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

This cannot be, guys!! It's completely impossible!! How did the end of this year zoom up so fast?? When ever I think about it already being December, my head starts to spin a little. Wow. Where did it go?  Well, as much as it floors me, I'm always happy when this time of year rolls around. Usually it starts at Halloween for me, but this year, feeling so cruddy for most of September and October, I crapped out a bit on my favorite spooky holiday. :( So now for Christmas, I am so ready, I've got my decorations up and my house is all aglow, I start my days with a cheerful little cup of hot chocolate, and I've even made a sizable dent in my Christmas shopping already. Let's go, December

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!

Special note for December: As with most years, December is the month when the publishing world slows to a near halt. As you can see, from the list below, there are some great releases, but the list is comparatively small.  SO I've decided for this month's giveaway, the winner will get to choose any YA book released in 2016! Happy holidays, everyone, and GOOD LUCK! 

First things first! The winner of November's giveaway is Iana! Congrats!! :D
