"What's New": December YA Releases & Giveaway

Well I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a safe Black Friday! You might have noticed it's been a bit quiet around here lately; I went on a little unplanned hiatus for a few weeks due to a few health issues and other distractions.   It was nice to just take it easy for a while, take a little break from everything, and spend a nice Thanksgiving with my family. :)

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: Katie! Congratulations! :D
(I know there is probably more than one Katie that entered lol---I've emailed the winner so you know who you are! :D)
December 2013 Releases:
Just like previous months, I've put a little lve by those books that I am really anticipating! As it happens every year, December is the month where the releases slow down quite a bit, but we still have some fantastic books to look forward to!
