5 starsSometimes you read books that are visibly bad So bad, in fact, that they make you want to throw yourself head first out a window, but you keep on reading and reading You might even feel yourself losing your will to live about halfway through But somehow, by the end of the book, you end up liking it anyway because it entertained you The badness was just that entertaining Then, there are other books that are really good books, but just do nothing for you Anna Dressed in Blood was the latter for me There was nothing wrong with this book It s just that ghost books and I don t get along I typically stay away from only two paranormal creatures ghosts and zombies I probably would have never picked this book up on my Dear Kendare Blake,Sincerely,A girl who never sleeps with the lights off.
Before I jump into raving about this deliciously creepy book, I have to give you some backround details I don t do horror The only exception to my stay away from things that will disturb your beauty sleep rule is the summer I spent binge watching Supernatural, and let s just say that my motivations to start this series were far from noble.

5 starsNot many authors can scare you to death by eliciting vivid, gruesome imagery and, at the same time, take your breath away with sheer beauty of their prose I never expected Kendare Blake to be one of those authors that s why her book took me completely by surprise It was very different from what I thought it would be When I choose a book based on a beautiful cover and an intriguing title and yes, I really AM that shallow , especially one that none of my friends have read, I usually end up disappointed Anna Dressed in Blood undoubtedly looks amazing and has a memorable title, but the most interesting part is right where it should be between the covers.
