Waiting on Wednesday #50: The Forest Queen by Betsy Cornwell

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

The Forest Queen by Betsy Cornwell
August 7th, 2018, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
YA Fantasy
Pre-order: Book Depository Amazon
From a New York Times bestselling author, a fresh, female-centered take on “Robin Hood” in which a young noblewoman, like the legendary hero, becomes an outlaw fighting for social justice. Perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer and Sarah J. Maas.

When sixteen-year-old Sylvie’s brother takes over management of their family’s vast estates, Sylvie feels powerless to stop his abuse of the local commoners. Her dearest friend asks her to run away to the woods with him, and soon a host of other villagers join them. Together, they form their own community and fight to right the wrongs perpetrated by the king and his noblemen. Perfect for fans of fairy tale retellings or anyone who loves a strong female lead, this gorgeously written take on the Robin Hood tale goes beyond the original's focus on economic justice to explore love, gender, the healing power of nature, and what it means to be a family.
FEMALE ROBIN HOOD. How can this book not be cool? I have come to realize that I haven't read many books about Robin Hood and now I need to! This book also has a lovely cover, imagine how it'll look in print! ♥

What are you waiting on this week? :)


  1. I've been seeing this one around and it sounds SO good! I am all for a female Robin Hood. Can't wait for it to come out--and yes, that cover is amazing! Great pick!
