Is The "Young Adult" Boom Dwindling In Books As Well As Movies?

Is The "Young Adult" Boom Dwindling In Books As Well As Movies? | Author tips and help | Scoop.it
There's a lot riding on Divergent, which comes out this Friday. Studios are hoping it'll show there are still audiences for young-adult films other than Hunger Games, after the dismal performance of several other films. But also, says the Wall Street Journal, there's hope it'll rescue the struggling young-adult book market.

Finally! "Also, studios are getting wary of novels that feel too much like cookie-cutter copies of other stuff. Especially Twilight clones." 

Evangeline Denmark's curator insight, March 21, 2014 12:23 PM

I'd argue that the lack of a stand out bestseller gives young adult readers the opportunity to explore other books in the genre. I don't think the category in books or in movies is going anywhere any time soon.

SSS Solutions's curator insight, April 10, 2014 11:56 AM
The content you share on social media determines the network you build and the audience you get. There may be times when you stumble upon great content but don't want to share it all right then. An awesome app, BufferApp solves your problem by queuing up your content so that it could be shared at a later point of time depending on the time the users are more active.
