So, the time has come for me to do the list that no one cares about!!! MY 2012 FAVORITE YA BOOKS!

I think in someway this hasn't been the most awesome year for me in terms of reading, I started the years reading not-so-great-books, a mean, some were nice, but that was all. Bu, I do read some amazing books these year and I don't think I will be reading more books this year, so, here it is, my 10 favorit books of 2012 (in order of reading)

1.- THE SCORPIO RACES by Maggie Stiefvater (January)

So, this book was like waking up one morning with the feeling of sunlight in my face... so it's something so amazing. Reading this book was unbelievable, I didn't have much faith in it at the begining,The Wolves of Marcy Falls Trilogy by the same author is in fact my favorite YA series, and Maggie said that TSR was a much better book of hers. I didn't believe it, but then I read it and WOW! it's so... it's so, IDK, it's fantastic and special and unique and... there isn't a word in the dictionary for this book. It has its own pace and a really honest feeling to it, for me this is a love story that breaks the boundaries of love between two people, this is a love story of two young adults who are loving an island (Puck) and some deadly water horses (Sean) It's so amazing in a way I can't really convey, not enterely. It isn't heartbreaking, but all the opposite because the writing is amazing, and the characters and the feeling of this world itself, but it did have those moments when I just wanted to sit there and die. It's epic, to some point.

2.- FORBIDDEN bye Tabitha Suzuma. (May)

WHAT!? Wait, WHAT!?, this book really made me said that a hundred of times. I still don't know exactly what to say about, it's a really sad book, it really have some amazing insights of life and tragidy and I think even rage and desesperation and confusion. It's heart-reaking, but more than that its amazinly surprising, it made me so frustated, I- didn't have the characters' believes, but I didn't have the courage to thrash at them. It is really beautiful, in a tragic, confusing, tormented sort of way. I mean, no one can be really prepare to deal with incest, not even when it's fictional, because, ladies and gentlemen, this is fucking realistic, If you don't cry reading this book, then you're really sick. 

3.- DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth (May)

Such a different book from the one above. So I'm a Tribute, okey?, I'm a Hunger Games fan, I am everything that describe this fandom, and iit's amazing how rare it is to find another book with that strongness. Again, I wasn't expecting a lot of this book, I even bought it in papaerback (I love more the strong feeling of hardbacks) but it is incredibly surprising, a little soft at the begining, but really nice, really beautiful, I think the narrative it's perfect, then the whole story change and Beatrice, this amazing character has to make a choice, but even when it is brave, I don't love this choice by its own, but I love what Beatrice make out of it. Divergent is really fantastic, its strong, fierce and there're strong bounds between Tris and the people she care about, though it's all really complicated. I mention The Hunger Games above because that it's one of the finest dystopies I've read, and so does Divergent. I swallow this book with such a good taste in it, so I'm ashamed to say I haven't read Insurgent, but Divergent stands for re-reading before the sequel, so I'm waiting to 2013.

4.- THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO by Patrick Ness (May)

There come a time in the life when you stop expecting things, you know? It's like, what else could it be in the world? But then you read this book title, you buy the book, you read Divergent first and you expect even less, but WOW, I really have to knell to talk about this book, it's so beautiful narrated, such a twist in story-telling, and it delivers such an emotion, such feeling, t time it is truly writtn with beutiful and realistic rage and OMG it's amazing. This book really made my heart beat, made me cry like a pig in a slaughterhouse, it made me breathless. It's fast-paced, it keeps you at the very edge of ANY kind of seat, I mean, what else can I say, this book despite its contet really restore my faith in  humanity, I even cried in a bus full of teens of my school, I cried while reading it and cursing the tears on my eyes for not letting me read normaly. My God. Patrick Ness I have given you my heart. Tom, Manchee and Viola are such remarkable characters, I'm sure I will never forget them.

5.- WARM BODIES by Isaac Marion (July)

I'm going to be quick for this one. Unique, deep, full of spirit, hopeful, beautiful, people, beautiful.

6.- THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF ASHES by Cassandra Clare (November)

Why did I wait o long to read this second part? Am I crazy? Is there something wrong with me? I mean, this is really amazing, it kept me there all the time, in that world, amid these awesome, butt-kicking characters, What else cuould I ask? Truly amazing, again this book filled me with fantasy, and romance (now forbidden) and this dangerous feeling that I love because this books owns it. It is not fair to read book like this and be certain that I will never be able to write something so unique like this. Haha, the next book in my list will be a surprise. Ta-a-ra-ra-raaaaaa

7.- THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF GLASS by Cassandra Clare (December)

WHA CAN I POSSIBLY SAY!!?? Even better than any of the two first book. It was so... arrrggggggg. Yes, that it's the word -onomatopoeia - I am looking for, this book it so ARRRRGGGGGGGG. I can say much about t, or it will be spoilers - though I'm possibly the only one that have just finish this book in the 7 books series - but if I ever thought that City of Bones, or City of Ashes have broke my heart... I was wrong, this book really broke it many many times, It was amazing, I couldn't take my hands off it. I'm so loving this series.

.....

Wow, I'm ashame.... these aren't 10 books.... but it's not my fault, but don't cry, I will keep talking, these are my honorary mentions, I really liked them, but it felt wrong to put them in my favorite list:

SILENCE by Becca Fizpatrick (third book iush series)
FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by Diana Petefreund (retelling of Persuasion)
PAPER TOWNS by John Green (John Green, people, he's awesome, vlogbrothers??)


And my God, I will be commiting sin if I don't mention JANE EYRE, not as an honorary mention but kind of BEST BOOK I HAVE READ ALL ACROSS MY LIFE, I already have talk about it, I have express my love for it, and what else can I say? It's beautiful.

And finally PERSUASION (I just want to clarify I read this month before For Darkness Shows The Stars, and I read that because I wanted to see how much it was bound to Persuasion, its original base) Jane Austen really knew what she was doing. I mean, Mr. Darcy and Captain Wentworth are... gentlemen, they're how every man in the planet should be. For real.



So that was all...

I really need to talk about this books with a living person, WHY AE MY FRIENDS NOT-READERS????

My God...

So, bye, I guess.
