Halloween Book Covers

I have done quite a few Halloween tags over the years, which you can find here, but I was looking for something new when I came across the Halloween Book Covers tag. I love a good book cover and this looked like a lot of fun. The idea is to share a book cover that represents each of the prompts. The tag was created by Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight.

All of the books on this list are ones I have read or that are on my TBR.

SKULLS/SKELETON/BONES

All the Stars and Teeth (All the Stars and Teeth, #1)

I am so surprised that I haven’t read more books with skulls on the cover! Unfortunately, for me the cover of All the Stars and Teeth is much better than the book itself. I think I went into it with my expectations too high!

PUMPKINS

I have a seen a lot of people reading cozy mysteries this year, and they look like a lot of fun! I know I am not the only one seeking out comforting reads this year. I recently stumbled upon Curses and Cauldrons, which is an anthology of paranormal cozy short stories, which seems like the perfect way to get into the genre. Also, how cute and festive is that cover!?

BLOOD

44074800. sy475

One of my favourite covers. It is so simple yet so striking!

SPIDERS, BATS, OR OTHER CREEPY CREATURES

40024139

I went with snakes for this prompt! I know there are a lot of books with snakes on the cover, but there is something so stunning about this one.

SOMETHING WITCHY

44774415. sy475

This has to be one of the cutest covers ever! It is a witch and a werewolf, so that is a bonus.

SEVERED BODY PART

FULL MOON

38139413

I instantly knew the book I was going to choose for this prompt. You have to see this cover in person- it is gorgeous!!

CEMETERY

52339313. sy475

Are we at all surprised?!

HAUNTED HOUSE

42188604. sy475

You wouldn’t expect a memoir to have a sort of haunted house on the cover, but In the Dream House was haunting in a different way. I think about this book often.

GHOST

9256414

Why was it so hard to find a book with a ghost on the cover? I guess because they are invisible? I read Hereafter ages ago and remember absolutely nothing about it. It is kind of a cool cover though!

CLASSIC MONSTER (VAMPIRE, WEREWOLF, MUMMY, FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER, ETC.)

10215349

My favourite book about vampires! I am not a fan of this edition, but I just had to share this book. A must read!

CANDY

35410511

I keep going back and forth on whether I want to read Baby Teeth. I have heard so many mixed things!

SOMEONE IN A COSTUME OR MASK

8573642

I know that Incarnate was popular years ago, but I never got around to reading it. I would love to read something Jodi Meadows has written on her own, as I did love My Lady Jane so much.

ORANGE AND BLACK

35504431. sy475

I did not have a lot of orange and black covers to choose from- doesn’t seem to be a very popular colour combinations. Turtles All the Way Down is probably my favourite John Green novel though!

SOMETHING CREEPY

41015038. sy475

Do I have to explain this one!? Look how creepy! It is no surprise that two of Grady Hendrix’s novels ended up on this list.
