    based upon the trilogy (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay) by Suzanne Collins earned a rating of 14 + age group. The literary version relating the journey of Katniss Everdeen attempting to free Panem from a dictator is deemed suitable for a younger audience. The use of poetic license by visual media to increase the viewer appeal may contribute to the variance in age appropriateness. The Twilight series (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn) by Stephenie Meyer is a good example of a series where the movies and books match up, but the entire series altogether does not match up. The first three books and movies (Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse) were put in the 13+ age groups. Breaking Dawn and its movie counterparts (Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Breaking Dawn Part 2) were put in the 14+ age groups. Passage of time and maturity is a reasonable explanation for the level of change in the classification of these works. Ten years after the first Twilight book was published, Stephenie Meyer released another version of Twilight titled, Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. That story earned the rating 13+ age group. The descriptive nature of this literature, both in detail and content could be contributing factors in their rating category. To further illustrate the use of providing guidance in suitable reading material we have the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. These books follow the different quests that Percy Jackson, son of…

    romantically inclined; he dedicates his life in protecting Bella from various harm, whether it be from other vampires, or even humans. In fact, Meyer makes it hard to call Edward a villain or monster because he’s constantly doing good. Backstein mentions the scene in Twilight where the “humans are the men who try to rape Bella one evening in town” (215) and Edward saves Bella after reading their violent thoughts. We are supposed to be afraid of vampires…

    work together and at most will work in a small group for a short time therefore it is illogical for every American vampire to band together for an extended period of time. The topic of vampire feeding also raises other issues. Vampires have extraordinary stamina and strength compared to human. Additionally, vampires have animal like senses of both sight and smell thus all these factors together making hunting trivial for them. With this established it can be concluded that vampires have no need…

    conservative perspective, they contribute to other ideas about beauty standards and self-objectification. While these books address topics like sex and drugs, they never claim to have a moral standpoint, assuming that the young reader will apply their own perspective (501). This can be concerning as young girls are developing an identity during this stage in their life and may not be able to make this connection (497). The discussion in this article will add to my argument about the…
