What fun! Did you find all of these using the books themselves or using google? I’ve never noticed the HP one. So clever!! To be honest, I only learned recently that Stephen King intentionally overlaps all his books. For a long time I just thought he was really bad at thinking up character names. 😂🙈

Thanks Maraia! A mixture! I spotted the Series of Unfortunate Events ones as I’m watching the series at the mo so I was looking at the artwork in the books, and the HP one I realised a while back, but I have no idea about Stephen King other than that he does leave Easter eggs, so I had to google It Easter eggs so I didn’t get spoilers 😂 Haha! Maybe he is, and that’s why he just reuses the characters 😂

This was fun. Loved the one about Han Solo / Indiana Jones, and I knew that about Lord of the Rings.. because my Estonian copies have the strips of runes on the covers too, and young me went and transcribed them with the help of the rune alphabet. I loved that the designers actually went as far as write the words in runes, but in Estonian. Same with Balin’s grave inscription in the middle of FotR.
Not sure if exactly Easter eggs, but David Mitchell he references a character or event briefly in a book, that is a major thing in another. Or even within one book (Ghostwritten), but stories about different characters, there’s always a little clue that ties the different stories together. Fun to notice those.
Oh, and of my recent reads. Testing Pandora, by Kaia Sonderby, the main character mentions sparkling vampires.

Thanks Mooni! Glad you enjoyed!
Ooh, that’s so cool! Young me would never have thought to do that! That is next level detail though – suppose it’s only fitting for Tolkien!
I still need to read some David Mitchell! I’ve had The Bone Clocks and of course, Cloud Atlas, for years now and just haven’t gotten round to them! 🙈 That’s interesting though – I’ll look out for that when I do!
Oh, I’ve heard of that author! Haha, brilliant! Let me know how the book is!
