Summary (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 love anything related to the stories of Robin Hood. I really love the new twist on this tale and I’m super excited to see how this story plays with the original stories. Sounds super interesting!

Great choice, I really want to read this book too.
ooh great pick! I have seen this one a few times today already!! we are not the only ones drooling for this book yey!! ^.^
I love the sound of this books as well. When people think Robin Hood, they think about a bunch of men. I'm excited to read how Scarlet fits into the story.
I just requested an ARC of this on NetGalley!! Really hoping I get it – I *love* Robin Hood stories. If you haven't, check out the BBC's 3-season series – so much fun!
It's about time SOMEONE does a Robin Hood retelling. And with a gorgeous cover like that, it's impossible to resist!
Have an amazing reading week!
