    "I started getting into this book series only after the movies started coming out and to my pleasant surprise the first book in the Twilight Saga series was just as exciting of a read as watching the movies. This is something I rarely think, which is why it was a pleasant surprise. I like the details and nuances of this thrilling love story as it is explored in the book because it reveals aspects of Bella and Edward's relationship that sometimes isn't quite as obvious in the movie. It is great read!"

    "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is considered one of the best young adult novels turned into movies. It features a lovable gang of young wizards and their adventures at Hogwarts. This is a great read for children in grades 3-8 though it is also suitable for adults. It is a humorous book that tells the tale of friendship, adventure and magic."

It's decent and I was pretty satisfied, but I just think there are much better young adult novels out there that have been adapted to the screen."

    "I agree, this is one of the nest young adult novels that turned into movies. The movie is pretty true to the book and is very engaging. It's pretty intense and thrilling. Even if you are not into fantasy and science fiction type of books, I think you will enjoy it. Another I like is "The Giver"."

I really liked the additional story that was left out of the movie. I think it is the best book of the series."
