I'm a big fan of Twitter, and last time I checked I was shocked that I almost have 500 followers! 490, to be exact. So when I hit 500, I think that deserves a give-away contest. Here's what you can win:
A HARDBACK COPY OF ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD!
Here's all you have to do. If you don't already follow me on Twitter, do so here. Then, just leave me a comment on this blog post with a recommendation for a good book--YA, MG, adult, nonfiction--because my to-be-read pile is actually low for once and I love getting good recommendations. That's it! So, so easy, and your chances of winning are super good. When I hit 500 followers, I'll pick a random winner from Random.org and announce the winner here and send them their book.
And if you haven't heard of ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD, I think you will adore it as much as I did. It's a modern-day ghost story with romance and terror and gorgeous writing.
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder 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. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, 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, but now stained red and dripping 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. And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
