Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

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

This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers. The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined list, choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.

This weeks theme

 “Trick or treat – A Halloween inspired cover

Last weeks theme was about a horror novel. I chose Frankenstein. This weeks theme is a Halloween inspired cover. I think they are pretty similar. At any rate, I am having a hard time choosing for this but I have decided on a cover of a book I haven’t read but would like to. I have only seen the movie.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Goodreads Summary:

Meet Jack Skellington. He’s in charge of making Halloweenland the coolest creepy place around. But when Jack suddenly grows bored with tricks and treats, he goes searching for new ways to celebrate…and he finds them in Christmas Town! Christmas, Jack decides, is just what Halloweenland — and the world — needs! He sets out to take over the role of Santa. But can anything good come of a tall and lanky skeleton dressed up as everyone’s favorite jolly old elf?

The Nightmare Before Christmas is the first book that Tim Burton has written and illustrated.

    I didn’t know this was a book! My daughter loves the movie. We always watch it a million times (at least it feels like it) from now until Christmas. Luckily I do enjoy it.
