Ok, so the first thing I thought about when I saw this week's theme was Dexter, but in the end I decided not to put any of those covers because I couldn't decide which to choose :)

So, My Favorite 5 Bloody Book Covers are:

1) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Yeah, I'm talking about this limited adult edition from Subterranean Press - I wish I owned it (I have the blue one which is also great) but this one is amazing & so perfect for the story, so one of my all-time favourite covers!
2) Hater by David Moody

I love covers with blood spatter & bloody writing :) I blame it on Dexter ;)
3) Anna Dressed in Blood & Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
I absolutely love both of these covers, so I had to add them both as one ;) Nekro is an amazing artist!

4) Alien in the Family by Gini Koch

Maybe you won't notice the blood at first, but I absolutely love this cover because of it, (actually I love all the covers in the series - Daniel dos Santos is also one amazing artist) I think that the blood splatter on Kitty's dress is amazing detail & only adds to the bad-ass look of the cover! 
5) Allison Hewitt is Trapped by Madeleine Roux

As you can see from my list, I'm not a fan of the bloody vampire covers, but I love covers with bloody writing :)


  1. I like the bloody writing too! While I love vampires the whole bloody neck bite and blood dripping from their fangs is kind of overdone. I included the Hater cover too. I really like it. The blood writing makes everything more creepy.

  2. Oh and yeah I've read both Savor and Indulge by Megan Duncan. They are pretty good. I have reviews on them in my review archive if your interested.

  3. Thanks Jen, I'll check them out :)

  4. The Graveyard Book cover is really great! Wow I love it!
