Paperback Cover Reveal: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Paperback Release Date: October 16, 2012
Publisher: Harper/HarperCollins

Find it on Goodreads!

Here's the thing about the original Shatter Me cover... well... mmmmm... basically, I hated it. I'm sure it was hard to make a cover to do that book justice (it's so incredibly different and wonderful), but I felt like the original cover wouldn't really do any book justice. Let's use the Old Spice man to illustrate:

In essence, the harback cover = your man, and the paperback cover = the man your man could smell like.

We both know which one you want. I mean, LOOK AT IT. That cover is by far the best YA cover I think I have seen in years.





    *sigh* Too bad. My paperback version has the picture of the hardcover on it. *sniffles* And it wasn't cheap either. :(

    Thanks for sharing!

    I can't stop staring. ;D

  2. I have to admit, I never read this book because the original cover didn't appeal to me. I thought it was going to be another contemporary book (which I don't tend to read). Apparently I was wrong.

  3. Yeah...that whole girl in a dress thing on YA covers is getting kind of old. I mean, dresses can be fun and all, but does every YA heroine really prance around in formal wear all the time? that THAT mini rant is over, I really need to read this book. It's on my shelf. I've heard good things about it. Now I just have to get around to actually reading it!

  4. Hmm, the old cover was pretty, but this one is just gorgeous! The colors, the details, very nice :D

  5. Agreed. I mean, I wouldn't say I hated the original cover - it was pretty - but that's about it. This new one is so intriguing!

    1. I'm not one of those "always against the pretty dress book cover" people (heck, I like dresses), but I thought this cover was unoriginal and kind of badly done. It probably doesn't help that I don't like that particular dress.

      Shatter Me was such an unexpected book that I feel like it needed an unexpected cover to reflect the fact that the content is different than something you would normally find in other YA. I don't know... I think I just liked this book enough that I was sad it seemed to lose readership because people thought it would be "same-old, same-old."

  6. Woah, I didn't expect to have such a GORGEOUS cover, it's a step up from the hardcover (though I didn't hate that one either, but it was a bit bland)
