Heist Society (Heist Society, #1)Heist Society by Ally Carter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OMG! Just realized I hadn't done a review on book one.

This was a great introductory book to the high-profile family of thieves that is Kat's family. I enjoyed this book. It is somewhat Nancy Drewish/Disney movie, but in a very good way! I actually was never a Nancy Drew kinda girl, but this book is written with such wit and adventure, I was drawn into the world and did not want to leave. These characters become your friends, just as Ally "Gallagher Girls" do.

Ally made me love mystery even though I thought I didnt. It's mystery, for people who arent really fans of mystery. The book is so fun and the story is so intriguing that when I got to the end, I thought that was actually a mystery-type book and wait a minute, I don't livke mysteries! lol but then on second thought, I guess now I do or atleast Ally Carter's mysteries, I do! lol I have always enjoyed suspense and Ally puts just enough suspense in there to keep you wanted to turn the pages quickly!

I recommend picking up this series. Book two is 5 stars! The story gets better and better, can't wait for book three.

Also, pick up "Gallagher Girls" series.

Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society, #2)Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW! I LOVED this book. I read it in about 2 days! I enjoyed the first story, but this second one really stepped it up a notch and it actually made me rethink the first book. I have changed my rating for the second book from 3 to 4 stars. This book def. gets 5 stars. It kept me wanting , no NEEDING to read through till the end. It has so many twists and turns. Its a very exciting read. Its action, adventure, travel (makes u want to travel the world), little romance (could use a little more of this, LOL. Ally Carter's writing is different, I can't really explain it, but it always seems as if you are right there among the characters and you are at their side diving into the action just as they are. The main character Kat is someone I would love to have as a BFF or a cousin "if u read the book , u will know why I say cousin." Once I started reading book two, I was so happy to be back in the characters lives.

Without giving spoilers, Kat comes from a high-profile crime family. Even though she would like to have a "normal" life, her life is anything but. Oh, and of course, there is a sexy billionaire in the picture! lol Just found out on Ally's site that Drew Barrymore will produce and direct the upcoming film and I am soooooo excited. Ally Carter books always remind me of Disney movies, like Even Stevens, Lizzie McGuire or Parent-trap. I guess thats why I love them, they bring me back to good memories of being curled up with the family on the couch watching a movie.

This book is VERY clean, no bad language, no sexual content, no blood or gore which is proves you do not need all of that to have a great exciting story.

I highly recommend this series along with Ally's Gallagher Girls series. I never thought I would enjoy entering the thief or spy world, but now I find I don't want to leave it! Cant wait for the next one! Thanks Ally!
