Monday Pep Rally: Which Movie Adaptations of YA Novels Are On Your Must-See List?

Since we've all gotten so used to getting our thoughts down in 140 characters - and it's fun to keep the conversation flowing - we've take the Pep Rally to twitter! Every Monday, we host a twitter chat and we'd love you to join in. Just keep an eye out for the #MisfitPepRally hashtag!

Hey, Misfit-y types!

So last night, I did something I haven't done in a looong time - I finished a book. Reading one, not writing one. Unfortunately, free time is not something I have in spades these days, so it felt pretty momentous to sit down and read something cover to cover.

It helps when the book is as good as this one:

This, of course, is the sequel to IF I STAY, which I read a few months ago and loved. I finished it right before the movie came out, and I'm dyyyyying to see it. I mean, have you seen the trailer?

It's heartwrenching, sweet, and sexy, all rolled into one. I don't know how I've stayed away this long. Oh wait - yes I do. It's called not having a babysitter.


One day....

So, Misfits - what movie adaptations of YA novels are you chomping at the bit to see? Or HAVE seen? What did you think of them? Let us know on Twitter using the hashtag #MisfitPepRally!

I haven't read the book, but the trailer had me teary-eyed. I did watch Divergent for the second time last night! I talked my husband into seeing it. He enjoyed it more than he let on... ;) I do want to see The Maze Runner, but it'll more than likely be on DVD. I'm saving up my next baby-sitter for a movie night for the last Hobbit movie!

I've seen maze runner which was wonderful. Now I must read the book. I want to see the 5th Wave. Which the book I didnt like so much but the concept was good. I heard Delirium and Smoke and Bone are coming to movies. So I would love to see that. I loved the Fallen series and hear that too is coming to movies. So many! Like Before I fall. That book was like ground hogs day meets If I stay. That's also coming to movies. Lots of book movies but will it be better than the book? The movies Immortal Instruments ] and Beautiful Darkness wasn't. Here's to hoping they are!
