Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week we asked which classic you most wanted to see get a YA update. 1984 by George Orwell won with 22% of the votes, Emma by Jane Austen placed second with 17% of the vote, and Les Miserables by Victor Hugo came in third with 16% of the vote. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
We still have adaptations on our mind. It seems like a lot of YA books and series are getting optioned for movies or television shows — sometimes before the book is even published! But what about older titles that are just as great? Which older (pre-2000) YA series do you think would make the best television show or movie? Vote in our poll below, or leave a comment if there’s something else you think would be even better!
