      As much as it pains me to say this because I really loveThe Merciless, but I just can t with this I ve stuck it out for 139 pages It s just not pulling me in the way I need a book to right now I might try again later only to find out what happens in the end I could already tell it wouldn t be than 2.5 for me anyway At least for nowDNF.

    2. Cait (Paper Fury) says:
      This book is a crimey paranormal horror thriller sci fi.I think A book with an identity crisis It s just WOAH we were cramming all the genres in here It s set in Juvie, with sci fi conspiracy theories, and paranormal superpowers For me, it was too much without enough detail to anything specific BUT HEY At least it was creepy I WAS CREEPED SEVERAL TIMES And that is a definite win.Basically the story is of Angela who is in juvie and gets manipulated into taking care of this 10 year old creeptastic [...]

    3. Paige (Illegal in 3 Countries) says:
      Gave up 212 pages in Props for having a majority WOC cast, but I was surprised to see no mention or discussion about how children of color end up in facilities like Brunesfield inordinately often versus white children.I gave up because the novel is too obvious in its attempts at horror For instance, Jessica s eyes turn fully black when she s struggling with her power to start fires with her mind We all know about the black eyed children and the mental visual is creepy, but I would find it scari [...]

      This and other reviews can be found on my blogMy Friends Are FictionMy Thoughts I ve never seen Orange is the New Black so that aspect of the description comparison didn t draw me in but the summary and promise of a creepy 10 year old did Overall I thought this book was mostly entertaining but I did feel it wasn t nearly as creepy as I expected and there really wasn t a definitive conclusion.I really enjoyed the start of this book I felt the writing was strong and I loved getting to know the mai [...]

      MILD SPOILERS AHEADBurning by Danielle Rollins, author of the dark YA horror series called The Merciless, is being compared to the likes of Walter Dean Myers Monster, Orange is the New Black, Stephen King s Firestarter and Carrie Sounds like pretty high praise if you ask me As a fan of Stephen King and someone who thinks there is nowhere near enough horror in YA today, I was very interested to see where this story would go By the synopsis and prologue, Burning sounds like the chilling gritty sto [...]

    6. Bridget says:
      A perfectly creepy thriller The characters are incredibly well drawn, and the claustrophobic prison style setting is just right for a story that mixes realism view spoiler and the paranormal hide spoiler The slowly building danger and tension pairs beautifully with the reader s growing affection for the characters A great choice for a book you won t want to put down I d love this to be the first in a series, but even if it isn t, it s still a satisfying read.Also It s great to read a book featur [...]

      Received from Bloomsbury USA Children s BooksReceived Via NetGalley THE REVIEWWhy this book It seemed interesting What I thoughtThis book was not what I expected I expected something dark and ominous but that was just not the case On Netgalley it did say Orange is the New Black meets Carrie I got the whole Orange Is the New Black vibe but the Carrie part is what confuses me I didn t find this book creepy at all Sure Jessica can start fires with her mind, which is cool and yeah maybe in some case [...]

      3.5 stars Straight after finishing this book, I couldn t help but smile I loved how original and different the story had been and was sure that it had made a lasting impression but it s a couple of days later and I m rethinking that train of thought While this book was undeniably unique, enjoyable and downright clever at times, it was also a little slow and lacking that intangible quality that makes books truly shine I don t know what it is, but it wasn t there and the I think about it, the les [...]

      Angela grew up in a household where her father taught her that monsters were interesting than heroes and soon she fell into that monster category by getting into trouble and mischief One thing led to another, and she ended up in juvie and behind bars Things have been going as well as they could in juvie and Angela has her two best friends Issie and Cara With only three months left until her release, Angie is trying to be on her best behavior However, things are going to get cray cray over the n [...]

      An urban fantasy thriller that reminded me of Girl, Interrupted meets Alexandra Bracken s Darkest Minds Very different and interesting

    11. Rashika (is tired) says:
      This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoWhen a book s tagline is Orange is the New Black with a twist, one cannot help but be drawn to the book When the book also has a creepy cover and a REALLY cool premise, one feels the need to get one s hands on it as soon as possible One in this case is obviously me and could also be you, IDK how you feel and I was really excited about this book The excitement paid off because Burning is a really fucking good book It is deliciously creepy prett [...]

    12. Michelle (Pink Polka Dot Books) says:
      I really liked the first half, but after that it started to get all trying too hard I wish the story was toned down because the characters were very strong and carried the story without all these weird twists.Just before Angela s scheduled release from juvie, THINGS start happening First, a 10 year old girl Jessica is brought in under high security Then, a new program called Sci Girls is causing a major stir among the inmates There s something about Jessica, Sci Girls, and the director of Sci Gi [...]

    13. Lyn *GLITTER VIKING* says:
      Iwow I have a lot rolling around in my head If you are looking for something different, here is your book I am just sorry to see a rushed ending and skimmed over world building I can see some potential for future books in this one.

      U.S readers, don t forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this review The nitty gritty A suspenseful young adult tale with awesome female friendships and an intriguing supernatural element.A couple of years ago I read and loved the dark and violent Merciless, written under Rollins pen name Danielle Vega And so when the author offered me a copy of her latest, I was looking forward to of the same But as much as I enjoyed Burning, it turned out to be much tamer than I was expecting, and while [...]

    15. Figgy says:
      The buzz surrounding Burning suggests it s a cross between Orange is the New Black Juvie Style and Firestarter, and there are elements of both of these to be sure, what with the girl who is connected to fire related events, and all the inmate stories.But, unfortunately, the story delivered doesn t quite match up to what is promised in the blurb For starters, the blurb begins with the line After three years in juvie, Angela Davis is now months away from release while the Angela of the book has be [...]

      A eerie, spooky story that would fit right in as an X Files episode.Rollins, Danielle Burning Bloomsbury, 2016.Angela is so close to getting out of juvie, she can almost taste freedom Just a few months toeing the line and she ll be out in the world again Then Jessica arrives Jessica is ten, the youngest of the inmates, and there are all kinds of wild rumors circulating about what she did to earn her sentence Angela is tasked with befriending the young girl as a condition of her impending parole [...]

      This review was originally posted on Novel InkNote This review is based on the 44% of the book that I read.This review is very painful for me to write If you saw THIS post then you know that Burning was a book that I was REALLLLLYYYYY looking forward to As a huge fan of Orange is the New Black, I was definitely intrigued with the fact that this book was compared to it, and adding a little mystery to that I was sold Unfortunately, it didn t work well for me.I think the main problem I had with thi [...]

      DNFing for now.I m pretty sure I did request this I haven t yet watched Orange is the New Black which this is compared to but after a few chapters I m just not feeling this one at all I usually love dark stories set in psychiatric hospitals, etc but not connecting with these characters at all Maybe I ll try the show and then come back and give this a try I was dead set against watching Breaking Bad too and then of course I loved it.Read of my reviews on YA Romantics or follow me on BloglovinTha [...]

      DISCLAIMER I got this eARC for free from NetGalley Expected publication April 5th 2016 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens.It s been a while since I checked out NetGalley Until one day, I randomly found myself on the site and this was one of the titles on the front page Hey, it was a new year, new reading goals, so I decided to sign up for it.The blurb says it s like Orange Is The New Black but I don t have Netflix I have Hulu Plus so I m not familiar with it The setting is pretty interesting too A juve [...]

    23. Sandy says:
      I loved the way the author set this novel up I knew there was something sinister about Jessica the minute that she was introduced but I just had to wait as I let the author slowly and meticulously let the novel run its course Jessica seemed like a typical teen on the outside It was the way that she was handled by others and how they treated her that made me suspicious She appeared to be small and fragile amongst the other prisoners in this correctional facility as she was brought in and for that [...]

    24. Erin Cataldi says:
      Stephen King s Firestarter meets teenage delinquents in juvie This young adult novel was creepy and compelling and kept me guessing Angela is just biding her time until she gets out of Brunesfield Correctional Facility for Girls, she and her bunk mates get along fine but things get weird when they bring in a young girl by the name of Jessica Weird things happen around Jess, people get burned, freaky fires occur, and a new group of people start working at the facility Most of the girls at Brunesf [...]

      So this started as mildly creepy, took a turn into a much creepier territory tinged with paranormal horror, and then ended in an over the top blaze of disappointment Boo.The BeginningWe re introduced to Angela and her friends Cara, Issie at a juvenile correctional facility The trio make up the high security, violent offenders group, which seems mostly like an excuse for there to be only 3 of them there are lower tier offenders Angela isn t the most interesting protagonist I ve read, but she s a [...]

      ARC kindly provided by Bloomsbury Publishing Australia in exchange for an honest review.Review Burning Hmm How to describe it At first it seemed just like any other novel about a girl locked away in juvenile prison where things were about to get real nasty, real quick, probably scare the BEJEEBIES out of me, and leave me forever grumpy, depressed and add one reason to my long list of why I don t read crimes thrillers Yep It was definitely not a happy start for me with this novel.But let me tell [...]
