Kerin's Top Ten: YA Book to Film Adaptations

Hello World!

We live in a world were adaptations are becoming far more common than original ideas in film and television.  This is especially true for YA novels and series. And, why not, right? If people enjoyed the book, then they'll enjoy the movie or TV show as well, right?. Well, that's not always the case. Actually, it's usually not the case. Film adaptations of books are hard to do, because they are different mediums, and some things that work in a book don't translate well on the screen. Which is why more often than not, fans of the book, are disappointed in the movie or TV show adaptation. It would be almost too easy to create a list of book adaptations that I didn't like, so I thought I'd challenge myself, and think of the ones that did well. So without further ado, here's my top ten favorite young adult book to film adaptations. 

*Disclaimer: This list only includes adaptations where I've both read the book and see the film. If I've only seen one, then it's not on the list.*


10. A Wrinkle in Time




9. The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe



8. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire



7. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban



6. Divergent



5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower



4. Love, Simon (Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)



3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow, Part 1&2



2. The Fault in Our Stars




1. The Outsiders
