Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they suggest a new theme for bloggers to write about. This week’s topic was ‘book covers with Fall colours/vibes,’ so I decided to go with books with spooky vibes in honour of it being my favourite month of the year (despite the fact that it does NOT feel like October already).
The Kingdom of the Wicked cover is full of classic spooky objects to give it October vibes.
The UK edition of The Devouring Gray isn’t as dark as most of the others on this list, but I actually love the contrast of the neon letters and the fog.
The House of Salt and Sorrows cover makes me think of a dark and stormy night (which also really makes me want to read it more).
It’s been years since I read this book so I can’t speak for wether the content is all that spooky because I remember nothing, but I’ve always found this cover slightly creepy.
The black-and-white old photo style of this cover alongside the fact that the child is floating makes it seem so fitting for this time of year.
The Five is a non-fiction book telling the lives of the women killed by Jack the Ripper, which is a subject that I’ve always found chilling, but this cover somehow adds to the effect for me.
I love this cover, and the combination of the title, the red dress and the dark green background reminds me of a ghostly haunted house. I have no idea if that is a thing featured in this book, but I am excited to read it either way.
I mean the title alone for The Bloody Chamber is in itself spooky, but the cover only adds to it. I love how bold it is.
The colour palette of this cover is so autumnal, I can’t help but associate it with this time of year.
This cover is so striking and classically creepy, with the woman’s stare and the dark trees.
Have you read any of these? What did you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
