Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week we asked you which YA book you least wanted to see adapted into a movie. Libba Bray’s Printz Award winner Going Bovine was at the top of that list, followed closely by The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (in the comments, Kiley wrote, “I feel like as a movie it would just become another horse movie, and Maggie Stiefvater’s book is so, so, so much more than that.”), and Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral and The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey in a tie for third. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
This week, we have a very basic question for you: what’s the best first kiss in YA literature? We’ve added a lot of options to the poll below, but if your favorite isn’t included, let us know in the comments! We also want to know what you think makes a good first kiss. Is it just the passion of the kiss? Does the setting matter? Does what happens before or after affect your choice?
