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.

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
Sophia Kinsella and her novels and famous protagonists will never go out of style. I started reading this randomly got it from a friend, then went on to buy the entire series up to when she has a baby! I've been hooked every since. Perfect amount of seriousness, cattiness, and...

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I got hooked from the first page. It's the kind of book that draws you into it's world and you lose yourself completely in the storyline. A very descriptive style that makes you anxious to find out more. You can't help but be drawn to the ever romantic Edward who has fallen...

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
What an emotional journey! I felt so sad reading the hardships that this woman endured. She is such a survivor and I can't imagine how she was able to survive both mentally and physically. It was tragic and the triumph of the human spirit.

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...

Good as Gold by Louise Patten
Good as Gold was an intriguing mystery from start to finish. I enjoy reading anything about the Titanic and the new information I obtained from this book was fascinating. Family dynamics are a unique beast in this book as danger lurks around every corner and you don’t know...
