Buy Borrow Burn (7)


Welcome to the Moonlight Library’s new original feature, Buy Borrow Burn.
It’s a fun game based on Snog Marry Avoid/Marry Kiss Kill.
If we had unlimited funds, which cover would be the one we’d buy*, borrow, or burn**?
*This is completely subjective and my favourite cover may not be yours.
**In no way do we wish to insult anyone and no, we wouldn’t actually ‘burn’ the book, this is completely hypothetical.

Let me know which book cover you’d Buy Borrow or Burn!

This week’s book covers:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
by JK Rowling



Bloomsbury 2007

I love purple, so I love this. I love the fire and lightning contrast as well. I love Harry’s defiance and the artist impression of Voldemort. Basically it’s just a really cool cover.



Scholastic 15th Anniversary

There’s nothing particularly wrong with this cover. I love the the dragon (that I don’t remember because I’ve only read Deathly Hallows once when it came out years ago) and the orange is a nice contrast to our plucky trio, Hermione taking centre stage because she’s a BAMF. I get the feeling this is more of a grown up cover than the previous one, too. Like it’s aiming more at a YA audience than a MG audience.




I just don’t even know what’s going on with this one. I think the wing-like things are supposed to be people, a man and a woman maybe, but whom? Lily and Snape? And what’s with the flower? And why is it so boring? I would never pick this cover up in a book shop. It’s just so blah.

Which out of these three covers would you buy, borrow, or burn?
