With every day, there seems to be all kinds of interesting young adult fiction news. It's a hot genre for movie makers now, so there are lots of deals in the works or already in production.
Author John Green talks about his book The Fault in Our Stars being made into a movie.
One of the YA book-to-movie adaptations I'm most looking forward to is for The Maze Runner. Here's an interview with some of the main players -- lead star Dylan O'Brien (who I love as Stiles in MTV's Teen Wolf), author James Dashner and others.
I think most of us love when movie adaptations follow our favorite books as closely as they can, but that's not always possible. Recently, three changes to the upcoming Catching Fire (second in the Hunger Games trilogy) were revealed. Click here if you want to know what they are.
We are only 11 days away from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones hitting theaters. Yay! Also, in related news, I'm going to be dressing as a Shadowhunter at Dragon*Con this year. I'll get someone to take my photo and try to remember to post it next month.
Also, I'd like to add a new change coming to this column beginning next month. I'm going to be mixing things up a little. Some months I'll include a review of something I've read. Others, I'll be interviewing YA authors about their books and writing in the young adult genre. So, stay tuned!
And since we talked a lot about movie adaptations this month, what young adult book would you like to see turned into a movie?
