    1. This book had a pretty insane amount of drama, one that didn t properly blend with the supposed huge mystery that the synopsis promised And I say supposed huge mystery since it never really felt like an important part of the story for me The romance overtook it for sure.Now, the romantic in me says it s okay for the romance to take up most of the book, but only if it s executed well Nothing Left to Burn failed in that department, if you ask me Insta kiss happened, and the general mood between th [...]

    4. I received a copy of Nothing Left to Burn via Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review.This book had me in tears So many tears Just the raw emotion contained within 368 pages is overwhelming Nothing Left to Burn is a rare type of book It brings so many different characters from different backgrounds and meshes them together excellently The setting ties in extremely well with both the characters and the plot In fact, they practically go hand in hand It makes absolute sense [...]

    6. 3.5 StarsNothing Left to Burn was not really my cup of tea I had the wrong impression of this book before starting it and couldn t really relate to it The cover of this book is misleading and I found the characters unrelatable That being said, this book is quite diverse and could be enjoyable for others who like learning about firefighters.The cover of Nothing Left to Burn makes the book seem a little bit like Rites of Passage by Joy N Hensley, where a girl joins the military and has to prove th [...]

As a big fan of Blount s previous novel, Some Boys, I was really excited to learn about Nothing Left to Burn It sounded like the type of book that I would love so I was so excited to get started reading it and while I did enjoy the story, Unfortunately, I didn t LOVE it like I did Some Boys.Reece or Logan he seems to go by both in the book , is on a personal mission to get his father s attention His dad hasn t spoken to him since the accident that killed Logan s brother, Matt Everyone, including [...]

    14. PERSONAL RESPONSE Nothing Left to Burn was a fantastic read I loved how Patty Blount switched point of views from Reece and Amanda It was interesting reading from both of their perspectives, since they were so different Reece was an interesting character, as was Amanda Amanda was a tough girl There are not many books out there about girls becoming a firefighter I think it was great that Amanda had a goal and she went for it Reece was a lost boy and had me wanting to tell him it was going to be o [...]

    16. Arc provided by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review2 stars.How can I say that this book totally knocked me off my feet but still kept me at heels How can I say that this book is one of those that dealt with relationships of the protagonists with their fathers with flares of brilliance and at the same time, reduced the potential of the book by making the romantic relationship of Reece and Amanda a bit sudden and idealistic I don t know What I really liked about the book was how believable [...]

    18. I received an ARC from the publisher via a NetGalley in exchange for an honest review While this book had its faults, and you know I m going to list them in detail soon, I really liked it once I got past the first few chapters First, I really liked the brotherhood that these characters find in their junior fire squad Being part of this group made a huge difference in the two main characters lives, and I think readers will respond to their comraderie and teamwork Second, this book gave readers an [...]

    19. More reviews at Mrs ReaderPants.WHAT I LIKED I loved the firefighter theme of this book It s something I haven t seen much in YA literature, and I know that firefighters really do have a brotherhood that goes beyond blood The author clearly knows a lot about firefighter culture and the family bond that exists among them.I also enjoyed the complex relationship between Reece and his father Nothing is easy for these two, and their dialogue is incredibly realistic I enjoyed seeing their relationship [...]

    20.

    21. More like 3.5 stars.Nothing Left To Burn turned out to be an interesting read I enjoyed that it made me ache for its characters not that I enjoyed their pain, just you know, connected with them for a bit and that it had an unusual playground that was entertaining to read about This book is told in dual POVs First we have Reece Logan who is struggling to lead a normal life after his brother s death in a car accident he is supposedly at fault Then, there s Amanda who only wishes to have a real fam [...]

    22. By far my favorite book of the three that I have read by Ms Blount Something about this book, the character of Reece, I think, just sucked me in from page 1 The pain that Reece carried over his brother s death, his part in it, the deathbed promise he made his brother, the nonexistent relationship with his father, his desire to be see and be good enough all of it just wove together to make a character that I ached for and felt and intense need to stick by The plot line also fascinated me So much [...]

    23. Eh This book contains many elements that I don t like, but dammit, it was also just full of heart, and for that, I award it three stars.Throughout the entire novel, emotions are running high, and things did get quite overdramatic overexaggerated at times so that when I finished the book, I felt physically exhausted Of our two MCs, Reece is struggling at home after a car accident he caused that killed his brother, strained family relations even further and led to his father abandoning the family [...]

    24. I m going to make you see me Make you hear me Make you acknowledge that everything I am is because of Matt and everything I m not is because of you Reece is gifted as in he can easily memorize anything he concentrates on As a child he easily grew bored and threw tantrums only his mother and brother consoling him His father always kept a distance from Reece even when the younger son wanted to join his brother and father on their trips He s very determined, but also a very broken character The rea [...]

    25. Being a fan of Patty Blount already, I was pretty excited for this book and was geeked to get it off Netgalley early Nothing Left to Burn was a pretty good read that kept me going, turning pages but didn t fully knock it out of the book park for me With that being said I would rate it at about 3.5 but rounded to a 4 for star rating I went with that because of a few reasons that I will list below I didn t really connect with the characters very well, granted I really enjoyed Reece as a character [...]

    26. God I hate this book so much I have so many connections with this book, and it just made me realize so many things Great book patty Blount

    27. He was never good enough, even at a young age and now, instead of just walking away, he needs to prove something, he needs to make a point and then he can walk away When is enough, enough though With his brother gone, his father moved out and his mother devastated, Reece decides he needs to get in his father s face Yeah, that always works I just didn t understand how this was going to play out and as the book progressed, this situation escalated His father treated him horribly and I was getting [...]

    28. ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review Sometimes you start a book and it completely breaks your heart In the first scene First paragraph First chapter Sometimes even the first sentence Nothing Left to Burn by Patty Blount was that kind of read for me The prologue and first chapter of this book is a beautifully written first person narrative that immediately pulled me in and made my sympathize, care, and hurt for Reece and all he s going through, all the guilt he s car [...]
