Title: Girl of Nightmares
Author: Kendare Blake
Year Published: 2012
Synopsis: 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.
Why?: I absolutely loved Anna Dressed in Blood, and so naturally I've been dying to read this sequel. I can't wait to find out what happened to Anna, how Cas and friends are dealing with her loss, and if Cas is still killing ghosts.
Expectations: I expect this book to be just as scary as Anna Dressed in Blood, but in a different way. I also expect Cas to be very depressed because of losing Anna, but I also hope he's matured some since the last book. Not that I didn't love Cas before - I just think the experience of losing the girl he loves will have caused him to re-examine himself.
Judging a book by its cover: I think this cover is absolutely gorgeous. I love that it's similar to the cover of Anna Dressed in Blood. I would definitely pick this up off of a shelf if I saw it somewhere.
