"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
As most of you know I have never done the Waiting on Wednesday meme but after seeing so many book bloggers doing so I knew I needed to jump on the bandwagon. Today will be my first day. Whoo!

Book #3 Heist Society
Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: February 5th 2013 by Hyperion Books for Children
Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of lovable 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.
WHY? I have read the previous books in the series and totally loved them. When I heard I was going to have to wait over a year to read Perfect Scoundrels I was like "Aaaaaaaaghhh!" This series is amazing and I am so counting down the days until it's out on shelves. I must say the cover is beautiful. Look closely at her glasses. ^__^
So what book are YOU waiting on this Wednesday?
