Book Cover Lookalikes: At All Angles

Welcome to our new super-visual blog series of cover lookalikes, hosted by Chloe!

While shelving at the library, we always find ourselves going “huh, I feel like I’ve seen that before” and more often than not we have, at least in some form. Our series brings a whole bunch of books with similar covers based on a theme together into one megapost per week (and we have got enough themes to keep us going for several months, just fyi). Our first theme is girls that are upside down, sideways, or kind of dead looking. Clicking the cover will take you through to the book record so you can reserve it, if you wish!

Live Through This book coverThe Goddess Inheritance book coverBetrayal book coverBetween the Lines book coverBy Any Other Name book coverWhen the Sea is Rising Red book coverRevived book coverOut of Reach book coverA Girl Named Digit book coverThe Dead and Buried book coverKiss of Death book coverHaunting Violet book cover

Cover lookalikes

Every so often we see these and go “hang on, haven’t I seen that before?” and sometimes you have indeed seen it before! Occasionally the same stock photo gets used on different book covers, and it’s a bit surreal seeing them next to one another. Such as: After the Moment & 172 Hours on the Moon (which we spotted in 2012).

The ones we found recently just use remarkably similar typographic styles and techniques without using the same stock image. We found:

The Darkest Part of the Forest, Holly Black (we featured this in last week’s newly ordered books post!)

Between the spark and the burn, April Genevieve Tucholke
“Seventeen-year-old Violet is looking for the boy she fell in love with last summer, the charismatic liar River West Redding, but as she scours the country for him, she begins to wonder who she’s really chasing– and who she really loves” (Publisher description)

Shades of Earth, Beth Revis (Across the universe #3)
“Leaving the walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind, Amy and Elder are ready to build a home on Centauri-Earth. But they must race to discover who–or what–else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together.” (Library catalogue)

Have you spotted any cover cousins recently?
