Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can’t wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I’m particularly excited for…
Fire for Fire by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.
Not even close.
For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.
And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.
It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn…
Oh my god it has a release date and a cover now!!! Burn for Burn was, if I may say so without seeming like a sadist, a fun read, and I’ll definitely be buying the sequel, Fire With Fire, when it’s released as well. Burn for Burn ended on such a major cliffhanger, and that was after a paranormal-ish element had been thrown in, so I was really upset when it ended. I’m also excited to read the sequel because it’s pretty long at 518 pages, so I hope that means Han & Vivian will be amping up the drama even more. The Burn for Burn series is a great set of escapist reads that I plan to stick with until the final installment of the trilogy, Ashes to Ashes. Every once in a while you need a mean girls book, and I’m sure I’ll be ready for another one on September 3rd when Fire for Fire comes out!
