My thoughts on Scarlet for week 3:
*Spoiler alert for anyone who hasn't read Scarlet*
Scarlet is absolutely breaking my heart this week. She takes on so much blame and responsibility for bad things that happen, and because of all the things she’s to blame for - in her own mind - she doesn’t think she deserves love or forgiveness (or acceptance, or understanding...the list goes on). She doesn’t think John could really love her - he just wants to sleep with her. She doesn’t think Robin could love her because she’s a thief, she’s scarred, and she’s not a ‘lady’, among other reasons. I seriously just want to hug her forever. I’m sure she’ll have a breakthrough moment soon, and I can’t wait for that to happen. I’m probably going to cheer out loud, and knowing what a sap I am, I’m sure I’ll cry lol.
A few other things I found interesting this week: Scar mentions her mother for the first time, and we finally learn the truth about Joanna. Gisbourne might get wind that Scarlet’s a girl, which is bad. That whole thing is going to come to a head very soon, and I'm scared. Tax day is coming and the band have to hand out money so everyone can pay their taxes and now end up at the gallows. I love how much affection Scarlet has for Much - he needs someone like her watching out for him.
Overall, another great week. I had to stop myself from carrying on, because I had so many other things to do and I just want to sit and finish this book. I can't believe that the next time I pick it up, I can finish it!
