What's New: August YA Release List & Giveaway (and a little announcement)

I can't believe its already August!  Life is speeding right along, my not-so-little guy  *sob* is headed back to school next week--his first year in middle school *sobs harder* D':  So, that along with family craziness, having to take extra hours at work, and just life in general have sadly kept me from giving this blog much attention. And honestly, guys, I hate feeling like I'm half-assing it. So I've decided to take the month of August off.  I have a few blog tour stops already scheduled so I do hope you'll stop by for those, but other than that, I just have to give myself one less thing to divide my attention between for a little while.  I'm not quitting completely, so please don't forget about me! :D  ♥♥♥

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 ! Congrats!
