Everyone once in a while, a book cover will call to mind another for me… and when that happens, I think of them as Cover Cousins.

Here’s my newest set of Cover Cousins — first, a book that I read last year and loved:

The three books are all quite different when it comes to genre and content… but those yellow covers with a single, representational figure!
What do you think?
