We've got a bunch from one photo shoot and then one with a similar pose. Whoa that's a lot of covers! I think my favorite is Crossing Oceans, the rest have some less than pleasing color palettes and I don't like the playing cards on the first cover.

Thanks to Kelsey, Deborah, Irish, and Anghalina for pointing out this lookalike!

Have you spotted a Lookalike you would like to contribute? Send me an email!

And since this is Lookalikes 100 (WOW!) a few more fun things!

Check out the first lookalike I ever posted, on January 2nd 2007! It's for two movie posters and was entitled Umm What?! I was literally the only reader back then I think! And because of when I started numbering my posts I think this is actually really the 104th lookalike, oops!

Thanks to Pam of Bookalicious and all the other tweeters who helped me brainstorm some ways to celebrate Lookalikes 100th post!

And a big thanks to everyone that has taken the time to suggest and submit a lookalike!!!!! Here's to 100 more!


  1. Some cool lookalikes!

  2. Wowee Zowee! Great way to celebrate 100! Loves it!

  3. I love these posts! I must not be very observant since I never notice lookalikes "in the wild!"

  4. Congrats on reaching 100!
    I love these posts!

  5. I like the very top one, excluding the cards.

  6. I absolutely love this feature -- I may not always comment but I always look! Yes! Here's to 100 more!

  7. This is one of my favorite parts of your blog. I look forward to going and voting now and future editions of lookalikes!

  8. Wow! Look at all those look alikes. It's amazing how often the same picture is reused.

  9. Congrats on hitting #100! I love your Lookalike posts.

  10. Oh dear ... not sure I'd like people to see my book cover and think about cold sores!

    As for the newbies: I loved the color saturation of Finding Alice so much that I didn't notice the playing cards until you mentioned it. But yeah ... those are kind of silly and they look all photoshoppy.

  11. This was cool! Had no idea. I found your site since I have a google alert on my title... crossing oceans :) Anyway you'd let us repost this on We'd give you full credit of course and link back. I just think it's interesting and believe our readership will too. Thanks and glad to find you.

    1. I'm the author of The Way Life Should Be and I had no idea either ... okay, nearly two years later. I'd seen one other of these, but had no idea they used that same shoot for so many covers. You'd think there'd be some kind of restrictions!

  12. Thanks everyone and thanks for all your help in making this feature possible!

    Gina Holmes- Most definitely, I bet they would like it too! I'd love to see the link when it goes up!

  13. Love this post, especially the top lookalikes.

  14. Congratulations on 100 Lookalikes. I love this feature.

  15. Definitely Finding Alice!
    And whenever I see a new Lookalike in my newsfeed, I simply must click on it--this is basically my favorite blog feature ever!
