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 loved reading this series. I read through it so fast and enjoyed every minute. When I was done reading all three books I was sad it was over. Really great story.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I really enjoyed this story! I read it within a few days because I just couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a love story - it doesn't matter that it's about teenagers! I think that part actually makes it more relatable for a younger audience.

I love Indigo. There so much and many different things. Books that you are looking for and books you didn't Know you were looking for. Plus there is a huge variety of many different things: beauty, home decor, baby toys, toys. So many things. Website is so easy to navigate as...

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
The twilight series was just ok to me. It wasn't all that fantastic to me. I was glad I borrowed the books and didn't buy them because I would never read them again.

Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
This book is a huge part of my life and is everything to me. My mom read would read to me and it was her favourite too. When she got sick with cancer and was dying I would read the to her to calm her down. Like I said this book means everything to me

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...

Fifty Shades of Grey
I wasn't a HUGE fan of the movies, I find the actors to be awkward and didn't portray the characters as much as I would have liked but the book was on point, the level of description in all of the stuff going on was incredible i couldnt put it down

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I have always had an interest in historical fiction but this book sat on my to be read list for awhile. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago and read it in a couple of days. The main character has a way of describing her story that keeps me wanting to read more. I would...

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I loved this book! The story has so many twists and turns, making it hard to put down. I would definitely recommend reading the book even if you have seen the movie because the book is even better than the movie - though it was one of the better on screen interpretations I have...

Canadian Living Magazine
This magazine is losing its lust factor for me personally. I find it has become less about the things I really enjoyed, like recipes, etc and much more about ads unfortunately. It used to be a really fab magazine but in the past year it was went to drab :(

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
You can't go wrong with any of the Harry Potter books in my opinion, but read them in order! Harry Potter is such a huge part of my life, I was just obsessed with the books, and still am. The last two made me cry so hard.

Archie Comics
Archie comics are the shit, I still have mine from when I was a kid. They can be found at pawn shops and stuff now for a few dollars, but to have them kicking around from the early 70's is cool as 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...

Divergent Book Series
I absolutely love this book! The author brilliantly portrays the characters in an effective manner, with an alluring plot that sucks you in from the beginning. The entire series is excellently written, with an ending that leaves you wanting more.

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 boys and I love these books! Difficulty ranges from easy, medium to medium-hard, and we have purchased several of them. Great seek and find (a lot less difficult than Where's Waldo) and it has a great variety, we very much enjoy the pictures!

The Complete Harry Potter Series
This is a great book series, a must read for all kids in my opinion!! I read it when it first came out, and have re-read it again many times. It is a great way to get kids into reading, and adults too.

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 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...
