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 picked these up for free in my condo building's library after watching the first two movies. I wasn't expecting much, as I didn't love the first movie, and thought the second was fine, but not mind-blowing. To my surprise, I couldn't put these books down. They made me like...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
I am a 28 year old female and I will admit, the Harry Potter series is still one of my favourites. The writing isn't mind-blowing, but the overall story and characters are so captivating. I didn't want to put it down. This book in particular is one of the best of the series. By...

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.

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...
