I know Harry Potter was incredibly influential in making reading awesome again, but it seems since Twilight there has been an influx of Young Adult books aimed at Teenage Girls. Yes, I know there was Judy Blume in the 70s and such, who wrote books geared toward the age group, but it kind of tapered off. Am I wrong?
PS. This is for a paper I’m writing. Opinions are much appreciated.
Also, I’m not saying Twilight is good literature, I’m simply saying it’s popular and many of the same people who read Twilight and still line up for the movies at midnight, read the Hunger Games and were at the movie (and even more former Twilight fans have ditched it in favor of HG).
I’m bummed about this. I I like stylistic continuity with movie series. My biggest complaint about the Harry Potter movies were how different they were from each other. Different people have different interpretations of the work, and I like it when each movie has the same interpretation all the way through.
