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 have to admit, I'm a sucker for romantic novels and don't often read books, yet alone series like the Hunger Games. However, I love this trilogy so much! I was so into the book and couldn't put it down for days. I think my favourite book has to be the second one as I hadn't...

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.

I could not put this book down. What a great read! I will definitely read it again in the future.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I read this ages ago, therefore I do not remember the story fully, but I do remember reading this book and really enjoying it. However I was eleven when I read that book, and I'm not sure that was such a good decision on my part due to the fact that some of the content really...

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.

Fifty Shades of Grey
I liked it overall. Not a book to read outside of your home and it took a little while to get into but then it had me hooked.

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...

Divergent (Book Series)
At first I wasn't really into it but after reading the books they are so much better than the movie.

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.

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...

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
I fell in love with this book series about ten years ago..The initial book seems a bit dry at first as the author has so many characters throughout her books, but once you get into them you can't get back out! I went from reading this series to scouring the book stores for her...

Not My Father's Son, A Memoir by Alan Cumming
As a long-time Alan Cumming fan, I was very excited about his new book! I am pleased to say that it lived up to my expectations and was as witty and whimsical as the delightful actor himself, despite the dark subject matter. Cumming shows great strength in sharing his family's...

Assassin's Creed Forsaken
This is the fifth book in the Assassin's Creed novel series. It follows Haytham Kenway's life. It is very well writen and it draws you in. Definitely a good read if you're a fan of the games.

Assassin's Creed Revelations
This is the fourth book in the Assassin's Creed novel series. It finishes the story of Ezio and closes things off so well, it leaves you wanting more. This whole series draws you in, so you can't put the books down.

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

Assassin's Creed The Secret Crusade
This is the third book in the Assassins Creed novel series. This book is the story of Altair. It goes very much into detail about his life, early and late in his life. If you are a fan of the game, you will love the book.
