Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week we wanted to know which apocalypse foretold in YA lit you thought was the most likely–or the most interesting. Despite the fact that a robot apocalypse is obviously what we have to worry about most (where can I seek shelter from my robot overlords, Siri?), the majority of you cast your votes for an epic natural disaster as seen in books like Life as We Knew It and Ashfall. In the comments, Leah also suggested that we need to watch out for man-made environmental disasters like the one portrayed in Ship Breaker. Thanks to all of you who voted or left a comment. You can see the results of this and all of our previous polls in the Poll Archive.
Since the Hunger Games movie is still topping the box office charts, we want to know what you think about movies that are based on YA books. This week, our poll asks which movie based on a YA book is the best. Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if we omitted your favorite. (We have a much longer list this time, but there were just too many to include all of them!)
