    Great vlog! I love the video effects and music! I am nowhere near your video skills level :D

    My favorite book of 2012 is... GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers! It is sooooooooo good! I love historical fiction, and Robin knows her history! I love the supernatural part of it, with Mortain, and the crazy murderous villains in the book, that balanced with Mortain and his daughters. I love how both Ismae and Duval are imperfect, physically and mentally. It's also great to see histoical fiction (like 1400s historical fiction) in young adult literature. There are hardly any (good or bad)!

    Thank you for the very cool giveaway!

    Your vlogs are always worth the watching. Not only do we get to salivate over books, which are always awesome, but we get to be temorarily immobilized by jealousy over your sick chair dance moves. I know I'm not alone.

    My favorites for the year 2012 are: SHATTER ME, CINDER, SHADOW AND BONE, UNDER THE NEVER SKY and STORMDANCER. Please don't ask me to narrow it any further. I already gouged out my heart not posting about 20 other equally worthy books.

    Definitely TFiOS and Code Name Verity. They're also two of my favorite books of all time, so I can't really believe they were published this year.

    The random dancing totally rocked. :D And so many books, eeeee!! ^_^ I love watching these vlogs because there are so many really neat books out there that I might not have heard about otherwise; it's really great! :) My favorite book this year was definitely Insurgent by Veronica Roth. It was awesome getting to read the next installment of the story, and I absolutely loooved it. Even named my cat Tris. XD

    Oh. My. Gosh. Do I have to choose? There's just so many that stand out! Probably The Fault in Our Stars by John Green or Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris . . . They both made my heart shatter in the end into little itty bitty pieces.

    Why make me chose!!! So cruel, so cruel. I must say that I loved Bitterblue, Insurgent, Rise of Nine and so much more than I dare say!! I think at the end of it all, I loved Fear the most, it was just pure awesome!

    My absolute favorite of 2012 was Poison Priness by Kresley Cole! It was completely different than anything I have read in the YA genre--full of twists and turns, paranormal powers, and yummy romance!!!!

    Great vlog--I wanted to drool over so many of those titles!!!!

    My favorite book of 2012 was Spellbound (Hex Hall #3)! I wasn't able to get my hands on many 2012 releases so that would have to be my favorite. A great ending to the series :)
