So FREAKING excited for Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society 2) by Ally Carter

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 simply… 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, 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.

Last night on Twitter, Ally tweeted that she was excited about today's blog post.  I thought that can only mean one thing, NEW BOOK COVER!!  I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book to come out. Heist Society was one of my favorites (and Kit's) of 2010, and is listed in both of our Favorite Reads of all time!  If you haven't read it, you must go get it NOW (my review).

Make sure to run over to Ally's blog and give her a great big cyber hug for the awesome cover.  They've done a fantastic job (again)! I love Kat's haircut in the picture, and I like the reflection of the emerald in her sunglasses.  So cute!!

Uncommon Criminals releases June 21....way too far away!



  1. I really need to read Heist Society already! The second book is looking good too.

  2. Ahhh it will be out on my birthday! That's going to make an awesome self-gift! Love the cover!

  3. AH! I loved Heist Society! SO SO SO awesome!

  4. So excited! While Heist Society definitely left room for a sequel, I wasn't sure there would be one.

    Does anyone else think Kat kind of looks like Dianna Agron (Quinn on Glee) with a wig?

  5. I am so freaking excited too! Heist Society was soooo much fun! I can't wait for another adventure with Kat and Hale!

  6. EEEEK!! I know!! I'm just so excited!!

  7. Can't wait !!!
