Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
(I am back from my one-week vacation, two different best friends’ weddings, and some quality beach time on the east coast! And I have so much to share! I missed last week’s A Good Week in Books, so I will have plenty to share this Sunday. And I read two books on my vacation and will post some reviews soon, too!)
This week, I am waiting on Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3) by Ally Carter (2/5/13):

Description on Good Reads:
“Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it’s that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting—or stealing—whatever they want.

No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale’s family, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother’s billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there’s no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won’t let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother’s will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company’s fortune. So instead of being the heir—this time, Hale might be the mark.

Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she’s willing to save her boyfriend’s company if it means losing the boy.”

So, I absolutely adore these books! They’re super fast reads. I love the spy-thriller aspect to them. I love the hinted at romance. And I cannot get enough of Katarina! She is just so sassy and brave, I don’t get how anyone cannot love her. Carter has a huge following of fans for her other spy series, which I still need to get into (I have book 1 waiting to be read soon!), and if the other series is anything like these books, I know I will be a fan. But really, the description sounds amazing. And I love that all these covers all match each other without any icky re-published covers mixing up the prettiness that is each book lined up with the next on my shelf! And how cool are the reflected images in the sunglasses?
