"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 thoughts:
Bleeding Violet is one of those books that take something that mesmerizes you and twists it with something much deeper than just a town full of monsters.
Hanna, the heroine, has a pill for everything you can think of. And probably more. Her views on everything was something that had you interested from the start. Her character was very likable and I felt myself being drawn in with her mental struggles with everything going on. Like the desperation to build a relationship with someone you love, but barely know. Fitting in somewhere you can't necessarily figure out. All that jazz, basically. And Wyatt, oh Wyatt. He's the love interest of Hanna. He's the tough guy who does what he's told and nothing more. But doesn't like that idea. The two's relationship was steamy and well played out. It wasn't too fast, and it wasn't fairytale like. They had their fights, their issues. It was normal and built up perfectly.
I loved the idea behind this novel. It had everything you would want in a supernatural book. Do you consider it a supernatural? Whatever, anyways. You have your love interest, the monsters, the mystery, the craziness (literally), and the magic. It tied in wonderfully. Even though I found this book really weird, it was so in a good way. I definitely recommend to anyone that loves this kind of stuff! :)
