Wishlist Wednesday #21

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)

 Scarlet - A. C. Gaughen 

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.
Doesn't this book sound amazing? I love the tale of Robin Hood so this new little adaptation sounds great and love the fact that one of the band of thieves is a strong woman. This sounds so so good and I will definitely be buying it after Christmas (don't want anything lost in the fuss of Christmas post right now so will have to wait!). Have you read this book? How did you find it? Let me know!

  4. Ahhh! I LOVED Scarlet! The written style of it was so different, but it communicated Scarlet's voice SO well. Adored everything about this book.
    My only complaint was that it was so short!
