So, well, fingers crossed I can get this blog back into a more regular schedule. *sigh* Life just feels like it won't slow down for a second!!

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 April's giveaway is Tanya G. ! Congrats!
