Welcome to the second session of the Off Our Shelves blog book club. We are reading
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce and this week, we read chapters 6-11. If you would like an overview of the club, please check out this post. Once again, there may be spoilers in this or any of the other Off Our Shelves posts. None of the Off Our Shelves blog book club members will be held responsible if you break down crying because you read a spoiler.
This section’s discussion question: What do you think about the relationship between Silas and Rosie? I’ll answer this question in today’s post.
I think Silas and Rosie are made for each other and that their relationship is actually quite sweet. They both work together and with Scarlett to hunt off the Fenris. However, while they know that hunting is important, hunting is not as big of a part of their lives as it is for Scarlett. They both want to have another life, a more normal one. They both wish to have a life full of traveling for fun and trying new hobbies instead of just hunting all the time. Given the many similarities that they have, they are perfect for each other.
Then again, Rosie’s relationship with Silas is making her more unlikeable in my opinion. First of all, she’s sixteen. Does she really have any business dating, especially when she’s supposed to be helping Scarlett save the world by hunting Fenris? Her sister is trying to do a noble thing here. Scarlett is working with all her heart and soul to save the world. Rosie should be doing the same thing. She’s still a teen. She doesn’t need to date Silas if she has other responsibilities. I think what I’m really trying to say is that Rosie and Silas are a perfect fit, but they should wait until they’re done saving the world to date each other.
Club members and anyone else who has read the book: What do you think of the relationship between Silas and Rosie? You can discuss it in the comments or write your own post about it.
