“If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!”
This weeks theme: A horror cover
If you know me, you know I don’t do horror. No Scary Movies, No Haunted Houses, and Definitely no Horror Books. But I was also a really good kid in school and wouldn’t have dreamt of not reading an assigned book. There were quite a few assigned books that fell into my definition of Horror:
- Crime and Punishment
- The Metamorphosis
- Jane Eyre
- The Picture of Dorian Gray
- The Jungle
- Brave New World
- Heart of Darkness
- Lord of the Flies
- The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
I know its probably a stretch to call some of these “Horror” but they creeped me out enough that I included them!
My Choice: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

There are 88 pages containing 2,625 editions of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde on Goodreads, so I just randomly picked covers that caught my eye.
Surprisingly I actually really like a lot of these covers, but these two are easily my favorites. No matter how many times I scroll through these two just kept catching my eye.
I just love the way his face is obviously different on the two sides but the change is somehow subtle too. I think it is really well done, and captures the story really well!
