by A.C. Gaughen
Series: Scarlet #3
Genre: Historical Fiction, Retelling, YA

Why I'm NOT Waiting...
It's quite possible that none of you are going to believe me when I say that it actually HURTS me to put this book up as a Not Waiting on Wednesday (NWoW) post rather than a WoW post. This series has all the signs of greatness: a gorgeous cover, a fairytale retelling, and romance. I read the first book, Scarlet, before it became a thing within the book blogger community, and according to the five stars I gave it, I loved it. Nevertheless, every time I think back on it, all I can seem to muster up is that it really wasn't all that great of a book (Sorrrrry guys! I didn't mean to put that stake in your heart!). A couple of months ago, I checked the second book out from the school library, but I only got a few chapters in before I realized I was bored. Maybe I didn't wait long enough? I sure hope so, because I'd really like to feel the same amount of joy that everyone else seems to feel about this series. I'm hoping that I'll get the chance to pick it up again one day, and the second time around, I will fall in love. As for now, I fail to see the light about how amazing this series is, and as such, Lion Heart isn't exactly a book I'm eagerly anticipating.
