Waiting on Wednesday #2

Hosted by Breaking the Spine
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Lady Thief
Author: A.C. Gaughen
Publication date: February 14, 2014
Publisher: Walker Childrens (Bloomsbury)

Scarlet’s true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet’s love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet’s past even she isn’t yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman—a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin’s cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet’s tale will have readers talking once again

Why I'm wanting:

I adored Scarlet. It definitely became one of the best 2013 books I read this year. Gaughen took a different approach to Robin Hood by making Will Scarlet a girl and there was action and romance and—well, my review will be here soon. 

I'm experiencing that blogger jealousy when I see this popping up on my Twitter feed. *fingers twitch* 

Have you read Scarlet yet? What are you wanting?

  1. I remember picking up Scarlet, but for some reason I didn't end up finishing it. I can't remember why, though. Hmm, might have to give it another go. :)

  3. This doesn't sound like the books that I'd typically read, but I'm so enraptured by the summary. I'm adding Lady Thief and Scarlet both to my tbr!

  5. Dude, I requested this on NG before I even finished Scarlet! The audio of Scarlet was phenomenal...gonna try to have my review up tomorrow, but yeah, really, really good retelling. Twisty and action-packed, plus the swoons! I think I'm going to pick up Lady Thief as soon as I finish the book I'm working on now. I have others I'm supposed to read, but I'm just too darn excited about this one! Fabulous pick, Sunny!
