Cover Curiosity: Dissimilar? Neigh.
About a year or so into my Cover Curiosities run, I came across Pop Culture Junkie, a blog I would come to know as the Champion of Stock Photo Book Cover Lookalikes. Seriously, I don’t even know how she does it. Puts my “heh, hey – these books vaguely resemble each other” pairings to shame.
Today I have a stock-photo-separated-at-birth-middle-grade-meets-novel-for-grown-ups situation for your enjoyment. So I’m feeling like I beat Pop Culture Junkie to the punch! Too bad I can’t take credit for it (*head droops in shame while those sad game show horns play in background*). A shout goes out to Helen (Hellllllennn!) for this one.
Cover the first:
War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
Book the second:
The Wake of Forgiveness by Bruce Machart
Side by side:
No denying this one.
