Waiting on Wednesday #59

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases. Head on over there to take part or to check out all the other fabulous books that people are looking forward to reading!

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
Published on 7th June 2012 by Bloomsbury Children's Books

Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance. Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire.

Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in.

It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.

I'm a huge Robin Hood fan and knew instantly that I wanted to read this book when I first heard about it.  It's a spin on the traditional tale but features a female heroine.  All the reviews I've seen so far of the book have been positive and I'm so excited for it's release that I'm counting down the days!

  1. I know I'm a bit late on catching up with your blog, but I was really looking forward to this one too! Have you got a copy already? I read it almost as soon as I received my copy and really enjoyed it.


Thank you for leaving me a comment. I love reading them!
