The young adult genre is quite straightforward in terms of its interpretation: books written for readers in youth. Although this genre already spans over different genre, they are still consistent with the characters’ age and ‘coming out of age’ issues. Although most “adults” disregard Young Adult books as teenage books, we are proud readers of them here on Readers of the Night!
It is not surprising that most of the YA books we loved have already been transformed into movies. Here are our ten favorites (including some of the trailers):
1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
2. The Pact by Jodi Picoult
3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling
5. Divergent by Veronica Roth
6. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
7. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
8. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) by Rick Riordan
9. The Immortals of Meluha (Shiva Trilogy) by Amish Tripathi
10. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I love all these books. I haven’t seen all the movies though as I am always scared that I will be disappointed. How many of these have you read or seen? Any favorites?
