Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic: Top 10 Scariest Looking Book Covers. I actually don't know all that many scary covers. And usually books that have scary covers tend to contain not-so-scary stories (sadly). But I've managed to find 10 and I hope you enjoy my picks! Especially the last one.
I've got a thing about creepy staring eyes - especially disembodied staring eyes. They freak me out! Always have and always will.
I thought this was one of the lamest books on Earth, but the cover is pretty spooky. Hence why I picked it up in the first place.
I both like and dislike this cover. It's kind of eerily creepy and just . . . disconcerting. Or so I find it. Really liked the book, though.
Grasping hands shooting out of basement-like places . . . Another childhood fear that's I've never quite gotten over. Too bad the book isn't as spooky as the cover.
There's a human skull in the snow in a foggy woods . . . Enough said.
Deliciously spooky - and the reason I picked the book up in the first place. I only wish the book had been just as creepy. Oh, it had so much potential! But it was so slow! I desperately wanted to like this book! I guess I'll just like the cover instead.
A creepy mask dotted with blood . . . A corpse-page hand streaked with blood . . . Spooky, right? Well, I thought so, and yet again the story within did not match the cover.
Old black-and-white photographs are spooky. I love them, but they're spooky. This is one of the spookier covers I've seen. The story itself is pretty spooky as well - at first. But not as much once the mystery disappears.
See the freaky white face in the background with the empty eye sockets and screaming mouth? Yeah . . . I had to put my pillow over this book so I didn't wake up staring at it.
Out of all the book covers, though, there isn't a single one that is spookier to me than the cover of Twilight. Not one ghost or skeleton or tomb stone will make me shudder and turn away - or shriek in horror - as loudly as Twilight. It's my garlic (haha). Red apples are ruined for ever!!!!!
