#SoaringScores #catchup
I have not seen Black Sails that #ANationOfThieves is from but I understand it is a prequel of sorts to Treasure Island. I read my older brother‘s copy when I was in grade school. It was this cover. #nostalgia

CrowCAH Aye aye the series is a prequel to Treasure Island! 1mo
Cinfhen That cover is pretty iconic 🙌🏻love it....but truthfully I‘ve never read the book in its entirety 🙊 1mo

Black Sails was great pirate 🏴‍☠️ research for me, as they stayed fairly true to Golden Age of Piracy and introduced historical figures as characters.

This was a recent #BookOutlet find...

This one sounds interesting! And, it took #ANationOfThieves to devise a plan to swindle art collectors out of millions of dollars. #SoaringScores

In 2013, a letter written by Admiral Lord Nelson was sold at auction for £,000. In the letter, Nelson describes the French as “thieves, murderers, oppressors and infidels”. A little unfair, and the French probably though much the same of the Brits. Still, the letter shows that Nelson clearly considered France to be #ANationOfThieves

This starts out as #ANationOfThieves. Charlie is a 13 y/o boy living on the streets of London (1889), he knows quite a lot of thieving tricks. Charlie also is an 18 y/o girl, who is the last necromancer in the UK, and hides as a boy in the slums.

City of Thieves: A Novel | David Benioff

#SoaringScores #ANationOfThieves This book, set in Leningrad during WWII is the story of two boys tasked with procuring a dozen fresh eggs for the Czar‘s chef in order to bake a wedding cake for his daughter‘s upcoming wedding. It‘s a really great read. Clever and well constructed.

Texreader I agree. This is a good book 1mo
cathipink You know he's one of the creators of the Game of Thrones tv series too, right? 🙂 1mo
CrowCAH Ah, thieves of eggs 🥚! Neato 1mo
Cinfhen I am aware @cathipink and I‘m pretty sure fans personally blamed him for the disastrous final season of GOT 🙄 I think he‘s working on a Star Wars script now. He‘s a good writer @Texreader I think City of Thieves would translate well to film @CrowCAH 1mo
Mdargusch I have read this and really liked it too! 1mo

Dream Thieves | Maggie Stiefvater
post image

#SoaringScores Day 11: #ANationOfThieves reminded me of this fantasy series. What a brilliant concept, these dream thieves, allowing one to fashion worlds in dreams and plucking them out from trees, planting them firmly in this world – giving birth to creations that are half-real and half-nightmares. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-8Hn

CrowCAH Sounds very interesting- dream thieves. 1mo
