WoW: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

"Waiting On" Wednesdays is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine, where you highlight a book which you are dying to read.

My pick for this week is "Girl of Nightmares" by Kendare Blake which is book two in the Anna series. Clicking on the picture will bring you to the Goodreads page.

Goodreads description:

In this follow-up to Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas begins seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he’s asleep, and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong. These aren’t just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.

Cas doesn’t know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn’t deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it’s time for him to return the favor.

I had never read a story about ghosts until reading "Anna Dressed in Blood", and I really wasn't sure about the subject at all. As soon as I started it, however, I immediately fell in love with it. It's an amazing story with fantastic characters. I devoured this book in no time and have ever since then wanted to have book number two in my hands. Unfortunately, I will have to wait a few more months.

"Girl of Nightmares" is set to be released on August 7th, 2012 by Tor Teen.

I thought the cover for "Anna Dressed in Blood" was stunning, but this one is just as gorgeous and so haunting.


Is there a book you are very excited about and which is going to be released within the next few months? I would love to know what books you are dying to read - maybe I can find a few more to add to my reading pile.


  1. I haven't even read Anna Dressed in Blood T_T

    1. You should definitely try and get a hold of it, Alba! It's fantastic, seriously! You would not regret it, I promise! :)

  2. I LOOOOOVED Anna Dressed In Blood and am sooooooo excited for this one! And you're right. Both of the covers for these books are amazing... beautiful covers, but haunting and creepy and perfect for the story.

    1. You're absolutely right, they ARE perfect for the story. I'm excited but also a little bit worried about book 2 though. I can't even begin to imagine what's going to happen... The suspense is killing me. *lol*

  3. I'm really excited for this book too. I loved Anna Dressed in Blood.

  4. Anna Dressed in Blood was amazing. I can't wait to crack the spine on Girl of Nightmares. Isn't the cover fabulous...and creepy?
