I can't believe we're halfway through week 3 already! More awesomeness this week...and look, I managed to narrow it down to two quotes! ;-)

 
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.
 
Spoiler Warning: if you haven't read Scarlet, you might not want to read the quotes!

I were a girl, and they were boys, and I never felt more sure of that than when Rob were touching my skin like I were gold. ~ page 166
 
Rob and John shot daggers at each other.. With their eyes, leastways. I'm the only one who shoots real daggers. ~ page 170

  1. Ooh, that's just a bit further on that what I've read and now I'm excited to get there. I know there's a lot of grumbling about love triangles in YA, but the dynamic between these three is so interesting.
