Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.

Yet she spares Cas’s life.

What Is Virtual Book Club?

Virtual Book Club is a group run by us (Swoony Boys Podcast) and Fiction Fare. For the past year we’ve been running monthly read-a-longs that we’ve had a blast promoting. We got lots of feedback from people saying they just couldn’t commit to two nights, or couldn’t keep up with the reading pace. We brainstormed for solutions and Virtual Book Club was born.

Each month we will be selecting a Virtual Book Club book. You will have at least a month to read the book, or re-read if it’s something you’ve read before. Towards the ends of the month we will be one night where we can all get together on twitter and talk all about the book. We’ll share quotes, favorite scenes, and even have some giveaways!

How Will Books Be Selected?

We have a list of books that we’re dying to share with all of you! Sometimes we’ll pick one of our own, but we’ll also be checking in with all of you. You can CLICK HERE to fill out our book recommendation form! (There just might be a prize if your books gets selected!)

How Do You Participate?

  • Join our Facebook & Goodreads groups
  • Read (or re-read) the book
  • Participate in discussion questions throughout the month
  • Show up to the book club meeting on the last Thursday of the month
  • Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!
