Sherwood by Meagan Spooner is a retelling of Robin Hood that sounds like my new favourite girl power story. I am not too familiar with the story of Robin Hood, but the concept is one that I love. The fact that the main character in Sherwood is a female has me very excited. I look forward to finding out how Spooner spins this epic tale.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Fans of Danielle Paige, Marissa Meyer, and Alex Flinn will devour New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner’s next fierce fairy tale-inspired story, which Illuminae author Amie Kaufman calls “a kick-***, gender-flipped feminist retelling.”

Robin of Locksley is dead.

Maid Marian doesn’t know how she’ll go on, but the people of Locksley town, persecuted by the Sheriff of Nottingham, need a protector. And the dreadful Guy of Gisborne, the Sheriff’s right hand, wishes to step into Robin’s shoes as Lord of Locksley andMarian’s fiancé.

Who is there to stop them?

Marian never meant to tread in Robin’s footsteps—never intended to stand as a beacon of hope to those awaiting his triumphant return. But with a sweep of his green cloak and the flash of her sword, Marian makes the choice to become her own hero: Robin Hood. 


Book Quotes: Sherwood by Meagan SPooner

Who are you to say that being a lady, in itself, is not its own kind of war.

It wasn’t Sherwood Forest he haunted, it was Marian. She carried him in her thoughts and she would carry out his will with her own hands.

    I have been seeing this title around and am definitely interested. I know a little of the Robinhood stories, but not much. Marion was always a favorite character–never a pushover. I think I would enjoy this one. I hope you do!
