Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake

anna dressed in bloodI went into this book expecting it to be nothing more than a fun, silly teen horror/thriller novel. That’s exactly what it ended up being, and I read it all in a single afternoon. The plotting was perfect, and the narrator tickled me because he reminded me of my good friend Oisin, who I’ve never met in person but have exchanged emails with on a daily basis for almost seven years now. Every once in awhile, Cas (the narrator) would say something that sounded like it had been lifted directly from Oisin’s emails, and I found myself picturing my friend battling ghosts and wielding an athame as I read. It was awesome.

Note: I’m kicking myself for not writing down the specific line that most reminded me of Oisin. Something about a cat and how it would have been hilarious to see the cat flailing when the narrator woke up and jumped out of bed, dislodging said cat. I should go back to the library, find the book, write down the line, and paste it in here…
