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
A great series. Made for young adults, but still resonated in all of the generations of my family who read it. Really makes you think about the "what ifs" of the future and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm glad that this series was chosen to be translated to the big...

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
When I want a break from more serious reading, Sophie Kinsella is one of my very favourite authors. This book is easy to read, funny and very entertaining.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Definitely not the best written series out there, but great for a mind cleanse - very easy quick read and just soap opera-y enough to keep my attention. Normally I go for text books, true crime and forensic dramas, so this is truly a rare occasion that I read books such as...

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I absolutely LOVED this book! On top of being a Tear jerker, it is romantic, funny & witty (all good things you should look for in a book). I read this as part of a book club and found myself hooked! Such a great read I think this will become a classic as John Green is a great...

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
This was such a sweet story under all that fantasy about time travel. A real love story without all the graphic bedroom sex that some books insist on. I've passed this book on to my girl friend and so far she's really enjoying it. I also went to the movie and loved it.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
A beautifully written book that I have gone back to time and time again. Strong, passionately written characters and a wonderfully constructed storyline. Complex plot and character development. It's hard to put down.

Fifty Shades of Grey
I've read the whole Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. My friend borrowed her books to me and I made several attempts to read it. I finally finished skimming the books a few months ago. My motivation for skimming it was to stay "in" with my friends and be up-to-date about media...

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
I read the book after watching the movie (which I loved BTW), and I loved it as well :) It was really hard to root for Darcy (even though she was the one who was cheated on) mainly because she was very self-centered. I'm not an advocate for adultery, but in this case, Rachel...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
I love all the Harry Potter books... it one of the best stories ever told. I just finished re-reading the last 200 pages of this one because it's SO much better than the movie version ending (and I just binge watched all the movies over the past week). It's really hard not to be...

Divergent (Book Series)
The story lacks an original plot, and falls into the generic end of the dystopian bookshelf. Despite what fans may say, it has an uncanny similarity to the hunger games. It's a run of the mill book with one too many cliches.

Are You My Mother?
This is a book that I had as a child, and that I buy for all of my friends when they have babies. I'll always have fond memories of curling up on the couch and having this read to me, and then reading it to my younger brother as well. Totally a classic.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I good easy read. I loved the main character and couldn't put the book down. I just bought the sequel so I hope it's as good as the first. Would definitely recommend giving this one a go!

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
I've read this book back in 2004/2005 and it's engraved in my memory. It's very easy to read in a diary format and the writer relates to you on a very human level. I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one sitting. A very moving and poignant book that I highly...

Game of Thrones ("A Song of Ice and Fire" series) by George R.R. Martin
Absolutely amazing series - only the 2nd best to Harry Potter. The characters are amazing and the story line blows you away. George RR needs to finish this series!! I have to know what happens

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy
This is the third installment of the Bridget Jones diary. I thought it was going to be disappointment, after all how much better can Bridget Jones get after two previous books and after having found the man of her dreams? It actually gets better and is still as funny and...

The Power of One - Bryce Courteney
A stunning account of a young boy growing up in South Africa during apartheid. He lives and breathes boxing and knowledge. Such an inspirational tale of growing up, finding your strength, and the adults who shape your life.

The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
Loved this book so much. It was different then anything I have ever read before, lots of unusual ideas and twists and turns. I read it and then my daughter read it and we both really enjoyed it. If you like reading things that are different and challenge the way that you...
