Bleeding Violet

This is the story of Hanna Järvinen a girl who suffers from hallucinations and some other mental illnesses, she wears only purple and still have conversations with her dead father. Hanna arrives to the twisted town of Portero in search of her Mother whom, by the way, abandoned her since she was a little baby. Portero’s days are all about weird events and dark enigmas, Hanna will have to prove to everyone that she arrived in order to stay, no matter what the consequences are.

Bleeding Violet also has its romantic side. Hanna’s relationship with Wyatt, a local, gives the book a seductive and steamy side.

Dia Reeves made an excellent job writing and developing the story and its characters, it really keeps you attached to the book until the end, I would recommend this book but not to everyone, on my personal point of view, older teens or adults are the target audience for this book due to its fair amount of sexual dialogue and profanity content. If you are comfortable with that kind of content the book will embark you in an amazing reading endeavor.
