Ironically enough, the most disturbing book that I have ever read where spiders feature very prominently was a non-fiction book by Gordon Grice. The book came out quite a few years ago and contain the kind of stuff that would probably cause it to get blacklisted by PETA if it was released in this day and age. The title of the book is The Red Hourglass: Lives of the Predators and while it does include chapters on rattlesnakes and mantids, but the scariest ones are about black widows, brown recluses and tarantulas. If you ever doubted that a nature book could give you nightmares, then read The Red Hourglass. A lot of the stuff in this book is very disturbing as the author had no qualms pitting spiders against each other and writing in great detail about the ensuing carnage. Before I read this book I was cautious of spiders, but not exactly terrified. After reading it I shivered whenever I saw anything with eight legs, so be warned.
The Mars Books by Kim Stanley Robinson - Interest in the red planet appears to have faded somewhat in recent years, but with Elon Musk and his SpaceX endeavors, now might be a good time to remind people of our planetary neighbor. The Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson deals with people settling and colonizing mars after an overpopulated Earth prompts them to leave. What makes the books so interesting and what could translate to a great show, is how it follows the personal viewpoints of a number of characters. Some elements of the books will obviously have to be changed somewhat because they were written in the nineties and our scientific knowledge have improved since then, but overall it could make for a gripping series if handled properly.
Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson - Now this one is a bit of a pipe-dream due to the sheer epic scope of the books, but a part of me can't help but wish to see how the spectacle would look on-screen. There are ten volumes in the series, which means more than enough ideas for a couple of seasons of a television show. Unfortunately, I doubt if even HBO has the budget to do justice to these books. The amount of dragons and dinosaurs and nonhuman races alone would blow up the special effects budget of any network. As much as I would like to see this turn into a television show I think for now it will have to remain in the imagination of fans.
I have a feeling that in a hundred years (or even less) readers will look back at answers to questions such as this and wonder how anyone could ever have felt unsettled by stories that are so tame in comparison to what is available in their time. Just compare the sex and violence in recent books to the kind of stuff that shocked the public a hundred years ago to see what I mean. There's no way that 50 Shades of Gray would have been an international bestseller back then! But I digress, to answer your question, here is my list of unsettling books (in no particular order.)

-Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie = Don't read this if you are a parent.
-Horns: A Novel by Joe Hill = Forget the motion picture, the book is the real deal and written by Stephen King's son.
-Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk = Is throwing up the same as feel unsettled? If so, this book definitely unsettled me.
