Favourite Book Quotes Of The Week#7

A list of my favourite quotes from books I’ve read in the past week.

Heist Society By Ally Carter

Favourite Quote:-It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth.

Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society#2) By Ally Carter

Favourite Quote: 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.”

Identical By Ellen Hopkins

Favourite Quote:-I’m in love. And I like how that feels. And I hate how that feels. Because love is an invention of fiction writers.

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie travelled to Austria…to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving “the life” for a normal life proves harder than she’d expected.

Soon, Kat’s friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat’s father isn’t just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

For Kat, there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it’s a spectacularly impossible job? She’s got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family’s history–and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

(My Opinion)

An adventurous mission with a lot of twists and surprises and a complicated romance? With a bunch of teens? The reasons why Ally Carter is one of my favourite authors is beautifully shone in this novel. I felt for Kat and her crew throughout. The writing is smooth, enjoyable, and kind of perfect. Heist Society is like a teen version of Ocean’s eleven or Catch That Kid. Only more badass with characters that stick with you long after the book is done. They all feel real, like I was watching this in a movie theatre or quietly watching from a distance while its being told. The ending was not what I was expecting either.

The only thing that I probably didn’t like about this book is how little the relationship between Kat and Nick is. I wish the relationship between them formed a little bit more.

There is a mysterious grace that Kat Bishop has and it makes everyone around feel intimidated. She’s strong, determined, and is as quiet as a cat. I flew through this book because it’s fast paced with so much happening that I couldn’t put it down. Heist Society made me laugh more than once and also pulled on my heart-strings. I love the mystery that surrounds Hale and his family because it kept me guessing throughout the book about how his life was before he met Kat. The many twists and turns was easy for me to follow the ride along with her. I love that Ally Carter decided to write the book in third person too because I get to know the story from some of the other characters’ perspectives.

Even though I only shed a few tears for this book, it is still an amazing read, one that I will never forget. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good heist book that will defiantly keep you entertained and surprise you. I am anxiously awaiting the third book in this series, Perfect Scoundrels which will be out next year February.

Out Of Sight, Out Of Time (Gallagher Girl#5) By Ally Carter

4.3/5-This book was great. But I was expecting more from it, I think Cammie’s spell on me is wearing off.

(Summary taken from Goodreads)

The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, her memory is a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and dirt under her nails. All she wants is to go home. But even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers as Cammie and her friends face their most difficult challenge yet. With only their training and a few clues to guide them, the girls go in search of answers on the other side of the world. But the Circle is hot on their trail and will stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.

(My Opinion)

I didn’t like the idea for this story in the series, to be completely honest. I was expecting something more from Ally Carter but I still enjoyed this book. The characters were great, the action was okay with a very intense ending that almost made me believe that it was going to be the end.

The writing style for the previous books seemed better to me than it was for this book. After a while, the way that she started almost every chapter started to annoy the shit out of me. Ally Carter kept things over and over which was fine at first but I found myself just skipping in the middle of the book. Also, I couldn’t remember what half of the characters looked like and I was constantly waiting for her to remind me what Zach or Bex looked like but she didn’t. She reminded me of what Cammie and her family looked like of course, but not the secondary characters which I thought sucked.

The chapters in Out Of Sight, Out Of Time were pretty short and I got through the book in a day. They travelled to a couple of places to help Cammie remember and that part made me laugh at the awkward encounters and sad when the worst happened. I loved the way Ally Carter made everything fit with the puzzle and how Cammie couldn’t barely remember anything. I liked it because it surprised me at some points which is always great. The new characters’ in this book were amazing and very deceiving. Dr. Steve surprised me not only because he had to protect Zach but also because he didn’t want Cammie to get hurt by anyone.

Out Of Sight, Out Of Time is the filth book in the Gallagher Girl series. There will be one more book before the series will be over. I definitely would recommend this series to someone who likes spy books or if you just like some action and romance.
