Bleeding Violet

An original plot, a unique protagonist, and plenty of weirdness makes Reeve’s first novel a satisfying read for older teens. I should warn you though that both Hanna and her mother are quite promiscuous.

Unfortunately, the execution of that idea left a lot to be desired.

Violef About This Book. The characters are engaging and ddia have signature quirks. Hanna is strange but is surprisingly lovable as a heroine she has a love interest Wyatt who is equally wierd although she does tend to use him a little bit. Sie ist im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes wahnsinnig und unberechenbar, aber trotzdem liebenswert.

Only nowhere in the entire book is this universe explained at all. Did she also manage to write a good book in the process?

The characters in this novel were amazing, as well as the description. Along these lines, the topic of sex, especially between Wyatt and Hanna is somewhat a fade to black kind of variety, which I couldn’t understand at all.


I was on the fence on what grade to give Bleeding Violet because I wasn’t sure what to think. Rreeves ignored him and crept through the unfriendly gate and up the porch steps. He also had a few problems to deal with other than the monsters attacking people. Which is also what I love about Bleeding Violet, it makes you happy, yet freak out.

If your not the type of person who loves the strange, the freaky, and the interesting, then you will not fall for Bleeding Violet. And here I am, tall ish and brunette and brown as sugar. I can’t in good concious give this book more than 2 stars. That was the most insane reading coaster I’ve ever been taken on.

Fingered the brass knob.

Not how it manifests, not what its symptoms are, not how it works, none of it. Hanna is fearlessly original in her interactions with the Porterenes: Despite its messy tango with reality as we know it, Bleeding Violet works within the parameters it establishes, and is actually quite careful about set up and pay off, so that everything makes sense and feels earned.

This is how you know you belong. Normal reevves the sense that every town she’s lived in has followed the rules of nature as we know them.


It wasn’t typical, but it still made me smile and root for their budding relationship.


I think I’ve been left speechless. Hanna was the saving grace for me and one character I can’t help but applaud for her bravery and facing down those who feel she is not worthy or important. And kitty got claws.

Doors and cards and everything. I averted my eyes and presented the sandwiches, like an offering. Bleeding Violet has a perfect balance needed of a good novel, humor, love, action, fantasy, alive dolls.

Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves

She wears only purple to honor her dead father, whose ghost speaks to her. So, by making Hanna “insane” to start, the author gets to avoid having her character react to the insanity around her. Rosalee is very much the absentee mother and does not allow anyone into her life. I like complicated female characters, and we get them so goddamn rarely.

Hanna shrugs it off, and is more concerned that she didn’t get all the bloodstains out of her dress. Well, some popular YA novels I can think of!
