20 Spooky YA Books That Will Get You In The Halloween Mood
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Nothing says Halloween like a good ghost story. Kendare Blake‘s Anna Dressed in Blood landed on NPR‘s list of the Top 5 Young Adult Novels of 2011 and Kirkus‘s Best Teen Books of the Year, and the young adult thriller still packs a spooky punch. Cas Lowood took up his father’s ghost killing mantle after the patriarch was gruesomely killed by one of his targets. Now, the younger Lowood travels the country in search of the murderous dead. Searching for a local legend, Cas discovers the spirit called Anna Dressed in Blood is like no ghost he’s ever faced. Tangled in a web of curses and rage, Anna kills any person who’s entered her former home, but for reasons unknown, Cas’s life is spared.
