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
Loved this series, except maybe the last book, it left me with the impression that the author was rushed to finish it and there's missing a little something. Still a very good distraction and entertainment.

Chapters Indigo
I love visiting this store. Its great with my family and when I'm alone. I usually buy gifts here and I love that you can collect points. The selection of books is amazing. I don't really shop anywhere else. I also love that I can just buy online especially if a book isn't...

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I read this book in a few days. John Green really knows how to write a good book. I think this book has the chance of becoming a classic and it's a good read.

Toujours un super livre à avoir dans sa collection pour les enfants, ils adorent cette histoire. Le côté répétitif est comme une petite chanson pour eux. Les illustrations sont simples et colorées. on adore

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...

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
This is a beautiful book. I can't even remember if I read the book first or saw the movie. There is SO much more to the book than in the movie. The story takes you into a whole new world and era, showing you the life of a Geisha and the hardships they had to deal with. I really...

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Loved all the twists in this story. It's such a page turner. Definitely one I would read again. Weekend getaway/summer read. Way better than the movie and definitely worth the price

Archie Comics
Archie comics were (and still are) the best. I remember being a kid in elementary/middle school and kids would be reading these during reading period and exchanging them between each other.

Canadian Living Magazine
I really enjoy the recipes in this magazine - especially the Holiday baking issues. I always find tips and tricks in the magazine that I use over and over again.

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.

Divergent Book Series
I ADORED this series. This was one of my favourite series to read, and I could not put the books down after i picked them up. Each chapter has you hooked on something new, and theres always something keeping you in suspense throughout. I love it! Definitely a page turner...

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

Outlander Book Series by Diana Gabaldon
I loved this series so much. It was such a fun,exciting and unique read. So different then the average book. I loved the historical facts all tangled up in an amazing story. I have to be honest the last couple books of the series have not been as exciting as the first 4. I...

I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles
I used to love these I spy books as a child! I remember me and my mom looking for the items listed. Now that I have kids of my own we borrow them from the library and I play with them! They're wonderful books!

The Complete Harry Potter Series
It took me quite a while to get reading this series, but once I did I honestly couldn't put them down! I was practically kicking myself for not reading them sooner. There's never a dull moment in this series and that's something you always hope for when reading a book!

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I absolutely loved this book I sat down and read it within 2 days. The main character is very intelligent and the writing of the book reflects it. It is a wonderful romantic story without being stuffy and obviously a romance novel. I am about to tear into the sequel and I cannot...

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.
