I find it interesting that all but Number 4 feature Harry and Dumbledore in some capacity. Numbers 2, 3 and 6 all use the same image. The ring of fire really gives a sense of adventure and draws me in. Number 5 shows them on top of rocks and Number 1 shows them looking at something (the pensieve). Number 4 is the only one to not have people on the cover and it shows a book. We know this to be the half-blood prince's potions book and I love how old and dingy it looks. Weirdly, I actually think Number 4 is my favorite, but this may be because I know the story.

Which one is your favorite?
