Double Take, Part XXI

I made a very similar double take post before, but this one is an exact match.

Dreaming of Amelia by Jaclyn Moriarty will be published April 2010 by MacMillan UK.

Now for the doppelganger:

The Mermaid’s Mirror by L.K. Madigan will be published in October 2010 by Houghton Mifflin (I’m not 100% sure on the publisher on this one, but I’m going to guess it’s the same publisher as her first book Flash Burnout).

I hope someone catches this one. If you remember the double take of The Mark and The Girl with the Mermaid Hair, the publisher changed the cover of The Mark in order to avoid this double take. I ended up liking the new one better, actually.

Which one of these two do you prefer? I like The Mermaid’s Mirror just a little more — it is more realistic and the colors are very cool, where the other one looks a bit cartoonish.

    Ooh! I like them both. And while it's the same picture, I feel like they're different enough that it's okay.
    It's hard to say which one I like more, as they both have such different feels to them.

    I like the second better. It's so striking, and such a great use of the picture. It makes me want it.
    I do a similar thing on my blog, so if you don't mind, I am totally filing this one away for later use… 😛

    I'd prefer you file it away and give credit, if you do use it. It takes a long time to actually find these, so any props for the find it really appreciated.

    I definitely like the The Mermaid's Mirror more, of course I've read that book and loved it so….
