    One thought on “Scarlet”

    1. This is an alternate retelling of Robin Hood, where Will Scarlet is a hemorrhoidal pain in the ass who talks like a Monty Python and the Holy Grail cast reject that gets involved in a horrifyingly painful love triangle WITH ROBIN HOOD AND LITTLE JOHN.There are two facts about Will Scarlet that you should know before starting this book.1 Will Scarlet is actually a she, a girl disguised as a boy2 The Scarlet in her name refers to the fact that SHE CAN T STOP FUCKING BLUSHING That s actually someth [...]

    2. I don t know about anyone else but when I think of Robin Hood I think of this Wait, I m the only one who pictured him like that Huh Blame my childhood.Anyway, when I first started reading this book I admittedly imagined Robin Hood as being pretty hot Like a total fox GET IT Granted, the Robin Hood in this story was not the main character Rather, the main character was a young woman who everyone knew as Scarlet Her identity is mysterious and only a few people know that she s secretly a girl She s [...]

    3. 3.75I literally have no idea about the whole Robin Hood tale, but this was pretty fucking awesome Also, im too lazy to write a proper review so here s a quick list as to why you should read it the beginning, which was about 70ish pages for me, was incredibly boring to the point where i was willing to watch paint dry, BUT it fricken gets so much better we have a badass female who takes no shit from anyone she s a thief who steals food and money to help out the poor and needy she s part of Robin H [...]

    4. Scarlet is wrenching and moving story of love and friendship, bravery and loyalty, a retelling of the legend of Robin Hood, only the voice of narration was Scarlet Yes Will Scarlet, the most skilled knife handling young fellow of Robin, in the traditional tales, famous for his hot temper But he s not actually what we think he is He s no lad he s a lass a girl hiding her true identity in men s cloth.Being a part of the merry men, Scarlet was always successful to hide the truth from rest of the No [...]

    5. 1.5 starsA retelling of Robin Hood where Will Scarlet, a member of Robin s band is a actually girl in disguise The storyline didn t really entertain me, it was boring and the real action only really kicked in towards the end The narrative was strange, it was part present tense and part past tense, I couldn t get my head around it The British isms and British slang didn t read right AT ALL, it felt forced and it made me cringe at how hard it tried to sound authentically British The love triangle [...]

    6. This is the first time I ve read a version of the Robin Hood story where I wanted the sheriff to win Flimsy characters, clunky writing and gaping plot holes mangle what otherwise might have been a decent YA novel.The narrative is in Scarlet s voice but it s pretty hard to tell what that is, exactly It s vaguely British and vaguely working class but is rooted in neither Yorkshire nor London, where she claims to be from at different points in the novel Like the plot, it also shows up when it feels [...]

    7. Actual Rating 3.5 stars We do what we do because there s something we can do about it Things like how long and what if aren t part of that It s about the hope, not the horror Scarlet, 2012 debut novel from A.C Gaughen, takes the legends and characters associated with Robin Hood and spins them all into an engrossing story focusing on a secretive thief who s much than meets the eye The people of Nottinghamshire know the thief as Will Scarlet, knife wielding companion to Robin Hood, but there s a [...]

    8. OMG I loved this book I m going to start this review by announcing something that I NEVER expected to say John if you re reading this you should close your eyes and skip ahead ROBIN HOOD IS MY NEW BOYFRIEND There, it s out in the open Phew I feel better now I know that once you read this you re going to want him too but just remember I said it first and this post is time stamped But don t worry, you don t have to be turned away empty handed Rob s band of Merry Men are pretty darn lovable too.The [...]

    9. Re read for tomoorrrroowwwww His hands came on either side of my face, holding me up to him Waves were crashing in his eyes, sure and strong and sweeping You are my whole heart, Scarlet And this is breaking it I don t know I don t know how I came across this or why it spoke to mebut it did Even today I am still giddy and weightless when I think about this book How amazing is it when you find something that, while it seems intriguing, doesn t necessarily scream, You will love me and you kind of p [...]

    10. I simply adore these books I ve read them twice now, and can t help but picking them up from time to time to re read my favourite sections.Scarlet follows the story of Will Scarlet, one of the heroes of the Robin Hood legend, but who is actually a girl in disguise She has joined Robin s band of Merry Men, but is keeping her true identity a secret Once the Sheriff invites the infamous Guy of Gisbourne to Nottingham to rid the county of Robin once and for all, Scarlet finds herself risking her lif [...]

    11. Take a badass female lead who knows how to throw a knife and whose snarky inner comments made me laugh but who blushes way too much for no reasons Give her a good shake there s hope for her in the sequel, I hope, I know it She only has to let go of her split personality and I ll truly appreciate her Just sayin Take a fantastic past earl who becomes the archetype of the broody but selfless hero you know, Robin Hood, who made my heart beat like crazy thanks to his full awesomeness annnnd hotness w [...]

    12. I don t usually give star ratings for novels any, simply because I know how much soul goes into creating and publishing a book But with SCARLET, I couldn t NOT give this debut 5 whopping stars This is the BEST novel I ve read in a very very long time It had me completely sucked in from chapter one, and I didn t want it to end when the last page crept up Scarlet is a fabulously complex girl I loved her so much strong and independent, with demons in her past and a fearful secret revolving around G [...]

    13. Loved It s funny because I think I was invested in the action than romance in this one, but there still isn t anything I would change Reminded me of the way Moira Young writes, only a different setting Will definitely be reading its sequel.

    14. Well, this one was a miss for me, which is a shame because I like Robin Hood and I liked the idea of one of the characters being a girl, but meh I just found myself unable to CARE I didn t get attached to the story at all, or the characters and their relationships I found it pretty dull and it didn t really get interesting for me I had to skim to end it because I just wasn t having fun.I found Scarlet s character pretty annoying tbh and I did not appreciate all the hate toward other girls that s [...]

    15. This is my second time reading this, I have to say I love it than the first time This book got me tearing up so much 3

    16. Scarlet was an adventurous story that was filled to the brim with excitement and hardships at many turns I was a little nervous stepping into a book that contained characters that I hold near and dear to my heart, but I loved how Scarlet felt familiar yet was uniquely different at the same time While I did have some issues with a love triangle, I can t wait to see what happens with the rest of this trilogy Especially after that fabulous life and death ending I swallowed We watch each others back [...]

    17. Okay You are all familiar with my what s the word thing for thieves And Robin is perhaps the thief I ve loved the longest So it should come as no surprise when I say that I was filled with glee when I first heard about A C Gaughen s upcoming retelling SCARLET I liked the cover and, without running down too many spoilery details, I looked forward to the focus on Will Scarlet and the fact that it hailed from a debut author All of these things add up to that most wonderful of things possibility [...]

    18. Oh, this so my kind of story A stubborn, brash, get out of my way and let me do my thing lead character, who is flawed realistically, yet fierce, brave and determined Scarlet is a strong lead who had me rooting for her the whole time The only girl among Robin Hood s band of thieves, she hides away, playing the role of a young boy, while her past is steadily sneaking up on her in the form of a Thief Taker named Lord Gisbourne.Though she doesn t let that hold her back from trying to help the citiz [...]

    19. I loved this book I have always loved Robin hood even as a child and A.C Gaugher is writing it so good, I love Robin, John and Much and Scarlet is an amazing badass girl I know I have given many books lately 5 starts but I guess I have had an good book year Re read before Lady Thief, I just love this book and Robin Hood 3 Just aww, I love Robin, John, Much and Scarlet I can t wait to start Lady Thief and I hope it is as good 3

    20. 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 youtube watch v MVdXx I grew up with Robin Hood s cartoons and soon fell in love with all the movies and the stories and when I found out that one of my fav author had actually wrotten Robin Hood, not only did I feel stupid but also enthusiastic I went out and [...]

    21. 3.9 5 stars Amazing read, I loved both Robin and Scarlet, but the one thing that bugged me a lot was the writing style RTC So she killed herself, John said So they say That really doesn t sound all that awful, John muttered Not worth dying for You know nothing of it, John To be silenced when your wishes don t matter, to be sold like property, and to a man like him I spat at his feet A man would know nothing of it And what would a thief know of it John scoffed Like you ve ever done a damn thing y [...]

    22. I am a sucker for a good historical retelling, and a strong heroine to be honest, and this book had everything I was looking for.Scarlet is a member of Robin Hood s band of thieves Few outside the group know that she s a girl, as she disguises herself as Will Scarlet In the legends and movies of past Robin Hoods, Will was often considered Robin s best friend, and was always played by the cutest, dorkiest boys In case you need a reminder Robin Hood Prince of Thieves 1991 Robin Hood Men in Tights [...]

    23. I opened this book, and after reading the dialect, I thought, HuhI m not sure I ll be able to read this Then, three pages later, I was so sucked into the story, I stopped noticing the dialect All I saw was Scarlet s VOICE and let me tell you, she has one A powerful, compelling, stubborn as hell voice that fits every impulsive, disgruntled course of action she chooses.To be honest, impulsive MCs are pretty common erm own coughcough , but Scarlet is easily the most convincing impulsive MC I ve eve [...]

    27. This review originally appeared on Finding Bliss in Books Scarlet is one of those books that come with a lot of hype It is also one of those books I was only mildly interested in Whenever I saw someone gushing about it, I adopted an eh, we ll see, maybe one day attitude That person Don t listen to her She is wrong Luckily, Meg realised just how wrong the way I was living my life was and sent me a copy I m always in for a Red Riding Hood retelling, so I moved it up on the TBR pile Then I read the [...]

    28. What a RIDE I LOVED A.C Gaughen s twist of the tale of Robin Hood I could not get enough of the fierce, loyal, and equally deadly Scarlet She really was as badass as they come I LOVED HER 4 Stars SCARLET was an awesome retelling of ROBIN HOOD I loved the twist that A.C Gaughen put on the ROBIN HOOD classic She spun the original ROBIN HOOD tale, with her own freshly imaginative twist, that brings a whole new world of characters, obstacles and adventure I loved that the drama, action, secrets, and [...]

    29. 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 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 I was beyond excited.But then it turned out to be just so BAD Here s why Let me paint a picture of Scarlet for you Imagine that chick from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon who can fly through trees and has other se [...]
