To me, the ghost face cover does not make me feel as if I want to read the book more or less. To be honest, the cover does not look any scary nor very interesting at all. I have seen it a lot in the scary movie so the ghost face seems comical. I usually rely on the preface or epilogue or summary to determine whether I want to read a book more or less. But it sometimes changes depending on the actual storyline.

I'm not a fan of the overall layout of the cover, but the face did intrigue me on the book.

The cover is a definite invitation to be read. Really good work done on that aspect of the book.

Less - unfortunately I found it too cliché, but then again, I should stop judging books by their covers...!

Ghosts depicts horror or mystery to me and I like that! So yes, it is part of why I want to read it.

The ghost face resonates with the idea of fear in the title of the book. It gives a lot of resemblance to the banal usage of such covers in movies. It is quite creative of the author to use such a cover to attract readers. It definitely made me want to read it.

I'm not familiar with scream but ive seen it before and seeing it on a totally unrelated cover sortof made me think that it was copy and pasted or the book was a fan fic. I think the book is great but the cover looks like something you might search on google images. :eusa-think:

it didn't make me want to read it at all, it was scary at first, staring at the cover felt like falling into a dark hole but the premise of the book itself is nice if only one can get past the cover.
