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 Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This book will make you ugly cry! I loved reading the book and watching the movie. I think the movie will make you cry more, but the book is always way better!

Chapters Indigo
Best bookstore in my opinion, I go here three times as much as I do Barnes and Nobel. Prices are better, selection in store isn't that huge but online you can get anything and you still earn points!

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Absolutely loved this book and the entire series. Usually I am the type of person to read before bed to relax for about an hour or so but I loved this book so much that I read it in a day - could not put it down!

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I first picked this one up at a used bookstore after watching the film and finding it quite cute. This book really is the written equivalent of a chick flick; it's simple, easy fun. Because it doesn't offer much in the way of substance, this book is best enjoyed as a light...

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
This book makes me cry EVERY time I read it. My mother bought it for my grandmother, and I have purchased it for my sons. There is something about the cycle of life and sons caring for mothers that is so poignant. This is not typical, goofy Munsch. One of my favourites.

Fifty Shades of Grey
If you enjoy really bad writing then this book is for you, haha sorry!! It was just beyond slow and took forever to really get anywhere. This isn't something that I would recommend to anyone. Sorry ladies.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I found this book at a second hand shop and from first glance it caught my attention. As soon as I got home, I picked up this book and was instantly absorbed into the story. From the very first sentence you want to know more about the house, family, the girls, and all the other...

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Great book, had me wondering about the ending until the very last second. With the movie out, I might just have to re-read it. I have recommended this book to a bunch of friends as well. Easy but captivating read.

Canadian Living Magazine
I used to absolutely love this magazine but in the last year or so it has become dramatically thinner. It used to have great content and recipes homemaking tips etc. but now it is just advertisements and "fashion".

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
A wonderful conclusion to a saga that stretched through my entire childhood and adolescence. The anticipation was built up, and J.K. definitely delivered. Tears were shed, hearts pounded and in the end, all was well.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
I'm not big on romance novels, but because this had a fantasy/sci-fi element to it, I decided to pick it up. I think this is one of the more unique and enjoyable romance novels on the market, and one which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Because of the time travelling...

Archie Comics
As a kid I could never put these down....I had such a huge collection and like a lot of people always wanted Betty & Archie to be together. I use to have a stack of these right by my bedside. Now my daughter seems to be into them. I must add though the price sure did go up...

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
It had a slow beginning, and I wasn't sure I was going to complete it, but I persevered and I ended up enjoying it, it was a good read after all and I have since read a couple more of her books

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
These books should be on the must read list for every woman! The author creates such a beautiful picture of the protagonists love and the adventures that these two share, that it is impossible not to fall in love with them and hang on every word in every book!

I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles
My son absolutely loves these books! They are seriously the best and he does them over and over and over. Perfect for car trips or a few minutes of independent play at home.

Seventeen Magazine
My mom got me a subscription to Seventeen from the age of 15 to 18...and I loved it. I actually kept a huge pile of them for a couple of decades, but finally decided to throw them out. It was a wonderful read when I was feeling down or upset during school days.

The Complete Harry Potter Series
I have read this series over and over about 5 times - cannot get enough - sometimes on the weekends I get in the mood to have a Harry Potter movie marathon and as soon as I do I re-read the series over again. This series is magical and complex and exile rating and quite a page...

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I purchased this book after seeing it on a top recommended shelf at my local bookstore and I'm so happy I did! The storyline was captivating and I was easily attracted to the quirky character. It was a really refreshing experience following a character with a personality so...
