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 enjoyed the series a lot, especially the first two books. The third one was less interesting, but the storyline did carry through pretty well. There were a few things that didn't quite add up, and there were points in the books that I disliked, but it is a very good series.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This book was absolutely amazing. I could not put it down. I finished reading this book in just one sitting. Definitely pulls at your heart strings. It was a very real, funny, sad and eye opening read. I highly recommend it.

Chapters Indigo
Love their homeware and novelty items. They are a little overpriced on everything but books...but if you can get a good sale, it's more than worth making a stop there!

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I first picked this one up at a used bookstore after watching the film and finding it quite cute. This book really is the written equivalent of a chick flick; it's simple, easy fun. Because it doesn't offer much in the way of substance, this book is best enjoyed as a light...

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
The kids loved this book but your rating choice is "Lust factor " I don't think that is appropriate for a rating choice on a children's book I would buy this book again for a gift

Fifty Shades of Grey
J'ai vraiment beaucoup aimé la série de livres.J'en suis présentement à la lecture du dernier et j'ai de la misère à m'arrêter quand je commence à le lire.Par contre , rien à voir avec le film...tout est différent.Lisez les livres au lieu de voir le film! :)

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I found this book at a second hand shop and from first glance it caught my attention. As soon as I got home, I picked up this book and was instantly absorbed into the story. From the very first sentence you want to know more about the house, family, the girls, and all the other...

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Great book, had me wondering about the ending until the very last second. With the movie out, I might just have to re-read it. I have recommended this book to a bunch of friends as well. Easy but captivating read.

Canadian Living Magazine
I used to absolutely love this magazine but in the last year or so it has become dramatically thinner. It used to have great content and recipes homemaking tips etc. but now it is just advertisements and "fashion".

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Absolutely loved this entire series, and this book definitely didn't disappoint. The author does an incredible job with world building, and her descriptions are spot on. Along the way you become very invested in the characters, and find yourself overcome with emotion when bad...

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
I'm not big on romance novels, but because this had a fantasy/sci-fi element to it, I decided to pick it up. I think this is one of the more unique and enjoyable romance novels on the market, and one which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Because of the time travelling...

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
It had a slow beginning, and I wasn't sure I was going to complete it, but I persevered and I ended up enjoying it, it was a good read after all and I have since read a couple more of her books

Archie Comics
I'm 48 and I still have my big collection of Archie comics from my youth. I spent endless summer days reading these over and over. I also have all of the digests. I'm thrilled that they are reissuing a lot of oldies online for Kindle.

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
LOVE Outlander! I have always steered clear of fantasy genre, but enjoy historical fiction. This series is so well written, absorbing and exciting that I could not put it down. I devoured all 8 books and now waiting for 9 to see the Claire and Jaime Saga continue. I love the...

Seventeen Magazine
My mom got me a subscription to Seventeen from the age of 15 to 18...and I loved it. I actually kept a huge pile of them for a couple of decades, but finally decided to throw them out. It was a wonderful read when I was feeling down or upset during school days.

I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles
This book is the best travelling companion any child can have. They can spend hours looking for the objects written at the bottom of the book. They can search by themselves or invite a sibling to help. You know when your children take out this book. The car goes silent except...

I purchased this book after seeing it on a top recommended shelf at my local bookstore and I'm so happy I did! The storyline was captivating and I was easily attracted to the quirky character. It was a really refreshing experience following a character with a personality so...
