The cover was actually the reason I didn't read the book! It was way too freaky. But then again, I am a wuss about these things...

The cover is a bit scary in my view, but I love the title though and thought it is very apt.

I think the cover did a great job at saying "creepy". Without even reading anything about the book, I look at the title/cover and instantly know this is going to be a spooky read! Instantly made want to read what it is about! Wonderful job, I'm a sucker for awesome covers!

I thought that both the title of the book and the cover were appropriate for the horror genre. The book was both frightening, and contained extremely edgey content. I guess the answer is yes, and yes to the question of whether I liked the cover and the title.

I thought it was very captivating and eye-catching, but it is also the kind of cover that you would need to want to read that type of genre. It can be a bit unsettling for some, but I love it!

I thought the title and cover of the book were intriguing, and were part of the reason I was interested in reading the book. However, I thought they were a let down because I didn't think the book lived up to its potential.

Hopefully, you'll feel differently after I fix it. ?

I think that cover is what pulled me to read the book's review at first. And then the book seemed great!
