Welcome to Day 3 of Book Riot’s first official YA Adaptation Showdown. This week-long event invites members of the YA community to share their thoughts on two adaptations and select one as the winner of their bracket. Details about how brackets and titles were selected can be found in the official kickoff announcement for the YA Adaptation Showdown.

Today we begin with two bracket discussions, which will be followed by one on Thursday that will crown the official YA Adaptation Showdown winner, and one on Friday which will crown the readers’ choice winner. The titles of the showdown that will be advancing in the brackets are Twilight vs To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and Persepolis vs. The Fault In Our Stars.

Let’s get started.
