Top Ten Tuesday: Creepy Book Covers

This is a weekly feature hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish!

This week's top ten is scary book covers, but I'm going to just do Halloween-y, creepy, something that looks October-y book covers. And I have not read them all. So I need people to tell me if they're good (that's you guys!)!

1. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs — Anything with a creepy child, especially a creepy girl, is going to scare the bejeezus out of me. Which is why I haven't read this yet. I've heard it's really great, so I'll just have to stake out some daytime period I can read this because no way in hell am I reading it at night.

2. Amber House by Kelly Moore — This is one I got in the mail over the summer, and the cover is STUNNING. The title barely appears, and is embossed with some sort of clear gloss, so you can only see it in the right light. It's like it appears and disappears. And there are specks of it, too in the bushes, so everything kind of shimmers.

3. Possess by Gretchen McNeil — I got this book like, a year ago to review, but honestly, the cover terrifies me, so I'm a baby and keep avoiding it. Maybe I'll tackle it soon, though.

4. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff — I've actually reviewed this one. The cover? A baby carriage with scissors and knives and sharp objects hanging over it. And the book is shimmery, which gives this creepy moonlight effect. And the book is just as creepy as the cover.

5. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder — This one isn't overtly creepy, but the story seems to be, and my copy is SIGNED! which is awesome, but she's put this creepy message inside that has to do with the book (can't remember what it is, and I haven't got it with me now), and it sends chills up my spine every time I look at it.

6. Possessions by Nancy Holder — OMG JUST LOOK AT HOW TERRIFYING THIS IS.

7. Firespell by Chloe Neill — This is also one I've had for a while and never picked up, but it looks really good. It's a creepy boarding school tale.

8. The Named by Marianne Curley — I've never read this series, but they look really good, and I think I actually checked them out of the library once, but never got around to them. Dark forest and weird logo mark? I'm there.

9. Swoon by Nina Malkin — Again, had this one for a while. I'm not sure why I've never picked it up, but my best friend borrowed it and loved it, so maybe this will be a thing I give a go soon.

What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Have you read any of these? Let me know and link up to your lists!
