Bleeding Violet Review


Love can be a dangerous thing....

Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna's tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.

But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she's far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.

My Review

Bleeding Violet is unlike any book you will ever read in your life. This is an extremely crazy book. I'm glad I don't live in Portero, TX!!! I would fear for my life. Follow Hannah, a bipolar girl, as she tries to be accepted by her mom. This book had me reading non-stop from the get go. This unique book will have you captivated, even if you disagree with the character's behavior. Dia Reeves has a wild imagination that she put to the test in Bleeding Violet. I highly recommend this book for fans of paranormal/thrillers/fantasy. This book has monsters,ghost, and basically the whole town is like a secret society from the outside world. I will be looking forward to this debut Author's next book.

You have an awesome site that I am now following ... loving this blog hop (",).

I'm trying to convince my boyfriend to buy me Bleeding Violet, because I've bought far too many books lately ... it's not working.

Have a great day!

Thanks Bella! :) Bleeding Violet is a great read. Maybe your boyfriend is just scared that the book will have your attention and he wont't.
