  • YA readers put the passion back into books. From Twihards to Potterheads, these teens create mega best sellers, know every detail of their favorite novels, can pick each discrepancy in their long-awaited book-to-film adaptations, and can bust box office records. They write fan fiction, go to fan conventions, and steal movie props that their favorite characters sat on. 

    But my favorite trend with the YA set has to be fan art—teens who are so inspired by the words that they read, that they redesign book covers, create faux movie posters, or sketch how they imagine a book’s most memorable scene. One YA novel, soon-to-be-film that has inspired such creative adaptations is Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, which is slated to hit theaters August 22nd.

    It’s the story of seventeen-year-old Mia who survives a family car wreck only to land in a coma and face an impossible choice—does she want to continue in this world given everything she’s lost, or would rather let go? It’s a powerful, layered novel that makes you think, and it's inspired some beautiful fan art. Below is a collection of some of our favorites—many from the If I Stay movie Tumblr.

    The magic of the Harry Potter series (besides, you know, the wand-waving and stuff) is how easy the books are to sink into: the characters are delightful, the language is beautiful, and the lessons are profound. But these beloved tales of adventure and coming-of-age become even more rewarding when you’ve read all the books that its author relished as a reader.
    The creatrix of the most beloved children’s series of ever is herself a ferocious bookworm (surprising, right?) who read and wrote stories all through her childhood and earned a BA in French and Classics at the University of Exeter. Here are five titles that cast a spell on Joanne Kathleen Rowling.
