I am not going to give this book a rating to be fair I tried reading it not once nor twice but 3 times and I simply can't get into it I will DNF it for now without a rating because I haven't read enough of it to judge it I may come back to it in the future though most probably won't

SherwoodS there to stop themMarian 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 Ho. Officially giving up I'm at 21% and the plot is barely getting solidified an almost 500 page book I'm finding it very difficult to get into I love the idea of Maid Marian being Robin Hood but it's meh so far Unfortunately Putting it aside for now

DNF at 30%One of my bookish New Year’s resolutions was to stop torturing myself through books I wasn’t enjoying It’s so bloody disappointing that one of my most anticipated releases of 2019 ended up being the first book that I DNF’ed UghJust so you know The Adventures of Robin Hood 1938 with Errol Flynn is my favourite film of all time ALL TIME And The Princess Bride 1987 with Cary Elwes comes in at a close second You have NO IDEA how sad I am that I couldn’t even get through this bookWhen I read a Robin Hood retelling THIS is what I want to see I know that it was stated in the synopsis that the novel takes place after Robin’s death but think about it this way Say you’re reading a gender bent retelling of Beauty and the Beast Okay Now the Beast ends up being the beautiful one because the roles are switched Then Belle herself gets killed off just as Robin did And worse the Beast suddenly falls in love with someone Belle HATED with every fibre of her being such as Gaston I shan’t spoil who Marian ends up with but it’s not hard to guess Would you enjoy that Probably not I’d presume That’s literally what happens in this book I had read nearly 150 pages of this and literally NOTHING of importance occurred That’s 30% of the novel and I couldn’t see myself making it through all 480 pages to the end The plot still wasn’t initiated and the setting was still being established 30% of the novel and NOTHING HAD HAPPENED How did Meagan Spooner go from the compelling story that was Hunted to this I’m honestly so confused Are we certain that she actually wrote this It’s easier to believe that this was the product of a ghost writer So Marianin case you didn’t knowis NOT LIKE OTHER GIRLS and is PERFECT IN EVERY WAY She’s an even better archer than BLOODY ROBIN HOOD because she’s totally won archery tournaments to prove she’s the best archer in England like he has NOT Also she’s taller than Robin musclier than Robin smarter than RobinAnd no I’m not exaggerating This is actually stated in the book Honestly I don’t know why we bother with Robin Hood myths when CLEARLY Marian is the star of the show She was raised as a proper lady in the 12th century but can somehow outmatch Robin Hood the outlaw of Sherwood without even breaking sweat He must’ve been SO HONOURED to be in her glorious presence What an egotistical and condescending person Marian was Oy veyAnd while she donned Robin’s cloak she somehow resembled a man because I guess she has no boobs or hips She also was unbelievably able to jump in trees and shoot a bow while IN A DRESS At least in Princess of Thieves 2001 with Keira Knightley Robin Hood’s daughter had short hair and wore trousers in order to undertake her father’s position while he was imprisoned See What a conceptAlso let’s not forgetdespite the fact that Marian treats everyone around her poorly MEN FALL IN LOVE WITH HER for no reason at all Marian is the epitome of a Mary Sue character in my opinion The Merry Men had a very insignificant role as well In fact Sir Guy of Gisbourne had a larger role and since Marian was undertaking Robin’s status as an outlaw that makes ZERO SENSE Her fellow outlaws should’ve had larger roles Actually the majority of this book makes no sense The concept for this retelling sounded good in theory but the execution was rather shoddy I understand the inspiration for a female Robin Hood but Meagan Spooner made her so unlikeable that I was rooting for Sir Guy which – I’m certain – is not what she intended None of the characters were well developed and Marian had no chemistry with anyone She just went around moping for Robin pretending to be Robin and acted like she was so much better than everyone else around her Honestly I HATED her character I would have preferred if Robin Hood had been in the story where he and Marian worked TOGETHER to defend the Saxons from the Normans’ oppression Then we could’ve seen some great sword fighting and archery scenes with fast paced action unlike this bore of a novel I was so certain that this would be my new favourite book but apparently it was not meant to be Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to purge my memory of this book by re watching The Adventures of Robin Hood for the umpteenth time where I’ll see the portrayals of Robin and Marian that have always appealed to me P
