I don’t think I read many books with downright scary covers, so I chose some „creepy“ covers (sometimes probably just creepy to me, but nobody else ;-). Another Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish.
1. The Replacement by by Brenda Yovanoff
I love the creepy cover with the scary objects dangling over the old fashioned stroller. This was meant to be a pure cover purchase. Albeit, what I found in the mailbox was this:
2. (Again!) The Replacement by Brenda Yovanoff
THIS was the Cover I received: For some reason I find the guy so very creepy and disturbing. Makes me shiver.
3. Erebos by Ursula Poznanski
Those Eyes (another one on the back side) can get a bit creepy after a while of looking at them. You actually feel watched at some point.
4. The German Covers of the Flavia de Luce series.
Not all that scary, but a nice old fashioned kind of creepy with her dress…
5. Starters by Lissa Price
Somehow I really dislike the American Cover with the pencil drawing… Creepy to me.
6. Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
Creepy face, never sure whether the eyes are open or closed… Brr…
7. V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
Scary Guy Fawkes mask… That smile is so creepy!
8. Verachtung by Jussi Adler-Olsen (again a German cover)
Blood covered scissors, that is such a creepy image to me (probably because of some scary movies I saw in which the murder weapon was a big pair of scissors).
9. Miss Peregrine’s Home for peculiar children by Ransom Riggs
Not all that scary but creepy: The floating girl in the really old photograph.
Ok, I only found 9 scary/creepy books among the ones I read. Looking forward to see what you guys came up with!
