Sales of sci-fi and fantasy have grown by almost 20 per cent in the past five years with industry analysts identifying the 'Twilight Effect' as the main reason.
The 2008 film Twilight, which was released on DVD in Britain last April, was based on the series of vampire romance novels of the same name by the American author Stephanie Myers.
It was followed by the release of the second film in the Twilight Saga, New Moon, in November, with a graphic novel due out in March.
Researchers at Mintel found that almost one in three older children and teenagers enjoy sci-fi/fantasy books, up from 18 per cent in 2005. Overall, over one in ten readers go on to read a title after seeing the film or TV version.
Other writers whose sales have increased on the back of the popularity of Twilight include Neil Gaiman, an English fantasy writer whose work includes The Sandman graphic novel. His novel Stardust was turned into a film starring Robert De Niro, Claire Daines and Michelle Pfeiffer.
the Harry Potter books got better and better, besides Order of the Phoenix. The movies were pretty good also.
the Hunger Games book was really good, the second one ehh, the third one was a huge disappointment.
and for Twilight, no comment.

edit: Harry Potter hands down!

Debating? My friend as I have mentioned to you in the past this thread is nothing more then a popularity contest. It is sad because some YA Novels deserve to be given proper credence to such as Harry Potter. I have not read the Hunger Games, but the basic premise well having historical and literary significance is unique in the fact it places teens in a role historically reserved for adult males.

Exactly why didn't the creator of the thread bother to keep in mind that we deserve a thread made for actual debating, I really don't know.
All I know is that Mockingjay has depression levels to rival the Aeneid, itself. emo

I'm working out an idea for a thread that should lead to actual discussion/debate on literature in general that I should have up later tonight or in the morning.

Alright, Kurokashi.
When its done, please let me know so I can join up on there, alright?
I also happen to be running an R.P group that I'm trying to gather actual debaters for, find out which ones happened to be able-bodied role-players, and then recruit them as needed, is that reasonable?

Thanks, I wish you the best of odds!

This thread says it all, we need role-players since we don't have enough to get started on building up a fleet, and the group's take on the Potter-world has it take place 4-5 years after the destruction of Tom Riddle/Voldemort, particularly speaking!

Fair to warn you, the Camp Half-Blood parts has spoilers for the 1st 5 main storyline volumes and the Demigod Files, so you might want to brush up on those ASAP before you get to the CHB parts, while the Potter-world and Artemis Fowl parts are just starting up, in particular.
