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
This was a great series, I read them as they came out and raved about the books. I am so glad they have taken off the way they have, I've re read the series numerous times! I have bought the set as gifts and will continue to do so!

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I read this book when it very first came out and I really liked it. I find there is just too much hype around it now so people go in with way too high expectations.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This has got to be the best novel ever. It's very sad though you will laugh,cry and get angry right along with Hazel and Agustus the main characters in this book. IT'S A MUST READ BUT DON'T FORGET THE TISSUES YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED THEM. I SURE DID

Fifty Shades of Grey
I thought it was a fun read. I like the characters. The writing is awful. Very childish. Not a book you would guess a women in her fifty's should be writing.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
This was such a beautiful story, that I still have kept the book several years after reading it. There are very few stories out there that have gotten me as emotionally hooked as this book did. I was about 15 when I read this book for the first time, and I believe this is a much...

Chapters Indigo
I love going to Chapters and browsing. Their home decor items are overpriced in my opinion, but you can find unique things. Unfortunately they keep closing their stores...just recently another by my work closed. I think it's because the prices are high and there are other ways...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Do yourself a favour and read these books :p This last one in the series brings things back full circle in a quite satisfying way. I wouldn't say there are NO loose ends that I was still wondering about, but overall a good read.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This book is definitely a page-turner. I do not know how someone can think so cleverly. The plot is so twisted that I found myself yelling out loud all the time "no freaking way!". It is a must read and I loved it so much that I read her other two books right afterwards...

The Complete Adventures of Curious George by Margret and H.A. Rey
Curious George has so many fun adventures that you can't help but want to join him. I read these stories with my kids and then they read them for themselves. They had a life size Curious George stuffed animal that they enjoyed playing with.

The Complete Peter Rabbit Library
A timeless classic that I enjoyed as a child and read to my children. Such beautiful illustrations that bring these lovable characters to life. A treasury of stories that never loose their appeal and are beloved by all.

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
I read this when I was 16-17 and really loved it - the teen-angst in me could really relate to a lot of what the author was feeling. I would like to go back and read this as an adult to see how I would feel - nostalgic, empathetic, sad? There is controversy around whether or...
