Another one of my blog posts made it to the Quirk site: Five YA Books that would Make Great Movies.
It’s official: Hollywood has turned to Young Adult books for movie magic inspiration. The large fanbase for these books provides an opportunity to bring new stars in the limelight, make big bucks, and show off new special effects. After the explosion and mania of Harry Potter and Twilight took hold, followed by The Hunger Games, Beautiful Creatures, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Divergent, The Maze Runner, The Book Thief, and The Fault in Our Stars.
I’ve thrown in Maureen Johnson (for the horror/thriller), Natalie Sandiford (for the history/Cold War buff), and Jane Nickerson (for some true Southern gothic fairy tales).
Which YA books would you like to see turned into a movie?
