Books for Breakfast – Throne of Glass Series

Book Reviews

Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, & Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas I'm going to include the first four books in this one post, so that I don't drag it all out. I haven't read the fifth book yet, but it is on my shelf. I'm waiting a bit till the release of the sixth book, so the wait doesn't kill me. (Waiting for Sarah…

Books for Breakfast Hag-seed

Book Reviews

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.  I'm a big fan of Atwood, although I wasn't always. My fiancé actually introduced me to her through her trilogy Oryx & Crake, which I've written about a few times on the blog. Since then, I've also read The Handmaid's Tale. (which everyone, I'm sure, has heard of) Alex has read Stone Mattress (well…

Books for Breakfast – Library of Souls

Book Reviews

I'm going to try out a new way of doing this series where I only talk about one book each post, as well as dropping the numbering system so I can actually go back and know what book I was talking about in each segment! The final book in the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children trilogy! I've had this on my shelf for what feels like forever and ever,…

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo & Death and the Afterlife by Clifford A. Pickover I had heard good things about this book, but the real selling point for me was how downright ominous the book itself looked as a hardback. I NEEDED it on my shelf! Little did I know how intensely I'd fall into the series.... The book takes place in the same world that Bardugo's other series…

Books for Breakfast #113

Book Reviews

Been wondering if I should change the titles of this series and stop counting it, once I passed 100, it started to feel a little silly. What do you think? Maybe I should call it "Books for Breakfast - Title of book(s)" instead? Ms. Marvel Vol. 3 by G. Willow Wilson & Lullaby by Check Palahniuk I haven't read a bound volume in a while, and I had nearly completely forgotten…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne & Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard It's taken me a lot longer than I'd like to admit to read this book. I heard a lot of negative  reviews about it, which was kind of off-putting, when I hear bad things about a book, I can't help but think that the book must be bad, and I go into it…

The Madd Addam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood I read Oryx and Crake quite a while ago, since it was one of Alex's favorite books. At the time he also had never read the entire trilogy either, only the first book, so I too, only read the first book. Recently, he decided that it was finally time and read the second and third book, bemoaning that he didn't re-read the first…

Horror is one of my favorite genres all around. I love horror manga, I love horror books, I love ghost stories by camp fires, I love horror movies, I love haunted houses, and I love people telling me creepy true stories about their own encounters. Basically, I love all things haunted and creepy. So I'm going to talk about my top 10 horror books (in no particular order) to celebrate…

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own.  This is a perfect read for October! When I saw the cover on Blogging for Books, it caught my eye and looked like something that would put me on edge. While it isn't outright horror, it is still scary. The story follows a girl named Elka as she runs…

Changeless and Blameless by Gail Carriger Since these are both part of a series, Parasol Protectorate, I thought I'd review them together! I borrowed the first book from a co-worker back at Barnes & Noble, who suggested that I might like the series. It's steam-punk, Victorian London, and our independent, brass, and very Italian heroine needs no saving, she can do that by herself, thank you very much! The second…
