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:
Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy #3) by Richelle Mead
Although the model has the wrong colour hair and eyes, I really like the colour scheme used in this novel, and Hi, Dimitri!
I do like this one a lot. However it does give more of an adult paranormal vibe, and I’m not quite sure why. Maybe the fishnet arm warmers? I’d happily borrow this, because I know the series is YA, but I wouldn’t be surprised if others picked it up thinking it was for adults.
Sorry, Italy, but when you give me a random redhead (are there even any red-headed girls in this series?) crying blood from her eyeballs all I can think of is those freaking Virgin Mary statues and there’s way too much YELLOW on this cover and it’s just not very enticing. Capiche?
Again, what is with all the yellow? Is there something about shadows or kisses that inspire the use of this normally ‘happy’ colour? Also, the VA logo looks like a weird nightclub stamp on her forehead. And yellow eyes mean nothing in this series – this doesn’t have the golden eyes you find in Twilight!
