Did everybody else know that Robin Hood was real? And if so, THEN HOW COME NO ONE TOLD ME???

Now that I am aware of said fact, the Robin Hood I think of will not be the gritty, dour Russel Crowe version, but the eponymous character from Elder Moke's HOOD. It isn't a retread origin story however, at least not in the classic sense. HOOD follows Isabelle, a young woman who quickly learns that she is the daughter of the infamous outlaw (who again, was real!)

I don't think I've read historical fiction

I've heard it's *pretty* good. You should read it yourself and find out.

Recommends it for: everyone
There are some books that you enjoy so much and get so into that when you hit the twist in them, you are tempted to throw them across the room because you're like HOW DARE YOU DO THIS TO ME. (Like, that happened to me when I was reading WE WERE LIARS, and I think I did actually throw that book across the room.)

I had a very similar experience with HOOD. I loved loved LOVED this book and the characters were all so well done that they felt real to me and like they were friends, so when I hit the tw

HOOD is what I like to call a legit Portal Book. It opens into its own, ancient oak-lined pathway, inviting you to step into its world, drink its mead, and banter with its characters as you follow an irresistible story.

Isabelle, daughter of prioress Marien, finally discovers the identity of her father. He’s Robin Hood— a man whose existence she wasn’t even sure about until then. And now she must deliver to him the most urgent of messages. Robin Hood, unsurprisingly, is a difficult man to find,

GAH I AM A SUCKER FOR A RETELLING/REINVENTION WITH A NEW POINT OF VIEW, AND HOOD DELIVERS.
Okay, so this is the story of Isabelle. Imprisoned for shooting a soldier, she is rescued by her mother Marien, who tells her she must flee the priory and seek refuge with Thomas, a three-day journey away. An adventure begins. When she finds the Merry Men, she falls for a boy with brown curls, reconnects with her father, and learns how to be braver than she feels.
The writing in this book is so lush and beau

HOOD by Jenny Elder Moke is a fast-paced, action packed adventure. With a memorable cast of characters, both old and new, Elder Moke has created a unique yet familiar story that centers around Isabelle, the daughter of Robin Hood himself. What I loved about this historical fiction novel is that it took the classic tale of Robin Hood and wove it into a reimagined feminist tale. Isabelle is a relatable character who comes into her own but not without some doubts and struggles. Isabelle is thrown i ...more

I had the privilege of reading this delightful book early, and I am SO glad I didn’t have to wait! HOOD is straight up my street — an incredibly fun historical that gives an immersive world without getting bogged down in details, complete with mystery, costumed heists, and a feisty heroine who has daddy issues and a smoldering love interest. Also, archery contests! Because what’s the point of a Robin Hood retelling without some of those, right? If Robin Hood was one of your childhood favorites, ...more

When it says 'handsome young outlaws' does anyone else kind of picture Legolas?
