I know I’m an evil genius and mastermind of all, but I have memory problems, okay? It’s hard to believe. But at least I’m humble and admit it. I’m a humble evil genius and mastermind of all.
I get all the covers and titles so very confused. But maybe it’s just me?
I honestly thought these were the same book. It wasn’t until I was writing a comment on someone’s post (it sounded like this “oh I really want to read Catch a Falling Star because it’s a Peter Pan rewrite!”) when I realised I was, in fact, 100% wrong.
Catch a Falling Star is about Hollywood and Second Star is about Neverland. OBVIOUSLY.
I mentioned this in my review of Panic. I thought Panic was about serial killers…my bad.
I got Tales from the Half-Continent as an ARC and I was so excited!! Until…I realised it wasn’t about Alex Wafare. Oh. Well then.
The covers aren’t so similiar here, it’s the NAMES. I borrowed out Shadow and Bone from the library and honestly thought I was getting Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Disappointment was short-lived, because…Darkling.
What is it about living next door on the fence with a bunch of boys? It’s popular. ONE of these books I’m super excited for. I have no idea which it is.
I think both of these girls and dudes have attachment issues. They were probably abandoned at a daycare at some point in their toddler lives.
I didn’t realise that this was the same author! In a way, that explains the similarities in titles and covers…but is that a good thing or a bad thing? I want to read both these books (I think). I mean, I thought they were the same book, soooo…
Breaking windows. Breaking faces.
Creepy ghost like girls! Who’d have thought it was this popular, right? I’ve read Asylum, so you can imagine my surprise when I said I’d read Insanity…and I hadn’t. I’m such a sneaky little liar without even knowing it.
First of all, I haven’t read Fish Eyes and…Fish Eyes?? That’s NOT very good for that girl’s self-esteem, but whatever. I think both these covers are quite gorgeous and eye-catching and…the same.
Drowning is a popular pastime in YA books. Apparently, they’re “learning” not to do it, but it does make for epic covers, does it not? I think the girl in the 2nd book is going to need more than TEN breaths if she continues walking around in the bottom of her pool.
I know I’m being unnecessarily picky, but please! Put some clothes on, people! I’ve never seen snow and I also get freezing cold when the temperature is only 10 degrees celsius (50 fahrenheit). But no shoes and short sleeves? It’s no wonder I completely muddled this one.
Also bad taste in lipstick, but each to their own. Who am I to judge makeup preferences?
Are similar book covers a bad thing or a good thing? Is there a lack of imagination in the titling and cover designing department, or is this just a normal and accepted occurrence?
Personally, I find it frustrating. I end up reading books I didn’t think I was reading. I end up saying “I want to read that” when I really don’t (thus I am a liar…but a fabulous one) because I’m thinking of a different book.
But the real question: am I the only one confusing all the covers or does it happen to you as well? Which covers do you confuse?
Cait inherited her memory difficulties from her family. At least, she thinks she did. Hmm…does she have a family? Where are they… Her name is also possibly Dory and she’s helping Marlin find his son, Elmo. Currently, she’s reading Looking for JJ…ironic isn’t it? At least she’s not the only one losing and confusing things!
