What's New: December YA Releases & Giveaway!

 It's December! Almost time to bid farewell to 2012!  Anyone have their holiday decor up yet? I'm planning on breaking mine out this week sometime.  Gah! There is always so much to do this time of year.  It's also the time of year when the publishing houses slow down their new releases a bit, so the list this month is a little smaller! Still, definitely some awesome titles on their that I'm excited about!

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 things first! The winner of November's giveaway was: Melanie! Congratulations! :D
