I try not to judge a book until I’ve reread it (or until I find myself incapable of rereading it). To me, the first read-through simply isn’t sufficient to really get the feel for a book and a writer. The first time through I allow myself to be dazzled by the writing and get swept along by the ideas...

The first thing that came to mind as soon as I figured out this was about Robin Hood's band was the Robin Hood song that the italian cartoon singer Cristina D'avena sang, here's the link if you'd like to listen to it, it's really adorable: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVdXxxXMcxY. I grew up with...

This review can also be found on my blog. I was very surprised on how the plot was very character driven. It was something new for me to read. To me, I felt like there wasn’t much of a plot during the majority of the novel, however, it was still worth reading cause I loved the characters. The writin...

There are two facts about Will Scarlet that you ...

After having so many great reviews from bloggers I trust I knew I had to get this retelling of Robin Hood told from the female perspective. Knowing that Scarlet was Will Scarlet reborn from the ashes of Marian made me more intrigued. I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this retelling where a fe...

Well that was disappointing. So much potential overshadowed by generic love-triangle drama. It could have been great if the romance was cut and the plot amped up, with more focus on each character's backstory and their (non-romantic) relationships with each other in the "band."

First let me just say that I am a huge fan of the Robin Hood Legend. As a kid I watched the Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman movie about 15 times more then most people would call healthy. So when I saw there was a book out that had a twist on the same old story – Will Scarlet is a girl in disguise!!! ...
