This weekend I'm going to continue reading Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake, I feel like I'm lagging behind on this series as it came out ages ago but it actually hasn't been out that long in the UK I mean we haven't even got the second book available in store yet. I don't like how we don't have some books here that are in every other country, it makes me sad to think that us British folk haven't got the good stuff. Anyway, I've decided to read this as its been sitting on my to be read pile for a number of months now and I feel sad looking at it waiting for me so hopefully it'll be a good read, I'm in the mood for some hot ghost hunting action. Let the hunting commence!
If you are like me and don't know what the book is about I have left the synopsis and information about the book below. I hope you all have a great reading weekend and if you aren't reading anything then have a lovely time with whatever you are doing :)
Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake
Released 5th July 2012(UK)
Published by Orchard Books
Paperback, 373 Pages
Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story...
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
