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!
