Books for Breakfast #88

Invincible Compendiums + Comics by Robert Kirkman & Carry On by Rainbow Rowell First off, I want to start this review by saying: I never really read superhero comics before. When I was little, I liked Superman and Batman, but mainly because of stuff on TV, and the fact that my dad always told me a Batman & Robin story before bed, ones that he'd make up about them, and…

This breakfast I read: Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut  & The Bat by Jo Nesbo Slaughterhouse 5 was one of those books I feel like I should have read in high school, but didn't. I feel like it's a classic anti-war book. I was a little shocked because my dad hadn't even heard of it, but my mom had to read it in school. Anyways. It's a bit out of…

This time I had the immense pleasure of reading: Squirell seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris  & 1984 by George Orwell  I've really come to enjoy reading David Sedaris's books! They are always full of a dark sort of humor or are just strange and silly all together. This one in particular has all three elements. Think of it as a children's book for adults, almost. It has goofy illustrations at…

I'm going to interrupt the scheduled Books for Breakfast with a special read I just enjoyed! Today on the reading list is: Women in Bed by Jessica Keener Now, I love discovering new authors, especially authors that have short story collections because I ADORE short stories! Especially the ones that pull you in and have beautiful wording in them. Once again, I went through the struggles of reading on my…

Today for breakfast I devoured two short books: M+O = 4Evr by Tonya Cherie Hegamin & Anthem by Ayn Rand   I wasn't expecting much from this book, since I bought it on a whim from Ollie's bargain outlet while on vacation. I grabbed it since it was short and the back seemed interesting. It turned out to be a pretty decent story too, considering how short it was! It covers…

For breakfast this time I've enjoyed: A Beautiful Mind - Sylvia Nasar (A re-read) Ajax Penumbra - Robin Sloan I read the book way back in junior year of high school, and then saw the movie sometime after that. I don't really remember much of the movie and the book hadn't really stuck with me either, so I decided to re-read it recently as I'm building a to-read list for my…

For a wonderful breakfast, this time I read: Brain on Fire by Susannah Calahan  & Looking for Alaska by John Green There was something intensely fascinating yet at the same time completely horrifying about this story. It is an autobiography of a girl, seemingly healthy, who completely looses herself for a month to a horrific disease that is described as her brain being on fire. Scary, right? It's interesting from…

I had a fun breakfast this month with the reads: Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen & Hollow City by Ransom Riggs I watched Girl, Interrupted ages ago on Netflix. It was basically background while I was doing something else. Needless to say, I don't recall much about the movie in terms of details. I picked up the book on a whim, not even knowing it was a book! Clearly, I…

A tasty breakfast of the following reads: A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin & Police by Jo Nesbo I'm slowly making my way through this series, because I know I'm going to have to wait years until book 6 comes out...but I'm already done with book 4! What am I going to do? (Watch the show! Everyone yells at me) Yes, yes, I'll probably start watching the show,…

This breakfast is accidentally 3 course! Let's see what we had to snack on: The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom Guys Can Be Cat Ladies Too by Michael Showalter The Fault in Our Stars by John Green First, I want to preface this by saying that Mitch Albom writes a lot about death, faith, heaven, human nature, forgiveness, and other such themes. To go along with that,…
