10 Fall and Halloween Inspired Book Covers

— Kate on

The leaves are changing, the air is cooling, and everything is vaguely pumpkin-flavored. We'd like to celebrate the start of autumn by sharing some of our favorite fall-related books, complete with illustrated covers and memorable quotes.

The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

Was he an animal, that music would so move him?

The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe

My original soul seemed, at once, to take its flight from my body; and a more than fiendish malevolence, gin-nurtured, thrilled every fibre of my frame.

Hamlet by William Shakespeare

There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.

The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

There are things in that paper that nobody knows but me, or ever will.

The Garden Party by Katherine Mansfield

And it seemed to her that kisses, voices, tinkling spoons, laughter, the smell of crushed grass were somehow inside her. She had no room for anything else.

Miss Brill by Katherine Mansfield

And when she breathed, something light and sad—no, not sad, exactly—something gentle seemed to move in her bosom.

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.

The Adventure of the Speckled Band by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Ah, me! it's a wicked world, and when a clever man turns his brains to crime it is the worst of all.

The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe

Leave my loneliness unbroken!
