Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
A world battered by climate shift and war turns to an ancient method of keeping peace: the exchange of hostages. The Children of Peace – sons and daughters of kings and presidents and generals – are raised together in small, isolated schools called Preceptures. There, they learn history and political theory, and are taught to gracefully accept what may well be their fate: to die if their countries declare war.Greta Gustafsen Stuart, Duchess of Halifax and Crown Princess of the Pan-Polar Confederation, is the pride of the North American Precepture. Learned and disciplined, Greta is proud of her role in keeping the global peace, even though, with her country controlling two-thirds of the world’s most war-worthy resource — water — she has little chance of reaching adulthood alive.Enter Elián Palnik, the Precepture’s newest hostage and biggest problem. Greta’s world begins to tilt the moment she sees Elián dragged into the school in chains. The Precepture’s insidious surveillance, its small punishments and rewards, can make no dent in Elián, who is not interested in dignity and tradition, and doesn’t even accept the right of the UN to keep hostages.What will happen to Elián and Greta as their two nations inch closer to war?
After years of hearing about this, I read the first book in this series only last month, but I really liked it. I’m looking forward to reading the next one.
Again, I only read the first book in this series last month, but I’m so intrigued about what’s gonna happen next. I think I will read this soon.
I read the first book of this series at the end of last year, and I loved it. I will definitely read the next two books in this series, but I’m not sure if I will read the next book that was written by someone different.
Most fantasy fans out there have read this series, I read the first one and I really really liked it. I will definitely continue on with the series, but I don’t think I will do it anytime soon.

3) Sleeping with other People (September 11, 2015) – Trailer
Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as two romantic failures whose years of serial infidelity and self-sabotage have led them to swear that their relationship will remain strictly platonic. But can love still bloom while you’re sleeping with other people?
This is the kind of comedy I found funny and it has a great cast that can actually be funny and deliver great one-liners, so I’m realy excited to watch. Also, it looks like a new take in a movie we have seen a lot of times before.

I had heard a lot of great things about this book, and after finally reading it, I can say I wasn’t dissapointed. This book has a complex and unique world and magic system, as well as a really great writing style.
