Waiting on Wednesday: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

I'm still waiting...


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

What Drew me in?

At first glance it was the cover but once I did some research into it I realized the description was just as creepy and compelling. [YES creepy is a good thing to me]. *goes to stare at cover*

just sayin, 


  1. This is on my list this week too along with CoFA. I love the cover and it does sound super creepy!

  2. This was my pick a few weeks ago because it sounds amazing! I can't wait for it to come out and you're right, creepy is a good thing sometimes.

    My WoW

  3. I'm loving this cover... it's so creepy cool! :)


Let me know what you think was an epic win or an epic fail, or if you feel like it make robot sound like beep beep boo bop. Really I could careless just keep it clean.
