You may have heard stories about a wizard boy, a girl fighting in the Hunger Games, a boy escaping the maze, and a sick girl befriending a sick boy. So many more stories can be told, and have been told, that deserve to be read. Many authors for the past few years have released books into the genre of teen fiction that could be found on the bookshelves of many. Odds are you have probably picked up a book by John Green or recall the name of at least one of his books. With the increase in books becoming movies, books have resurfaced in the age of technology.

Some of the most popular book series include The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments, The Lunar Chronicles, The Selection, Divergent, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Each one falls under the category of teen fiction/fantasy. The Hunger Games is among the most talked about book series after the movie came out back in 2012. Since then, everyone sees Katniss Everdeen as a one of the strongest and most rebellious female character to appear in a book. Harry Potter got it’s fame when author J.K Rowling agreed to have the series be made into a movie. The book series is one of the most popular book series and is known for the main character itself, the game quidditch, and the continuing/exciting plot. Even today, Harry Potter has an effect on young readers and continues to grow in popularity with the coming of a new book and a newly built theme park.

There are some readers who prefer to read something more realistic, such as The Fault in Our Stars, Fangirl, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, If I Stay, and 13 Reasons Why. Perks of Being a Wallflower is quite popular in the young adult age range. The Fault in Our Star, along with many other books by John Green, are the most popular stories circling social media. Many quotes and photos can be related back to his books. John Green writes with a lot of emotion that is in favor of teenagers and is popular among young adults.

Most of these books seem to be favored more by the female readers but each book has a good story-line that can appeal to anyone. Also, most of these books have been made into movies or will soon be made into movies, which is something to look forward to as a reader. Put down your phone, sit outside, and read a book.
