Zoraida I would argue that the covers for Of Poseidon and Lies Beneath aren't drowning girls, but just swimming.

There are so many!


message 2: by Randi (new)

Randi (The Artist Formerly known as Guitar Chick) Thanks Olivia!


message 3: by oliviasbooks (new)

oliviasbooks I included "diving" into the description, because I believe only a few covers show girls who are really supposed to look dying.


Kagama-the Literaturevixen Seems there is a trend going on with girls drowning on bookcovers...scary 0o


message 5: by Hannah (new)

Hannah Ha! Interesting list...


message 6: by Mackenzie (new)

Mackenzie Moran ughhhh I'm trying to find a book that I once read a couple years ago and I don't remember the author or title. All I know is that the cover is a girl drowning. So frustrating..


message 7: by oliviasbooks (new)

oliviasbooks Mackenzie, there is a group especially dedicated to finding forgotten books: http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1...

Maybe post a query there?


message 8: by Andréa (new)

Andréa I have seen so many of these that I came to Listopia to create this list if it didn't already exist... Glad to see someone beat me to it!


message 9: by oliviasbooks (new)

oliviasbooks :-D. Listopia is great for this kind of shared ideas and joined efforts, isn't it?
