Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Ominoius/Scary Book Covers

It's time to participate in The Broke and the Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday!

This weeks theme:  Top Ten Scariest Looking Book Covers

They say don't judge a book by it's cover, but we all do.  How can you not?  Images evoke emotions. 

Books I Have Read: 
1. The Dinner: I picked this book up solely because of the cover. 


2. Red Rain: I was so excited for this one and the cover was amazing.  But it was more than disappointing.


3. The Black Dahlia: The story sounded so intriguing and the cover is so..so..I can't describe it.  Even then, the book was disappointing.


4. The Devil in the White City: This book is just the Chicago World's Fair location, but with a touch of evil.

5. Dracula: What a face!




Books I Want to Read:

6. I Am The Cheese

7. I Hunt Killers

8. The Replacement

9. Haunted

10. Hush, Hush

  1. Have you read The Replacement? That's the kind of cover that would pull me in actually. :) Great list.

    1. The actual case totally fascinates me to no end. I really wish the book had focused on that and not the two bumbling cops.

    2. Oh yeah I could see how that'd suck. I think James Ellroy can be a little hit and miss with his writing.

    1. Oh my goodness....I have never noticed that before. That is totally Christopher Lee! Thank you! This makes me want to watch him be Dracula again.

  5. I've always loved the cover of The Replacements! I was so sad when I got the rubbish UK cover, because the US one is fantastic.

    1. The cover with the creepy dude just standing there? yeah, this one is way better!

  6. That Dracula cover is pretty intense - the one I have has a guy that looks like Bella Lugosi (might actually be him for all I know) and isn't that scary. Here's my TTT

  8. Dracula is both creepy and scary at the same time. It is a classic that is always read and that will forever scare people. Great selection :)

  12. Chuck! I love Chuck's writing. My professor recommended him on the sly by telling me to never read his books and that he would not recommend them to anyone, ever. LOL! I am now in Love. -- Great list!

    1. I lived in Portland for six years and that city is OBSESSED with him (mostly because he lives there and always does appearances but super weird, like does signings but won't sign your book unless you come in a wedding dress, male and female). Its got some very unique writing. Love it!
