The Time Will Come #5 (& Fairest of Them All #4)

The Time Will Come is a Thursday book meme which began at Books for Company, where we pick a book we've been meaning to read but haven't got around to yet, one that's been sitting on our shelf gathering dust for a while...


Fairest Of Them All is a cover comparison blog feature where we look different covers of the same book and discuss which cover we like most!


Elixir by Hilary Duff


I got this 70% off at the Angus and Robertson administrative sale, so I was pretty chuffed about that. :)
I've heard quite a few positive things about this novel, and I've youtubed a few Hilary Duff interviews, so I know that she tries to make sure everyone's aware that she didn't write her book on her own (despite the single name on the cover!). 

I'm not sure when exactly I'll have time to read this but it's definite there on my TBR list. 

I went to Target yesterday and spotted a new cover of Elixir on the stands...


I don't know if this is actually that new a cover but I hadn't seen it before. The girl reminds me of Hilary's sister, Haylie Duff and I don't normally like models on book covers so I'm not sure how I feel about this... 
Also, even though blue is my favourite colour, the colour of this one seems a bit dated to me. But I do like the film detail in there. 

Have you read elixir

I did. I liked it. It's not the best writing but the plot is very original and exciting. Enjoy.

PS I LOVE the newer cover. And once you read it, you'll see the film like cover makes more sense.
