Blogoween Post 2: Favorite Fall Covers

Happy Blogoween Friends! πŸŽƒπŸ‘»

This prompt is from Anthony at Keep Reading Forward. Please stop by and say BOO! πŸ‘»

There are a few book covers I’d like to frame and put on my wall. From January 2018, The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin is probably my favorite cover. And could it fit the theme any better?! (It’s also a really excellent book. Imagine you and your three siblings visited a fortune teller when you were a child and she told each one of you the date of their death. How would you live your life or would you do anything differently?)

Diane Setterfield has a new book coming out in January, Once Upon A River and I’m very drawn to the cover. Her 2006 title, The Thirteenth Tale was masterfully written and I’ll be talking about it in a future Blogoween post. Ms. Setterfield is a master storyteller.

Next up is the 2016 Ghostland by Colin Dickey, a California native. The cover is dark and feels a little like a tombstone which is just spooky enough. Since it’s about debunking and investigating ghost stories, I could definitely read this one. Anyone read it?

Lastly I picked a classic, the 1999 Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. The cover is lush and overgrown and even though it looks abandoned, the location looks peaceful (but only in the daylight). 😬

For the month of October, I’ve joined book bloggers Sam and Clo to celebrate BLOGOWEEN! πŸŽƒπŸ‘». I’ll be following some of the hosted prompts and encourage you to visit the hosts and show some love!

  1. These covers are gorgeous!! I love the one for Once Upon a River, it definitely intrigues me so I’ll have to look it up! The last one is so creepy! It looks like it would give me really bad nightmares (in a good way!)

    1. Thanks Mara and Happy Friday! If you’re on NetGalley you can request Once Upon A River. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘»πŸ˜

  2. The Immortalist cover is simply stunning and SOOO perfect for autumn! <3 I'm also very super intrigued by the Thirteenth Tale! That looks like it promises such a epic adventure! Great list!

    1. Thanks! πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ

  3. I think I’ve heard of The Immortalist before…and it does sound intriguing like, I feel if you knew when you were going to die it’d change how you lived your life? Cause it’d be on your mind constantly but also couldn’t that date shift and change depending on your own actions/choices? Love the list <3

    1. You’ve got to read it! Each sibling approaches it very differently!
