My thoughts ~ On Fire by Nancy Holder

I really like the cover. There is definitely something animalistic about it!

I Love werewolves! I liked Nancy Holder's Wicked series and Unleashed. So I thought I would really love this book. I thought wrong. :(

Don't get me wrong. It's not awful or anything. I just don't think it's great either. It seemed to drag in parts and ramble in others. This is not the writing style that I'm used to. I guess I expected too much and I just assumed that because Nancy Holder wrote it that I would love it.

I'm used to Nancy Holder's adult series and that may have been some of my problem with this book. It's not her. It's me.

Unlike many other people, I haven't watched the show. I hear the book is exactly like the show for the most part. Anyway, my point is, my opinion is based solely on the book and not on how much I like the show. 

I know there have been many people that reviewed this book and said they loved it. Other than basing the book on the show, I don't know how they felt that way. You should read other reviews and form your own opinion before making a decision.

I suggest borrowing the book if you want to read it. If you really like it then you can buy it after. :D

I received this book through Nancy Holder in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly wanted to really like it but I think it is only mediocre. 

I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!


  1. I *think* there's no point in reading this book if you're not into this show! I started reading On Fire and I'm not really sure if I'm going to like it EVEN when I absolutely love the show with all my heart.

    It seems more like a book for die-hard fans to me. But of course, it's just my opinion!

    Thank you for your review. :)

  2. It's not that I'm not into the show, I just haven't had a chance to watch it. I usually prefer reading and my kids usually have something else that they want to watch. I think that I would probably like the show a lot. I'll try to watch the show so that I can compare it.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment!
