Wildcard (HP Week Day 6!)

Welcome to Harry Potter Week!!!!

June 26th marks the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter being released in the US!!!!! (its the 21st anniversary in the UK) To celebrate, Weird Zeal created a week long Harry Potter event! Each day there will be a different post to participate in! Check out Weird Zeal’s list of all the posts! I will probably not be participating in all of them, but I am looking forward to participating in some!

Friday Face-Off

For the Wildcard post I decided to do a Friday Face-off type post and compare all the covers for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Yes I know its not Friday, but that is the name of the meme where you compare covers :p )

That is 72 different editions of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone! Usually for Friday Face off I would list my 2-4 least favorite, my 2-4 favorite, and then pick an overall favorite. But there are too many great covers!!!! I tried to narrow it down to my favorites and ended up with 30 covers I really liked! That wasn’t going to cut it so I did a cover battle and narrowed it down that way:


Here are my top 3 covers:

My favorite of those three is:


I don’t know what it is about this cover but I love it! I love the simplicity and the colors and its just great!

Which one is your favorite?

  1. OH DEAR GOD I NEED THEM ALL! I’ve actually decided that when I travel to a new country I’m going to buy the first HP book. And if I go to that country again, I’ll buy the second. And so on and so forth. I really do love the one you chose as the winner. And the Bloomsbury 2015, Arthur 2015, Росмэн 2008, and the Народна књига 2004 because it looks like A Series of Unfortunate Events.

    1. I didn’t really like Народна књига 2004 because it did seem to copy A Series of Unfortunate Events but I did think it was funny! I really like all the other ones you like tho!! That is a brilliant idea!! That is a great collectors item from everywhere you have traveled and it would make an awesome HP collection! I want to do that! But I have missed out on all the places I have traveled so far 😦

      I am thinking of buying the French edition that was my favorite overall, but to get it shipped from France would be $30 and idk if I can spend that much on one book 😦 but I really want it!!!

      1. A series of Unfortunate Events has such a unique cover I am surprised they copied it like that! haha and yup we are on the same page 😀

        Its just so expensive but there are so many cool copies!!!


    1. So many covers! And that is just the first book in the series! There are some weird ones and bad ones and great ones haha. My fav is a french edition (I looked it up after doing the post!)


    1. I won a UK Amazon gift card in a giveaway and I used it to buy the Bloomsbury 2014 box set 😀 They are awesome! If you are in the US it is cheaper to buy them from the UK Amazon sight and pay for shipping then it is to just buy them here!
