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 read the whole series before seeing the movies and I'm glad that I did. The story is unique, the characters are interesting and the action is intense. I enjoyed these so much, I read the entire series in 4 days. Definitely recommend it.

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.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I bought this book long before the it became popular and before the movies came out. I was instantly a fan, the characters are great and the story keeps you engaged the whole time. It's a great love story with the twist of Edward being a vampire. It's too bad they made movies...

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is a fanatic young adult book. I cried the whole time I read the book and I laughed along too. I finished the book in one sitting - a great escape.

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...

Fifty Shades of Grey
I found these books in need of a good editor. The sexual nature of this book didn't bother me but the weakness in the female lead character was sad.

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...

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
It's a brilliantly crafted book. The writing is harsh and clear and analytical. I think the first part of the book was my favourite because it really dissects a relationship and how things can go wrong and crumble. The observations are really good. There are a couple of...

Diane Chamberlain, The Silent Sister
My first read from this author and earns an easy 5 star rating. I'm thrilled that she's written others which I will definitely start a list to go through.

A Single Breath by Lucy Clarke
Lucy Clarke's second book, A Single Breath, is a MUST READ! It is an incredible story that gripped me so emotionally, just as her first, Swimming at Night (Sea Sisters in some countries) did. She is an incredible writer and I can't wait for book #3!

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
When I was initially given one of these books I was intimidated by the size of the book its huge. But once I started ready in the first novel and couldn't stop myself I had to read the entire series. These books are amazing and you just get swept away in the amazing story. Just...

Assassin's Creed Black Flag
This is the sixth book in the Assassin's Creed novel series. It introduces the reader to Edward Kenway, and follows his life story, as he becomes a privateer, then a pirate. It is a must read in the series as it ties tighter with the previous book, and actually happened before...

The Silent Sister, Diane Chamberlain
Here is a 5 star book that was hard to out down. This is the first book I've read and I was happy to see she had many more I can read.

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...
