My thoughts on Scarlet for week 2:
*Spoiler alert for anyone who hasn't read Scarlet*
 
Well, I’m still loving this book. LOVING it. Scarlet is such a complex character - an interesting mixture of hard and soft, tough and vulnerable. She has so many layers, and I love discovering new things about her. She’s still a bit of a mystery, but I like that things are being revealed slowly so that we’re left guessing at some parts.

I love that this book has a bit of everything - humor, action, romance (or potential romance), and light moments mixed with serious moments mixed with really tender moments. The part with Robin Hood and Scarlet and the baby…I'm not going to lie, I cried. It was just so beautiful and sweet. So far, I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve swooned, I’ve cheered for certain characters and booed for others. I am officially in love with this book.

  1. I didn't cry, but I think I may have audibly "Awwww"-ed. And I'm going nuts over the potential romance. NUTS I TELL YA! :D

    This book is just splendid, I'm so glad we picked this one. I'm getting so much more out of it since we're all discussing it.

  2. Hi! So sorry I missed Wednesday - severe laptop problems. I agree with you, that scene was great. Also the scene where Robin opened up about the Crusades - I'm loving all the Robin/Scarlet tender moments.

  3. I'm kicking myself for not getting this one and joining you guys. I really wanted to but time and work and stress are all against me. :(
