Review: Uncommon Criminals

Title: Uncommon Criminals
Author: Ally Carter

Fifteen-year-old Kat Bishop and her fellow talented teenagers work together to find and steal the “Cleopatra Emerald” from an unscrupulous dealer and return it to its rightful owner, while a former love of her Uncle Eddie tries to get the gem for herself.

Kat Bishop is at it again, stealing for the greater good instead of evil. After the great Heist at the Henley, Kat has been running solo, retrieving long ago stolen items and returning them to their rightful owners. When she returns home, she realizes how badly she’s hurt her friends by leaving them behind. As they take on the job to retrieve the Cleopatra Emerald from a famous company, and return it to the true finders of the Emerald, they run into a large complication on the way: they were conned. Now, trying to steal the Cleopatra Emerald for the second time, they struggle to find a solution. Over stepping the most complicated of obsticles, Kat Bishop and her friends attempt the Heist of the century. The question is: will they succeed?

Uncommon Criminals was an excellent sequel to Heist Society. It was filled with adventure, the introduction of new allies and new enemies, and was jammed packed with action. Throughout the book, Hale and Kat get closer, but when Nick steps back into the picture, the green monster makes its appearance as Hale and Nick duke it out (or glare at each other until one or the other combusts into flames). I loved this book! It was well written, and it leaves you wanting more!

Quotes:
Kat felt her heart beat faster, adrenaline pumping through her veins, and she knew he was right. She studied him for a long time. “Do you believe in curses, Hale?”
He looked at her. “I believe in you.”
-Kat and Hale

“Oh you’re heist-drunk Kitty Kat. And you have been since the Henley.”
-Gabrielle

“Even the longest con was never more than an assortment of moments that were in themselves very very short.”
-Narrator (Kat)

I haven't had a library card in over ten years, so I'm super excited to finally get to borrow books for once (my wallet thanks me). They were selling off this beauty though for just a dollar! I'm so excited to read it.

Random question, I have a fly in my lamp right now... Anyone know how to get it out? The buzzing is giving me the creeps...

Side note, my phone camera is angry at me today. This was the best I could do...

#bookstagram #books #tbr #colours #blue #bookmarks #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookishlove #booklover #fan #jojomoyes #shortstories My first day of "bootcamp" was pretty great. We did an escape room and my team actually managed to escape! It was a first for me, that's for sure. My first textbook arrived in the mail too. Less fun, but I think I'll try taking a crack at it tonight.
