TSS: Frightening Book Cover Edition

Is there anything scarier than a three-handed femme fatale? (Can you find the three hands in this book cover photo?)

I don't know. I attended a Halloween party last night and the costumes were incredibly inventive. They included Betty Draper. A gold-digger. Two pirates. A wizard. A Wall Street protester. night stand.

Hope you've had a terrific week. I finally finished Charles Frazier's NIGHTWOODS and simply loved it, especially as the tension and drama ramps up at the conclusion.

I also finished a terrific middle-grade book titled CALL ME HOPE by Gretchen Olson. It features a young girl's introduction to The Diary of Anne Frank and the impression the lessons of that story impart on her as she struggles with a challenging home life.

And in writing news, I'm feverishly working on the edits to my own book for my editor. It is pure joy to write THAT sentence!

What new books have captured your attention this week?

  1. Oh my gosh, that is too creepy. It's like there's someone hiding behind her.

  2. That is a very creepy cover!

    I like the sound of "working on edits for my editor."

    I'm looking forward to your new one. I should have a new one out soon, too.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. lol at the halloween costumes!

    my daughter and i are reading The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood. it's book #2 in the series called The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place.

    The first book was really good too. We're hoping there will be a third book soon.

    Very beautiful language, it's fun to read aloud!

  4. I can just imagine the guy looking down and thinking..
    Now wait a minute - who'se hand am I holding then?? LOL

  5. What a variety of costumes. Wonder if the person who dressed up as Betty Draper acted as bitchy as she can.

  6. Karen: That picture is too funny! If I’d just had a picture like that of me and my college boyfriend, it could’ve tipped me off that Mark was cheating on me! Just finished “Night Circus” and LOVED it! Good luck on your edits!
    Cheers, BCC
