Top Ten Scariest Looking Book Covers


Thank you The Broke and the Bookish for this wonderful Tuesday Meme

Good day everyone! I’m so excited to be posting the Top Ten Tuesday because that means I had free time! Last week was really busy for me because it was midterms week. I am free for now 🙂

This week’s topic is the Top Ten Scariest Looking Book Covers and to be honest with you, my covers probably won’t be as scary cause, let’s face it, I can’t read scary books to save my life. So here we go:



1. Unwind by Neil Shusterman


2. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith


3. The Forest of Hands & Teeth by Carrie Ryan


4. The One by Kiera Cass: It’s not really scary but America wearing white? What does it mean?


5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth: Again, not so much as it being scary or creepy but not knowing the exact meaning behind that wave.



1. The House of Hades by Rick Riordan: It’s not so much that the image is frightening but the meaning behind it, especially with the ending of Mark of Athen. It just really worries me.


2. Angelfall by Susan Ee: Right from seeing that cover you can guess that this isn’t your typical angel novel with the “holier than thou” angels.


3. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry: I love Walking Dead and I love zombies but I do not like that close up of that eye. It’s totally creepy (see I told you I can’t do scary.)


4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: I haven’t read this but the cover isn’t helping that. I get a ghost-like vibe from it and it’s just not happening for me.


5. The Weigh of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf: Again with using children. It freaks me out because of the synopsis involving the disappearance of children. Children in danger is a big no-no for me.

  1. I loved Angelfall so much but I actually didn’t realize how creepy some of the parts were until Veronica told me xD And that wave on Allegiant… Maybe it symbolizes the entire system being completely wiped out? Like a tsunami or something? I don’t know… Overanalyzing English major over here xD

    1. Kayla!! Hey! Yes Angelfall was so creepy but it was so worth it! I can’t wait until the next one 🙂

      Haha that’s awesome. I love overanalyzing and looking for symbolism in literature.

  2. I read the Miss Peregrine’s graphic novel–it’s actually not that scary. The floating girl is one of the ‘peculiar’/gifted children.

    Totally agree with Unwind. Why would they *do* that?

  3. Well, I didn’t really find Miss Peregrine’s creepy. The pictures were interesting, but I didn’t get fully creeped out by it, and the story wasn’t creepy either. It was actually quite a disappointment. It didn’t deliver on the premise at all.

    As for the other covers, I totally agree about Ron and Ruin. There’s just something so creepy about that close up of the eye, and the way the skin around it is red.

    As Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, there’s nothing else to say except it gives you the shivers.

    1. Yeah I’ve heard that Miss Peregrine really isn’t all that creepy but I don’t know I’m a scaredy cat haha. Close up of eyes are always creepy for me lol. Have you read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? Thank you for stopping by!
