If the peppermint mocha steaming hot on my desk and the Christmas lights twinkling in my periphery weren't dead giveaways that the end of 2012 is nigh, then this certainly is: our annual poll of the year's best YA! Yep, Hollywood Crush is asking you (yes, YOU!) to vote for the teen tome that won top placement on your bookshelf. (And, boy, we don't envy your tough decision!)
From series enders (Ally Condie's "Reached;" Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's "Beautiful Redemption") to debut efforts (Kiera Cass' "The Selection," Julie Cross' "Tempest") to the book that left us all quivering in a puddle of our own snot and tears (John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars"), it's been another great year to read young adult. Though it may be tough to play favorites, that is the task before you. Cast your vote for the best YA novel of 2012 after the jump (or else we'll send a hydra demon after you!).
Polls close Monday, December 17, at 12 p.m. ET!
