Friday Face Off: Halloween

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“Trick or Treat”

This weeks theme: A Halloween inspired cover

This was a weirdly hard theme for me.  I LOVE Halloween but I also HATE scary things, and most Halloween books are scary.  The few I have read are kids books and only have one cover.  So, I picked a book that is super Halloween, but its one I haven’t read.

My Choice: Attack of the Jack-O’-Lanterns


Scholastic 1998 | Scholastic 2005 | Bayard 2001

Omnibus Verlag 2002 | Mondadori 1998 | Ediciones B

Scholastic 1996 | Gramedia Pustaka Utama 1997 | Turtleback 1997

This is Goosebumps #48.  I had no idea there were so many books in this series!  I haven’t read any of them and I didn’t see the movie, because I am a wimp when it comes to scary stories.  Also, randomly, 48 is my jersey number in softball, so thats cool!

Least Favorites:




I know this doesn’t have the telltale Goosebumps font, but I love the blue, and the dog with the Jack-O’-Lantern is super cute and he doesn’t get lost on this cover!

Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!

  1. Oh what a fabulous cover for Halloween! I think your book is the most appropriate one I’ve seen so far:). And I also agree with your choice – I think the vivid blue background allows the orange pumkins to sing off the cover.

  2. Haha – this made me snort out loud. I even like your least liked covers. Your winner though is great – is it just me or do the characters on the cover look like they’re about to break out into a dance routine?

  3. The Jack-O’-Lanterns sure scream Halloween so this is a great choice. I haven’t read any of the goosebumps neither but I like the first-row middle one. It is basically the same as the german blue background. I like it with the dog and the scary forest

  4. Yes, great choice. I love the colours and the pumpkin people. I also disregarded the same two you did. At first I didn’t even realize they were pumpkins on the one. What a great Hallowe’en cover. My son read almost all the goosebumps books when he was young. I have a box of at least 30 in the crawl space waiting for my grandson to get old enough to read them.

  5. Goosebumps! My daughter is just beginning to show and interest in these books–kind of. She’s not sure. LOL I’m with you on your choice for the winner.
