TOP TEN TUESDAY you beautiful blogging motivational tag 😄 This is a feature created and run by The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks topic is: Cover Theme Freebie:
So I being the person who screams over covers every second of my life am going to do something different and scream in terror, some of these books are my fave horrors and others are ones that are just so amazingly freaky I can’t wait to pick them up, lets do this:
fun fact I promise I am lovely and enjoy cute fluffy books too it’s just sometimes some stabbing is necessary… you know for a balanced reading diet…
This is one of my first Horror books I ever read and I love it, seriously Matilda if she was pushed to the brink and went on a killing spree… How could I not love it, thanks for the recommendation Mum 😄 I couldn’t choose just the one edition, I love the red original cover but the blood and model on the left cover just looks amazing to me.
The Haunting of Hill House By Shirley Jackson
The creepy house, the eye poking out from the middle, the FONT and stark black on mustard yellow. This book looks sinister and makes me think of ghosts and the classic Victorian horror house settings with the house coming alive to trap and kill the characters.
This is still on my TBR but man it looks hauntingly good.
Pet Semetery by Stephen King
Easily my favourite book by King. Pet Semetery may look cute (at least the one on the left) but it scared the absolute shit out of me. The creepy cat works perfectly with the story (I’m already suspecting I should rename this post to fangirling over King’s covers)
Creepy foggy woods, anyone up for a stroll? Wood settings always get me, maybe it’s because of my love/freight at The Blair Witch Project but being in the woods and having a maniac after your frightens me more than being in a haunted house, there’s no one around and you’re in a setting that allows for a perfect murder scene.
This is still on my TBR but Culling anyone? We all know what that means and I don’t think it’s talking about trees.
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all heard if not watched this movie, The antichrist? 666? Evil Nannies?
This cover just gets me, creepy kids always freak me out as well as kids that aren’t really children *shudders*
You By Caroline Kepnes
One of my ALL time favourite thriller/horror’s feature a stalker serial killer that loves to read, what that my book boyfriend killed a few people bUT HE OWNS A BOOK STORE SO SCORE 1 FOR ME :’D This has all the gore and murder I want from a thriller/horror… Look I swear I’m not weird it’s just I prefer my horror’s a bit R rated… The simplicity and blood on the covers just grabs me. I have Hidden Bodies FINALLY and can’t wait to read more about Joe.
Asylum by Madeline Roux
The Mirror? The creepy grey scale, the girl with a crossed out face (crossed out faces ALWAYS terrify me but in a good way ya know?)
3 boys exploring a creepy summer home? Yeah I already know at least 2 of them are going to be violently murdered. So um yes I would like to read this book because creepy and high potential of murder?
Unwind by Neil Shusterman
This book has so many good reviews and actually deals with a dystopian reality of reproduction rights and parents being force to keep all kids until the age of 13, then they can decide to have their child “unwound” where all their organs are given to other donors so their life kinda keeps going? at least in others bodies. The main character was born to be unwound and must escape to be able to love his own life.
I need it, I need it right now. How creepy and terrifying oh and the cover works so well with the synopsis alone I imagine it fits the book perfectly
So if you’re still here I PROMISE I AM NOT A MURDER… I just enjoy characters dying? Look I’m as weirded out by my as you are lets just leave it at that 😄
