5 YA Book To Movie Adaptations you may not have heard of...

In a world where we see at least 4 or 5 YA book to movie adaptations a year, it can be hard to keep track of all of them that are released. This being said, many go under the radar and therefore there are some that you may not have heard of. Some of these are quite old but I hope that you find at least one adaptation that you have not seen or heard of. So let's get started...

5. The Spectacular Now (2013)




Based on the book of the same name, this film follows Sutter played by Miles Teller who after a long night of drinking wakes up on the lawn of Aimee played by Shailene Woodley. Amie is a bookish teenager and Sutter tries to introduce her to a new way of life but it may not be for the better...
A really great American indie film that does wonders considering the source material. This is a definite favourite. 

4. Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (2008)




Based on the book, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, this film follows Georgia Nicholson, a British Teenager who is trying to find out the secrets of boys and how to survive the teenage. 
Brilliantly funny and a staple in my teenage years, it is a film, however, cringey than I will always laugh at and that every teenage girl should watch at least once. I will also recommend the books too, as they are just great. 

3. Private Peaceful (2012)




Based on the book of the same name by Micheal Morpurgo, it is a World War I story which follows two brothers as they fall in love with the same girl. 
This film touches on the horrors and harsh realities of war and is definitely worth the watch. 

2. Now Is Good (2012)




Based on the book of the same name by Jenny Downham, this film follows Tessa, a girl who has leukaemia and decides to stop her treatment and then follows her adventures as she tries to do as many things on her bucket list before she dies. 
This film will leave you in tears so get the tissues ready, but is definitely worth the watch. 

1. How I Live Now (2013)




Based on the book of the same name, the film follows Daisy as she is sent to live with her cousins for the summer but World War III commences...
This film is definitely worth a watch and deals with subtleties such as mental illness. It is also a faithful adaptation of one of my favourite books.  

What unknown YA book to movie adaptation do you know? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is...

Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female representation…
