Popular Book Series Coming To The Big Screen-Gift Sets
Holiday gift giving is the perfect time to get ready for the next year in entertainment, specifically for television shows and films adapted from novels.
Though it’s not always necessary to read the books before you see the movie, these series come in nice box sets that make the perfect gift.
1) The Fifty Shades Trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. This box set comes with all three books in the Fifty Shades series from author E.L. James. The books, widely celebrated and criticized, are currently in the process of being adapted for the big screen. The first film, Fifty Shades of Grey is currently filming and stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as the sexually adventurous couple.
2) Another popular adaptation hitting theaters is Divergent, staring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, based on the hit young adult series from author Veronica Roth.
Divergent tells the story of Tris, a girl growing up in a dystopian future world where people are assigned one role for the rest of their lives. The trilogy, composed of Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant, also comes with a booklet featuring an interview with Roth and more features that add to the world of the books.
3) Though Game of Thrones will not be new to your television in 2014, the popular book series that inspired the hit HBO show is being released in a new five-book box set including A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons, all by George R.R. Martin. One may just want the box set to be sure to always have some Game of Thrones entertainment, as the HBO series airs in short seasons only once a year.
4) Finally, it’s never to late to introduce a fan of The Hunger Games films to the original book trilogy by Suzanne Collins: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. This box set is a perfect gift for fans of the film who simply haven’t had the opportunity to read the books, or who cannot wait until November 2014 to find out what happens to Katniss (embodied by Jennifer Lawrence) after Catching Fire.
