Over the weekend, I took a trip to my local Books-A-Million and found a handful of books I couldn’t wait to devour as soon as I got home. At Books-A-Million (aka. my happy place), I headed straight to the back of the bookstore to see if I could snag some books on sale, and have something new to read during the week. Boy did I luck out!
One of the books I purchased was this gem, Copycat by Kimberla Lawson Roby. This book caught my eye because I’ve never read a book about copycats. When I got home, I started reading the book and couldn’t put it down until I finished! The way the story unraveled, and the lengths the copycat went to, it was so much going on.
Reading that awesome book inspired me to search for some books about copycats for you readers! I feel like these kinds of books are great for pulling you out of a reading slump, and would make a perfect companion during your next flight.
There’s just something about our main characters fighting to regain their identities that makes you turn the page to see what happens next. I feel like the stakes are raised higher for the characters who have their own twins impersonating them!
Without further ado, get ready to meet some crazies in these 8 books about copycats!
