Death Prefers Blondes | Caleb Roehrig
Teenage socialite Margo Manning leads a dangerous double life. By day, she dodges the paparazzi while soaking up California sunshine. By night, however, she dodges security cameras and armed guards, pulling off high-stakes cat burglaries with a team of flamboyant young men. In and out of disguise, shes in all the headlines. But then Margos personal life takes a sudden, dark turn, and a job to end all jobs lands her crew in deadly peril. Overnight, everything shes ever counted on is put at risk. Backs against the wall, the resourceful thieves must draw on their special skills to survive. But can one rebel heiress and four kickboxing drag queens withstand the slings and arrows of truly outrageous fortune? Or will a mounting sea of troubles end themfor good?

I started this some time ago and just finished it, through no fault of the book. Life kind of got in the way and I needed comfort reads with no surprises. This was well-done, good backstories and character development for all the major players. There‘s a little twist and what looks like a second twist but it‘s not. Whew! 😉 The comments by LibrarianRyan are spot on (Litsy isn‘t letting me tag)!

LibrarianRyan Yeah. Glad you liked it. I thought it was just a fun romp. Brain Candy if you will. 2w

This book was so much fun. It is very inclusive. Margo is bi, and the rest of the team is gay. And it just is. No explanation needed, no excuses, it just is, deal with it. (Love that). It also hits every point to be labeled a SAGA (sexual and gender acceptance) read.
I hope the author makes it a series for new adults. I could see the team becoming spies, or secret operatives. I think they could do it, forwards, backwards, and in heels.

Day 21: #newrelease

I‘ve heard a lot about this book in the last week, and when I found out it‘s about a group of drag queen thieves that pull off incredible heists, I knew I had to find a copy ASAP!

@howjessreads #currentlyreading

LibrarianRyan I‘m half way through and really enjoying it. 2mo
pasiphae_reads @librarianryan I‘m almost 100 pages in and I like it!! The writing is so good, which surprised me because I‘ve never heard of this author before (is it his debut?) and yet it‘s so well told so far! (edited) 2mo

I remember what this was like in high school.

Johanna414 Lol I had a 10th grade girl hanging around my desk today talking about finding a summer job - “The only place I won‘t work is McDonalds - there two girls there I absolutely hate. I‘d rather die than work with them. Mrs. Ross, do you need a babysitter?!” Um... no thanks, dear. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @Johanna414 🤣🤣🤨. I agree. 2mo

Do not leave me u supervised in BN. The tagged book is actually a gift for my aunt as I already have a puppy chewed copy. #bookhaul.

jpmcwisemorgan What are the Labyrinth ones?! I was reading the tagged book but I had to take it back to the library. I need to check it out again. 2mo
Lova Yes I want to know about the Labyrinth ones too! 2mo

LibrarianRyan @jpmcwisemorgan @EttaReading @lova I think they are a sequel/prequel to the movie. The blurb says how goblin king cane to reign. 2mo
GypsyKat Labyrinth graphic novels?!?!? OH. MY. GOD!!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 2mo
LibrarianRyan @GypsyKat they look good. There is also a 13-14 yo manga called It wasn‘t horrible. 2mo
GypsyKat @LibrarianRyan I‘m not into manga myself, but I did see that a volume 3 of this series is coming out soon! 2mo
jpmcwisemorgan I‘m going to see if I can find them! 2mo

I‘m trying not to kill her, but I just bought the bottom two yesterday. I hadn‘t even posted them to Litsy yet. And the tagged book was in a book hugger and she chewed the hugger off. And I found my book sleeve under the table. This was not on the floor but on the table behind the couch.

Yesterday she chewed up my Apple Pencil. I have never had a dog that chews this much. And it does not seem to matter how many chew toys she has. Uggghh 😤😤

Ashley_Nicoletto Ohhhh man. That‘s impossible. My first dog was a chewer and it was a nightmare. I‘m sorry for the loss of your books. 3mo
Cailey_Mac 😧😧 oh no!!! Maybe he‘s going through some sort of teething? My cat Salem will chew the very edge of books whenever I put them on the bed if I‘m reorganizing them or dusting my shelves 3mo

KatieDid927 Oh noooo 3mo
TrishB Mind chews a lot, but thankfully has never attempted my books! 3mo
Nute I don't even know what to say. Feeling the blues over this! It's a good thing that puppies and kittens are incredibly CUTE, and give us so much joy (outside of a moment like this). 3mo
Lindy 😱tough times at your house. Hope it‘s the last time for this behaviour. 3mo
mrp27 😱 Hope the chewing gets better! 3mo
LibrarianRyan @TrishB I‘m not sure if it‘s the books or the huggers and sleeves. Because this is the second time she has chewed a book but last time it was also in a sleeve. And about two weeks ago she chewed the snaps off two of my huggers. I know she has a thing for fabric. Vet says it should get better after she is fixed. @Cailey_Mac (edited) 3mo
mrozzz Oh nooooooo. She is really cute but that‘s rough 😣 3mo
TheBookAddict Oh no! 🤦🏽‍♀️ 😞 3mo
Jadams1776 I have a chewer as well - I have bought her every kind of toy imaginable and she still chews up my flip flops, books, anything she can get her sneaky little paws on. She‘ll even pull this trick where she lays a toy on top of my book and then gnaws the corners where I can‘t see her. She got slightly better after she was fixed, but I‘ve still lost a pair of flip flops or two. 3mo
LibrarianRyan @Jadams1776 I too have no flip flops. I had ti bop her with my work shoes to keep her from going for those. 3mo

Margo Manning is a wealthy teen socialite leading a crew of teen drag queens who commit elaborate heists. Margo reminds a lot of Veronica Mars. FYI, lots of sexy times in this one.

My TBR is frequently disrupted by whatever comes off hold at the library. And so, this is all of a sudden up next: drag queen cat burglars? Yes please.

The stage is set...the pop-up bookstore is ready for customers, the panel rooms are ready for deep thoughts, laughter & everything in between, the selfie backdrop is ready for its Instagram moment. Super excited to host this great event at our school. If you‘re in Chicago, need something to do & love YA, you should stop by. The festival runs from 10-5 & it‘s totally free!!! 19 authors—panels, writing workshops and more! Should be a great day.

The books I ordered for the #mythsandlegendsswap have all arrived. I might have ordered some books for me too. 🤷‍♀️ I mean, what are you supposed to do when it says, hey, buy x amount and get free shipping? Clearly I was meant to buy more books.

I have the tagged book out from the library and it‘s due back so I guess I‘d better get to reading. 😉

robinb Your thinking sounds perfectly logical to me! I do that all the time! 🤣🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo

This book was so much fun and action packed. Margo leads a double life. During the day she is a teenage socialite and at night she is a high end thief. But when her life takes a dangerous turn she is in a fight to save her life. With her band of friends who work with her and dress up like drag queens to do their heist they are ready to do their biggest mission yet. Even if they may get caught. I am hoping for more books about Margo!

C.Perone Oooo that does sound fun! 6mo
