Super

Plot, characters

ending left a few questions

One of my favourite things to do is browse charity shops for books. I would much rather pay around a £1 for a book rather than splashing out the usual £6.99 of the same book but brand new. I recently came across this book for just £1 in my local charity shop. Marshmallows For Breakfast is a...

Full of suspense and emotion

Ive finished it!

Marshmallows for breakfast is the 3rd book I have read by Dorothy Koomson and it is her follow up novel to the successful My Best Friends Girl which I thoroughly enjoyed. The main character in the story is Kendra Tamale and she has just returned to the UK from Australia. We find out from...

Marshmallows for Breakfast is the second book I have read by Dorothy Koomson. Earlier this year I read her novel 'My Best Friend's Girl' which I absolutely adored so I was very keen to read this one and it did not disappoint! It is the sort of book which should appeal to you if you like reading...

Not for me

I got the book from the Library

Weak storyline and dull characters

After reading another of Dorothy Koomson's novels "My Best Friend's Girl" - a book which I very much enjoyed after it MADE me want to read more, even after crying when reading it! - I decided to try Koomson's new offering.....''Marshmallows for Breakfast''. What’s the Story? The premise featured...

Good

“A bit of a let down...”

published 24/09/2009

easy to read, good characters

not as good as her other books, predictable

I got this book out of the library after having enjoyed two of Dorothy Koomson's previous books, I was looking forward to getting my teeth into a good book and losing myself in an interesting plot and story but sadly this never happened with this book and I found myself disappointed. **Dorothy...

Gentle, great story, heart-warming, lovely story

Dorothy Koomson first came to my attention last year when her novel "My Best Friend's Girl" was one of Richard and Judy's Summer Reads 2006. I adored that story and when I saw in Waterstones that she had another book coming out, I went straight in and bought it, and I am glad I did. It was one of...

Deals with serious themes and issues

I read one of Dorothy Koomson's earlier novels, "My Best Friend's Girl", a while ago and was literally sobbing my way throughout the very first chapter! As it happened, I didn't feel that the rest of the novel lived up to the opening (or to the hype) but I did come away with the feeling that I'd...

gripping read

After reading "My Best Friend's Girl", I knew I was going to go on and read more by Dorothy Koomson. Marshmallows for breakfast grabbed me because the title was so unusual. Kendra our main character has been living in Australia for a couple of years, but now she is returning to England, and is...

“Marshmallows for Breakfast”

published 21/03/2011

A great read

Ending a bit disappointing

Kendra Tamale is the main character of this book. She has rented a room from Kyle Gadsborough and, when she first arrives, he is away with his family. When Kyle arrives back, Kendra quickly realises that Kyle has split from his wife, through a heated phonecall that he has with her while his...

You could use it to stop a table rocking

Plot, character, pace - the lot

I was very disappointed by this book. The author received a great deal of hype after being selected for the Richard and Judy shortlist with her previous book. I didn\'t read that but was expecting great things from this. Unfortunately, I found it offputting from the very start. It opens with a...

Absoltuly Lovely

It had to finish :( and now i miss the characters!

Another massive hit from Dorothy Koomson. I absolutely love her work and would recommend this book to anyone. My best friends girl and goodnight beautiful are heartbreakingly beautiful and have you reaching for the tissues, but marshmallows for breakfast is a lovely story which does not require a...
