A couple of months ago, Alea at Pop Culture Junkie posted a lookalike post about the similar compositions of the covers for Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz, Be With You by Takuji Ichikawa and You Know Where to Find Me by Rachel Cohn. Then, several weeks ago, I found another cover using the same image as Deadly Little Secret, which I emailed to Alea so she could update her post (this was The First Desire by Nancy Reisman). And then I found another one (Delivering Doctor Amelia by Dan Shapiro). At this point I emailed Alea again and asked her if she’d mind if I wrote my own post about these covers (which she obviously didn’t). And then I found another very similar cover (Seek the Living by Ashley Warlick). And then another (The Windmill by Stephanie Gertler)...
The interesting thing is that these covers are for quite different genres: Delivering Doctor Amelia is nonfiction; Deadly Little Secret is a paranormal YA romance, The First Desire is historical fiction, The Windmill is contemporary fiction and Seek the Living is literary fiction. (Genre classification is according to Amazon.) Which cover works the best, in your opinion? (I think my favourites are the last two, actually.) Has anyone else spotted similar covers?
Edited to add:
Less than 20 minutes after this post went live, I found a sixth cover that matches the second set: Oystercatchers by Susan Fletcher, which I inserted above. According to Amazon, this novel is also contemporary fiction.
Edited again to add:
I found three more, which I inserted in the second row above: A Village Affair by Joanna Trollope, La cruz de San Andrés by Camilo José Cela and the Japanese translation of The Proposing Tree: A Love Story by James F. Twyman.
