Waiting on Wednesday (August 14)


Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.


Harry Potter Books 1-7

 I'll probably do a post on this at some point, so it seems a bit excessive to post all 7 covers and slow everyone's loading time down. 

I actually really like the new covers. Of course, the originals will always have a special place in my heart, but I'm afraid that the next time I pick them up to read them they are going to disintegrate in my hands. They are well loved, and need some major book surgery. 

What do you think? Are you pro-new cover or are you a purist?

I like these new covers, they're so cute! I agree, the original covers will always have a special place in my heart too, I must've read them at least three times. I also own the adult covers version, I liked them too. I just like everything HP-related :)

Here’s my WoW.

I never really loved the old covers..though they're sentimental at this point! I'm down for some new covers though.

I like the new covers, but I always wonder why they decide to change them. It seems like lately I've noticed that the second hardback book is changing and matching the paperback of the first book (Unravel Me is an example). Redoing the whole series makes more sense. Love HP! ~Pam

Aha - great pick for a WoW!! I really want these. SO BAD. My old ones are still in pretty good condition so that's not the issue. Just money. And I think I will always love my old ones more, just because they bring up so many good feelings and memories when I see them. But these are gorge!

I don't think I'll buy the new covers because I am a little bit of a purist... but I do really love the new covers. They're so intricate and lovely.

What a cool pick - I didn't even realize there were new covers! From this one, though, I'd say I'm pro. I love the colors and the scene that was chosen.

I have all my originals neatly tucked on a shelf and the digital copies in my eReader so I can read them over and over without any disintegration worries. :)

Thanks for checking out my WoW earlier.

I like the new covers, but I love the old covers, too. So I'm stuck.

It's beautiful, for sure. :)

What fun new covers! i'll have to tell our store to return the old ones and order the new ones if they don't plan to already. Fun pick!!

I really like these covers too and will have to check them out when I see them in the bookstore.

I love the new covers, but I wish I could just order the dust jackets separate lol I don't want to have to buy an entire new set, so I'm going to skip out on it.
