Today I will be highlighting the books I've read in 2012 that made an impression to me in the Young Adult genre. Like for example, it hit me in the gut because of its dark sorrow or sent me flying to paradise because of the hot guy in it. It is in order and as for my highly anticipated books, I'll be featuring it tomorrow for my very first Waiting on Wednesday entry. So you can come back *puppy dog's eyes* and take a look at it. : )

Need I say more? I spent half of my life fangirling over Daemon Black and Katy Swartz's steamy relationship. I officially became a rabid fangirl. And yes, the author gained another stalker. Check out my review of this phenomenon here. You can't miss this.
NUMBER TWO NUMBER TWO NUMBER TWO NUMBER TWO NUMBER TWO
Yes, damsels and knights, Under the Never Sky grabbed the second spot of my Best of 2012 because this fresh and futuristic dystopian novel rocks. Like seriously, everything in my world. My teddy, my pony, my socks, my fish and etc. Breathtaking. I know this is no excuse but unfortunately I didn't make a review of this awesome yet. But you can clicky the picky for Goodreads. *grins*
Why oh why did I forget about Storm? Anyways, Storm bagged the second spot tied with Under the Never Sky.Because it was paradise. Specifically boy paradise. Again no review because I was probably too busy wiping my drool and nosebleeding to even write one. xD
NUMBER THREE NUMBER THREE NUMBER THREE NUMBER THREE
This powerful novel bagged the third spot as it brought me to experience how a runaway lives. And the suffocation brought by a sickness, emotionally and physically. Very moving and compelling, Don't Breathe A Word will take you to an unavoidable reality where security and over-protectiveness varies differently. No review again. *waves NO TO VIOLENCE! banner*
NUMBER FOUR NUMBER FOUR NUMBER FOUR NUMBER FOUR NUMBER FOUR
Dark and stunningly engrossing, The Masque of the Red Death, got an award for worldbuilding. Plus it's a retelling of Poe's book so, nuff said. Diseases as potent as fear and desperation were highlighted in this bleak and artistically gloomy book. A must read for Poe fans out there. My complete review here
NUMBER FIVE NUMBER FIVE NUMBERFIVE NUMBER FIVE NUMBER FIVE
The last but certainly not the least, Hemlock, is one of the book in the werewolf genre worth reading. Filled with suspense and built with a surprisingly unique plot, Hemlock will make you howl. xD No just kidding! Please read it. Even when it's angst-ridden, it will get better when you venture farther. Read my complete review here. If you dare. Mwahahaha!
Eherm...that laugh was certainly creepy. There you have it, my Top 5 Best of 2012 for the day two of #ArmchairBEA. Unfortunately, I can't hold a giveaway because I'm totally broke. Body, money and soul.
Thank you for reading through this

PS. Apologies for the super long spaces. I now know that blogger was my arch-nemesis in my past life. Don't worry, if it's any consolation, I'm still swearing here. ; )
PSS. I need more followers, my lovely damsels! I follow back, just mention in the comments area. Don't be rude. A damsel is not rude. They're nice. And cute. And..okayy..okayy. I'll stop now! xD
