Agency #01: A Spy in the House

As someone who is always looking for a good mystery, this book was a surprisingly excellent find. Reading this book is just a lot of fun! Mary is a wonderfully feisty lead, and you'll grow to love her as you try to figure out who the real culprit is. You'll want to have the next book on hand so you can start it as soon as you finish with the first!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Book Thief

islandwahinee, September 21, 2011

This book is simply beautiful. I put off reading it for several years because I never felt I was in quite the right mood to read about the Holocaust, but now I regret that I didn't read it sooner. Told from the perspective of death, Zusak wraps you into the story of a little girl growing up in Nazi Germany, and make a difficult subject become real. Ironically, it is through death's descriptions that you are able to see the true beauty and value of life. A heavy but inspiring read loaded with meaning, it is a masterful work that anyone would benefit from reading -- it is by no stretch of the imagination just a young adult book.

Uncommon Criminals (a Heist Society Novel) (Heist Society Novels) by Ally Carter
Uncommon Criminals (a Heist Society Novel) (Heist Society Novels)

The perfect sequel to Heist Society, Uncommon Criminals is a wonderful read for anyone who enjoys a witty heist adventure. Following Kat and her crew is fantastic fun, and you'll never be able to guess what will happen next! It's a perfect blend of action, comedy, mystery and, of course, some boy problems.

Ally Carter is one of my absolute favorite authors, and I think this might be her best book yet. I always recommend her books to any friend who is looking for something new to read, and I haven't had anyone not love her yet!
