Book Covers That Look Similar Part-2.

Hello everyone! You all loved part-1, so here is part-2 of Book Covers That Look Similar! I was inspired to do this post by Andge over @Down the Rabbit Hole.

You can check out Part-1 here.

A Group Of Heads.

Both are Young Adult and Mysteries. When I saw the cover of This Is Why We Lie, it immediately reminded me of All Your Twisted Secrets! The format of a group of heads with something slashing over them looked very similar. Also, the white background was an add-on.

Girls With Weapons.

Both are Young Adult and Historical Fiction. The color palette and tones of both the covers are very similar. The posture of the girls and holding a weapon is a point of similarity as well. The covers give a badass vibe!

Both are Fantasies and Retellings. The Purple color palettes are similar. In the first cover, the trees are forming a silhouette of faces while the feathers in the other cover are forming a circle.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Have you seen any covers that look similar? Let me know in the comments!

The Cheerleaders- Book Review.

Book: The Cheerleaders
Author: Kara Thomas
Pages: 400
Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller
Age Limit: 14+

Summary:

First, there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.

That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.

There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.

My Review:

I entered the book with no expectations. I liked the story, but it felt dry as there were no shocking moments or plot twists. The whole mystery was being solved through conversations. The ending felt flat. I loved that the story had proper pacing and the author discussed some important topics. It definitely gripped me to the story, but as I mentioned the story was very linear. Also, I loved that the author made it look very realistic by showing the problems faced by the characters. Although the ending wasn’t good, it didn’t leave me with questions, it gave the conclusion.

What I Liked:

  • Story had proper pacing (fast paced).
  • The plotline gripped me to the story.
  • Author added realistic problems faced by the characters.
  • Author discussed on some important topics.

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Story was very linear.
  • The mystery was being solved through conversations
  • Ending wasn’t upto the mark.

My Rating:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Overall, it is a good murder mystery. There are some negative points but If you are trash for murder mysteries then this one is for you!

  • All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban
  • This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher
