Book Covers That Give Me The Creeps! Top 5 Saturday

Ok! So I might have to cheat this week… just a little bit. I am THE BIGGEST wimp. Literally, I don’t watch scary films or read books that I know might even remotely freak me out, so this weeks scheduled ‘scariest book covers’ would have consisted me and google search. Instead I’ve decided to change it up just a little and choose the creepiest covers of books that I own/on my TBR. Whats the creepiest/scariest cover of a book you have read? Let me know in the comments.


  • Share your top 5 books of the current topic– these can be books that you want to read, have read and loved, have read and hated, you can do it any way you want.

This idea was originally created by Mandy @Devouring Books and you should definitely go and give her blog some love!

We need to talk about Kevin – Lionel Shriver

I don’t do creepy, and I especially don’t do creepy kids! *Shivers* kids have a way of well and truly freaking me out, and the kid in this book is just wrong. I really enjoyed the book and the look into the mind of a truly disturbed child. I’m just saying that it made me look at my cousin in a whole different light!

Jaws – Peter Benchley

I love this film! And the cover gets the terror and anticipation the film makes you feel completely. Maybe not creepy but my heart certainly skips a beat every time I see that image.

The Extinction Trials – S.M. Wilson

Whats behind the ferns? Why can we only see a bit of her face and what’s wrong with her eyes? This cover gave me major creeps when I first saw it, but I was intrigued enough by the premise to move past it.

Red Sister – Mark Lawrence

I mean what is she drenched in? Looking at the synopsis, probably blood! This is a book I have been meaning to pick up for ages… The cover definitely gives me the creeps though.

So that’s my top creepiest book covers. I couldn’t find 5 because as stated I am a wimp and have literally no scary books on my shelves/TBR. Do you agree with my choices? Do you think I’m the biggest wimp ever 😂? Let me know in the comments.
