    Robin Hood retellings are a lifelong passion of mine, so I have read a LOT of them. I'm especially fond of books that a) do something with the legend that I haven't seen before and b) take a keen interest in Marian -- and like A.C. Gaughen's excellent SCARLET trilogy, this gorgeous sta...

    Read this book review and others on my blog: https://thriftybibliophile.com Sherwood by Meagan Spooner is a Robin Hood retelling that includes delightful twists and turns. Robin of Locksley is dead, leaving his fianc, Maid Marian, behind. Wracked with grief, Marian isn?t sur...

    "Marian's life had been ordained when she was born a girl. But Robin Hood's life?" Robin Hood is dead. It's not a spoiler, it's right there in the synopsis. While going on a secret mission where she had to hide her identity, Marian is mistaken for Robin Hood, because not everyone is...

    Hello, 911? Yes, I've been ROBBED. I am heartbroken to admit that this fell flat on so many levels and honestly my faith in this author has been severely shaken. I feel so cheated of so much from this book. Where did the grandeur of Hunted go? Where is the beautiful angst fr...

    I started reading Sherwood on 9/3/18 and finished it on 9/15/18. This book is a great read. The main character, Marian is more of a tomboy. She likes to carry a sword and practice archery instead of doing the duty and expectation of a lady. She takes matter into her own hands when she ...

    OMG, my friends. This book. It's the kickass, gender-flipped, feminist retelling your heart has been waiting for. * The prose is as gorgeous as only Meagan Spooner can make it. She just... HOW does she write like that? I've been watching for years, and I still can't figure it out. S...

    Another stellar retelling by Meagan Spooner! I LOVED this gender swapped Robin Hood story. Marian is fierce yet vulnerable and noble yet flawed. PLUS there's romance in here that was beautiful and so unexpectedly lovely. I need more!! ...

    I don't think I've ever read any Robin Hood retelling or any Robin Hood book for that matter, but I like the story so I'm curious about this one. I just got an arc of this book, which is like the 4th arc I got this week, so maybe this is a good time for me to try the lottery or so...

    2.5 stars An uninspired gender-swapped retelling of Robin Hood, with Marian playing both the roles of herself and the titular hero after her betrothed, Robin of Locksley, is killed while fighting alongside King Richard I in the Crusades. - Up until about the 80% mark I was plannin...

    Marian and Robin grew up together in Nottingham near Sherwood forest. They grew up riding, sword-fighting with each other and learning and mastering archery. And they loved each other and would have been married eventually. But Robin of Locksley dies in the Holy Land as part of King...

    Grief, thought Marian, was not the melancholy mourning of a loss, not the long and dwindling ache that ballads sang of. It was forgetting, and remembering, again and again, an endless series of slashes, each as violent and sharp as the last. My god, I don't know how this author does...

    I?m so mad! I was looking forward to loving this book!! I have loved some of the authors other books. This book; the only thing I liked was the idea and the poster I got of the book cover in my fairy loot box. Sigh.............................. ...................... ...

    So I have read a lot of Robin Hood retellings, and watched a lot of movies too. Errol Flynn is pretty iconic and even with the ridiculous outfit Will Scarlett wore (red is really not good camouflage in a forest especially when topped by a giant feathered cap), my 5 year old self pretty...

    ? ARC PROVIDED BY THE PUBLISHER VIA EDELWEISS IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW ? I was so certain I would give Sherwood 4 stars. But the last 25% smashed my expectations to bits in the worst way. A feminist, gender-bent Robin Hood retelling should have been epic enough to ma...

    solid 2.5 stars Honestly, reading this book had its ups and downs. Sometimes I would be hesitantly surprised at how something came out, but most of the times I was left disgruntled and distrusting. These feelings vacillated throughout the book, but overall my biggest problem was t...

    DNF at 30% One of my bookish New Year?s resolutions was to stop torturing myself through books I wasn?t enjoying. It?s so bloody disappointing that one of my most anticipated releases of 2019 ended up being the first book that I DNF?ed. Ugh. Just so you know, The Adventur...

    4-1/2 Stars Meagan Spooner?s writing is lush and effortless, her storytelling compelling. I look forward to reading anything she writes. Although, I did like Hunted a little more than Sherwood, I fell easily under the author?s spell as she spun the alternate history of Robin of ...

    I am not going to give this book a rating to be fair. I tried reading it not once, nor twice but 3 times and I simply can't get into it. I will DNF it for now without a rating because I haven't read enough of it to judge it. I may come back to it in the future though (most probably won...

    An interesting twist for fans of the Robin Hood legend (which I totally am.) Robin of Locksley is killed while fighting in the Crusades, and Maid Marian takes up his bow and assumes the legend of Robin Hood in his place. Definitely cool from a period piece perspective and for those who...

    I'm at 21% and the plot is barely getting solidified, an almost 500 page book. I'm finding it very difficult to get into. I love the idea of Maid Marian being Robin Hood, but it's ? meh so far. Unfortunately. Putting it aside for now. ...
