Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?

I finished Delirium yesterday and I quite liked it, but I hate these covers so much.

DeliriumDelirium (Delirium, #1)

The blue one with the 'cut out' text is much prettier!

So, what was one of your worst covers?

  1. The covers were too generic and vague. The old blue one was a lot more creative with a more obvious metaphor. New Follower.

  2. This is the first time I see this covers, but I'd have to stay with the other one too.

  4. In general, I don't like covers that are just faces. Doesn't say anything about the books at all- just having a girl's face.

  5. I agree! The Delirium covers are not that good. I'm not a fan and the 2nd book is so much better, but the covers are just blah.

  6. Very unoriginal- nothing special about them (but they aren't the worst I've seen). New GFC Follower!

  7. The first cover there on the left is pretty blag. I mean at least the one on the right you can see the girl a little better, the other you're right there in her face!

    Have not read these books but my sis has!

    Here's my Friday Hops

  9. I haven't seen these covers before but am not fond of them.

  10. HI, NEW FOLLOWER THROUGH gfc AS LUCYATMAX, no pix. Please visit/follow me at . My response was the Stephanie Plum series covers. Colorful, but not really appealing.
    Have a great weekend!

  11. I have the same book, the one to left. And I don't like it at all :(

    New follower and I a have giveaway on my blog:

    And here's a link to my FF :)

  12. The one on the left is really awful, but I don't mind the new one. Although I liked the first hardback design that was blue with the swirly designs much better!

  13. I still have to read that series! I guess it isn't too bad, but there's not much that's special about it o_o

    Anyway, happy Friday Mel!

  14. I don't like the cover on the left at all. I read the edition with the cover on the right, and I didn't think that it was too bad.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Though they are very similar I agree. Though I am kind of over the "big face" cover trend.

    My follow friday! Please visit!

  16. I like the second one okay, but the one on the left is weird.. It looks like a little kid, and Lena's like.. 16 right? Weird.

  17. Your pick breaks my heart because i love this series and i prefer the female on the cover not the one with just writing and blue theme.

  18. Thanks for stopping by our FF, new follower via GFC. Those covers are pretty underwhelming.

  19. Mel, thanks for stopping by! Your site is very lovely by the way.. :) New follower and I look forward to future visits! (I am also a book nerd and disney addict!)

    I haven't read delirium yet, but I've seen good reviews of it around so I may have to pick it up. I don't know that the covers necessarily intrigue me, but the eyes of the girls are quite pretty, haha.
    have a great weekend!


  20. Great pick. I like the new ones for these but the old ones are pretty bad. =] Thanks for sharing and visting My FF

  21. I still have to start this series, but I agree the first cover is not very flattering.

  22. Unfortunately that edition of Delirium is the one that I own. I don't like the cover much either! I loved the story though. :)

  23. Haven't read these but more than one person in the hop mentioned them. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following back! Have a great weekend! :D

  24. I hated the new covers for delirium too. The original one was so much better!

    Here is my post if you want to see mine
