A list of books with lock picks. Because apparently I read a lot of these...
Also, lock picks tend to equal criminals. And we all love criminals. I mean, look at Kaz. Isn't he just the cutest little killer?
Books With Lock Picks:
The Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter
Ok, no criminals in this one. Spies. But super cool spies.
Brother Band Chronicles by John Flanagan
Also no criminals. (I mean, they sort of are for the first couple books...)
Jesper is a thief...sort of? He steals things, but just because he is amused by the fact that he can steal things. He always gives it right back. In fact, he usually stands there with a proud look on his face like, "Look, I stole this bracelet right off your arm! Isn't that cool?"
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Ha! Finally one with thieves! Criminals! (And the legendary Kaz)
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Disappointing criminals, but still criminals. (There was too much talking and not enough...actually stealing things?)
Books That I Think Have Lock Picks, But I Honestly Can't Remember....
Skullduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy
I feel like this should have lock picks, but it also has magic so did they actually pick the lock or did they just magic it open?
The Ascendance Trilogy by Jennifer A. Nielson
Sage does a lot of thief-things, but I can't remember if he actually picks a lock...I think he does in one of the books, but he might have just stolen the keys off the guard.
Poison Study by Maria V Snyder
Did she pick locks? I have this strange feeling that she picked locks, but help me...I have no memory
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
I know she broke into a house at some point, but she may have just...opened an unlocked door? Climbed through a window? Knocked?
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
I am pretty certain that one of them has lock picks...They break into places...or does she also just use her magic?
Do you know of any books with lock picks? What do you think of Six of Crows? Do you know if any of these books have lock picks?
