Wish List Wednesday (73)

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen, Febuary 14, 2012. Published by Walker Children's.

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.
Why: A girl posing as Robin Hood, with a mysterious past sign me up. I definitely cannot wait to get my hands of a copy of Scarlet because it sounds exactly like somethingt I would love.

Janes in Love (Plain Janes, 2) by Cecil Castellucci , illustrated by Jim Rugg, 2008. Published by Vertigo.


The second volume of the critically acclaimed series finds a group of high school girls each named Jane, who are anything but ordinary, playing cupid. Plus P.L.A.I.N. (People Loving Art In Neighborhoods) goes global once the girl gang procures a spot in Metro City Museum of Modern Art contest.

Why: Plain Janes was one fo the first graphic novels that I read, and I really enjoyed it. Plus I absolutely cannot wait to see what all the Janes' will get up to next.
