Ostrov Jar není jen idylické místo na dovolenou, ale to vědí pouze ti, co na něm žijí. Kat, Mary a Lillia chodí na střední školu, ale to je asi to jediné, co mají společného… tedy kromě touhy pomstít se. Pomstít se těm, kteří je šikanovali, vysmívali se jim a udělali jim ze života peklo. Špatné věci se totiž stávají i hodným holkám.
KAT už má dost toho, jak ji její bývalá

I've read PLL too (which you can probably tell) and it's most of the same stuff. It's been a while since I've read this series, but I'm pretty sure it is pretty clean except for some drug use, smoking, cursing, and sexual situations. They never go into much detail with the sexual situations, but it can get a little mature with the drugs and partying part. (less)

Technically, I'm not supposed to like this book. There are no end to clichéd characters, there's not so much a love triangle as a love star or whatever shape there is with way too many pointy ends (my Geometry teacher would be so proud), because it seems like everyon

What would you do if someone you trusted, your friend or lover, humiliated, betrayed and hurt you?

description

Mary, Kat and Lillia want revenge. They don’t all know each other, but what the three of them are seeking will bring them closer to one another than they could ever think possible. At first it’s just a question of retribution, but they slowly start forming real and strong links that are not so easily breakable.

Boy did I have fun reading this. I could tell you all about the clichés and the soporific

Sorry Karma, we're taking things into our own hands! Kat, Mary, and Lillia are out for revenge. These three incredibly different girls - both in personality and social status - help each other right some wrongs. A great balance of friendship, drama, and intrigue; Burn for Burn is full of entertainment value, and high in sass!

The girls: We've got three convincing voices made up of three distinctive personalities. In a style that will appeal to fans of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, we swi

OMG I THINK THIS SERIES IS GOING TO BE ONE OF MY NEW FAVS!
Aj the Ravenous Reader
"I’m sick of waiting for karma. Karma can suck it!"

A novel about revenge! Three girls conspire to finally punish High School’s most popular, meanest kids. I definitely want! That was really refreshing and entertaining.

I couldn’t stop laughing, but definitely not at the sad fate of those who deserved it but on the way the three girls plan and execute their revenge. It’s just too funny. I applaud the authors for making me feel really sympathetic towards all of the characters because as much as

My reaction to the sort-of-cliffhanger ending:



Yup. Burn For Burn is that good.

It's told from the POVs of three different girls, Lillia, Kat, and Mary, who meet by chance in a bathroom during the lowest points of their lives. Together, they plot to take down the people who have hurt them.

Mean Girls style.



You can always, always tell who's narrating because their voices are so distinctive. Unlike a certain dystopian, who only had two POVs, one of which was a different gender, and they couldn't get

I love revenge stories. Whether it's Edmond Dantes in Count of Monte Cristo or Beatrix Kiddo in Kill Bill, there's just something about characters who say, No. Not anymore. Not again.

In Burn for Burn, we meet three characters -- a princess, a basket case, a brain. The chapters alternate between their points of view as we discover how they end up on a collision course of revenge. The book op

Alright, this book was filled with every ridiculous high school stereotype ever, and is so unrealistic. However, I am hooked so I guess that really didn't matter.

Overall Thoughts
All I gotta say it that this was such a fun and addictive series! Not to mention just totally off the charts with insanity. It really ended up going somewhere completely weird and unexpected but totally awesome. The second book was by far my favorite cause it had the most twist and turns. And everything leading up to it was just pure fun high school drama and who doesn't enjoy that? lol Real

Now I'm pissed! Jenny Han was one of the best Contemporary, Realistic fiction writers ever! Why must she go and write Supernatural, fantasy fiction???? This is so upsetting because most fantasy-fic writers, do not really write good books. so if she writes a crappy book and I read it, I won't remember her for the awesome We'll Always Have Summer but for the crappy job she did with a fantasy book. Ugh. For some, you might think this is stupid of me and petty. It most definitely is. Guess I will fi ...more

Der Schreibstil ist wirklich super und das Buch liest sich toll. Allerdings haben mich die 3 Mädels gerade zu Beginn ganz schön genervt, da sie teilweise echt oberflächlich handeln. Auch die Spannung entwickelt sich nur langsam, das hätte eindeutig mehr sein können..

Re-read June 2018 - I listened to the story this time around, and I loved it so much. The characters have such unique voices, and the tension really builds throughout. It was lower paced than I remembered, but I'm pleased that it had so much re-reading power. The characters have a completely new context after finishing the series once before!

Loved it!
This is such a fun story, and so easy to read.
It's super fast-paced and I had such a hard time putting it down. I loved all of the characters, they each have their own personalities and I love how they all interacted.
The plot is so interesting, even though it's a little predictable. I can't wait to read the next book!

Book was first read in November of 2012. My thoughts thoughts then: THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I don't have one single complaint.
Rating: 5 stars

Book was re-read in August of 2015. My thoughts now: Just as good as the first time, if not better. I am totally hooked on this story and I am going to jump straight into the second book.

Gostei muito desse livro. Ele fica meio louco e ridículo no final, com a parte paranormal e (view spoiler), mas em geral eu me diverti horrores com as estupidezes dessas três.
Definitivamente a minha favorita é a Kat, apesar de ser a mais precipitada. Eu gosto da Lilia e acho que ela foi a melhor desenvolvida das três nesse livro. O elo mais fraco é a Mary, o que é irônico considerando o que acontece no final.

Welp. That wasn't what I expected. In many ways I think I've been putting this one off because I knew it wasn't going to be what I wanted. It's not that it didn't have it's exceptional moments where I found some immense enjoyment out of the three girls' bonding experiences or the revenge they were seeking on the individuals who treated them badly. But, at the risk of sounding hoity toity, it all just came across so....juvenile.

I cannot even tell you how excited I was to read this book. The beautiful cover and the badass blurb was way too hard to resist. I can safely say that this book didn't disappoint me at all. I ended up reading it so fast because it just pulled me in that much. But I have to take away half a star due to a tiny little detail that I'll explain later in this review.

Psaní Jenny Han mě baví. Je to takový ten styl psaní, kdy o ději v knize přemýšlíte i v práci nebo ve škole, protože chcete číst dál. Vedle slaďoučkého Všem klukům je tahle kniha trochu "drsnější", ale i tak to byla skvělá oddechovka.
Knížka byla fajn, pokud máte rádi film "John Tucker musí zemřít", tak přečtení vřele doporučuju. :)

Jen ke konci to začlo být trochu divný. Ale jsem zvědavá na další díly.

I'd say 4.5 stars, just because it did have a lot of flaws, but I really really enjoyed this book.

I read the entire thing in under 24 hours, and loved every second. I was thoroughly immersed in the writing, the characters, the setting, and the revenge story. I haven't read a book this quickly in a long time and it was a ton of fun.

I really only had 2 little qualms about it. I did not like the weird Carrie-like twist at the end. It makes me worry about the next 2 books and whether they will hold

Being a huge fan of Jenny Han’s books, when I first heard about Burn for Burn, I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. Also Siobhan Vivian was an author whose books I had been promising myself to getting around to for ages. So I knew picking up this book would be a win-win situation!

Burn for Burn focuses on three girls, Kat, Mary and Lillia forced to work together on one common goal; revenge. You know the saying revenge is a dish best served cold? Well this saying totally applied here. The three
