Top Ten Scariest Book Covers
hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I’m a huge horror fan, when it comes to books and movies and TV shows, so I am really looking forward to Halloween this year! It’s a great excuse to eat a bunch of chocolate and hide under the cover with your laptop. This week, I’m sharing my top ten scary book covers. These are in no particular order, and the level of scary varies. You might not even be creeped out by them. Just know that I hate dolls, children, clowns, and eye operations.
The Vivisector is by far the creepiest cover, yuuuuck!
EW those ZomB books are super creepo! I have never heard of House of Dead Maids until today as 3 people have had it on their list already and THOSE DEAD EYES. MAKE IT STOP. Hmm I don’t know which Peregrine’s cover freaks me out more — either way DEAD KIDS GO AWAY.

I also hate dolls, children, clowns and eye operations, so congratulations! Your list has me freaked the f*ck out. Seriously, scariest TTT so far. I need to go lock myself in the brightly lit office supplies storeroom with all the happy, non-homicidal, rainbow post-its so I can calm down.
Oh man. IT!!!!! Even though that clown isn’t crazy scary looking, he’s definitely incredibly creepy and haunting. I feel like I need to look over my shoulder just to make sure he’s not standing there. *bites nails* And any cover with dolls will always freak me out. I can’t deal with dolls at all, I’m convinced they’re watching me with their dead doll eyes and that’s terrifying:) Fantastic choices Amber!

Ah! I had to go past that last one fast. I hate eye stuff. ugh. I don’t think Unhinged is creepy but I’ve seen that a lot of people do. I think IT is SO creepy! My blog actually posted that cover redone in Lego. Still scary. I just dont’ think clowns can ever NOT be creepy. Does any child actually like them? I have yet to meet a single person that thinks clowns are amusing.

Hollow City and Unsouled….. *backs into a corner* *curls up in fetal position* *hides under a blanket*
Unsouled, It, The Vivisector…definitely scary and creepy. Ugh. Clowns are just creepy in general. Great picks! ~Pam
I AM SCARRED FOR LIFE. I thought the covers I found were disturbing, but you’ve totally got me beat. That zombie baby one is just…*shudders.* The House of Dead Maids might be one of the scariest covers I have ever seen.
