Love. Art. Thieves.

Hey guys I’m sorry for my lack of posts, I just needed some time to recharge and now I will definitely try to get back on track… again!

Lately I fell in love with the Heist Society series by Ally Carter. I’m not gonna write about each book separately but I will give a review for them as a whole.

Overall rating: 4/5.

You know how you always judge books by their covers? Well this is exactly why I didn’t wanna read this series but they still kinda made me curious. I mean… look at this cover:

6574102

You just can’t be attracted to a book that looks like this. And this is just the cover for the first book, I don’t think anyone needs any more details.

So because I can give second chances and a benefit of a doubt, I started reading the first one and could not stop. I love the characters and I love how mature they are. I forget they’re like 15-16 years old! Like how can a 15 year old rob a super safe and secured museum making up a really good plan in a super short time? Most of the 15 year olds play Fortnite so that was not very realistic.

I’m trying to keep this as much spoiler-free as I can but there’s also like a huge drama happening (of course) that might endanger Kat’s dad’s life (Kat is the main character). Of course she solves everything in the end with her squad and there’s a love story starting to sparkle between her and W. W. Hale, the rich and cool one.

In the second book Kat has been conned which was really dangerous because it involves the Cleopatra emerald, she basically steals it for the wrong people and she has to get it back from them but they know any tactic they could approach so it was pretty stressful for everyone (even myself). Long story short, there’s drama between Kat and Hale and a lot of suspense and them being smarter than everybody and we don’t know what Hale’s W. W. stand for!! I love how Kat is always trying to guess them.

Anyways, moving forward, Perfect Scoundrels (book 3) was SO GOOD!!!!This time it has to do with Hale’s family and there’s drama between Hale and Kat again because of course she wants to keep him out of it?! I didn’t like that part. It’s his family and he has all the right to know what’s going on, dear. Now they also have to rob the Henley (the museum from the first book which is even more secured) and a huge bank! I like that they make it a little bit more realistic involving the Interpol and all the travelling and talking about art just adds the perfect details. It involved a lot more complications and the most suspense so far. It has plot twists and a much more developed love story and now there’s family involved too! I think it had all the things I wanted like emotions, plot twists, love story, action and cool characters.

I can’t wait for the 4th book to come out!!

“I’ll take the Lake”

I thought I’m gonna have a heart attack or faint or something. THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE COLLEEN HOOVER’S BOOKS.

Slammed.

Rating: 20/5.

I think it is pretty clear, since this is a Colleen Hoover book, that I’ve read it in a few hours. I found myself in the same situation as “I don’t know what to read, I’m gonna get myself a cup of Colleen Hoover” which turned into 2 cups cause I HAD to read the next one too because I didn’t calm down with it.

I love both Layken and Will. I love Will more though, he kinda reminds me of Jim Halpert’s character from The Office. Always funny and cute and smart.

I was impressed by the idea of slamming. I didn’t know that it is actually a thing, initially I thought Colleen came up with the idea but afterwards I found out that people are actually doing it. And I love it. Also, I think it was awesome that Colleen actually wrote the slams the characters performed and I loooved theeeem!

Colleen has some really awesome ideas, like the glass vase full of life tips stars to help them when they need it the most when they won’t have anyone else besides them and their brothers (and Will’s grandparents).

By the end of the book my chest was aching. Literally. And then I couldn’t stop thinking about them. And then I’ve read the second book. Review to come.

As a conclusion, YES GO READ IT!!

18 years of solitude.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon owns my heart momentarily.

Rating: 4/5.

When you start reading it be ready to drown in cuteness. I love Madeline! I love how she deals with her “sickness” and her way of being generally. I love the conversations between Olly and her and I love her courage.

All the adventures they have actually made me want to be there too and do the same things. I think they’re one of my favorite couples in the YA world. They both have to deal with stuff but their personalities make up for any trouble they have.

What do I think of what her mom did?

That was just cruel.

I’m glad they found out she needs some treatment and a psychiatrist because I just couldn’t believe that she is serious tho’ I was glad this book can give you a glimpse of what trauma can actually do to a person. Her intention was pure but it was the wrong way of protecting everything she has left which is Madeline. Yes I was angry at her when I found out what was going on and yes I came to my senses and I began to understand her.

Carla is just awesome. She’s the type of person anyone needs in their life. So trustworthy and kind and serious about everything she does, I just loved her.

The illustrations in it are so adorable sometimes I just wanted to take a picture of them and instagram it or something. They’re the cherry on the cake.

Yes, I pretty much loved every character in this book because they’re just beautifully constructed.

I totally recommend it even if you’re gonna watch the movie or not. You HAVE to read it. Did I mention the cute illustrations in it?
