To be a TCF Copy Cat, you must duplicate some aspect of the chosen book.

It could be a word from the title, the author's name, something on the cover, the genre, the year it was first published, the plot, or a main character's name. The possibilities to imitate are endless.

Levels:
a bit familiar: 1-2 books
just 'inspiration': 3-4 books
too close for comfort: 5-6 books
blatant plagiarism: 7+ books
ultimate copy cat: read the book

Rules:
Duration : January 1 - 31, 2017
Books must be at least 150 pages.
You must state how your book copies this month's book.

Whether or not you liked to story, you have to admit the cover is distinctive.
This month's book is Twilight.
