What's New: November Releases & Giveaway!!

This year needs to sloooow down. Seriously. I mean, it's almost time to start Christmas shopping!! Yikes. But it's that time again. Time for pumpkin pies with lots of whip cream, stuffing, roast turkey and family. The book releases are awesome this month, so let's get to it!

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 giveaway. At the end of each month, one lucky winner will get to choose any new release as their prize!

First off, the winner for October is: Karen @ I Read to Escape! Congrats, Karen!
