As far as YA movie and TV adaptations go, this summer has been pretty darn exciting! It honestly feels like there was news dropping every week. In case you missed it, here are the highlights:

And on top of that, the third book adaptation, Always and Forever, Lara Jean is in production. Head over to author Jenny Han’s twitter to watch the adorable announcement video.
Have you read Elizabeth Acevedo’s novel With the Fire on High? If you haven’t, you definitely want to get on that. (And read The Poet X while you’re at it!)
