It’s Tuesday! And it’s almost Halloween! Which means it’s time for the Halloween-themed topic for Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and The Bookish). This is my FOURTH YEAR participating in this Top Ten Tuesday topic. That is insane. Do you know how hard it is to avoid repeats?
Luckily, the topic this year is a little different – Top Ten Scariest Looking Book Covers. But unfortunately, I’m not going to have anywhere near 10 books for this list. Also, I am seriously short on time right now. So let’s get to the few I do have.
1. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – Thank you, Mr. Riggs, for coming out with a novel full of super bizarre and unsettling pictures just like the one on the cover.
2. Night of the Living Dummies by R.L. Stine – You guys know I have a huge fear of small creatures/people, right? Killer dolls, dummies, gnomes, midgets, children, etc. I have a feeling that stems from reading these creepy ass books as a child. Cover still gives me the shivers.
3. Scary Stories books by Alvin Schwartz – Dude, screw these books. Way too scary. And illustrator Stephen Gammell did way too good of a job with the creepy drawings.
AND THAT’S IT. I know, I suck. I’m positive there have been times when I’ve seen creepy or scary covers in bookstores and walked away… but I can’t remember any. Well then. What’s on your lists? Show me (tell me?) some scary covers!
