Same Title, Different Books: Spellbound

It’s not just me, right? There’s like 9837594594 new books out this year with the title “Spellbound.” Ok…it’s more like 3, but it’s still random and confusing, no?


1. Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz (June 21, 2011)

2. Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins (March 13, 2012)

3. Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong (July 26, 2011)

What’s the deal?? What other book titles can you think of that have been overused?

P.S. Which cover do you like best? I’m gonna go with the Kelley Armstrong cover!

    The Kelley Armstrong one is the one I used for my post today, and I should have the review up either today or tomorrow! I thought it was funny though because the last book I read and reviewed was Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz. Though the two titles do have completely different meanings. 😀

    • Awesome, Jennifer! I’ll be looking out for it! I just wonder how the authors feel about having the same book title. Don’t they worry readers will get confused?

        I didn’t even realize until I started reading the second one. I was like, wait a minute – that title sounds familiar! lol

        I would think it would be a little annoying as an author. Especially if you’d had that title picked out for a while and then another book (or two) comes out with the same thing.

    I think I like the Shultz cover the best. I have it in my NetGalley queue, so I need to get on it!

    I’ve seen these covers but it didn’t really register that they are all named the same thing (#needtogetmoresleep). I know there are a bunch of books named Nightshade and Wolfsbane, but they did not all come out at the same time…..
