Book Traveling Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Catia and Danielle. Each week everyone picks a book related to that week’s theme, then you write a blog post explaining explain why you choose that book and spotlight all the different covers from different countries. To find out more check out about BTT go to the Goodreads group!
This week’s theme is: HALLOWEEN IS HERE! Choose a spooky read that you have either read or want to read.
Now, I’m not a big horror fan, so I really don’t have a lot of novels to pick from, but whenever I think of the book which scared me the most when I read it I always come back to Stephen King’s The Stand. This story giving me the damn creeps for weeks after I put it down, specifically the first half of the book dealing with the flu pandemic. The scenario so damn realistic it horrified me.
The cover of the book which I read many years ago. I always thought it was somewhat weird, but it is the one my memories always grab hold of when I think of The Stand.
Favorite is really a misnomer here, because I don’t really love either of these covers. They are okay. The best of the rest of the bunch perhaps, but not anything to get real excited about.
LEAST FAVORITE COVERS
It was actually really hard to narrow my “Least Favorite Cover”examples down to just four. Honestly, I hate nearly all the covers for this classic novel. None of them capture the essence of what the book is about in my opinion.
So that is my Book Traveling Thursdays: Halloween is Here Edition. Agree or disagree with my book selection and my covers? Let me know.
