This book....there are no words!!! I loved this book so much, I am literally obsessing over it. I read this over the summer and my mind is STILL stuck on it. I loved it so so so much. You should read it too and love it with me! SO FREAKIN GOOD!! I knew when I finished this book over the summer that it was probably going to end up my favorite read of 2012 or at least my second favorite read.. I just...ah I just love it.
That's it for my top 12 reads of 2012!!! This list was INSANELY hard to put together, but overall I think I made the right choices (: Now I know in this post I had said I was going to talk about some favorite characters and such BUT I have decided I am going to post that in the next few days because this post is already long and I haven't even gotten to the giveaway!!!!

Thank you Haley!! This is a great oporttunity to get books in case you can't buy them (like me, I coulden't buy a single book this past year :/)
And also, thanks to your list there are two books that now I wanna read.
About the book number 10... I read the summary in Goodreads... and it sounds like a movie I saw... It's called The Invisible... I'll leave you the link from wikipedia, so you can read what's the movie about, may be you'll like it.
