Waiting on Wednesday: Perfect Scoundrels

Well hello there!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine with the goal of featuring the books we’re eagerly anticipating.

Perfect Scoundrels by Ally CarterIf you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time you probably know I’m kind of obsessed with Ally Carter’s Gallagher books! So I was so glad I finally made time to read the first book in her other series, Heist Society. Well, now that I’ve read the first book in that series I am very excited for the third book, Perfect Scoundrels. And look at that cover! Carter’s covers are always so fabulous!

Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it’s that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting—or stealing—whatever they want.

No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale’s family, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother’s billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there’s no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won’t let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother’s will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company’s fortune. So instead of being the heir—this time, Hale might be the mark.

Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she’s willing to save her boyfriend’s company if it means losing the boy.

So, I literally just finished Heist Society and haven’t had the chance to pick up book two, Uncommon Criminals yet. But I’m not worried I still have until February 5, 2013 until Perfect Scoundrels is released, so that gives me tons of time to get my hands on book two before this awesome sounding book three comes out!

What books are you waiting for this week?

  1. I tried listening to Heist Society last summer when I was just starting to get into audiobooks, but I didn’t like it too much and I don’t remember why. Probably because it was my first audiobook? I feel like I should give the print a try and I still need to read the Gallagher girls series! They sound so fun and everyone seems to love them!

    • Ohhh start with the GG books. They’re sooo fun! At first I had a hard time getting into the narrator’s voices. They’re a little overdone, but now I kinda like them!

  2. I love this series. Thanks for the tip off that the third is finally coming out. Please check out my WoW!

    We also have a giveaway for Prodigy by Marie Lu that ends tonight.

  3. OH MY GOD! I blame you for making my TBR list that much longer! :P *giggle* I don’t think I’d heard of Heist Society before this post.. I looked it up on Goodreads and that sounds AMAZING! I’m totally into shows like White Collar, Leverage, and other super high end con artist/art thief kind of shows/movies. This book is like… the book version of that! Squee! It sounds awesome! How can I restrain myself from buying it?? :P
