Waiting on Wednesday (June 1)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.

This week:
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 . . . 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 and 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.

Published by Hyperion
Release Date: June 21, 2011

Uh, what?! How was I unaware that this was being released this summer? I really enjoyed Heist Society, so I'll definitely be grabbing a copy. In other news, I have a pretty horrid sunburn that's been making me feel super lazy. The upside to that is I've accomplished a lot of reading (hurrah). What are you waiting on this wednesday?

I haven't even read Heist Society but this looks good! Their covers are so eye catching for some reason.
