Tuesday, October 29, 2013



This week's Top Ten from The Broke and the Bookish asks for Ten of the Scariest Book Covers. I made my list and started finding images for the covers and I realized I apparently think little girls are super creepy. 

1) Dracula
2) The Picture of Dorian Gray



3) The Passage
4) We Have Always Lived in the Castle
5) The Bad Seed  



6) Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
7) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
8) Autumn People
9) H.P. Lovecraft books
10) Stephen King books

I honestly cannot think of a cover that I've found really scary. I'll have to noodle that one around in my brain today. BTW, my son and I JUST watched "Bad Seed" a couple of nights ago! Love it!

The We Have Always Lived in the Castle cover is very disturbing indeed. Great list.

The Bad Seed is so creepy! That little girl haunts my nightmares sometimes.

I LOVE We Have Always Lived in the Castle!! I have The Passage in my car to return unread to the library. Too many things to read:(

Sandy - Ahh! That is one of the scariest movies ever. She's so calm.

Ciska van der Lans - Isn't that creepy!

Tiffany - Seriously, I saw that when I was pretty young and she still scares me to death.

Andi - Isn't it funny! (and terrifying)

Amy - I didn't love The Passage. You're not missing much.
