More news on Harry Potter…

Posted in Harry Potter at 8:12 pm by librarygirl

For all those who are salivating for news about the latest and final Harry Potter book, here’s a tiny update. Scholastic, the publisher of the Harry Potter series, has released the official cover for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. From what I could tell, the cover reveals very little about the zealously hypothesized final plot. According to USA Today, the back of the cover shows He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named reaching out for Harry, while the front portrays Harry surrounded by apparent distruction. In my humble opinion, the cover is not very exciting. I am a huge fan of Harry Potter and just like everyone else I can’t wait for the last book to come out but honestly the cover looked a little boring. 

Look at the cover for yourself here, and let me know what you think of it. Does it make you that much more excited about reading the book or do you think something about it is lacking?
