Seeing Double: Lookalike Book Covers

Happy Wednesday! Isn’t it funny how once in a while you will see a book, and think just from a quick glance at the cover that you know what it is, but then when you actually read the title or synopsis you realize it is a different book entirely? (Or is that just me, as I walk through the library?) Sometimes I see a book and swear I have seen the exact cover before with a different title! I’ve been noticing this a lot over the past few months, so I decided to make a post featuring a few of them. I’m not poking fun at the authors or thinking anything negative about any of the books – I just think it’s interesting to see so many similarities!

I wrote a similar post back in January (Twinning Book Cover Challenge), and I have found even more “twin” covers since then. I limited myself to five sets of covers this time.

Lookalike Book Covers

Things We Didn’t Say by Amy Lynne Green (2020)
The Edge of Belonging by Amanda Cox (2020)

Have you read any of these books, or come across any similar book covers recently?

Tomorrow I’ll be back with the second installment of Thursday Encouragement, and then on Friday it’s time to wrap up the month!

Until the next chapter,

  1. Over the past few years, I’ve been noticing the same thing. There are a lot of covers that seem to use the same background or similar elements. One year, there was an image of a lady I kept seeing on all sorts of books. It was a little confusing at times, but they definitely caught my attention!
