The Blogoween prompt for today is “Favourite Halloween/Fall Covers.” Today’s Blogoween host is Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward. I’m also going to combine today’s prompt with Tuesday Intros (hosted by I’d Rather Be at the Beach), because I’ve just started reading one of the books below and I love the intro!
I actually have very few books that fit this prompt well. This is probably because I have just started reading more thriller and horror novels. Two I love are:
This gorgeous edition of Dr. Jekyll and My. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.
As well as this delightfully creepy cover. The other version I’ve seen around is gorgeous as well!
Now for Tuesday Intros, featuring This House is Haunted by John Boyne:
I blame Charles Dickens for the death of my father.
In tracing the moment where my life transformed from serenity to horror, twisting the natural into the unspeakable, I find myself seated in the parlour of our small terraced home near Hyde Park, observing the frayed edges of the hearth rug and wondering whether it might be time to invest in a new one or try to repair it myself.”
I love how the novel opens by foreshadowing the death of her father as well as the horror and unspeakable things to come. Plus you really have to wonder how Charles Dickens could be blamed for her father’s death…
I am about a third of the way through This House is Haunted, and I am enjoying it thus far! As a newbie horror reader, it’s easing me in nicely.
Since it kind of goes with the prompt, here’s a nice little autumn-coloured collection of some of my books:
I’m excited to see everyone’s favourite Halloween/Fall covers!
