I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school-that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies. Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she’s an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”-but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her?

Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission-falling in love.

The Gallagher Girls series is just fantabulous. And yes, I did just make that word up. It’s got awesome secret agent girls, cute boys, and a whole lot of covert operations going on, so how can you not love that? So go! Buy the book for FREE and start reading this book in time for the upcoming last and final book of the series, United We Spy.

Yep, that’s correct! Ally Carter just announced (like literally, a couple hours ago) that she has sold a new book series called Embassy Row!

Here’s a quick excerpt!

This exciting new series focuses on Grace, who can best be described as a daredevil, an Army brat, and a rebel. She is also the only granddaughter of perhaps the most powerful ambassador in the world, and Grace has spent every summer of her childhood running across the roofs of Embassy Row. Now, at age sixteen, she’s come back to stay— in order to solve the mystery of her mother’s death. In the process, she uncovers an international conspiracy of unsettling proportions, and must choose her friends and watch her foes carefully if she and the world are to be saved.

Are ya’ll in shock and excitement? Because I am. I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS SERIES TO FINALLY BE PUBLISHED. I have loved Ally Carter’s books for the lONGEST TIME and okay. ANOTHER SPY SERIES OKAY I AM COMPLETELY FINE WITH THAT.

Top Ten Tuesday {3}: Books Featuring Travel In Some Way

top ten tuesday banner

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is about…

Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way

Amy and Rogers Epic Detour

 

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour was the FIRST book that popped into my head when I saw what this TTT’s theme was. Because the entire book is a road trip! I love this book. It’s so entertaining yet heartfelt, and it’s one of my favorite books. Definitely recommend this to fans of road trips or books in general.

 

 

Anna and the French Kiss

 

Anna and the French Kiss is one of my FAVORITE books of all time, so it’s definitely gotta be here. This book takes place in PARIS! Or as they say, Pah-ree. Yeah, whatever, I’m a dork, but go read this book! It’s cute, fun, and just plain awesome.

 

 

meant to be

 

Meant to Be is probably one of the most adorable books we (Shirley and I) have ever read. The characters take a school trip to London (which I have always wanted to go to, sigh) and it’s so great that London is as big of a part of the book as the characters are. They visit so many places there that it made me want to visit London so bad!

 

 

Paper Towns by John Green

 

Paper Towns. Just freaking hilarious. The road trip part takes place in the last third of the book, and that part by far is my absolute favorite. It’s hilarious (um, hello, a black dude wearing a Confederate t-shirt?) and just so freaking fun. The boys in the book are absolutely crazy on their road trip, and it made me love them so much.

 

 

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

 

Yes, of course I would put The Fault in Our Stars here! Hazel and my love Augustus travel to Amsterdam, and their entire trip was just the sweetest thing. Although… it ended up turning bittersweet after, didn’t it…. But no matter! TFiOS is an absolute favorite, so it’s in my top ten!

 

 

Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

 

I’m just putting Perfect Scoundrels here, but basically, the entire Heist Society series is full of travels. Kat and the gang end up going all over Europe, from England to Italy to France, and then going back to the US. All thanks to Hale and his private jet, of course. Oh, and can’t forget to mention Ally Carter’s other series, the Gallagher Girls series, that also features a lot of traveling!

 

 

The Statistical Probability of Love at First SIght

 

Although not an absolute favorite, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was nice to read, and it also has another trip to London. It belongs here in my top ten though, because I think it’s just so adorable that she meets this wonderful guy at an airport and they end up on the same plane going to the same place!

 

 

The Edge of Never

 

The Edge of Never is insanely popular on Goodreads, and although I never loved it as much as many others, I really enjoyed reading the road trip aspect of the book. It starts off as a trip on a bus to anywhere, but then the characters take matters into their own hands and create their own fun road trip.

 

 

book for blog

 

This is Cathy’s choice! In Carpe Diem, Vassar Spore’s life is turned upside down when her aunt forces her to on a quest through SE Asia where she has crazy adventures and falls in love with a cowboy!

 

 

 

Don't Stop Now

 

Although I didn’t like the book, Shirley loved Don’t Stop Now.
I (Shirley) loved this book so so much! It’s obviously not everyone’s taste (as seen above -_-), but personally I thought it was a really fun read and I loved that it was contemporary too! Like okay come on. She’s going on a road trip to track down her missing friend with her best guy friend who she’s in love with. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THAT.

So here are our Top Ten! Let us know some of your favorite books featuring travels, road trips, etc!

Cover/Title Reveal: United We Spy by Ally Carter

United We Spy by Ally Carter

United We Spy by Ally Carter
Series: Gallagher Girls #6
Publication Date: September 17th 2013

Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.

So I JUST saw this on Goodreads but…

IT HAS BEEN REVEALED! The 6th book in the Gallagher Girls series! AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!

I am so freaking excited right now! I got so happy when I saw this cover and title because uh, it’s ALLY freaking CARTER! God, I cannot wait until this book comes out (September 2013! Why is it so far away?!?) but at the same time I want to cry. Because United We Spy will be the LAST AND FINAL BOOK of the Gallagher Girls series. I know, I can’t believe the series is ending either. BUT, since this is Ally Carter we’re talking about here, I know this final book will be an amazing end to one of the best series ever!
