Top Ten Tuesday: Same, Same But Different


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's theme is Bookish Wishes (List the top 10 books you’d love to own and include a link to your wishlist so that people can grant your wishes. Make sure you link your wishlist to your mailing 

address or include the email address associated with your e-reader in the list description so people know how to get the book to you. After you post, jump around the Linky and grant a wish or two if you’d like. Please don’t feel obligated to send anything to anyone!).

Now, I have more than enough books so don't need anyone to buy me any, so I am going with my own theme. I have had this post sitting in draft for a while now since I first thought of it so it seems like a good opportunity to post it.

So I bring you different books with the same title

The Secret Ingredient - Sue Heath and Nancy Naigle - I read the Sue Heath book earlier this year and loved it.

Inheritance - Nora Roberts and Christopher Paolini - It's pretty clear from the covers that they are very different books

The Tea Planters Daughter - Janet McLeod Trotter  and Sara Banerji - I think I have both of these books on my Kindle

Hungry Ghosts - C J Barker and Kevin Jared Hosein - These books were both reviewed for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge so it threw my stats out a little bit until I realised it was different authors 

Life After Life - Kate Atkinson and Jill McCorkle - I listened to the Atkinson book years ago.  Must get to the next book at some point.

Can you think of other examples? There are lots out there.


  1. Hah! I like your approach. I just used recent additions to my Goodreads TBR:

  2. Ooh, this is a good twist!

    The same title can have such different implications depending on the cover and genre.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.


  3. I really like this. Just seeing them side by side is fun!

  4. Fun topic. I think I have those Tea Planter books, toa, plus Dinah Jeffrie's Tea Planter's Wife

  5. It's fun when you come across a book with an original title. However, given the billions of books, this doesn't happen as often as you would think.

  6. Several years ago I put Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton on reserve at the library and I got Little Black Lies by Sandra Block instead! The funny thing was I started reading it and had read nearly a chapter before I thought, "Hmm, I did not think this book was set in a psychiatric ward!" I am sure it was my error, not the library's, and I read it while waiting for the other one to arrive and it wasn't bad.

  7. Great idea for a post! It's so fun to compare and contrast these covers. It would be interesting to do the same with the actual stories inside.

    Happy TTT!

  8. What an interesting post--I actually really hate it when two books have the same title. I know there is no real reason this should bother me, but it does...particularly when the subject matter is the same.

  9. This is a fun topic. There are some titles that feel so generic you can't possibly remember it later. I have another "Inheritance" for you, by Dani Shapiro (excellent book).
