Cover Trend: Curled Up in a Ball

Here's something that I've noticed. Books that feature a main character curled up in a ball.

Juliet Immortal 
by Stacey Jay 
Delacorte Books for Young Readers 
August 2011

Romeo and Juliet with a vampire twist. Juliet is a vampire-hunter, Romeo, a vampire. I've heard this compared to Dracula in Love by Karen Essex. I really enjoyed Jay's irreverant, Buffy-the-Vampire-Slayer-inspired You Are So Undead to Me series, so I think this one will be fun.

A lesbian re-telling of the Cinderella story. I loved the society of Huntresses and I'm looking forward to reading the prequel Huntress.

This is the sequel to Dreaming Anastasia. Historical fiction/paranormal, sounds kind of awesome.

Savannah Colbert is half-vampire, half-wizard and struggles with forbidden romance! Sounds like my kind of book.

Can you think of any that I've missed? Let me know in the comments.


  1. I love all these covers and of course they are all wearing beautiful dresses. I just finished Juliet Immortal last night and there aren't any actual vampires, it's more like soul stealing and corrupting people than bloodsucking. I'll try to write my review today.
    Truly Bookish

  2. I love your post idea! I've heard of most of those, but I hadn't connect how similar the covers are. :)

  3. I have Juliet Immortal next on my things to read... just have to finish a few other books I'm reading first.

  4. These Cover trend posts are clever! I never really notice stuff like that unless you stick them next to each other. I am looking forward to Juliet Immortal and Crave whenever I get the chance to read them. Look forward to checking out more posts like this!
