    MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading ListFirst off I love the cover of this book I think it's so beautiful and it continues onto the back of the book SOME SPOILERSI loved the idea of Juliana being a female version of Robin Hood Her father was killed and everyone thought she was as well and her cousin took over her castle and lands Juliana went into hiding with a group of people and they lived in the forest for 3 years They stole from the rich and gave to the poor She's really awesome with a bow and arrow I loved the characters of Bulldog and Thatch they were a father and son that Juliana stayed in the forest with and did what they had to do There is some evilness in the book done to Thatch but thankfully it all worked out One day Juliana stole from Lord Collin As her and Thatch were leaving Collin figured out who she was and he pursued her at one point Needless to say Collin fell in love with Juliana and took her to his castle They did fall in love Juliana got Collin to be an even better person than he was and they fought to get what was rightfully hers So in the end it all worked out but it's left open for another book I would like to thank HarperCollinsPublishers and BookLookBloggers for a print copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

We’ve got the instant love okay no shock whatever I can deal But Collin Collin says he loves Juliana If you love her Collin why didn’t marriage come to your mind? You’re totally enjoying kissing touching her but you don’t even think about marrying her until her protector tells you “If you want her then you’ll make her your wife first” I swear it’s like a light bulb went off in Collin’s head So Collin Not my favorite Juliana I wanted to like her at first I had a hard time though At one point she’s over here holding a knife to Collin’s throat and then check him out at the same time In semi detailed muscle and tight pants noticing might I addBoth of them were just too good at what they did They did everything pretty well and it always impressed the other Then in Collin’s case he basically bragged about how much better he was at shooting tracking etc than someone else They both just came across as flat to me They would show off how good they were at something but then there would be a “coincidental” flaw in their personalities that felt like it was added as an afterthoughtThe torture and details of all the methods was just awful Honestly it wasn’t needed You can write about something without getting fully into the details Why does the author find it so fascinating to include such details?So I’m disappointed But I’m not shocked If you found this review helpful please give it a likeLink to reviewBFCG may Read the review to see recommend this book by this author It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author

    I got over halfway through A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund but finally decided to put it down There was instant love a lot of flattery and even kissing before any thoughts of a relationship marriage and just some other things that didn't appeal to me personally So while I really liked the first book in this series I won't be finishing the second one Still hope to give the third a try though when it comes out smiles

    Reasons I uit this book 1 First person narrator refers to her horse as her steed and her mount – in the same sentence And giving it full rein means letting it plod at a leisurely pace2 First person narrator doesn't let a medieval setting stop her from using modern terms like ultra soft and lifestyle As long as she throws in the occasional archaic contraction – 'twas 'twould that sort of t'ing – it's all good right? 3 First person narrator is adept at disguising herself not only as a man but also as a wealthy young traveler apparently completely accepted by all comers despite having no escort no horses no baggage and no warning for her purported host In medieval England The ingrained dirt from having lived in the forest for literally years fortunately washes right off in the nearest pond I'm not sure if the lady she's pretending to be would actually traipse through kitchen where The blood from the butchering slickened the floor along with feathers and entrails the dogs hadn’t yet cleaned up; that can't be good for the silk train she's dragging along behind her But then I suppose that's what servants are for 4 The spectacularly handsome hero is even richer than he is good looking and apparently read LM Montgomery when he was small – although he chooses to reference strawberries rather than carrots when teasing the red headed spectacularly pretty heroine This being a medieval setting she does not have a slate to crack over his head so she kicks him Oh and the touch of his fingers is as soft as the feathers of a baby bird I just couldn't do itThe usual disclaimer I received this book via Netgalley for review

    An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewDNF at 49 PAGESFirst off this already suffered from far too many Christian medieval romance tropes and I simply can't take it any Honest to goodness if you've read one it's like you've read them all I keep picking them upreuesting them in the vain hope I'll find one that's different and better than the rest but alas no luck yetJuliana is a female Robin Hood who is referred to as being street smart and good at being a thief and always gets away and WOW just so good at what she does But even while we're being told this she makes such stupid decisions and pretty much just seems somewhat incompetent It almost seems like there was this county wide conspiracy among everybody that they'd try to capture her but actually just let her go to make her think she's good Anyways then she robs Colin and it's made abundantly clear that she's not as good as she's been made out to be and he could have captured her like seventeen different times and even when he lets her get away he still tracks her through the forest and catches her a few hours later Ugh that whole scene was gag worthy Seriously there was already semi creepy cheek and hair touching on Colin's part and that's not acceptable I'm not sorry Oh and at one point Juliana takes off running and Colin chuckles and starts out after her mentally thinking she has spunk Colin is annoyingly arrogant but probably really just a good guy who simply needs some humility and a different perspective on the peasantry I'm sure by the end of the book Juliana would have led him to all of these things true love and bonus points an appreciation for the Christian faithAlso I've said it before and I'll say it again I don't expect writers to write accurately to the 14th century or whatever century their book is set in within reason but when the writing and especially dialogue is so jarring to the setting of the book it really detracts from the book Add to that poor grammar like using stupider and stupidest and I'm gonna be complaining about it

    A Daring Sacrifice is a lovely young adult romance Full of exciting scenes and sweet moments it's a book that a younger me would have loved and older me is no different I don't know what it is about stories featuring knights and balls and archery but they always draw me in I breezed through this little gem in no timeJuliana is a great heroine because she stands up for others at great personal risk The Robin Hood reversal isn't actually all that strong in the story there's just a touch of it It isn't really the main plot device as much as it is the backdrop of Juliana's story It was nice way to let readers know what she's about without repeating that story line She does know how to handle a bow and arrow and those scenes were a lot of fun Though she is a Robin Hood type character the story really begins when she agrees to stay with Sir Collin Collin isn't a broody guy but rather funny flirty and precocious I found him to be a refreshingly sweet male leadWhile the plot itself was a bit predictable every bit of it was fun I didn't see anything here that was inappropriate for younger readers Even present than the stealing from the rich story line is the idea of sacrifice and the love that propels it one that transcends romantic love and truly puts another person's well being firstThough I don't think I'll ever prefer her young adult novels over her adult novels Jody brings out the best of her adult novels and tailors them for a younger audience Readers that enjoyed the first book will definitely be pleased with A Daring Sacrifice I'm looking forward to the next book in the series

    Me reading the description of the book in January and getting it in the mail yesterdayAfter reading it I was expecting a Robin Hood esue plot with some romance not off to the side exactly but sort of in the middle of everything I never really felt fully connected to anythinganyone in the story all the ingredients seemed to be there but 'something' was missing that kept me from enjoying the storyThe romance not above a nice romantic story but this one felt flat There was no chemistry between Collin and Juliana In the beginning I did love their friendship and was looking forward to them growing closer but it all happened too uickly and felt 'telling' than 'showing'Pros and so so'sI like Bulldog Thatch and the others in Juliana's circleI did like Juliana I admired her strength loyalty and compassionCollin himself was a good guy and I could see him as a friend but in some ways he felt too good to be trueWessex kind of bored me as a antagonistIf you loved this power to you but this was a miss for me not a bad novel but not a great one eitherTry it if you are curious you may think differently from me waves

    Of the three Robin Hood retellings that I have read in the last year A Daring Sacrifice was by far my favorite Since the first book in this series An Uncertain Choice ended with a bit of a cliffhanger foreshadowing this book I was very anxious to find out what happened I very muc enjoyed getting to know Collin after meeting him in the first book and getting to see him find a girl And while it takes a lot for me to really like a fictional heroine Jody Hedlund has so far managed to endear me to both of hers in these books A Daring Sacrifice like the first book is a sweet romance but with enough reality to make it interesting Like poor Collin The end had me a little nervous to be sure And like the last book it ended with a little cliffhanger to set up the next book I am greatly looking forward to reading on in this seriesI received a copy of this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review
