Waiting on Wednesday (63)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
Publication date: February 14, 2012

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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 am interested in reading this book (though I hate the cover) because as a kid I loved the character of Robin Hood, especially in the Disney animated version where Robin is a fox. Also I think the story sounds promising and reminds me of books by Celia Rees. Historical adventure novel? Sign me up!


  1. I have seen every movie ever made about Robin Hood and loved them all so I will definitely be wanting to read this one. Great choice!

  2. I'm a fan of Robin Hood, and this one sounds unique and exciting.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Here's MY WOW POST

  3. I love Robin Hood too and you are so definitely sounds like a Celia Rees novel. I could use a good adventure book; I haven't read one lately. Great pick, Christina!

  4. Wow, I just saw this book on another blog for the same post. And isn't the cover beautiful? I must check this book out now.

    Thanks for the great post:)

  5. Ooooh I love the sound of this one.
