Preview — Fire with Fire by Jenny Han
Fire with Fire (Burn for Burn #2)
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...more
More lists with this book...
After reading the last page of Burn for Burn, I thought. Wait. That's it?! and frantically flipped the pages to make sure I hadn't missed anything:
Needless to say, thankfully, there's a sequel. Looking forward to it!
WOW. So, Fire with Fire finally came out and provided some closure...until it didn't. The plot twist about Mary was mind-blowing, and the end left me terrified to see what Jenny and Siobhan have planned for these infuriatingly rash characters in the next...more
Wow, I'm still panting a little bit after that ending. But I'll get to that later.
So Fire with Fire picks up not long after the big Homecoming Dance disaster. The girls got away with what they did but their plan went wrong because Reeve is now injured. And then of course, there's Mary, who knows that there's something wrong with her and that she had something to do with what happened at the dance, but is trying her best to deny it and hides it from the other girls. But Mary is also still hopele...more
An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review. This did not alter or influence my thoughts in any way.

GOOD LORD SWEET BABY JESUS. THIS BOOK WAS SIZZLING, I TELL YOU! SIZZLING GOOD!
Honestly, I'm not coherent right now. My feelings are all over the place and I don't think I'll be able to keep myself from gushing how madafracking awesome this book was and how it made me all...more
Thank you Simon and Schuster Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.
Burn For Burn was fun. Fire With Fire was another story. Much more complex with depth and more of a realistic backbone, the sequel to Burn For Burn surprised me entirely. If you were not the greatest fan of Burn For Burn, I believe that this one is still worth trying because it was a huge improvement. Sweet revenge turns sour...
I instantly connected with Kat and Lillia’s character in Burn for Burn, so I couldn’t wait to s...more
What on earth did I just read?
First of all, I'd have to say that I'm not a fan of contemporary books and don't read much of that genre. But this book right here just swept me off my feet! Yes, it's just that good.
I'm sure we all want a taste of revenge, especially to those who once hurt us the most. And that's exactly what Lilia, Kat and Mary are after, sweet revenge. After their little avenge-gone-wrong at homecoming, the girls decided to rest the matter. But what of R...more
I went into this remembering close to nothing of Burn for Burn. But that's not a problem, because this book does a great job of reminding you of what happened previously.
I really liked the characters because none of them are really similar; they're each their own person. So even though it's narrated from three people, you never do get confused. The side characters are great too, especially Alex.
The ending leaves you with a ton of questions. Like, what whaaaat? Things add up...more
By the end of Burn for Burn, I pretty much hated every character except for Lindy. I was certainly sympathetic to them all in one way for another, but it didn’t stop me from...more
I think a lot of the intensity came from Mary and all that supernatural stuff related to her. In the first book I didn't really get it but now I think I'm beginning to, sorta. I'm reall...more
If you've been following our blog for a while, then you should already know how OBSESSED I was with Burn for Burn last year. I literally devoured it in ONE day. Anyways, I squealed when I got this book for review, because Burn for Burn ended in such a major cliffhanger! Fire with Fire starts off exactly where Burn for Burn left off. I kind of had to skim through my copy of Burn for Burn to refresh my memory because I kind of forgot a lot of...more
Holy crap! 4.5 stars, Worthy successor to the first book... when I saw the thickness and read the premise I was a bit dubious... I loved 'Burn for Burn" and was hoping this would captivate me as much. 'Fire with Fire' certainly delivered :) It picks up almost right from when the first book left off and we see the aftermath of what the girls did. Rennie's Mean Girl attitude gets kicked up a few notches but in a way I felt sorry for her in t...more
Fire with fire starts exactly where it left us in Burn for burn. The Homecoming Dance. A perfect revenge plan and a total failure of it.
Lillia, Kat, and Mary totally fail to accomplish their plan and they only worry become how to get away with it. The consequences are pretty bad - Reeve is injured and our sweet girl...more
Second in the Burn for Burn trilogy
Fire with Fire picks up exactly where Burn for Burn left off. Lillia, Kat, and Mary are back. They have a new plan. This time Lillia will have Reeve fall in love with her. He’s been chasing her for years so what better way to finally screw him and Reenie up. Reenie is worse than before and she’s ready to rule to the school and take Lillia down. Mary has it worse than everyone because something just isn’t qu...more
My feelings for Burn for Burn were nowhere near as intense as the emotional breakdown that Fire with Fire caused. The last time I liveblogged like that, I believe, was when I was reading Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris, a...more
Fire with Fire picks up where Burn for Burn left off. Immediately Kat, Mary and Lillia have to deal with the consequences of revenge plot they put together to ruin Reeve at the Homecoming Dance.
But, they're not finished just yet.
After Mary confronts Reeve on Halloween night the girls finally realise he definitely needs to get what's coming to him. After realising his true weakness the girls have it all planned out, they needs to crush Reeve.
I thoroughly enjoy...more
So many things make sense now. I won't spoil anything, but the ending clarified something that really bugged me which was how the entire book I was trying to rationalize how I could love a character like Reeve after what he did to Mary. That scene in the maze, when it happened, I wanted to kick him in his manly parts in a way that was conducive to him not being able to procreate. Ever. But if the wic...more
I went into this sequel thinking it was going to be as bad as the first one, but damn was I wrong. Yes, the flaws are still there and there are so many things I can point out that bother me with this series but I have this urge to finish it quickly, like I'm dying to know what happens next. I'm so wrapped up in their little scheme and their lives and their happenings that I feel as if I can overlook these imperfections just for a page or two...more
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
It's impossible to talk about this book without huge spoilers, so I'm not even going to try:
(view spoiler)[Okay, so I kind of called the Mary thing about halfway through the book. I started realizing that no one else in school ever interacts with her, and when she "woke up" in the strange classroom and no one looked at her I knew something was up. I'm still very confused about her aunt and what happened with her mom towards the end, though.
I'm also confused on why Ka...more
