Buy Borrow Burn (19)

banner buy borrow burn

Welcome to Young Adult At Heart’s 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:

Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth


Allégeance (Divergent, #3)

French 2013

I think this is so classy, I imagine that gold is foil and it contrasts so nicely with the black background. I also like how that random E is backwards in the ‘Divergente’ series title. It’s very ‘Hunger Games’ for obvious reasons.



HarperCollins 2014

This is another classy looking cover, the contrast is nice. I’ve mentioned before how I like icy themed things and I love the ice blue against the black and the snowflake up the top. I wonder if it’s a metaphor for Divergents being ‘special snowflakes’? The metallic looking text looks nice, clean and sharp as well.



Arabian 2013

Let’s use a picture of the actors from the first film on the third book because it’s not like Tris changes her hair or anything. And I hate the background and the blue tint used behind the title font.

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