Double Take, Swingin’ Style

I love when a double take sneaks up on me. This week, I saw this book pop up on GoodReads:

Palms to the Ground by Amy Stolls (published in 2005). I love the white with the tire swing and the feet in the air. There is a carefree feeling in this cover.

And as soon as I saw it, I knew it had a twin, and I knew exactly who it was.

The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti (2009). This one features the color block on the top 1/3 of the front cover that runs through all of the hard cover issues of Caletti’s titles. It also features a little bit of a color saturation difference, making the green of the leaves stand out a little more.

I like both of them for different reasons, but I do have to say I think that the cover for Palms to the Ground doesn’t really go with the title.

Do you prefer one over the other?

    Oh wow–good catch! Those are so similar. I like the white background, but wish the leaves were greener. I can't pick which is better. That's eery though!
