Perhaps one of the main motivations is to target books that already have a fairly large fan base in order to make a larger profit. I could certainly see this being the case with novels like Twilight, City of Bones, and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo based on how popular these books have become. Other, less known books, however, have also been adapted into graphic novels, like Wicked Lovely. Although I'm sure the Wicked Lovely series is popular within it's own circle of fans, it by no means has the amount of followers as other YA books like Twilight.
What do you guys think about this growing trend of turning works of fiction into graphic novels? Have you read any of these adaptations? Is there a particular book you would be interested in reading as a graphic novel?
