Review on the blog: Review of Anna Dressed In Blood (Anna, #1) by Kendare Blake Oooooookay, that was spooky to say the least. Never read a horror book before (hell, I don't even like watching horror movies) and I probably won't read something else of the same type, other than Girl Of Nightmares, the sequel to Anna Dressed In Blood because I just can't stay like this without knowing how it all comes to an end. But really, this book gave me nightmares I'm telling you and even with that I couldn't stop reading it. Yes, that's how good it is. I was sucked in since the very beginning. And then there's another thing that drew me in. It was the fact that the story was told from Cas's POV, a guy's POV. We're used to having girls POV. But I don't think I've ever read anything from a guy's POV before. And well that was new and cool and kind of refreshing. I was starting to think only us girls are the ones who get to be the legendary storytellers XD This book had a truly intense storyline like anything I've ever watched or heard of. The plot was quite original and hooking, about a ghost-hunter boy who was never really part of the real world, always immersed in killing the undead and trying to prove himself worthy and capable of avenging his father, and then comes a powerful mass-murdering ghost girl with a dark twisted story behind it all and just a sad little innocent girl as a victim in it. Anna 's story truly moved me, and I couldn't believe how anyone could do what was done to her. And although I was kind of creeped out by how Cas (originally Theuseus Casio, well that's one hell of a name don't you think? XD) was absolutely sucked in the ghosts world and getting so close to Anna while still neglecting the real world and its occupants although he did start making some friends, which as quite an achievement for him, but in a way I understood the bond that he shared with Anna and how they could have grown to love each other. Absolutely a must-read that will leave you breathless and aching for the next book, which I'm lucky I already have. Kendare Blake has such an exceptional writing style with a knack for truly awesome plots, and I'm so glad I got to read this book of hers. And I'll always be happy to pick on any of her other works.
