Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten List and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.

Any of my friends will tell you, I am not a fan of scary things. I watched The Ring at a sleepover when I was 13 and think it scared me for life! My friends tricked me into seeing one of the Paranormal Activity films at the cinema recently. I spent the whole film with one hand over my eyes and the other shoveling popcorn into my mouth!
.
In high school I read a couple of the Point Horror books by R.L.Stine, but since then have never read anything at all scary. I don’t know, maybe one day I will give horror another go, but for now I’m quite happy with my fantasy and YA books!

547094 I Am Legend – Richard Matheson
No explanation needed really, this cover is CREEPY!
.
3069780Annabelle – Ruby Jean Jensen
Dolls are freaky, they just stare at you! So a doll being hung by the neck is like freaky times a million! Nothing about this cover makes me want to read this book!
.
9378297Anna Dressed in Blood – Kendare Blake
This one is creepy but in a good way, I really like the way it has been done. The red really stands out against the black and white. I still wouldn’t read it, but looks good!
.
11408650The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer – Michelle Hodkin
I slightly claustrophobic, and totally freak out if someone restrains me and won’t let go. The girl in this cover doesn’t really look like she is getting hugged, so the thought of being restrained like that kinda freaks me out.

13597728Asylum – Madeleine Roux
There is something incredibly scary about people with missing faces or blurred out faces. Gives me the shivers.
.
17078025The Torturers Daughter -Zoe Cannon
An empty chair and a lonely light bulb. Sometimes its the simple things that can be the scariest!
.
18621200Say Her Name – James Dawson
Nothing good ever happens in bathrooms in scary books or films (Psycho anyone?)
.
Hair-Side-Flesh-SideHair Side, Flesh Side – Helen Marshall
This one is freaky, gives me the shudders. I’m not normally bothered by gorey stuff, but this one is kinda frightening.

InsomniaInsomnia – J.R.Johansson
Eyes freak me out and this cover makes it look like there are needles going into the eye. Creepy!
.
.

Miss Peregrines Home...Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs
Why horror stories like to take the cutest kids and turn them into some creepy psycho thing is beyond me, but I find them plain scary.
