Yes,this ghost face makes me read the content as a result of suspense in it.

The "Ghost face" on the cover was the first thing that made me want to read the book. I was curious to find out if the "Ghost face" was going to be mentioned frequently in the story. I was also curious to find out if the murders in the book were going to be similar to the murders in the Scream movies.

I enjoy horror, and when I saw the Ghost Face on the cover, I was curious and intrigued. I haven't had the chance to read the book yet, but I may have to look into it and see what it's all about.

Honestly, it evoked mixed feelings for me. It takes me back to 90s slasher movies, which I enjoy but I wasn't sure it was going to be an original story. But it was!

Honestly, as one of the best slasher films series in the whole horror genre, I think it was a strong, intelligent marketing move. I instantly was interested in what the story was about!

Horror is not my preferred genre so the cover definitely did not do anything towards motivating me to pick up the book. But I think it would quickly grab the attention of horror lovers.

I admit that when I first saw the cover I feel like it's gonna be something similar to Scream. When I read what most people said about it, I became curious. I might end up reading it one of these days.

The cover didn’t do it for me, but then pure horror isn’t my genre. For people who like horror, it would be quite compelling. The blood-dripping font adding to the message.

The 'Ghost face' on the cover makes the book fascinating..eye catching and puzzled with what horror it will be. :D
