It’s quite frightening to think it’s now November, which means before you know it it’ll be Christmas!!

 

It’s safe to say I was rather determined to finish more books after last month. At the start of the month I had read 21 out of the 30 books I wanted to read this month.

 

In this post I wanted to share with you some of my favourite books not only perfect for Halloween, but perfect for the winter months drawing closer. There are the classics like Frankenstein and Dracula, or you could go for a short story such as The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories by Tim Burton. This is such a quickly little book filled with illustrations just as wonderfuly bizarre.

 

Or for something to really sink your teeth into try Anna Dressed in Bloodby Kendare Blake (review) and the sequel Girl of Nightmares (review). I won’t lie I was a tad nervous about reading these as I don’t do “scary” books, but I really loved these. But let’s not talk about what happened in the basement or the forest.

Great Mood and Atmosphere!
Girl of Nightmares - Kendare Blake

It is recommended you read Anna Dressed in Blood before you read this one.

(Possible spoilers. You’ve been warned)

 

I loved loved loved this book!!! I demand another one! (although I believe it’s only a duology - for now)

 

The creepy factor was good and well done throughout the novel. (The forest part..oh my lord that was so well written I’ll be remembering that scene for a while now). This is definitely a book you would read for the fall, it’s got perfect atmosphere and mood. Cas as a character pulls the book through and does the book justice.

 

His relationship was Anna is well done. It’s bittersweet but you know it was bound to happen. As for the other characters, wasn’t too crazy about Carmel’s actions. What the heck...how she brushed off Thomas just made me so mad I wanted to go in and tell her to smarten up and stop being such a twit.  

 

Another character I enjoyed reading was Jestine. She’s a female version of Cas and it was nice of both of them trading barbs here and there. Wish we could see more of her (in the future perhaps? One day? Please?)

 

Overall, great ending, great read. Fighting scenes were also notable. Sad to see this go but who knows I hope to see Cas in the future!

The Ghost Hunters are Back!...
Girl of Nightmares - Kendare Blake,August Ross

Cas and his crew of ghost hunters are back in the final book in the Anna Dressed in Blood Duology. Anna sacrificed herself in the last book to save Cas and now he's seeing her everywhere he goes. He thinks something is wrong and she's not where she's suppose to be and has somehow ended up in an evil place instead... 

 

So I never really fell in love with either book but I really liked the characters a lot; enough to see what they were up to in this last book. I would say Cas and Thomas are my favorite characters. Cas has this sassy, sarcastic personality that's pretty hilarious and Thomas is his best friend that can pretty much read minds so he always knows what Cas is thinking. The two of them together really made the story. I listened to the audio version and the narrator is pretty good so you really get the full effect of the personalities of all of the characters. What I really enjoyed the most about this one was when Cas and the rest of his ghost hunter crew traveled to London and then a haunted forest in the Scottish Highlands. I didn't think either book was really scary though. They were both fun and a little creepy here and there so if you're looking for a "keep the lights on" type of book, I would probably choose something else.

Reading progress update: I've read 70%.
Girl of Nightmares - Kendare Blake,August Ross

Listening to the audio and the narrator is pretty good but I just want to tell Cas to find Anna and send her on her way already! She's just a ghost for heaven's sake! But hey, if that's what turns him on- to each his own...
