TBR TUESDAY: Anna Dressed in Blood

My favorite day of the week! The day we share or To Be Read list and hope maybe we might hit someone else's fancy. Lately, with my rewrites happening, I've slipped off the edge and plummeted into the dark. So...if you're into the dark and creepy like I am, this will be right up your alley!

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.

“Anna Dressed in Blood is easily one of my favorite books of all time and is exactly what I'd hoped it would be: Gorgeous, brutal, heart-breaking, merciless, and cool as Hell. This is the kind of book I've been dying to read!”—Courtney Allison Moulton, author of Angelfire

"I loved Cas! And the world he inhabits is terrifyingly vivid and utterly compelling. Get ready to sleep with the lights on because this book has teeth. Sharp ones.”--Stacey Kade, author of The Ghost and the Goth series

Anna Dressed in Blood is a dark and intricate tale, with a hero who kills the dead but is half in love with death himself. By the end of the book, you will be too. Spellbinding and romantic. --Cassandra Clare, NYT Bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments series

  1. I'm SO looking forward to this book. It sounds so original. And my eagerness obviously has nothing to do with my weakness for ghosts whatsoever.
    I'm gonna get to this as soon as I have some money in my pockets :P

  2. Yes. I'm seriously looking forward to this book, in like so many ways. We don't see that many paranormal stories that involve ghosts, as much as we see vampires and werewolves, so that's another thing about this book that I'm totally drawn to.

  3. Oh I got to talk to the author on a chat recently and am really excited about reading this one.

    Here's my teaser: http://www.stuckinbooks.com/2011/05/teaser-tuesday_31.html


  4. Oooh that looks great! I love creepy books . . . creepy movies on the other hand, not so much.


Breaths that matter...
