The Fault in Our Stars. If I Stay. Divergent. Are you noticing a trend at the movie theaters?

Of course, that’s just some of what’s come out in theaters this summer. Hollywood has been adapting YA novels at a rapid-fire pace pretty much ever since Harry Potter made it cool. And a little quick googling will bestow many hits upon thee if you’re searching for what book-to-movie might just be the next Hunger Games. Here are just a few promising adaptations still in early stages of production giving you plenty of time to catch the book first - if you haven't already read them!

Listen Before You See It

With movie awards season in full swing, I started thinking about all of the soon-to-be movie novels that I need to listen to  before I head to the theaters in 2014. With everything from a slew of young adult selections to hard-hitting biographies set to hit the big screen this year, there is a lot to look forward to!

What book turned movie are you most excited to see this year?
