There are books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which went beyond expectations upon the release of its movie adaptation back in 2012. There are also books like Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, which only set a definite bar when it comes to movie adaptations of best-selling novels.
But you know what? That doesn’t matter. Each of these books has their own unique features. As a book lover myself, let’s all stop judging one by its cover – literally and in this case, by its movie adaptation – via some of the best lines from today’s generation of young adult fiction novels:
“I have kept track of the boy with the bread.”
– Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
“He told me once to be brave, and though I have stood still while knives spun toward my face and jumped off a roof, I never thought I would need bravery in the small moments of my life. I do.”
– Tris Prior, Divergent, Veronica Roth
“It’s such a beautiful question, Luce. I adore you for asking it, and I wish I could explain it better. All I can tell you is this: The only way to survive eternity is to be able to appreciate each moment.”
– Daniel Grigori, Fallen, Lauren Kate
“I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It’s okay if you have to leave us. It’s okay if you want to stop fighting.”
– Gramps, If I Stay, Gayle Forman
“In spite of everything that’s happened, I’ve never thought of myself that way. Being a victim means being powerless. That you won’t take action. Always…always I’ve done something to fight for myself…for others. No matter what.”
– Rose Hathaway, Vampire Academy, Richelle Mead
