After Twilight: More YA Books Coming to the Big Screen

In addition to Beautiful Creatures, which received a less-than-stellar reception from film critics, and the next installation in the Hunger Games series, Hollywood is turning to additional YA print properties in an attempt to fill the gap left by the conclusion of the Twilight franchise.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Veronica Roth’s Divergent, and Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone all are under development. City of Bones debuts in theaters this August.

For a more detailed list of more novels being morphed into movies, see Films Based on Books: The 2013 Edition.
