Waiting on Wednesday (02) Scarlet

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

 Scarlet by A.C. Guaghen
Publisher: Walker & Co.
Release Date: February 14th, 2012
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.

Can I just say that I am ridiculously excited for this? I mean, a retelling of Robin Hood, where Robin Hood is actually a female? This sounds like my cup of tea. Plus, the cover is just so compelling, the girl looks strong, like she could beat your ass down in a minute. I like it. 

What do you think of the book? What are you waiting on this week? Feel free to leave a link in the comments. :)
