What's New: September 2016 YA Releases & Giveaway!

Aaaaand, I'm back! :D I hope everyone had a fantastic August. It's September---aka the month my favorite season kicks off!! Let's hope the California weather complies and doesn't just keep pretending it's summer. :/  I've missed blogging but it was a good time to take a break because on top of school and family and crazy work schedule, I had a bit of a medical set-back as well. August was just not my friend. Anyhow, while I'm still in the midst of getting used to a "new normal" for myself, everything else has calmed a bit.  I missed this blog very much and hope I can be back at it more regularly now. If you're reading this right now, thanks for sticking with 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 August's giveaway is Melissa M.! Congrats!
