2016 Swoony Award Winners

2016 was a busy year for me and I wasn't able to spend as much time on the Swoony Awards as I would have liked, add to that a little behind-the-scenes drama and my heart wasn't quite into the awards this year. I still love the Swoony Awards and I'm deciding whether I will continue doing it for 2017. Anyway, I wanted to give the results for 2016 for all those who have participated and we did get a lot of great books on the list (Click here to view the full 2017 list).
