YA Books being made into films. Read the book first!


When YA books are made into films it is an ideal opportunity to encourage readers to pick up the book ahead of the release. Equally, a successful film can encourage reading – either of the book itself or of other books in the series or maybe more books by the same author. So here is a list of YA books made into films in 2017 so far and planned for release in in 2017/8.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (already released)

Wonder by R J Palacio – December 2017

Maze Runner The Death Cure by James Dashner (February 2018)
