#DustOffYourBookshelf (#7)

Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and Mandy @ The Reading Diaries have teamed up to encourage themselves and others to use Instagram more. 

 So they came up with #Dustoffyourbookshelf where you display a book that you have had on your shelf for a long time and probably forgotten about. If you have time to grab it off the shelf and read it that is great, but you don’t have to read what you display. You can be creative in your displaying or you can just take a picture of it on your shelf. They are mainly doing this to get into Instagram but thought it would be fun to do a post on Thursdays since there's normally not a lot to post for Thursdays. It’s not technically a meme yet unless they get some followers, so join in the fun! 

 You can follow them on Instagram @bmreviewsohmy & @ReadingDiaries

I'm actually on Instagram quite a bit, so I figured this sounded like fun.

Here's what I found this week:

Scarlet (Scarlet #1) 
by A.C. Gaughen
Release date: Feb, 2012

Will Scarlet is good at two things: stealing from the rich and keeping secrets - skills that are in high demand in Robin Hood's band of thieves, who protect the people of Nottingham from the evil sheriff. Scarlet's biggest secret of all is one only Robin and his men know...that she is posing as a thief; that the slip of a boy who is fast with sharp knives is really a girl.
The terrible events in her past that led Scarlet to hide her real identity are in danger of being exposed when the thief taker Lord Gisbourne arrives in town to rid Nottingham of the Hood and his men once and for all. As Gisbourne closes in a put innocent lives at risk, Scarlet must decide how much the people of Nottingham mean to her, especially John Little, a flirtatious fellow outlaw, and Robin, whose quick smiles have the rare power to unsettle her. There is real honor among these thieves and so much more - making this a fight worth dying for.

I totally forgot that I bought this three years ago. I always meant to read it, but it got lost in my shelves. I'm glad I was able to dust it off today because I know that the third book, Lion Heart, was just released. 
Have you read this?

  1. It's still on my sheld too :(

  2. I LOVE this series! In fact, I just finished the third book! :)
    I hope you get to reading it, eventually.

  3. My God I need to read this one too! Maybe this summer I'll actually read it. Stupid TBR.

  4. What a fun idea!! And SCARLET is still unread on my Kindle, though I've heard it's good. I do really need to try it. Hope you enjoy it!

  5. I've seen this book around although I never really bothered to check it out. But after reading through its plot, it doesn't really seem like my type of read although I'd still consider this :)
