2013 Possible Teen Trends

2013 1

Now that we have said goodbye to 2012, it is time to look forward to what 2013 will bring us in terms of young adult fiction. Here are 3 possible trends we are forecasting:

1. Mermaids

We have made it through the wizard craze, the vampire hype, and the zombie sensation successfully. Those trends, while still trickling in, are in the past and it is time to focus our attention on the next teen fiction fad: mermaids. Want to get ahead of this trend? Check out these amphibious creatures at your library!

2. More Teen Fiction Showing Up on the Big Screen

With the success of The Hunger Games (Wordwide Gross of $686,533,290!!!), more young adult fiction than ever before is being optioned for films in 2013. Here are just a few of the books coming out in theaters in 2013:

Beautiful Creatures (Movie Tie-In) City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments Series #1) Ender's Game (Ender Wiggin Series #1)

(clicking on a cover will send you to the DMPL catalog!)

3. More Covers Featuring Girls Wearing Glamorous Dresses

While this trend was very evident in 2012, certain series continuing into 2013 make it easy to predict this fad’s continuance. Here are a few examples to get you started:

The Selection Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin Trilogy Series #1) The Luxe (Luxe Series #1)

(choose a cover to be sent into the DMPL closet (catalog)!)
