5. Uncommon Criminals, by Ally Carter (Heist Society #2)
Teen thieves? Lots of action? An Egyptian curse? Romance? How could you not love this book?
I was constantly on the edge my seat while reading this, and there was so much twists in the plot, my mind couldn't keep up with it. I have to admit that I am very jealous of the main character, Katarina Bishop. After I finished this book, I had the strange urge to become a teen thief.
I have always been a fan of JLA. She definitely knows how to make us girls swoon. Personally, I think Opal was better than Onyx. And that ending! Ugh.. that huge cliffhanger killed me.
This book is the fourth in the Tiger Saga. It's probably the book that I was most eagerly anticipating. Basically, there are two Indian princes, falling for the same girl, and are both cursed into becoming tigers. Need I say more?
Oh, God. This book was so... beautiful. It fills my eyes with tears, it tears my heart into a million pieces, it gives me goosebumps. I cared deeply for all the characters and the writing was exquisite. The Book Thief taught me about the horrors of living a life of war and constant fear.
After finishing Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I needed this book. I needed it as much as a fish needs water; that's the extent of need I was feeling. And this book did not disappoint. The writing is still perfect, but it got much more depressing. Laini is a master storyteller, no doubt about that.
