Friday Face Off: Scary

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.”

This weeks theme:  A scary cover

My Choice: Brave New World

I know these covers are more creepy than scary, but I didn’t know what other book to pick.

There are a lot of covers for Brave New World, so I tried to include only the scary ones.

Least Favorites:




Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!



  1. There are some really good covers for this one and some of them scary indeed. Your least favourites I completely agree with. I love your favourite too – although that first cover gives me the shivers.

  2. wow I gotta read Brave New World! Look at those covers! Love all of them I’ll have to agree with you, though. That’s the best cover! Brit anything that has a steampunk vibe, I adore 🙂 I love the egg shells one too!

    1. Haha Brave New World is not a book I normally recommend to people. I didn’t hate it when I had to read it for High School, but I didn’t love it either. I don’t remember there being anything in the book that was steampunk, tho I read it before Steampunk really took off. And I liked the egg shells cover too!
