Anna Dressed in Blood By Kendare Blake

Hey there! I hope that you all have been having a great 2012 so far! 2012 has treated me very well. The library I work at, Barbara Bush Library @ Cypress Creek, just celebrated its 35th birthday. It was a lot of fun and I was so grateful to be a part of the festivities!

This week's Horror selection is Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. Anna Dressed in Blood is about teenager, Cas Lowood, who hunts and kills murderous ghosts. Armed with his father's athame, Cas and his family travel all over following local tips and killing ghosts. His latest tip takes him to Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada where he finds local legend, Anna, also known as Anna dressed in blood. Anna was murdered in the late 1950s on her way to a school dance, blood staining her white dress. She now haunts her parental home and kills anyone that dares cross her path. Until she meets Cas...

Anna Dressed in Blood was the first YA novel to give me nightmares. It was chilling and haunting and beautifully written. I loved Anna even if she terrified me. I recently found out that Anna Dressed in Blood is the first in a series. The sequel, Girl of Nightmares, is expected to release in August 2012! Yay!!

I hope you take a chance on Anna Dressed in Blood. I promise you will love it!
