In honor of the Halloween season, today's top ten list is all about scary-looking book covers. To be honest, I don't really get scared easily, but there are some covers that give off a creepy vibe, even if they don't exactly full-on "scare" me. Here are the most notable ones:
I loved the Goosebumps series as a kid, mainly because I enjoyed creeping myself out. The covers were fun also, but there were a few that stuck in my mind because they really freaked me out. I've decided to include them in this post because even as an adult I still find them creepy. That dummy will always scare the crap outta me.
The above books both feature really creepy looking girls standing by themselves in the middle of a wooded area - but one is floating and the other has no eyes! I think the second book is about ghosts, but thanks to Supernatural, when I see black eyes I automatically think demon.
The jack-in-the-box puppet on the Toybox cover is creepy, but the one on the Shadows of the Redwood cover looks demonic, and scary as sh*t!
I don't know what the thing on A Monster Calls is supposed to be, as I have yet to read it, but I would be terrified if it were creeping up on my house like that....As for the Sunshine cover, I just find it eerie that the girl is chained to the wall by her ankle, and that her name is written on the cover in a font that looks a bit like blood. It gives of a spooky vibe, though the story itself isn't really scary.
What do you guys think?
If you know of any other scary book covers, let me know in the comments!
