Fairest of them all #3 & The Time Will Come #3

This Thursday I thought I'd mesh these two memes together again. I thought of a really good book I've yet to read, and a new version (including cover!!) came out recently so I wanna know your thoughts!

So I guess you have probably heard of this one....

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

The Time Will Come is a meme that started at Books For Company
I think I'm crazy to have had this book for so long and still not read it yet. I suppose that's due to all the TV shows I watch (have you seen The Lying Game yet? It looks pretty good so far). 
Anyway... the next instalment is being released soon and I still haven't read the first one yet! I remember (vaguely) the hype surrounding this, but tell me - did you like Delirium? What were your favourite bits of it? 

There are a lot of great covers of Delirium 

The main one
My copy
Special edition
The German one is hands down my favourite cover - I love the colours, the scribbling, the face/model (normally I don't like faces on covers), and especially how it has the Latin 'technical' term for the disease on the cover as well. 
I'm actually not a big fan of any of the other covers except maybe the Spanish one. 

Which is your favourite?

I will always always love the original cover best!

I really enjoyed Delirium. I want Oliver to explain a few more things in the sequel, and delve more deeply into the world she's set up, but overall, yeah, it's a pretty solid and fab read. :D

I've had a copy of this on my shelf for a few months now too, still unread but I'll get to it eventually, and I've got the same copy as you. I think I like the German one best, it's so pretty!
