Rowling - Harry Potter Series Named Best Young Adult Novel In Poll

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books have been named the best young adult novels in a new online poll.

The seven-book series about a boy wizard was voted as the favourite by Entertainment Weekly readers in a month-long poll.

Rowling's beloved novels beat out 63 other acclaimed books, including Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins.

Potter nabbed the top spot after it came head to head with John Green's The Fault in Our Stars in the final two.

Green's story of young cancer patients in love will be translated onto the big screen next year (14), with The Descendants star Shailene Woodley in the lead role.
