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 agree with another reviewer that the writing is quite mediocre. However, it is readable for grade 5 and up. I did like it in the sense that it was a nice and easy fast read. It was a good story, if not a simple story. I did enjoy the movies better than the books which is...

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Si vous aimez les histoires de fille c'est un livre pour vous. Histoire d'amour légère et un peu triste. Livre qui fait décrocher, penser à autres choses.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I bought the books when I was in high school and started reading them, good series not so sure about the movies but thats with most books turned movies. Great series though.

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...

Chapters Indigo
The Chapters stores are beautiful. It's easy to walk in and spend a long time browsing all of the different things they have in stock, from books to candles, accessories and blankets, and much more. The variety is always excellent. Chapters has a Plum Points reward membership...

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
My favorite children's book I ever read. It is such a beautiful story about life. Makes me cry every single time I read it. If you haven't read it must!

Fifty Shades of Grey
Mixed review. I read this book in a day. Easy read, not great writing. Super sexy book though so it was fun to read and nice to finally know what everyone was ranting and raving about!

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Loved the book and the movie. I highly recomend this book. It is a topic that has not been writen about often, and is really well done. If you like historical fiction you will probably like this book.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I read the book prior to finding out about the film's release. This is definitely the better version of the two, but both have the same issues. As I'm reviewing the book only, I'll stick to that. Any story will suffer greatly if you can't sympathize with its characters...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Absolutely loved this entire series, and this book definitely didn't disappoint. The author does an incredible job with world building, and her descriptions are spot on. Along the way you become very invested in the characters, and find yourself overcome with emotion when bad...

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...

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

Divergent Book Series
all the books were great , but the third one was so sad. Killing off a main character and making Tobias lose his only true love made me want to cry. It was a great series though I couldn't stop crying after it.

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
LOVE Outlander! I have always steered clear of fantasy genre, but enjoy historical fiction. This series is so well written, absorbing and exciting that I could not put it down. I devoured all 8 books and now waiting for 9 to see the Claire and Jaime Saga continue. I love the...

Archie Comics
I loved Archie comics as a kid, and I just recently discovered a 1000 page anniversary edition Archie comic book at Costco. I enjoyed it very much! The illustrations are bright and fun, and the stories are light and easy to read. It's a cute comic about a group of high school...

I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles
This book is the best travelling companion any child can have. They can spend hours looking for the objects written at the bottom of the book. They can search by themselves or invite a sibling to help. You know when your children take out this book. The car goes silent except...

Seventeen Magazine
Oh my God i loved this magazine back in my pre-teen and teens years. It was affordable and I bought it for the cute boys and of course the fashion and makeup. I'm not sure what the magazine has to offer today but it was my favorite.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
This book is hilarious and touching and will appeal to make and female readers alike as while it is about a love story it's presented from a male first person character point of view and he is very dry humoured and has quite a different way of looking at life. This book was...

The Bards best work. Interesting and easy to follow. No romantic nonsense, can't stand romance. I liked it even better the second time I read it, the older style of english takes a bit of getting used to.
