    1. I LOVE this cover Sadly, though, that s where my love affair with this book ends.You know when you discover a book that just calls to you With the title and the description and the total lack of hype No expectations or demands just the possibility of finding a little hidden gem with an extremely pretty cover That was this book for me I knew nothing except the sweet little promises it made A coming of age debut evokes the bittersweet joys and pangs of finding independence in one unforgettable sum [...]

    2. BREAKFAST SERVED ANYTIME is one of those books that makes me want to be a better writer The characters are so well drawn, and Sarah Combs s writing is absolutely gorgeous I m sad I have to pass it along on an ARC tour because I want to reread it before it comes out Absolutely recommended

    3. This book had the ONE thing that I hate that oh so clever 16 year old AV Drama Club witty banter full of 19th century literary references, of course that you would expect from a modern coming of age book written by an adult But ya know what I DON T CARE Ya know why Because this book was beautiful Gloria, Calvin, Chloe, and Mason were beautiful Jessica and Sonya were beautiful Kentucky was beautiful It totally captured that moment when you are young and you start to really see the world for the f [...]

    4. Sarah is a talented writer her prose is lovely Her characters are fleshed out and really interesting While the story itself is quieter than most contemporaries or YA books, I really liked how slice of life it felt It didn t drag at all and I finished easily and with a smile after one sitting.

    5. What a beautiful, special book full of well crafted sentences you ll read over again just to make sure they really happened This book does not have a huge hook or shocking twist but it is a book where everything is happening Set in a Geek Camp for gifted Kentucky teenagers, we follow characters as they face their childhood demons, ponder their futures, and develop relationships with one another that are achingly real and life changing I cried at the end Every character in this book even minor on [...]

    6. I guess what I m trying to say is that sometimes you can love a book not so much because of what it s about or what happens in it, but because it belongs to a certain time or person in your life like you ll always remember where you were when you read it for the first time, or who gave it to you, or what season it was, or who you were before you read it and how you were different when it was over Combschokengkoma

      titikchokeng 246 This book will always hold a special place in my heart because t [...]

    7. It s abundantly clear that this is a debut novel It s filled with good ideas and plot threads, none of which particularly go together and all of which get left underdeveloped much like the characters themselves Gloria is an unlikeable protagonist judgmental and hypocritical in most of her thoughts and actions, as well as lacking any connection to the rest of the world She s also determinedly wishy washy She hates kids, but after a few minutes with one, she likes them She hates dogs, but after a [...]

    8. I stopped reading around the 20% mark.Don t bother, Nomes, really Sometimes I do wonder what publishers are thinking, when they decide to acquire a manuscript that finally results in a book like Breakfast Served Anytime Four certified brainiac kids visiting a dinner and ordering breakfast, but only one of them has thought of bringing a wallet Brainy, I am not so young any that you would catch me eating fudgecicles heroine planning to not accept a perfectly good university scholarship, because sh [...]

    9. Beautifully written contemporary about the sweet, ephemeral, but also lasting moments that come with a summer camp experience In this case it s a geek camp at a university, so the cast of characters are smart, smarter, and smartest, but I loved the way Sarah Combs wove these seemingly disparate kinds of kids into a cohesive unit It s a gorgeous look at friendship in all its facets, as well as that moment when you realize you re crushing pretty hard The bonus is lots and lots of highlight worthy [...]

    10. Geek Camp That was all it took to make me want to read Breakfast Served Anytime I also liked the idea of this mysterious professor Sadly, I was just bored instead of entertained Gloria heads off to this summer education program, is introduced to people different from her, then goes home That s it There s no plot, and no real character growth She just goes away, does stuff, and comes home It also didn t help that Gloria annoyed me.I m pretty sure the only things in the entire world that Gloria li [...]

    11. One star might seem a little harsh, maybe it is, the fact is, by the end I was annoyed on so many levels I couldn t give it anything but 1 star 1 Gloria B R A T Gloria is horrendous She s SO annoying She s judgmental and thinks she s better than everyone else She also likes to think she s super deep and smart, but she says and does the dumbest things I suppose that could be typical of teenagers I m sure when I was 17 I thought I was heaps smarter than I actually was Still, I can t get behind a b [...]

    12. It s too hard to explain I can t say why I love the book I just do You don t pick the books you fall in love with It just happens, and when it happens, you know Who s to say where love comes from Oh my gosh Oh my GOSH I am c r y I n gI was not expecting this book to be that beautiful I thought it d be so so Another weird and annoyingly inappropriate contemporary read.but instead I am in love I want to read this story over and over I need to buy it and drown again in it s words.I mean it s not fo [...]

    13. I got off to a rough start with this book, because the main character who is obviously the author tells you that her favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird, and I don t think I ve ever liked anyone whose favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird You don t have to hate it but favorite Seriously It s like asking for vanilla ice cream, hold the vanilla But I persevered because this book is about geeky kids at geek camp and some of the happiest times of my life were as a geeky kid at geek camp and it s [...]

    14. I loved the premise of this book and it involved some interesting characters, including a boxer puppy It involves a summer of growth and change for a group of talented young people who attend a month long camp at state college The novel centers around one teen aged girl and three new friends who end up in the same strand of the program It includes some of the teen angsty stuff that I have grown a bit tired of Really how can you fall in love hate love with someone through the window of your dorm [...]

    15. So many YA books seem to be about dating relationships, and I thought this one would be of the same, but I picked it up at ALA because I was intrigued by the cover I was actually pleasantly surprised to realize the book is about relationships, but not just ones with a significant other It s about friendship, family, and yes loveking the transition to life after high school, paying attention to the small moments that make up our best memories, identity, relationship to place in this case, Kentuc [...]

    16. I love a good coming of age story, but Breakfast Served Anytime definitely left me wanting I found myself reading faster and faster just to finish it While technically sound, the story was justring Nothing happens Some smart kids go to geek camp, but nothing happens to them They don t even seem to learn anything or grow in any way The dialogue between characters feels very forced very much like what adults think teens sound like I work with teens, and they do not talk like the teens in this book [...]

    17. Abandoned Did not want to submit myself to any of Gloria s lecture like monologues of rapid fire judgements of disdain and her ongoing 24 7 commentary of pretty much the entire world around her in an extremely melodramatic fashion.I get that this could appeal to the middle school audience because it certainly did not to me It had that over dramatic behaviour and dialogue that s used to portray the lesson of not judging a book by its cover I get it Middle schoolers exaggerate and are temperament [...]

    18. DNF at 75%Breakfast Served Anytime allured me with it s beautiful cover But man I was so disappointed I m blaming Gloria I think the author wants Gloria to come out as poetic because of her way of telling the story but that s not what I got at all Gloria rambles She wants to talk about everything and she makes simple things complicated So I thought, hmmm okay, the protagonist is annoying me but maybe I ll get something from the plot.I was bored I was dozing off the whole time I tried, really tri [...]

    19. I loved this book if you ask me why I loved it, I really don t have an answer But it have me the sweet butterflies in the stomach feelings of the first crush that lumpy feelings in the throat of my last day at school if made me sad happy the aching in the heart feelings when you see rain from your window and suddenly remember a school day with friends which had a similar weather.

    20. This book is at once both poetic and substantial The words weave an eloquent, elegant tale that makes you laugh and cry along with Gloria It s comprised of all the wonderful moments that make up childhood, youth, and life in general It s made up of the things that you look back on the memories of a lifetime It s introspective, innocent, and hopeful after discovering the vast new world, despite starting off jaded and SO Over It I ve been to my own version of a Canadian Geek Camp, so I found this [...]

    21. for me, this was one of those books you randomly get when you re browsing in a bookstore and can t find anything else but you don t want to leave empty handed my surprise and delight, it was a complete joy to read I loved every moment of it sure it s on the younger side of the YA spectrum, or at least it sort of felt that way in the na vet and all over the place emotions of some of the characters, but there were so many sentence gems in this book so many quotes to mark down because they were jus [...]

    22. Honest to god, one of the absolute best books I ve ever read I marked over 100 brilliant quotes and there has only ever been three books in my lifetime where it was necessary to mark quotes I absolutely 150% recommend this and suggest that you randomly pick this up at your local book store ASAP because this book was absolutely beautiful and I fell in love with all of it than I thought I was going to when I started reading it 12 hours ago.There aren t many books that I commit to reading in a sin [...]

    23. Peach Award 3 stars I wish I had liked this book as much as it wanted me to like it It practically begged me to see it as deep and meaningful and life changing, but I just wasn t feeling it Gloria, the main character, and her inevitable slap slap kiss love interest seemed as vague and undefined at the end as at the beginning The attempts at creating some tension in the plot i.e a mysterious professor, two polar opposite roommate friends, mountaintop removal all just dissipated without ever amoun [...]

    24. Once , I was drawn to this for the lovely cover Judging by the blurb, I was ready to enjoy a fun, summery read about characters who attend a camp for academically talented students where they meet and bond in a local diner What a fun idea However, this novel is actually a rather predicable summer camp story that quickly falls prey to YA stereotypes.Story wise, this novel focuses on Gloria and her time at a fictional college sponsored Genius Camp, which is open to gifted students across the state [...]

    25. 2.5 stars The blue butterflies sprinkled across the cover advertised a sweet summer read The jacket blurb bragged a coming of age story from the unique perspective of a gifted seventeen year old girl I was entertained by the idea of Geek Camp, of a cryptic scavenger hunt, and of potential character development Despite these predictions and expectations, Breakfast Served Anytime fell flat for me because of its problematic writing style It s evident that Combs truly tried to emulate the thought pr [...]

    26. First of all, I have to admit I was truly afraid to read this book Why do you ask Without being so bold as to reveal my age, I was in one of the first groups of Kentucky Governor s Scholars Finding out that the author based the book on her experiences there and at the other elite program for Kentucky students, the Governor s School for the Arts, I was absolutely terrified to see how she projected this completely magical time of my life.You see, for us early participants of GSP, way before even H [...]

    27. This deftly written sort of ode to young discovery that celebrates extending oneself in thought and friendship will resonate with the philosophical teens and the adults nostalgic about those special events in their own youth that were watersheds shaping their identities Many states have summer programs for gifted and talented rising seniors such as the one that Gloria attends in Kentucky a meeting of high school minds for the best and brightest to study on a college campus and mingle with peers [...]

    28. Mmm Promise that wasn t quite delivered on, I think I was interested in this one because I went to nerd school not just nerd camp, as Gloria does, but a bona fide nerdy public boarding school with the same kind of scholarship offer that Gloria gets by virtue of going to this nerd camp get accepted, and go, to nerd camp school and get a free ride to the local university Like GloriaI wanted outoutout, which meant not the local university Gloria never felt quite fully fleshed out to me I think her [...]

    29. This book called to the deep seated teenaged part of me I enjoy reading my way through the paths of life I adore coming of age stories that truly capture the true essence of growing up This one does that but it fell a little short.Breakfast Served Anytime, is about a teenaged girl named Gloria, who is awarded the opportunity to participate in a geek camp of sorts She is also dealing with the lost of her grandmother as well as the pressuring realities of college, and the approach of adulthood.Whi [...]
