Similar covers again...

I’m starting to feel like this is becoming an obsession, since I posted about similar covers a couple of days ago, but I also know that if I don’t get this post out fast, Alea at Pop Culture Junkie might beat me to it (check out her lookalike posts)! So here are two more:



Again, they’re not identical, but they’re similar enough that as soon as I saw the cover for Veronica by Mary Gaitskill, I immediately thought of Run by Ann Patchett...

  5. It's an obsession of mine too but my memory is so bad that I cannot recall the name of the other book when I see a similar cover.

  8. Shana (and others), are you familiar with the blog called Book CoversBook Covers? It bills itself as "a blog dedicated to the appreciation of brilliant book cover design." Mind you, one of us might just have to start a blog dedicated to lookalike covers...
