This time of year I crave a spooky read, but ultimately, I end up freaked out. Scary reads really aren't for me, but that doesn't stop me each year from trying them out. Even though this genre isn't my forte, I have put together my top ten scariest book covers of all time in honor of Halloween. Let me know what you think!
1. Misery by Stephen King - I remember seeing this older cover in a bookstore and I was thinking, "Wha the whaaa?" It kind of makes me laugh, but at the same time it's super creepy, right?
2. The Shining - I couldn't even make it through this movie and this cover freaks me out just as much. In fact, Stephen King always freaks me out. Well played, Stephen King. Well played.
3. Night of the Living Dummy by R.L. Stine - Does anyone remember the Goosebump books from their childhood? They freaked me out as a kid, especially this one.
4. Unwind by Neal Shusterman - This cover is just straight up creepy.
5. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz - Ok, does anyone remember this book? The cover isn't that scary, but this book scared the sh*t out of me as a kid and the drawings inside were super spooky.
6. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith - There's something about zombies that makes my blood run cold.
7. Possessions by Nancy Holder - The water, the creepy girl....I'm pretty sure there's no way I'd ever read this book.
8. The Replacement by Brenna Yavanoff- Ok, this book wins the scariest and downright creepiest cover. There are no words.
9. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake- I know many people love this book and I should probably read it before it is made into a movie, but I am just.not.sure.
10. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs - Sometimes old photos can be really creepy and this cover captures that whole vibe really well. It's probably my #2 scariest cover. I can't even....
Have you read any of these books? Which book covers do you think are the scariest? This
