Top Ten Creepiest Book Covers

Tumblr on We Heart It.

                  Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and The Bookish.

Halloween, I love it. I adore all things scary. Certain things freak me out and I love that feeling of fear in my stomach. So, along with scary movies I love scary books. This weeks Top Ten Tuesday is what are the ten book covers that freak us out.
These are in no particular order.

The Replacement

I still haven't read this book yet, but the cover is still creepy. 
It's very reminiscent of a few of my favorite horror movies all rolled into one. 
The unease that the surgical instruments above a baby carriage leaves me with is great.


Cujo by Stephen King
Those teeth *shivers*


I tried reading this one a while ago and couldn't get into it...but I really want to like it because that cover creeps me out. Bleeding eyes. Eek.

I love the old photographs used for the covers. 
Both of these are creepy and I like 'em!

La metamorfosis
The MetamorphosisThe Metamorphosis

Seriously, you guys...The Metamorphosis has some of the weirdest and creepiest covers...ever.

The Raft

This isn't in your face creepy or scary. But just look at it and think about it for a minute. The title is THE RAFT...and she's obviously in the ocean...alone. That's scary, alright?


Love love love this cover sooo much. The idea of something written by Stephen King happening at an amusement park is just too perfect. No joke. I think more scary stories should take place in carnivals, circus', and amusement parks. They just seem like the best setting. 
She looks terrified, it's dark, that tagline...and Stephen Kings name is on know it's creepy already.

I had about 8 other covers I could have put here, but these are my favorite so I thought I'd be a minimalist this week.
So tell me fellow book lovers, what are your favorite creepy and scary book covers?
