The Drafts Folder: I Wonder Who This Lady Is

Since I only do my Impressions post every other Wednesday, I thought I’d keep things interesting and dig into my drafts and random blog titles I’ve found written in my planner over the past couple of years. There are a lot of them, and I don’t even know what some of them were supposed to be about, so they’ll be alternating with the Impressions post until I’ve finished amusing myself with them. And maybe you, if I’m lucky.

The second note for a potential blog post back in October 2020 was “I Wonder Who This Lady Is”. Considering that was 2 years ago, it took me a bit to figure out which lady I was referring to. At least, I think I figured out which lady. And by lady, I mean a lady I kept seeing on book covers. I promise I don’t randomly stalk people and wonder who they are.

Anyways, my first thought was, “Do I really have that much to say about that?” Well, probably not, seeing as how it was never written and never even appeared as the title to a draft with nothing written in the post. So let’s see just how long I can get this to be. And maybe you’ll recall seeing her on book covers.

This is the lady I kept seeing everywhere:

I ended up not liking this book, and really didn’t enjoy the second half. But I did become curious about this woman! After this book, I started seeing her in different poses and with different colors, but it was always her. I believe most of the covers I saw her on were for fantasy books, but, as this was the only one I actually read, I can’t accurately say. It must have been because I didn’t like this book that I skipped the other books I saw her on. Though this one tends to remind me of her:

Book Review: Queen of the Unwanted by Jenna Glass, Book 2 in the Women's War series, a feminist fantasy novel

It must be the crown and flowing hair.

And, yup, that’s about all I have to say. I haven’t seen her in well over a year, so I must have just forgotten about her, which meant this post was never written. Until now, when I’m madly trying to remember what the point of this post was supposed to be.

Have you seen this lady on book covers?

  1. I know what you mean, but not specifically this lady. I’ve noticed there have been a lot of books that I think I’ve read and it’s only that I’ve seen a similar cover on a book (or books) I’ve already read. Maybe it’s just the law of large numbers because I’ve read so many books in my life, but it does get me thinking about the artist and whether they only have so many ideas.

    1. There have been a lot of covers that seem to be repeated, especially in the last few years. It gets a little confusing wondering if maybe I’ve read it before or not. I miss all the 90s books I read where every cover was different, so I tend to wonder along with you if the artists only have so many ideas. When I was self-publishing, I do remember looking through sites with free images, and now I see a bunch of them popping up all over the place on so many books, so maybe it’s just the cheaper route. But it’s a little sad to think about considering there are so many talented artists out there.

    1. I had no idea! It’s a terrible practice. Thanks for sending the link. I couldn’t understand it, but, yes, the images made it clear. What a terrible thing to happen!


    1. Haha, it was quite an interesting experience, especially since I have a hard time believing anything happened after March 2020. I don’t even know if I picked the right lady, but she’s definitely popped up a lot. As a matter of fact, I think she was on a cover of a book published recently…
