Book I Covet: Girl of Nightmares (Anna #2) by Kendare Blake

Why Michelle covets this book: Anna Dressed in Blood was my favorite paranormal read of 2011--it was one of the few paranormal YAs that truly made me excited to read paranormal YA again.

I'm counting down the days I can get my hands on Girl of Nightmares. After the ending of Anna, I am dying to know what happened to Anna... I seriously need this book NAO!!

WARNING: If you haven't read Anna Dressed in Blood and hate spoilers, don't read the summary for Girl of Nightmares below. It totally spoils Anna.

(Tor Teen; out August 7, 2012)
It's been months since the ghost of Anna Korlov opened a door to Hell in her basement and disappeared into it, but ghost-hunter Cas Lowood can't move on.

His friends remind him that Anna sacrificed herself so that Cas could live—not walk around half dead. He knows they're right, but in Cas's eyes, no living girl he meets can compare to the dead girl he fell in love with.

Now he's 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.

What book(s) do you "covet" this week?
Leave a comment with a link so we can check your WoW of the week too.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series I am going to be doing here. It will feature books I am very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is similar to the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. However, some of the books may already be published and others may still be in pre-order. I will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available. Click on the WoW image on the left to join in!
