When you hear about a new movie coming out based off of a YA book, do you immediately make plans to watch the movie so you can compare it to the book? Or do you prefer to stick to the story your imagination tells you instead?

Some people choose to watch the movie and it fits all of their wildest imaginations, if not more, while some…..fall flat, to say the least.

Yardbarker decided to compile a list of YA book film adaptations and decide once and for all if the films were excellent pieces of art or a complete waste of time.

Book to film adaptations include, but aren’t limited to:


The Princess Diaries

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants


Me, Earl, And The Dying Girl

You can check out the full list of films here.

Are there any great book to film adaptations that stick out in your mind? Is it for good or bad reasons? Let’s talk about it in the comments!
