Halloween Book Covers Tag

Caro did this tag and I knew I had to do it too! I love book covers and Halloween, so this is too perfect. I am going to attempt to use only books that I have read! The tag was originally created by Kit @ Metaphors and Moonlight.

💀 Skull/Skeleton/Bones 💀

I have read more books with bones on the cover than I realized, but the cover of Summer Sons is one of my favourites. There is something so hauntingly beautiful about it!

🎃 Pumpkin 🎃

I am actually currently listening to Death Overdue and having a good time with it! I love that the balloons on the cover are pumpkins. I honestly think that cozy mysteries have the cutest covers!

🩸 Blood 🩸

Could there be a more perfect cover than the one for The Weight of Blood?

🐍 Spider, Bats, or other Creepy Creatures 🐍

The cover of Sundial is one that has really grown on me! The snake wrapping itself around the skull is so effective!

🔮 Something Witchy 🔮

A charming cover for a delightful book! I simply adore The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches and the cover is adorably witchy and perfect.

✋🏻 Severed Body Part ✋🏻

I know the hands on the cover of The Death of Jane Lawrence aren’t technically severed but I think it works! The fact that the hands are being sewn together gets to me!

🌕 Full Moon 🌕

Everything about the cover of Daughter of the Moon Goddess is stunning, including the full moon.

☠️ Cemetery ☠️

I was struggling with this one until I remembered The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy. This is one of my favourite covers of the year!

🏠 Haunted house 🏠

I could have used Just Like Home for the blood prompt as well, but I thought that this was an interesting take on a haunted house.

👻 Ghost 👻

Deep in Providence isn’t your typical ghost cover and I think that what they did with it is super effective. It is so sombre and haunting.

👹 Classic Monster (vampire, werewolf, mummy, etc.) 👹

The vampire on the cover of The Lost Girls is so classic and campy, which perfectly matches the story itself.

🍬 Candy 🍬

I am cheating because I haven’t read Candy Coated Murder, but it is on my TBR. It was just too perfect for this prompt, so I couldn’t resist.

🎭 Someone in a Costume/Mask 🎭

I couldn’t find anything that really worked for this one, so I settled on Follow Me to Ground!

🧡 Orange and Black 🖤

I love the colour palette for She Who Became the Sun!

😱 Something Creepy 😱

The girl on the cover of Extasia is looking into my soul and it gives me chills!
