The 2012 Desktop Wallpapers: YA Mega Franchises

As has become an annual tradition here at Novel Novice, we bring you a new, year-long collection of desktop wallpapers. In previous years, our desktop wallpaper calendars have exclusively featured The Twilight Saga, as many of our original fans came from that fandom exclusively.

But these days, we have followers who are fans of many books. So for the 2012 desktop wallpaper calendar, we’re featuring several popular YA series. This collection of desktop wallpapers takes a lot of work, but it is our gift to you — a way to say thanks for your support all year long.

Special thanks to contributing staff member/graphic artist guru artistephie, for contributing three of the wallpapers below (February, June and October).

As always, we’d love for you to share these with friends — but PLEASE, DO NOT repost the wallpapers themselves on other sites, but rather link back here to download the full images! (Posting a *small* thumbnail is fine, as long as it links back here for the full-sized image.) Thanks!

To download, just click to view full-size, then right-click to save.

For the comments: Which series is your favorite? Any series you’d like to see new wallpapers for in the future? Tell us below!

  1. Wow these are fantastic! I just downloaded the January one. :) I especially love December’s! Way to begin and end the year with Harry Potter.

    Happy New Year!

  2. I love all of them! I think you should do Hourglass and Divergent next time :) Also very creative for putting The Hunger Games in March!

  4. I was really looking forward to the usual Twilight desktops… I don’t know most of these this year so I guess I’m opting out. That’s disappointing. Thanks for the last couple of years, anyway!

    • Same here!! I do not know most of these movies and I really want the Twilight Calendars. Do you know of any other websites where you can get them?

      • The hunger games, secret circle, harry potter, snow white and the huntsman, vampire diaries? any ring a bell?

  12. Next year im looking forward to more harry potter, a little bit of twilight, a ton of hunger games because catching fire is coming out in November of 2013. The rest should be bestselling movies. And maybe a couple tv show ones.

  13. These are all amazing and I love the one for June from the twilight saga. Just beautiful. Also loving that one for July for Snow White and the Huntsman.

  14. As a tradition, I’ve kept Twilight as my calendar/desktop for three years now (thanks to the calendars you’ve made). I was really looking forward to having an entire year of that again depicting Breaking Dawn Part 1 – will you be doing that? I see June and November here (they are great, so thank you for those), I was just curious if you were going to make calendar desktops for the entire year 2012 of Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 (and then of course finish it next year with Part 2)?

      If you read the post above, you’ll see that we decided to do MULTIPLE series/books for this year’s calendar. So no, we will not be making any more calendars for 2012. They take a LONG time to make, and we just don’t have the hours to create more than one collection of calendars. But we hope you’ll give some of these other books a chance — they really are all quite wonderful!

  15. Where are the rest of Breaking Dawn? I only found June and November.

    • Sara | Novel Novice

      As you’ll see in the note above, this year’s calendar features MULTIPLE book series, so we only made two months for the Twilight Saga (June and November, as you noted). We invite you to give these other wonderful series a try!

      Since we are not a Twilight fan site, we wanted to expand this year to feature multiple franchises based on YA books to satisfy ALL of our followers. We’re sorry you’re disappointed, but we’re very pleased with this year’s calendar and plan to continue featuring multiple series in the future. We love Twilight – we do! – but there are many other books we love as well, and we hope you’ll give some of them a try.

      • I really like this calendar too, because i’m also a Harry Potter,The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars fan, but i was hoping that maybe you would make a Twilight bonus or something(because I see that i’m not the only one asking for it).So thank you very much for this calendar.Maybe it’s not what we Twilight fans expected,but it’s awesome.

  18. Love the Breaking Dawn ones, Harry Potter, SWATH and Vampire Diaries. I guess I’ll pass on the rest, but at least I have half the year :)

  19. Sorry, forgot the Clockwork one! So I guess I still have 6 (since January is done).

  20. The HP one in December is amazing! I can’t wait to use it!

  21. HUNGER GAMES AND HARRY POTTER ALL DA WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D ONLY 2 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Man I wish I had gotten March’s but since I just finished The Mortal Instruments 1-3, April’s is perfect :) LOVE December!!!! :)

  23. Is it possible that you can do one on the ‘Hush Hush Saga’, ‘Angel’ Series and ‘The Flower Shop Mystery’ Series.

    Hush Hush Saga: Hush Hush, Crescendo, Silence, Finale
