What's New: April 2017 YA Release List & Giveaway!

Wow, why do these months keep going by so fast!? It honestly feels like the year just started and here we are already in April. The weather is turning warmer day by day, I'm getting the itch to garden even though I seriously suck at it LOL, and everyone's allergies are going nuts!  My days have been racing by due to lots of changes at work and a fun project that I've been working on at home that combines many of my favorite hobbies in one little creation---I'm having so much fun. Fill your life with hobbies, people. There is so much joy in just surrounding yourself with things you love. ♥

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 Evie!  Congrats!
