Top Ten Scariest Looking Book Covers

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Scariest Looking Book Covers.

It's Halloween--well close enough--my peeps!!! I just love this holiday. Maybe it's the trees changing colors and leaves falling. Maybe it's the cooler weather. It's definitely not the college football. But whatever the reason, I love this season. And so with the last week of October rapidly coming to a close, let's take a look at the scariest looking book covers that I could find.

    1) The Woman in Black by Susan Hill - Tell me that cover isn't a little be freaky.
    2) This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers - I love this cover. From the color to her hair and the position of her body to the blood sprinkled in the top left corner. Perfect cover for this book.
    3) Ten by Gretchn McNeil - This one is just the idea of what scary things might take place on a deserted island. Especially with a serial killer running around.
    4) Deadlocked by AR Wise - Man, does that Deadlocked cover not have an impact? It's the coloring, the expression...impactful.
    5) It by Stephen King - How many people aren't scared of clowns after this book? I haven't read it myself, but I know the gist of it.
    6) Cujo by Stephen King - I'm not 100% sure what's going on with this cover, but it gives enough of a scary impression for me to steer clear.
    7) Insomnia by JR Johansson - Again, I don't know 100% what's going on with this cover, but it freaks me out a little.
    8) Before I Go to Sleep by SJ Watson - Is that a mirror? It almost looks like a creepy stalker person staring into a fogged up window somewhere. Gives me the hee-bee-jee-beez.
    9) Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu - Chick on the cover looks like the perfect victim of a possession. Am I right or what?
    10) Wake the Wicked by Christian Baloga - And yeah...I have no words for this one.

What about it? What are the scariest book covers for you? Let me know!
