TOP 5 FRIDAY: Books to Films!

Posted by Jazz on Friday November 20th, 2015

I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this top 5. There are SO MANY excellent movie adaptations of excellent books. With this in mind, I’ve tried to stay away from the obvious choices (read: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Twilight, Narnia, Divergent …) but that is a VERY difficult task …

TOP 5 FRIDAY: First Lines

Posted by Jazz on Friday August 28th, 2015

This week's top 5 is written by Cara Waudby-Tolley, who spent last week with us completing work experience! 

Beginning a good book is like taking a bite from something delicious, you just know that you’ll have to control yourself from gobbling it all down quickly and savour the greatness. For me, the first line of a book encapsulates the essence of what is yet to come, a thrilling and exciting journey. Here are five of my faves. (more…)

IT'S FINALLY HERE!

Posted by Jazz on Tuesday October 14th, 2014

After months and months of waiting, the MAZE RUNNER movie finally hit the big screen on Friday! Directed by Wes Ball, the film adaptation features a whole bunch of talented stars - including Will Poulter, We're the Millers actor and winner of the 2014 BAFTA Rising Star Award, Skins actress Kaya Scodelario, Game of Thrones and Love Actually actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and lead actor Dylan O'Brien, best known for Teen Wolf.

And the reviews have started pouring in! Check out a couple of our faves ...

'While we're always a bit dubious when our fave books are made into movies, The Maze Runner nails it and sticks a cherry on top for good measure. Dylan's amazing in the lead role ... and we were literally on the edge of our seat the entire time.' SUGARSCAPE

'... as someone who hasn't read any of the books but was gripped from the get-go, it feels like another hit.' THE TELEGRAPH

If you loved the film and haven't yet read the books - what are you waiting for? You can order a copy of our limited edition slipcased hardback here - and be sure to tweet us at @chickenhsebooks to let us know what you think!

Scorch Trials

The pulse-pounding sequel to The Maze Runner and now a major motion picture!

Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to.

Now, the earth is a wasteland. Government and order have disintegrated and Cranks – people driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare – roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim …... and meal.

Thomas can only wonder – does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?
