HEADS UP! there would be lots of links and (re)direction involved on this post I added some (hopefully) helpful links try to click them for more info. and please do bear with me. Thanks for your patience and cooperation ^_^
I stumbled upon this well written article here.It has lots of insights from different literary editors about this genre and 10 reasons for lit. rejection.Moving on...I also found a book that's very much fitting on this category that I actually read a-ha!
The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
such a wonderful heart warming story and the movie adaptation was brilliant!though I find Emma's american accent weird yet ok she did a good job being Sam .For more of my movie review exp. (click here.)
I'd also like to share with you some of my to be read pile (TBR) on this genre since this books are the ones I would most likely recommend/ask & tell a friend about. I do admit that I haven't read a lot from this genre so I'll definitely change that and try to get into them soon enough pwahaha!
Some of the Top bestsellers:
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (ever so legendary! one of the must read books)
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (this sounds interestingly epic so I got it)
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (I love the movie so why not read the book as well? ;))
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (perhaps the first circus novel I'll read)
Water for Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen (lots of good reviews and crying moms that read/seen the film,moms knows best haha! )
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein (too cute to pass X3)
Cloud Atlas: A Novel by David Mitchell (The movie's kinda confusing at first but the concept's great reading this might clear some things up)
Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (the play and movie adaptation never fails to make me cry T_T)
Now for THE BOOK I'm so freakin excited about!
The Ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman
I love this guy! he's definitely a LEGEND I mean all his stories are so fun to read and weird yet amazingly awesome you should check them all out and I found some free stuff like How to talk to Girls At Parties by Neil Gaiman.
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan, I've been hearing a lot of good things about it from friends so I'm greatly intrigued.
