Anna Dressed in Blood
I've been working on a novel about a haunted house and was trying to keep the story "real" but real can also be boring. After reading Anna DIB, I was able to see that my story was mundane. It might have true facts and bits and pieces that are truly horrifying but most of the everyday life is dull.
No one wants to read about what we ate for breakfast . . . over and over again.
Reading Anna DIB helped me see that fiction can be so freeing.
I loved how this book stepped outside reality and made fantasy fun...well, if you don't mind people dying and dealing with ghosts ;D
I would totally recommend Anna Dressed in Blood to all young adults and even to adults who feel young ;D
