Top 10 Scariest Looking Book Covers

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!


  1. Oh my god, it's 1am here and I just had to click on your post...and the first photo I saw was that of The House of Dead Maids. Gaaah nightmares!

  2. The House of Dead Maids will stay with my forever. I am so terrified by it it's not even funny.

    Great list!!

  3. Dude, I practically jumped out of my chair when I saw The House of Dead Maids! That's probably the creepiest cover I've ever seen.
