You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover...Or Can You?

This week I'm changing things up a bit. Rather than giving my reaction to two covers I'm going to compare and contrast the covers.

Release Date: February 3, 2009
"Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…
Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies."

Release Date: February 2009
Notice any similarities?
Welcome to the world of stock photos! Stock photos are pictures that publishers have on file and frequently use for covers. They make small changes to the photos to make it less obvious (i.e. change colors, direction of photo, superimpose other images with it, etc.) It's rare, but not unlikely, to come across two covers with the same photo on the front. I've only come across one pair in my years of reading. It just so happened that both of these books were on my TBR list and with their shared February release they ended up side by side.


  1. Oh, yeah-I noticed that with the covers of POPULAR VOTE and GEEK HIGH--it's the same girl, same outfit, same everything! Cool post idea. And I nominated you for the I HEART YOUR BLOG award because I do (: See my post for details!

  2. Want to know another pair with the same picture? --> Shelter Me and Blue Noon (Midnighters).

  3. Just wanted to tell you, I love your blog!
