OCTOBER 8, 2012
Movie Monday -- 2013 Movie Releases of Teen Books

Motion picture companies have expressed interest in producing movies from more than 60 young adult books. Take a look at the list and tell me which books you would most like to see made into movies. For me, it’s hard to choose. It’s like being a kid in a candy store, but a few I’d love to see made as movies are Delirium, Divergent, The Book Thief, The Graveyard Book,and...and...and … Next year’s confirmed movies from best-selling teen books are:
