Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone/Sorcerer's Stone was released almost (give or take a month and a couple of days) fifteen years ago. Holy crap.

Uuh, on topic, I really hope that the YA trend doesn't die off soon--it's what I write, too. Something I've wondered, though, is that...and I'm going to show my industry naivety here, I'm sure...but, paranormal romance has been at saturation point for essentially as long as I've been on this site, and it seems like for a good couple of years before that, too, going from the older threads that I read for research. Now we're moving on to dystopian becoming saturated, and we're still not seeing much of an improvement in paranormal romance, it seems like? So...how long, exactly, do we think it would take a saturated genre of YA to...desaturate? Or is that rather like asking how long's a piece of string?
