The Truth About Books: Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter


It is week 4 of the GGReadathon! WOOOHOO 2 weeks ( I think...its late) till United We Spy!
This weeks book is Only the Good Spy Young! If you haven't read this book be warned:
there are SPOILERS! Now lets discuss!

~Only the Good Spy Young~


Caitlyn Crowe
I think Only the Good Spy Young has got to be my favorite GG book at this point in out Readathon (I say that because the 5th is my favorite this is second place)

Taherah Abbas
Yes!!! Remember how last time we talked about GG being dark?

Caitlyn Crowe
Yeeeeees

Taherah Abbas
Weeeelll I think this one especially goes very VERY dark into the series with the Circle and learning about Blackthorne

Caitlyn Crowe
AND MR SOLOMON HOLY CRAP

Taherah Abbas
O_O OMG SO MUCH PAIN

Caitlyn Crowe
I started rocking and was like, " I can't believe this. No. NO. I cannot believe this! THIS IS A LIE! TELL ME ITS A LIIIIEEEEEE!!!!" and then it was and I was sane again

Taherah Abbas
BUTBUTBUT THE END HIM BEING IN A COMA

Caitlyn Crowe
And Aunt Abby's reaction (that MAY be the next book) and and and and Zach and AH just AH way WAY too many emotions

Taherah Abbas
IKR?! Can we talk about Blackthorne

Caitlyn Crowe
Yes! I was just astounded when I got to the part where it was said it was a school for assassins and NOT spies! I mean how the f did they become such good spies then!?!?!

Taherah Abbas
I think part of being assassin=being a good spy. You know like before the killing they have to stake the people they're killing out and stuff

Caitlyn Crowe
BUT THEN THE TAILING STUFF!!!!!!!  And the penny swappy thing! And Zachary's acting skills! I mean come on! I get the other stuff but the acting?

Taherah Abbas
Zach is Zach. He WOULD know how it all works especially since HIS MOM IS PART OF THE CIRCLE WHICH BTW I DID NOT SEE COMING

Caitlyn Crowe
It shames me to admit this but I never even thought Zach had a mom....or a dad...or a family...he's just Zach. He exists because he wills it to be so

Taherah Abbas
coughs same...he's just Zach...
And I realize you just said that
Ignore me

Caitlyn Crowe
lol okay XD how about we talk about the f*beep beep beep beep* of a man Agent Townsend?

Taherah Abbas
UGH SOSOSOSO ANNOYING

Caitlyn Crowe
I hate him almost as much as I hate Blake from the Lux series (Jennifer L Armentrout)

Taherah Abbas
I hate Blake more but yeah I get it. I was so happy when they worked the truth serum on him though. I was like WIN YOU GO GIRLS

Caitlyn Crowe
RIGHT! That earned Liz MAJOR badass points!

Taherah Abbas
YEAH TOTALLY

Caitlyn Crowe
OH! And the Operatives breaking into the Sublevels SO COOL

Taherah Abbas
Yupyup it was all very spy-y or well more spy-y then it already is

Caitlyn Crowe
These books make me wanna be a spy while at the same time crushing all my hopes and dreams of being one cuzz lets face it I am not nearly as badass as any of then nor anywhere near as smart

Taherah Abbas
RIGHT?! It would be awesome and cool but then I see the stuff they do...and I realize I am reaaaally unobservant in life

Caitlyn Crowe
lol I was in DC when I reread this series and I am ashamed to admit this but I tried to do some of Mr. Solomon's exercise things...I failed epicly

Taherah Abbas
I get distracted/zone out way too easily

Caitlyn Crowe
Aaaaaaand back on track! I really REALLY hate that Townsend used Cammie to lure Mr. Solomon out of hiding

Taherah Abbas
I just really hate Townsend

Caitlyn Crowe
Okay so I only reread the first chapter then looked up the rest as a refresher online (I know BAD ME) and I have to get this out there LOVE CAMMIE AND ZACH THEY ARE SO CUTE AND ITS SNOWING AND SHES LIKE YOU LOOK COLD AND HES LIKE YEAH WELL I GAVE MY WARM JACKET TO A GIRL AND SHES LIKE THATS STUPID AND HES LIKE YEAH BUT IT LOOKED MUCH BETTER ON YOU AND yeah...

Taherah Abbas
I TOTALLY FANGIRLED WHEN ZACH CAME AND IT WAS CUTE AND ADORABLE AND I LOVE BEX A LOT

Caitlyn Crowe
Lets talk about Cammie's dad!

Taherah Abbas
I really love the guy. It would've been awesome to have met him

Caitlyn Crowe
I also love his relationship with Solomon!

Taherah Abbas
BROMANCE

Caitlyn Crowe
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean they would do anything for each other! I actually kinda hope Mr. Solomon becomes a father figure for Cammie (not in the I'm dating your mom way but in the I'm bffl's with your dead dad and bffs with your mom way)

Taherah Abbas
Confession time: I may have shipped her mom and Solomon when we first met him (Before Abby and all the stuff we learned about her Dad)
But I agree he's like an uncle XD

Caitlyn Crowe
Really? scrunches up nose Confession time: at first I didn't even ship him with Abby

Taherah Abbas
shrugs Cammie's mom seemed lonely and we didn't really hear much about Cammie's dad.

Caitlyn Crowe
I WANNA KNOW HOW THEY MET CAMMIE'S PARENTS I MEAN

Taherah Abbas
Dear Ally Carter, would you be willing to make a novella about them first meeting?

Caitlyn Crowe
Dear Ally Carter will you right a series about all of their children so I can be happy and keep on living in this world of magical magicness?

Taherah Abbas
XD I would like that but it seems like it would be awkward but I am looking forward to her new book Embassy Row (which looks AWESOME)

Caitlyn Crowe
YYYEEEESSSSS I love how badass all her heroines are!

Taherah Abbas
EPIC

Caitlyn Crowe
And on that note I rate this book 5 STARS

Taherah Abbas
AGREED

  1. OOOOOH What's embassy row about? You're chat was really cute and funny, but I disagree on one point- The GG series never felt dark to me.
