11 book covers that will make you cringe and hug your pretties

We love book covers here at MP!. In fact, you could even say that we’re obsessed by them. So it’s no surprise that one of our favourite things to do is track down the most horrifying covers out there and laugh until we pee.

Be prepared. There are some gems ahead.

We can’t decide if the Word Art font is worse than the poor photoshopped woman…


*backs away slowly* We don’t even want to look at this one for too long…


We’re just not even really sure where to start with this one. Weirdly blurred photoshopping, strange title, dodgy font – it’s a beaut


Eh, not bad, right? Look closer. Yep, there you go. #sorrynotsorry



It’s available now, you know? ‘Cos it says that RIGHT ON THE COVER. Plus, the baby looks like an alien


That is one huge ass wolf – they should probably be running away rather than pouting and posing


Yeah, this is actually the front cover. So much text, so much horror


We’re all for cute cat pics, but this cover is on a whole other level


There is just so much going on here that we’re gonna need a few minutes to digest it, but that font, man


We’re not laughing, you’re laughing


Is it us or is she a really weird, elongated alien shape?


Well, it’s definitely bright and impossible not to notice


Laughing at someone’s artistic pursuits is mean, very mean. Someone make us stop laughing, please
