  1. I really like the polish one! I might have picked it up sooner had I seen that one, I have to admit I was hesitant with the US version.. but I eventually broke down, I enjoyed the story even though it wasn't my favorite, will be going and picking up #2 eventually though :)

  2. I like the UK one best! The German one is kinda scary, that guy is creeping me out.

  4. I like the UK one the best. I love how it's the picture of the Maze and the runner in the title and the rest is just black. I also absolutely love that it has those simple three words separated by periods on top. I find that this cover brings more suspense and it brings in the reader. If I were to see this cover at a bookstore and I hadn't read the book yet, I would definitely grab it and read it:)

  6. I reallllly like that UK one!! I'm a fan of the North American one too, though... I love the colours of the covers for that trilogy. Speaking of, I still need to read the 3rd book!!
