If Teen Books Could Tweet

As I was checking Twitter – for work! – last week I stumbled upon a woman tweeting a generic dystopian YA novel. Her “novel” has the stereotypical hallmarks of the genre: an oppressive, stratified soceity, some sort of testing, a love triangle, the trope of the “Chosen One.” It’s great. I love dystopian YA novels, so at first I was a little annoyed, but it’s actually really wonderful. Take a look: 

So funny! And it got me thinking, “If other teen books could tweet or characters in those books, what would they tweet about?” I came up with a few for fun:

The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Grasshopper Jungle
Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
The Lightning Thief
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
We Were Liars
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Pretty Little Liars
Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepherd
The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Harry Potter

Any other teen books you’d love to see tweet? Also, if you love Twitter, make sure you’re checking out our Tweets of the Week series.
