    tl;dr: Unabashedly queer and diverse, full of the importance of found familes, and a little bit about stealing from the rich to give to the poor! Death Prefer Blondes was a hell of a ride! Drag queens, art heists, found families, and of course some drama. The high stakes, and thri...

    So many stereotypes, so little time. Death Prefers Blondes is yet another promising premise failing to live up to its potential. There are a few things that are great about this book but they aren?t enough to lift it out of the morass. Drag queens, socialites, robbery, and revenge sh...

    I had positives and negatives about this book (including what I felt was a pretty major plothole), but for the most part, I really enjoyed this and thought it delivered what I was expecting from it. Full (video) review here: http://www.thebookrat.com/2019/02/dea... ...

    I've been trying to think of something to say about this for the past week other than just 'it's good, I liked it' but ...it's good ...and I liked it. I mean it's a fun heist book filled with diverse characters, what's not to like? I would definitely recommend it and I can't wait for t...

    Extremely fun and successful at everything it's aiming for - definitely going to be my #1 rec for people who ask for books like Ocean's 11 or 8, which is actually a really common request. ...

    I need to write a full review, but for now: OMG Updated Review: Caleb Roehrig?s Death Prefers Blondes is a fantastic foray into the world of sophisticated crimes?all committed by teenagers. Margo Manning is well known for who her father is, the CEO of Manning Corporation. Bu...

    Margo Manning is a teenage socialite who acts like Lindsay Lohan by day and James Bond by night. To most people she?s just another useless spoiled and entitled rich kid. But what only a select few know is that Margo is also a thief?and a damn good one. She may have started small, j...

    A heist-y book with drag queens, I?m here for it. I liked Margo and her friends. They?re smart and fierce af and absolutely loyal to each other. I enjoyed getting their own stories and that everyone had a specific and different reason for participating. And hooray for all of th...

    Caleb Roehrig's third novel is a real rule-breaker in a lot of ways. Not only because it's got a lot of key stylistic differences from his first two books - it's much less murder-oriented, being a heist story; it's told in third-person POVs by an ensemble cast, with the unquestionable ...

    Take a feisty socialite heiress, add a handful of drag queens, sprinkle in a bit of jewel thievery, a hefty dose of Ocean's Eleven, a diverse cast, bi and gay romance subplots, and some Hamlet allusions, and you've got yourself DEATH PREFERS BLONDES. The pacing is a touch uneven at...

    This review originally appeared on Novel Ink. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. As soon as I saw Death Prefers Blondes being pitched as Ocean?s 8 meets RuPaul?s Drag Race, I...

    I was immediately hooked at the premise of a heist novel starring teenage drag queens, and it only went up from there. There's love, sex, violence, friendship, redemption, and huge helpings of both snark and bonding. If you're looking for a fast-paced wild ride of a novel--look no ...

    So good!!!! This took me a while to read because of my general reading slump but I really did love this. The twists had me genuinely shocked and I honestly love heists so there's nothing to even dislike in this one. All the characters were great and I just loved it. ...

    Thank goodness I am finally done with this. If you like heist novels and are okay with not knowing what is happening for the first quarter of the book, you might like this. I had such a hard time connecting to this novel. I did not like the characters at all in the beginning and by the...

    A fun and funny heist story. Unfortunately, this does get a bit lengthy and the book suffers as a result. I received an ecopy of this through netgalley; however all opinions are my own. ...

    FINISHED: 1/24/19 Thank you to Macmillan for an advanced reading copy! I was a big fan of Caleb?s White Rabbit (I?m still meaning to read Last Seen Leaving), so Death Prefers Blondes was something I?ve been looking forward to. And, I mean, with a title like that, who isn?t i...

    Another win for Caleb. Loved it, the story, the characters, the plans, the twists, EVERYTHING! I love how they were obviously all paired up but I didn't mind it, not one bit. They were all lethal cinnamon rolls and I love them all! ...

    This book is making the rounds right now, and I keep seeing a bunch of the same comparisons. It's a little RuPaul's Drag Race, a little Ocean's 11/8, a little Hamlet, and a little Bling Ring, and I say, YES! to all of it. ? Pro: I say this EVERY time I finish a Roehrig book. He d...

    This book is fabulous from start to finish, and it's exactly what I hoped for (and more)! There's a diverse, all-queer cast of characters, all of which have a clearly developed back story, and the plot itself is incredibly well-paced. I was expecting this to be a fun action-packed stor...

    This book had me hooked from the first page. Nonstop action and amazing characters, funny as hell lots of twists and turns. I'm a sucker for found families, and queer found families are my absolute favorite. I laughed and cried and zoomed through 300+ pages in one day because I couldn'...

    Rupaul's Drag Race meets Ocean's 8 in Caleb Roehrig's upcoming Death Prefers Blondes . This upcoming YA novel was really fun to read, folks. The non-stop action at times was slightly overwhelming, but overall Death Prefers Blondes is a fun, fast-paced, multidimensional read, that wi...

    I very rarely read books written by men, but Caleb Roehrig has been a favorite since his first book. I?ll read anything by him and probably enjoy it. I more than enjoyed this, I loved it. It was so tense and exciting and fun and emotional. And gay. And diverse. While some of it stret...
