10/27/2016: Halloween is here! Choose a spooky
read that you have either read or want to read.
For this week, I am going to go with a Spooky book that I really want to
read. After finished and LOVING We Have Always Lived In The Castle by
Shirley Jackson, I’ve been wanting to read more and MORE from her. The
book I’ve had my eye on for a long time now is, The Bird’s Nest. I don’t
know why it is taking me so long to buy it, but I can’t wait to get
my hands on it! It sounds SO GOOD! Nice and creepy,
just like I like it! 😉
1.) US Penguin Classic 2.) UK Penguin Classic 3.) Kindle Edition.
I do LOVE the US cover, but there’s just something about the UK cover,
that makes me want it on my shelf! It’s just SO dramatic. I LOVE IT! 😀
1.) US Mass Market Paperback 2.) US or UK Mass Market Paperback 3.) Italian.
I was going to say that this weeks Least favorite cover was a tie between
#1 and #2, but the more I look at #2, the more I hate it. It’s just
too cringe worthy! What is that?!

I love the Penguin Classic cover. The mass market paperbacks are horrible!
I know! It’s like they pick the worst covers for them!
Penguin Classic covers always look nice!
So much Shirley Jackson this week to go along with this theme! I’ve actually never heard of her works before today, so it’s great to see how prolific her writing is!
Strangely, I kind of really love the ugly mass market paperbacks. They’re terrible and horrifying — which are exactly the kind of feelings a horror novel cover should incite.
That is true. They do match the horror feel. They just aren’t my taste…It also could be that they are mass market, and those are tiny, and I hate those tiny books! 😉
Agreed on tiny books! They allow for more shelf space, but at what cost? WEIRD COVERS.
The U.S. penguin cover is cool but in a really weird way, I think I prefer the UK design. It’s got a sort of elegance to it.
I agree. The US is more artistic.
I haven’t read any Shirley Jackson before, but I’ll be checking her out now! These covers look suitably creepy but I love the blue US Penguin Classic’s cover! Great post 🙂
I really like the UK Penguin Classic cover but I also like how abstract the US Penguin cover is!
love the covers you have chosen!
