Top Ten Tuesday: Scariest Looking Book Covers

2013, Top Ten Tuesday

I knew I wouldn’t end up having many, or any, “scary” covers in my collection, so I decided to take to Goodreads. I found some I could share with y’all!! Let’s check them out!



These two are more haunting than scary. I think they’re actually rather striking and, yes, even beautiful. And! I own them! :D



What I find scary about these two is the old, abandoned feel of the building and desk. I could never walk into a building like that. Heck no!



I think the fact we can’t see the faces makes it scary. Or at least it leads me to believe the story is scary.



Just look at those faces!! And those teeth!! eeeep!



Dude…R.L. Stine’s covers. ‘Nough said.

    I loooove the cover of This is Not a Test. It’s so delicately creepy and haunting, and the mixed up angles add to that scary-factor. I also can’t get enough of the Cryer’s Cross cover either – and after reading the book I’m definitely a total wimp when it comes to school settings and those awful, creepy little students’ desks.

    The 30 Days of Night covers are so scary but I love them. They’ve got this hold over me that I just like to pull out my copies and look through them. Especially this time of year. I’m totally with you on the R.L. Stine covers.

    Creepy covers! I have read Graveminder, though,and I loved it. No creepy barns involved.

    I totally forgot about Asylum and Goosebumps series. Almost included Ryan’s books as well.

    I remember being annoyed that the Goosebump books were that scary – it smacked of false advertising. It was the same with the Nightmare Hall series. #3 & #4 are really evocative though and I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to dive in and read the books.

    Goosebumps and Asylum…very creepy. Great list!
