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 these books for the first time a couple summers ago and couldn't put them down. I have read them again since and they are still just as good. The characters are likeable and relatable. I have recommended this series to so many people and will probably end up reading them...

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I generally liked this book. I actually cried (a lot) while reading it. However, I'm not sure if it'll stand the test of time or just be popular for now..

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Used to be obsessed with this book when it was popular but know I look at it and wonder what the heck I was thinking. Written terribly, total obvious outcomes, and very unlikeable characters (sparkly vampires).,

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
This is such a great book! It is perfect to bring along for vacation, or just curl up with this book and a glass of wine on a Friday night. It is an easy read, easy to put down and pick up again. It is funny and witty and very relatable. Well written and laugh out loud funny.

Chapters Indigo
I love shopping at Chapters. I could spend a whole afternoon there, they have every imageable book you could want. I also love the fact they are getting so many gift ideas. After I shop I love to go to Starbucks for Latte.

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
I absolutely love this book! I remember reading it when I was young and it is one of my favourite books to read with my sons now. I have also purchased this book for several friends with young kids and it is always a big hit. If you haven't already read this book I would highly...

Fifty Shades of Grey
This has to be the worst book that I have ever read. There was nothing interesting about the book. I didn't feel there was a real storyline to it and the sex scenes were boring. I couldn't find anything redeeming about Christian or Anastasia . Anastasia was dumbest lead female I...

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
One of my favorite books. Make sure to read this if you really enjoy reading historical! It really taught me a lot about the geaisha and maiko culture back then.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
One of the girls from work gave me this book to read, she raved about how good it was. I read a lot of books but this one was not my favourite. If I like a book I can read it in a couple of days, but this one I could not get into. It is not bad but it was not that interesting.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
This is a nice book, very emotional, beautiful story. I don't think I will read it again though. It just didn't hold my attention that much

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
THis is the last opus of the Harry Potter series and probably to my taste the best one! I've loved Harry Potter from the begginning and J.K Rowling did a superb conclusion to the saga. Even if it's sad at times, the writing is amazing on it. Beautiful! A must have!

Canadian Living Magazine
My Mom and Aunts always subscribed to Canadian Living and passed the issues around, although by the time they got to me there were usually a few recipes torn out of it! When I moved across the country, I realized I missed it and got own subscription, which I have keep up for a...

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.

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...

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
I loved this series! Hot, steamy, romantic, love story with a twist and not raunchy!! There's a lot of action and adventure with just enough love story and sex to make it all interesting! By the time I got to the 4th book I was a bit tired of the main character Clair because she...

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.

I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles
My son and I are huge fans of these books, these would literally keep us occupied for hours and it's a great alternative to watching tv. This is a very inexpensive product for any child and I haven't met anyone who didn't enjoy these books. Great gift!

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
At first, I wasn't sure if I would like this book but the more pages I read, the more I was addicted to this story! I felt in love with Don's character. I would recommand this book to all my girl friends! Perfect to change your mind and have a good time!

Game of Thrones ("A Song of Ice and Fire" series) by George R.R. Martin
I am currently reading this book series and I am obsessed! (both the novels and the tv show) When you start to read the books, you gain a bigger appreciation for the series in my opinion. I like how each chapter is organised by character. Also, GRRM has very precise detail which...
