I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Anna Dressed in Blood

Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake I probably should have read this book closer to Halloween, but I got a hankering to read something spooky. Well, "Anna Dressed in Blood" certainly met the bill. There was plenty of spookiness and gore to go around, but somehow I never quite managed to fully connect with the characters. I found Anna's character fascinating though. Cas falling in love with her was a bit cheesy, but not too much of a shocker. I'm curious to see how things work out between them, especially considering Cas is a big, bad ghost killer. Talk about an ill-fated love, lol.

On a side note, I honestly had no idea what an athame was until I looked it up online. I was picturing a machete or something similar. I wish the author had described it a little better rather than the vague "my father's almighty athame."

The last few chapters were really enjoyable and definitely left me eager to read the next book in the series (from what I've read on Goodreads, it sounds like a real doozy of a read ;p). I will probably wait till this fall though because this genre is perfect for crisp, cool evenings and warm cups of apple cider.
