Shelf Candy Saturday is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Maria at A Night's Dream of Books where each Saturday bloggers defy the saying "never judge a book by its cover" and showcase one that really catches their eye. Covers play a huge role in the books I choose so it's great to have the opportunity to showcase the pretties :)
My shelf candy for this week is the Hallowe'en Part by Agatha Christie.
At a Hallowe'en party, Hercule Poirot aids mystery writer Ariadne Oliver in an investigation into the murder of a young girl-who may have witnessed a murder herself. But unmasking the killer proves more daunting than bobbing for apples.
Halloween is my favourite holiday and I'm already getting in the spirit so I had to pick an appropriately seasonal cover. I adore the signature editions of Agatha Christie's novels as I think the signature adds a quirkiness to the books (and the covers generally rock) but this was the first I actually brought.
It really sets the scene for a Halloween story. I love how the cover is done in shades of orange and black and the simplicity of only having the clouds, moon, creepy tree and pumpkin manages to grab your attention but without giving anything away. Looking at the cover you know there will be something creepy, at night and at Halloween but it's up to the viewer to decide what.
So what's your shelf candy this week?
