We rank the YA Book-to-Movie Adaptations of 2018

7) MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE

Based on The Death Cure by James Dashner

Our thoughts:

  • A lot of action, a lot of heart. Dylan O’Brien was fantastic. I haven’t read the novels, but I did feel conflicted by the ending and the choices the man character made. – Miranda @HNewsSource
  • After going a little sideways in The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure righted the story as best as it could and recovered decently enough. I especially liked how the relationship concluded between Thomas and Teresa. – Natasha, The Fandom
  • I really enjoyed watching The Death Cure. It’s almost completely different from the book, but I like where they went with the movie. Dylan O’Brien was excellent as always and the the action sequences were spectacular. – Leslie, The Fandom

6) READY PLAYER ONE

Based on Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Our thoughts:

  • Such a sad adaptation of such a great book. You knew while reading it the the copyright issues were going to doom this movie before they even shot the first frame. – Tony C @tonywriteswords
  • Though it strayed far from the book and didn’t take itself too seriously, the masterful visuals, kick-ass OASIS portrayals, and ingenuity at times (The Shining scene for example) made this a fun, pulse-pounding joyride for fans of the book and beyond. – Adam, The Fandom
  • The special effects were stunning and I loved how they brought the Oasis to life. I only wish there were more pop culture references packed in! – Leslie, The Fandom
