Review: Heist Society

Title: Heist Society
Author: Ally Carter

Katarina Bishop’s life has never been normal. She has traveled the world, but not out of leisure. She has gone to many museums, but not to admire the art. Her family’s business was not normal: it was theft. The life of a thief wasn’t glamorous, it wasn’t safe, but it was always interesting. However, Kat decided to leave the life of crime for a normal life, or as normal as any stolen life could be.
When her old friend Hale busts her out of school and tells her her family and friends’ lives were in jeopardy, she hopped onto the next flight back to the world of crime. She finds that a dangerous man had been robbed of five lost historic paintings, and her father wasn’t just on the suspect list. He was the list. To clear his name, she must get back the paintings from a thief greater than her father, and more daring and crazy at that. Meeting new people, trusting old friends, Katarina must pull of the greatest heist in her family, and maybe the world’s, history-hoping to steal her life back along the way.

This story is crazy with adventure, taking you all around Europe, where danger lurks at every corner, and challenges await. And, as in every other book I’ve read, it hints at love, but is it with Hale or someone with a little more mystery to their suit?
This book was epically addicting, and you could never tell which way they would turn, or which challenge or enemy was going to strike.

Quotes from the book:
“And I didn’t choose it, Kat. I chose you.”
-wonder who this is *suspense*

“Thanks to you, Gabs, we just figured out a half dozen ways not to rob the Henley.”
-Kat

“Hale, I-”
“You know what? Nevermind. Either way, I’m in, Kat.” He seemed resolved as he slipped on his sunglasses. “I’m all in.”
-Kat and Hale

Annie Get Your Gun - Female sharpshooter

The first female sharpshooter I thought of was Ringer. I really liked the 5th Wave, and this sampler is what sold me on the series. I still haven't read the second or third book though...

Made me think of the Diamond Sisters covers with the geometric design. So of course I pulled out my copy and snapped a picture haha.

King and I - Royal and a commoner

Doesn't a killing machine count as a commoner? For the sake of this post, I'd say yes. Really loved this book, but I was kind of sad that it was turned into a series... I hope it's not simply because the book did well that it got a sequel...
