The Blood ConfessionThe Blood Confession by Alisa M. Libby

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I liked this book. It wasn't the kind of book that I couldn't wait to pick up and read but when I did, I was glad to be reading it. It is a historical fiction about Elizabeth Bathory, whom some people think that Bram Stoker developed his Dracula character from. I can say it is a def. possibility. The story starts out with Elizabeth held captive for crimes. It flips back and forth from current day to how she became captive. I am not sure how much is fiction and how much at it is facts, but it is a really interesting story. I plan to research a little bit more to find out what they really did know about her.

One thing that I thought is that the author would have made me feel for the character, but I never really did? Maybe it was how it was written and the author never intended that, or maybe I am heartless? LOl

In my opinion, this book is not for a younger crowd. It is bloody and gory at times and lots of death scenes. I don't think it is a necessary read, but if you like historical fiction, mixed in with a little scariness, you will enjoy this.

What kind of reader are you?
The Book Whore
Your a collector. You buy and buy (or borrow) books like your life depends on it. Your constantly broke and have a book on you at all times. Your running out of bookshelf space and your always reading a book. Sometime more than one! Your never without, whether at dinner, at work, hanging with friends, etc. You even have an emergency book stashed in your car! You want to read any and all books as possible.

The Book Tease
You try and try, but can never finish, or in some cases start a book. But it looks so dang pretty as a shelf ornament. You buy books that sound interesting, but when it comes down to it, you'd rather do something else with your time. You love books, but hate reading. The next time you decide to buy a book, just save your money because you know you'll never read it.

The Committer
You read. You enjoy reading. But you can never find that one AWESOME book that you've read before. So instead of trying to find a book just as good, you'll read that awesome book over and over until you've worn it out to the spine. You love that book so much you feel like a cheater when you find another book that's just as awesome.
