Top Ten Tuesday: Creepy Book Covers

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

In coming up with a list of book covers that send a shiver up my spine, it turns out that, understandably, this list of creepy book covers also offers some great creepy reads, perfect for Halloween.


1. Asylum by Madeleine Roux

2. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

3. The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney: The front cover might not be very shiver-worthy, but the back cover has a very creepy hand clawing as a wooden floor… Actually this whole series has pretty creepy covers.
