My Pick This Week Is...
Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society, #2)Uncommon Criminals (The Heist Society #2)
By Ally Carter
Published by Hyperion Book CH - June 21, 2011
298 pages

"Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life: Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world.That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn’t been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long — and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous, and that is . . . the emerald is cursed. Kat might be in way over her head, but she’s not going down without a fight. After all, she has her best friend — the gorgeous Hale — and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses and realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules."

    Why was this added to my TBR list? I haven't read the first one but BOTH sound absolutely die-worthy to read. I've heard so many fabulous reviews for this book about how great it was and I just couldn't turn away! Plus the cover is so fun looking that I can't help but want to read it! (I'm a big cover-lover). I'm going to have to get my hands on the first one and then on this one, they look like action packed books! I also happen to be a fan of Ally Carter :)
