Books Reviews

Curling up with a good book is a favourite year-round pursuit: in front of a blazing fire in January, in the park under a warm May sun, in a hammock lake-side in July or with coffee on the back porch overlooking brilliant fall foliage.

ChickAdvisor members love light reads like the wildly popular Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella or the more introspective romances of Emily GiffinHe's Not That Into You gives us food for thought, and Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series is a guilty little pleasure.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I love these books. Unlike some of the other teen books these days the female is strong and independent and smart. Not only did I like it but my husband liked it and some men in my office so it's not just for girls. :)

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I really liked this book - I read all of the series in a short amount of time; because they were light and easy to read. The series is funny and easy to relate to.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
I finally finished reading this. I don`t know why I waited so long to read it since so many of my friends recommended it to me. It`s a good thing though that I read this before I saw the movie because I was not impressed at all with the film. The book really pulls you in right...

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
I really liked this book - it was light and easy to get through The story might not have always gone the way you thought it would - and there were some surprises. I have read the series that follows the characters and they are a good read.

Fifty Shades of Grey
I read this series in 2 weeks. At first I couldn't decide if there was a story or just plain smut. BUT I knew there had to be more. I am so glad I finished the series to find out the why. I actually loved it!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
An epic conclusion to the Harry Potter series. I practically grew up with Harry Potter - I began reading the books in my early teens and devoured each book as they came out. As such, the anticipation - and expectations - were high, and thankfully, J.K. Rowling delivered. Like...

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
The first time I read this book I found the first 50-60 pages kind of dragged but once I got into the meat of the story I was so happy I stuck it out. This is a wonderful novel with a story unlike any I have read before. Yann Martel does a great job of describing the beauty in a...

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Hooked! Once I picked this up, I couldn't put it down. I think I called in sick just to keep reading it... I loved the intrigue of it, the pace of it. the suppositions, the blending of history and art and religion which are inextricably linked in a symbiotic dance, and even the...

dan brown inferno
I love this type of book - fast paced, thought-provoking, intriguingly laced with fact and set in an impossibly beautiful locale. If you've been to Florence, you can picture the dash across the old city and get lost in the intrigue of Dante. Robert Langdon is really off-kilter...

The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
I loved this book. Jeannette Walls can write a good story. This book made me want to read more from her and I have bought two more books by her and loved them too. She is such a good writer and story teller!
