Wishlist Wednesday #2: Anna Dressed in Blood

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper.  This is an opportunity to share a book that is on your wishlist - whether it's one that has been on your list for a long time, or one you just found out about.

This Wednesday, I chose to feature Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake.  I've been dying to get this ever since it came out, and since the sequel, I want it even more.  For those who might not be familiar with this one, here is the book description from Goodreads:

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. 

I hope I can manage to add this one to my library sooner rather than later.  What's on your wishlist?
