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 really found this book disturbing! I think people read it and forget that we are talking about a bunch of children.some of them only 12 who are putting their lives in danger for the sake of food and family. Isn't it funny how we will read about it in a book for amusement but...

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I enjoyed the first book even thought it was corny - but the last 3 (especially the 4th) just highlight the poor writing skills.

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

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...

Fifty Shades of Grey
The books is pretty terrible, I mean I still read it....but it's drivel. Also, it does represent very abusive relationships....not worth the time.

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.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
This whole series is just fantastic - you laugh, you cry, you cheer, you cringe. J.K. Rowling is the master of story telling. The characters are well developed and make you fall in love/hate with them. The story line is compelling and amazing! Best series of your life!

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Out of all the books I've read so far this year, this is one of my favorites. It's realistic. John Green has the ability to bring each reader into the novel, almost as if you are friends with the characters or watching this occur from some stand point not far away. He touches on...

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
Definately a complelling story. Written in a diary form - it brings you through the highs and the lows of addiction. Easy read & quite fantastic.

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

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...

Thicker Than Water - Danae Ayusso
Danae Ayusso is an amazing writer. This is the first time I have had the privilege of reading something that she has written, and I can honestly say that it will NOT be the last time, I am hooked and look forward to reading many more of her publications. This novel starts off...

Fire Under the Snow- Palden Gyatso
This book left me speechless and incredibly enlightening. A monk's persecution that goes beyond what a human being should ever have to endure. I will never forget his story. One of the most important book I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Just read it. Compassion at its...

New Lives: Nurses Stories about Caring for Babies
Such an impressive collection of stories. I have a huge interest in nursing, and this really spoke to me. Some of the true stories will stay with me forever. Very personal and emotional writing. An excellent compilation of vulnerably, caring, and suffering.

In a Sunburned Country- Bill Bryson
Oh man. Yet another ridiculously funny book by Bill. I've never been to Australia, but my gosh, he makes his crazy trip so enjoyable to read along with. Priceless dry wit and such memorable characters- it's a treat to read. A must read for anyone who loves Bill, travel, humour...

Our Family Tree
This was given to me as a Christmas gift- what a lovely thought for someone who loves family history and trees. It is a fill in book, beautifully illustrated with sections for special memories, recipes, notes, etc. A well thought out book to chronicle a loving family history to...
