I haven‘t been able to read since my mom died. So here‘s a book she would have loved. Mom, this is for you.

Bookwomble I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Reading something your mum would like sounds like a lovely way of staying connected with her 💞 5mo

I bought this book four years ago, and forgot about it. Now I‘m 125 pages in and quite surprised that I am enjoying it. I don‘t typically read romance novels but this one is growing on me 😊

BrittanyReads One of my all time faves! Enjoy 2y

This was a nice version of Robin Hood. It‘s much more realistic. I loved the chemistry between Robin and Marian. Not at all like the previous romances in Robin Hood books. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼. #historicalFiction#fiction#adventure#undertheradar

I watched the movie years ago and absolutely loved it. So I had to read the book and they are vastly different. In most cases, I would say the book is better but for this particular case, I would say the movie was better. Nonetheless, it was a fun book! #jumpstart2021#fantasy

ElizaMarie I haven't read this book in forever! It was one of my favorites (I assume it still is) but I feel like its close to me having to re-read this one! Enjoy! 2y
Traci1 I read this when it first came out, and I was around 15. It remains one of my favorites. I don't think I ever reread it. I guess I need to get on that. 2y
BrieT2016 I‘ve had it on my shelf for awhile now, but never picked it up. So glad that I did! (edited) 2y

I was at Goodwill where I found this book and decided, “What the heck, I‘ll give it a try.” The audience is met for a younger crowd, but it was entertaining. It wasn‘t until the end when I realized it was the first book of a second series. 😂. Looks like I‘ll need to back track a few books.

Robin Hood | Henry Gilbert

Between work and school, I finally finished this book and I loved it. I did not expect such descriptive writing and fun adventure. The dialogue was difficult to follow at times. One thing I‘ve notice that today‘s books no longer have, is the way the authors from a different time would present the friendship between two characters. There was a sense of deep feeling. #robinhood#classic#t#goodreadschallenge

I had a hard time rating this book. It started off strong but then it became dull. Halfway through the book, I was dragging me feet. Nonetheless I enjoyed the character development of Margaret. She started off as an innocent 12 year old forced into marriage after marriage. By her third marriage, she chose her husband and steered the rebellion. Therefore I gave it a 👍. #goodreadschallenge

It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read anything. It‘s been a couple of busy weeks! I finally finished this book and I have mixed feelings for it. I didn‘t know if I should give it a bad review for some issues in the story or a great review for making want to turn the page! Overall, I loved this book. It could use more developing and I didn‘t care for the ending, but it was a page turner. Some parts were heartbreaking. So I give it a 👍.

BrieT2016 I‘m good now, thank you! My home still stay but there‘s several families that were less fortunate. The fire went 40 miles long. It was nasty. 5y

This was a free ebook that read. I liked the idea and there were some unexpected events. Though I disliked reading ‘I hate‘ on almost every page. The characters were flat. It was not as development as I hoped. So for me, that was a disappointment.

Vinjii So far I love it 😊 thank you! Sad it didn‘t work for you. Hope your next read is better. 5y
BrieT2016 I started off liking it but I lost interest and couldn‘t get into it. I‘ll probably try again later. I usually give a book 100 pages before I bail. I‘m glad you‘re liking it! 😊 5y
Vinjii @BrieT2016 Okay so this turned (4 months later heh) into a five star read for me once it all started clicking into place. There‘s too many names, but I stuck with it, printed the glossary and slowly fell in love. I really enjoyed the romance in it and the world building. 4y
