Earlier today I ran across a list of favorite fictional thieves put together by Julie over at A Small Accomplishment. Love the name of her blog, by the way! Well, you can imagine how my mind immediately took off, conjuring up the familiar, battered faces of my own favorite ne'er-do-wells. So just for fun, here they are (in alphabetical order), the top five, with all their expansive charm, dubious glory, and inescapable claims on my heart:
The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
The Song of the Lioness quartet by Tamora Pierce
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Westmark trilogy by Lloyd Alexander
Who are your favorite thieves? I'd love to add a few more rascals to the list...
