I's Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter
I read this book at the beginning of the year, but I recently read the sequel so here is a review of the first book in the series!
The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school teaches advanced martial arts in PE, chemistry always consists of the latest in chemical warfare, and everyone breaks CIA codes for extra credit in computer class. So in truth, Gallagher Academy might posit itself as a school for geniuses but what they really mean is spies. But what happens when a Gallagher Girl falls for a boy who doesn't have a code name? Cammie Morgan may be fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve a piece of uncooked spaghetti), but the Gallagher Academy hasn’t prepared her for 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, and track him through a mall without him ever being the wiser, but can she have a regular relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her? Cammie may be an elite spy in training, but in her sophomore year, she's doing something riskier than ever --she's falling in love.
So, like I said, I read this books earlier this year. I don't normally like books that are about this type of stuff, but I really enjoyed this book. Ally Carter had me wanting more, and I am almost positive I read this all in one sitting. And, if I remember correctly I was sitting on a freezing cold uncomfortable leather couch, the WHOLE time. So, if you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it, it will have you wanting more!
It is currently 10:00 pm and I am really tired because of Christmas, so there will probably be a review of the second book in this series tomorrow. I may also review Devilish by Maureen Johnson and The Melting of Maggie Bean by Tricia Rayburn (if I finish it).
Silence is silver, but Books are golden...
