Top Ten Tuesday: Terrifying Book Covers

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over at The Broke and the Bookish.

Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

The Top Ten Terrifying Book Covers (That I Love)

Remember how I told you that I love me some horror? Well, I do, but it's a sadistic addiction, guys. Horror terrifies that living sh*t out of me, and that goes for creepy book covers. And yet, for some sick reason, I gravitate towards these books like that's for some reason going to change. It's never going to change. And I love all these covers...even though they also make me want to cry for various reasons.

Find Me by Romily Bernard, The House of Dead Maids by Clare B. Dunkle, Doctor Sleep by Stephen King, Unwind by Neal Shusterman, Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry, Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick, The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, Bzrk by Michael Grant, Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith


  1. The House of Dead Maids. *shudders*
    That cover is so creepy. I can't even scroll back up to a second peek at it.
    I love the cover for Anna Dressed in Blood and I also like the font of Dr. Sleep.
    Thanks for sharing, Melissa!

    1. Isn't it?! Blank, soulless eyes. No thanks...but it's a good book ;)

  2. EW The House of Dead Maids is especially creepy! Great picks! Here's my TTT for reading picks.

  3. Oooo yes to The Replacement! That's one of my all time favorite covers. It's definitely creepy and so, so, pretty and I kind of want to hug it until I see all the sharp objects and then I want to keep it far away from me:) Love the Stephen King cover too, I have a thing for smoke on covers, it always looks awesome.

  4. Eeek! The House of Dead Maids is SUPER SCARY!!

  5. *shudders* The House of Dead Maids, creepy!!!!! Great list.

    Check out Our TTT

  6. I'm with all the other commenters -- The House of Dead Maids is seriously shiver-inducing!!

  7. The Replacement has one of my favorite covers ever! Lockdown is also deliciously creepy, it reminds me of Doctor Who lol

    Emily @ Falling For YA

  8. Haha yes these are all fairly horrifying!

  9. We have some of the same covers! Great minds! But Lockdown is pretty amazing. I haven't seen that cover yet. Makes me want to hide under the bed. Great list!

  10. Lockdown is a good one that I haven't seen before. Unwind, Rot & Ruin and Ashes are great too and The House of Dead Maids is just TERRIFYING!

    Great list! My Top Ten

  11. Awesome! I also have Anna, Unwind, and The Replacement on my list. The House of Dead Maids is super creepy--never heard of that one before. Great list!

  12. great covers, some of these almost made my list :)

  13. Yay! More Anna!! The House of Dead Maids really freaks me out! Forgot about that one! The Replacement was also a really creepy one, although I never read those two, so perhaps that is why I forgot about their creepy covers!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  14. I keep meaning to read The Replacement, but that cover scares me every time... Wonderful list, Melissa! :D

  15. House of Dead Maids is freaking me out...I nearly picked it for my list but didn't want it on my homepage for a few days!! They're all really creepy, especially Unwind and Doctor Sleep...eek!

  16. the one i would be least likely to read because of the creepy cover is.... LOCKDOWN!

  17. Excellent List. House of Dead Maids!!! Her eyes! Where are they?!

  18. Oh god the house of dead maids is uber scary. I don't like how the replacement has those knives hanging down!

    Great list, Melissa! <33

  19. Great picks! Lockdown looks SO scary. Reminds me of the last (before Halloween, haven't watched that one yet) episode of Pretty Little Liars,haha.

  20. Lots of creepy ones! I think Lockdown and House of Dead Maids are the creepiest looking ones on your list.
