The Scarlet Read-Along Starts on November 1st!


Are you ready? Marie at Ramblings of a Daydreamer and I are.

Since we're sooo close to getting started we thought we'd fill you in on some of the details of this event so that you can be prepared for the fun that is in store. We will be posting the reading schedule on the first day, but we're giving you your first assignment ahead of time: Read Chapter One. That's it. Read the first chapter on day one, then we'll discuss it the next day. That's all you need to do for the first portion of the read-along.

As far as the rest of it goes, here's a calendar of events for you! Feel free to print off a copy to keep up with the fun stuff we'll be doing.

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen

~GoodReads ~ Amazon.com ~ Amazon.ca ~ Book Depository ~ Chapters/Indigo~

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.

    1. Maybe since it's just a few chapters a week, it'll be easier for you...not like reading a book in a couple of days or even a week. I hope so anyway, reading slumps suck!

      Can't waaaaaiiiiiit! :-D
