Bloody Bookaholic's Commandment:

Thou Shall Read Till Thy Eyes Bleed

Deja Cover

I love covers, it's one of my favorite parts about buying a book. I get so excited whenever I see a new cover join the club. Blood rushed, pupils dilate, the whole nine yards. That's what happened when I saw these 2 pretty covers, but then I looked at them closer and I got a sense of deja vu. Haven't I seen these before?

 Paperback, 304 pages
Expected publication: June 21st 2011 by HarlequinTeen

The first boy disappeared on the day of his birth, on a night when the pale yellow moon of the nighttime sky turned red and bathed the heavens in the ghastly color of blood, on the same night the Kingdom of Cokyri abruptly ceased its merciless attack.
Across the land of Hytanica, under the shadow of the crimson moon, infant boys continued to vanish. Not until the blood had faded from the sky did the disappearances stop and the bodies of the murdered infants were found outside the gates of the city, a final word from the greatest enemy Hytanica had ever known. For the next sixteen years, peace reigned, but one mystery remained unsolved. The Cokyrians had abducted forty-nine newborns, but returned only forty-eight bodies.
Now, as seventeen-year-old Princess Alera of Hytanica is besieged from all sides by suitors vying for the Throne, a teenage Cokyrian boy, Narian, is encountered within the walls of her Kingdom, a boy who will show Alera a world where women serve a purpose and not just a husband. As Narian helps Alera find her voice, she struggles against an arranged marriage that will shatter the life she has scarcely begun to live. And when Narian's shocking past is uncovered, and war with Cokyri looms once more, he must fight to defy a fate ordained at his birth.  
Does this cover remind any of you of another cover? Maybe of a book by miss Anna Godbersen? The Bright Young Things covers perhaps?


Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: August 30th 2011 by Simon Pulse

The first book in a paranormal teen trilogy featuring three beautiful, mysterious girls wreaking havoc on a small New England town.
Small teaser I know, I found no long book description. It sounds nice for now, and the cover is a looker, but everytime I see it ir reminds me of the Firelight Cover.

And that's all for today folks! So is it just me? Or is my feeling of deja vu accurate?


  1. This is hilarious.

    Cynthia Eden's Deadly series is eerily similar to Rebecca Zanetti's Fated series covers.

    I wonder if the different companies use the same artists?

    Great post! Thanks!

  2. When I saw that first cover, all I could think was, "Wow, did Godbersen release another book? What's going on?" I definitely felt deja vu there.

  3. Definitely accurate on the Legacy cover! I thought it WAS a Bright Young Things cover before I read more closely lol.

  4. I agree! The first cover also brought to mind Abandon by Meg Cabot, what with the gold designs and dark background.

  5. @Briana didn't think about that one, but good eye!

    @Bonnie they might have, you never know!


Read your opinion, I want. Leave a comment, you shall.
