Hey girls! If y'all have not had the great privilege of reading the Gallagher Girl series by Ally Carter (who also wrote Heist Society), you definitely should. I did not find any topics covering the GG books so I thought I'd write one. For those who have read the books, what do you think about them? My favorite one of the whole series was Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy! How about y'all?


P.S. I am brand new to this site! I still don't know how everything works. Help would be appreciated. :)

I love this series (and Heist Society)!! I have the fourth book but haven't yet read it. I've also gotten to meet Ally twice and she's so sweet!

I've only read the first two books.

They were okay, but I didn't really love them. It seemed like in both books there was this big buildup to something I didn't even understand, and then she learns a lesson I didn't understand from it all.

Plus, in both, she

I know what you mean about the build up, for for me in book three things started to get really interesting.

Oh my God.

I was just at Borders and guess what I found?? Our beloved Gallagher Girl Book #2 Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy -- on the BARGAIN shelf!!! I was so shocked and freaking confused. I mean, how the heck did our Chameleon end up there?! The last place she should be, by the way...

Anyways, so...urgh...

Hey everyone! I also love Ally Carter's Gallagher series. I only got the chance to read the series this summer because I had a lot of problems buying the book as it was always sold out here in my country. Exactly just like how hard it is for me to buy Meg's books as well. But of course I'm always persistent :D

Anyways, I'm currently reading Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover and still searching for a copy of Only the Good Spy Young. And yeah, also Meg's Abandon-totally in search already. :D

How I wish that is possible! Give me your book! :074: haha. kidding! :lol:

Zac honestly confuses me. I want to dig through that had of his and know what's going on his mind. :D But yeah, I love him. And like what you said, He is indeed the best!

There's another guy? ...Eggbert? Wow. Cam surely is a boy-magnet. :a_smil08:
I like the title! Esp. the first one you made. Totally cover worthy. :)) Ally Carter would love that. :D
Thanks for the spoilers Mel! I'm now itching to find the book asap. :hyper:

Yes!!
With his mysterious-ness and hotness! :heartbeat: :wub:

This the GG website B) Gallagher Girl WebsiteI'm a member but I forgot my account stuff...again. So I'll do another one.*shrugs*

It's sort of cool because it show the point of view of her friends and Zach during "Out of sight Out of Time".

Did I mention I :heartbeat: LOVE :wub: these series?!


One out of a lot favorite moment:
When he held Cammie's hand in front of Josh (i think was his name? Sorry I sort of forgot haven't read them in a long time :icon_redface: ) And Josh's looked like he was jealous .Then Cammie didn't know what to do..... :aiwebs_001: I loved it! Serves him right!!!! He made her sad when she saw him with the other girl. (sorry forgot her name too) *looks smug* :badgrin: I'm bad... :074: *laughs evilly*
