Hi All! It’s Becky. I just finished watching Hulu’s Looking for Alaska and it’s got me in the mood for the next great YA adaptations. Here is a list of five YA adaptations that will be coming our way in the next year.
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
This movie is already available on Netflix and I can’t believe that I missed its release. The story features three intertwining stories about being stranded during a snow storm filled with hi-jinks and romance. I loved the book (which will always have a special place in my heart for introducing me to the writing wonder that is Maureen Johnson) and watching this movie just got put at the top of my weekend to-do list.
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
NBCUniversal has already ordered a pilot for a TV series adaptation of McManus’ debut novel about a murder that happens during detention. The book was twisty murder mystery with a surprise ending which should make the TV series a good time to watch.

Dear Sweet Pea by Julie Murphy
The Disney Channel just bought the rights to Julie Murphy’s first middle grade novel about a girl learning to deal with her parents divorce while also “helping” with a local advice column. I looked forward to movie with an adorably sassy young teen and a whole lot of southern charm.

Tiny Pretty Things by Dhonielle Clayton and Sona Charaipotra
I love movies and TV series set in the world of ballet and I can’t wait for this drama based in a competitive New York ballet school. The first season is current filming in Toronto and the show will premiere sometime next year on Netflix and I’m sure it will be a melodramatic good time.

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
Last year Netflix released the movie adaptation of To All the Boys I Loved Before and it was adorable perfection. The streaming service has announced that they have already filmed adaptations of the second and third book in the series with the second movie being released February 12th 2020 and I can not wait to watch it.
