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
absolutely a joy to read. So well-written, and such a powerful message. I've read them all at least 3 times each, and I still love them. If you loved Harry Potter, you'll love the Hunger Games.

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I read the first book then had to read the entire series. This is a great read if your looking for something light and kind of trashy. Its pure fantasy and a great series to read at the beach!

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Twilight was a good enough book to escape daily life worries but the book didn't fell like it was worth reading even a sentence over again. Within the series, Twilight was the worst one to me. I get that background information is needed for the next books but it was so much that...

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
This was such a sweet story under all that fantasy about time travel. A real love story without all the graphic bedroom sex that some books insist on. I've passed this book on to my girl friend and so far she's really enjoying it. I also went to the movie and loved it.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
A beautiful novel that was eye opening and intriguing. This is an amazingly written book - a must read for everyone!

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
I read the book after watching the movie (which I loved BTW), and I loved it as well :) It was really hard to root for Darcy (even though she was the one who was cheated on) mainly because she was very self-centered. I'm not an advocate for adultery, but in this case, Rachel...

Love the whole series, and I have made a habit of re-reading them at at least once a year.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
One of my favourite books I've ever read. Couldn't tear myself away from the book. All the hype really was backed up as soon as I read the book.

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
It's a classic. I think I read it about 25 years ago... and I never forgot it. It doesn't matter if you believe it to be fiction or auto-biographical, it resonates through you and is a wake-up call. Poignant, sad and hopeful. It's amazing how this book is as interesting now as...

Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Stolen by Lucy Christopher was one of the best books I've ever read. The book is written in first perspective and I would usually stare clear of a first person POV but this one had captured me. This book is about a girl named Gemma and her captor Ty. Gemma was kidnapped at an...

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
I loved the mystery and action and suspense of this book! It keeps you guessing til the very end. I'm not usually into books that have a lot of history in them, but this one was very interesting and informative. I also loved the movie :)

Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
This short story became an acclaimed film directed by Ang Lee. I have seen the film many times. This is the original basis. It's an amazing story. This is written by Annie Proulx who is a Pulitzer Prize Winner. The film is a masterpiece thanks to her writing.

Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou
This book is the most recent part of the Maya Angelou autobiography series. Recently, Ms. Angelou died earlier this year. This is an appropriate tribute to her and to her loving relationship with her own mother. A glimpse into this life of this extraordinary author. A must...
