NEW SHATTER ME COVER AHHHH

hi guys.
hi.
hiiiiiiiii have some very exciting news to share with you today.

SHATTER ME has a brand new cover.

i know a lot of people hate it when covers get redone, but believe it or not, it's always done for a good reason. for us, it was no different. as much as we loved the original cover for SHATTER ME, we felt like it wasn't properly reflecting the book and the feel of the story, especially as we moved forward in the series. so we tried something new.

and this new cover. gah, guys, it's ridiculous how much i love this new cover. because it's so... different.

it's strange. it's weird and beautiful and kind of unexpected and highly metaphorical in its representation. it's basically like the inside of Juliette's head. in fact, everything about it -- every detail -- is significant to the story. this cover feels so right to me. i'm crazy, crazy in love with it, and i really hope you guys like it, too!

this new cover will be hitting shelves in paperback on October 16, 2012 (same release date as DESTROY ME! ee!), so you'll be able to see it in all its shiny printed glory. also, this new style will be reflected in all of the books in the series, and, as DESTROY ME will be out in about four months, and UNRAVEL ME three months after that, i will have two more covers to share with you this month, so i'll be back with more, very soon!

and so, without further ado. here is my new friend:
(click to make it bigger!)

THERE IS A BIRD IN HER EYE, GUYS. A BIRD. i can't even.

BRB OFF TO HUG MY COMPUTER.

also: i'm finishing up the third book right now, but i'm almost done! so i will be back soon. promises.

hearts, you guys.
ALL THE HEARTS.

YA Book Queen said...

LOVE the new look! It makes me so much more thrilled that I decided to wait to buy SM until the paperback came out :)

Congrats on the awesome cover!

KT Simpson said...

I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

Kamille Elahi said...

OMFG! I want it! Although it's probably only coming out in the USA.

Amanda Olivieri said...

Oh my WHOA. I'm usually a little sad when covers get redone, because I grow so attached to the first one. But THIS. THIS!! Holy crap...this. It is gorgeous beyond words! Love, love, love it. :)

Areesha said...

Thank God I haven't bought SM yet. I'm gonna buy this on the same day as Destroy me =D

Lia Keyes said...

OH!!!! Wow. Just. So. WOW. Beeeeeeeaaaaauuuuuutiful!

Sharon (Fictionally Inclined) said...

I'm normally not a huge fan of when covers get redone, either, but. WOW. This new one is just stunning. I liked the original cover, but this one is amazing! Now I'm glad I held back on purchasing until the paperback came out.

Jenn@OwlReadIt said...

That cover is amazing!!

Cherie Reich said...

Wow! I love this cover much more than the pretty first one. :)

MizMaliciouz said...

Not a big fan of redone cover's but this one is beautiful . But I still love the original also just gonna have to own both now ;)

Elsie Chapman said...

That is an INCREDIBLE cover! Congrats!!

Laura @ My Enchanted Bookshelf said...

It's SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!

sarabara081 @ Forever 17 Books said...

Love it! Can't wait to pick up a copy!

DarlingNickey said...

THIS is GORGEOUS!

Jenn Sommersby said...

BRILLIANT. Shatter Me is a fantastic, original, meaty story, and I am thrilled with this cover. The prior cover was pretty, but you said it best -- it just didn't convey the right vibe for the story. Congratulations! This new one is definitely something to celebrate!

Kelsey said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! So much fangirling!!!! Is that a word? I don't care! LOVE, Tahereh.

Rocky said...

Oh my gosh! This is soooo incredible. I LOVE IT! It really reflects the writing style better than the first cover. I am in love too!!! SO BEAUTIFUL! Who designed this cover???

Krispy said...

I LOVE the colors, and you're right! There's so much in the cover that relates to the book. I kind of miss the strike-through in the title, but I do love the type and placement itself!

So excited to see what the book covers for the rest of the series will look like!

Josin L. McQuein said...

Now THAT is a gorgeous cover. Bravo to your designer.

lameciac said...

LOVE IT!!!!

Kapri (Book Fanatics) said...

I really like the new cover. I think I'd be a lot more apt to pick this one up if I saw it in a store than the original. I am glad they kept the tagline. Thanks for sharing!

Rafael said...

It's a beautiful cover, Tahereh! I want a new copy (I have the brazilian book!), now in English. :D

Are you serious? are you changing the covers? This pisses me off! Now the entire series won't match at all!
I also do not like this cover. Now I do not feel like buying book 2. Makes me wish I never have read the book.

Melody said...

This is beautiful! The first one was amazing, the way it was light and dark on the different sides, but this one...this one is definitely my favorite. :) Can't wait to see the whole series all together!!

bhwrn1 said...

WOWSER!

Jennie said...

I think it's an ok cover. I get what the designer was going for with the idea, but it feels a bit underdeveloped. I like the original cover better.

crazy- said...

I love that cover! Its amazing! But why doesn't the Hardbach Edition of the book get this new cover, too? Of course, I want to have the whole series in the same edition in my bookshelf. I can't understand that.

Genissa said...

Ooooh so pretty!!

Shae Carcar said...

Absolutely breath-taking! I love it WAY more than the original cover and I will definitely be re-buying it when Destroy me comes out!

Sabrina said...

Love the new cover, IMO it's way better than the old one.

Gi-Gi said...

THIS COVER IS AWESOME! :D Love it even more than the first! I hope this will also be released in hardcover >.< I might just have to grab another copy of your book because of this cover :)

Megan @ Books and Teacups said...

Seriously in love with that cover! It looks amazing!

JenniferJ said...

OMG I love it! I can't wait to see the other 2 covers!

Valerie StuckInBooks said...

TAHEREH.

I have SO MUCH LOVE for this new cover. My heart rate accelerated as soon as I saw it.

It is SO gorgeous!!!!! Now I am dying to see the other two covers! Please hurry! :-)

Much love <3

Kt Clapsadl said...

They need to offer this new cover in a hardback form so my covers will match.

Tom M Franklin said...

Gorgeous cover. You need to find out who the designer was and send him/her boxes and boxes of chocolates.

My Summer Girl said...

My birthday is the best day ever! Shatter Me and Destroy Me coming out on my birthday! I really love this cover so much more than the other one. (The first one is great, but I'm sick of just seeing pretty girls in pretty dresses on covers.) Can't wait to see this version in stores. Maybe I'll get it, making 3 copies of Shatter Me! (Arc, finished and redone) I'm obsessed!

Fizi Kizi said...

IT'S.SO.PRETTY/AMAZING/AWESOME/CRAZY! Love it! :)

sarah said...

Holy cow, that is so incredibly beautiful!!! I'd be over the moon to have such a gorgeous book cover. Mind you, the story inside is pretty awesome too :-)

Petra @ Safari Poet said...

Such a gorgeous cover!!!

Vetsy said...

WOW!! That cover is Gorgeous.

Kayla J said...

Yes yes yes!! It's gorgeous! I DO like it better than the other one!

and I love the sentiment about the cover reflecting the book itself.

Honestly, most of the time I don't really pay attention or care, unless it's a book I really love, and with Shatter Me I couldn't help but be upset with the original cover. It didn't fit at all, IMHO.

But this is wonderful! Yay!

Liza said...

Yep...awesome!

Trisha said...

Beautiful cover :) Congrats!!

Rebecca T. said...

This cover is so fantastic. I want to hug my screen and may be kind of petting it a little bit *cough*

Of course this means I will now own THREE copies of Shatter Me AND that I will have to track you down and get you to sign the paperback so I will have all 3 of them signed too :D

<3 <3 <3

Stephanie Allen said...

As much as I love the original cover, I love this one more. I'll totally have to buy the paperback when it comes out!

Amber said...

aaah it's BEAUTIFUL! and ALL THE HEARTS to you too Tahereh!

Bryan Russell said...

Okay, that is about a billion times better than the original. With extra cherries and weird thrown on top.

Yes. Oh yes.

wow nice eyes

Mari said...

Tahereh, I LOVE this new cover for Shatter Me. I haven't read the book yet and I now know I'm going to by the US paperback, all the way to me here in lil' ol' Norway, when it releases. Hands down one of the best covers I've seen in a very long while :)

Creative A said...

Oh my word, Tahereh! That new cover is amazing! And the bird in her eye--wow. Having read the book, it really does feel like the inside of Juliette's head, and it's so beautiful, that it's sort of startling.

Yay for you.

-Mandy

Ghenet Myrthil said...

It's absolutely gorgeous!!! Congrats!

Leslie S. Rose said...

Just finished SHATTER ME last week. WOW! The new cover is heart-stopping.

Lukkydivs said...

Natalia Belikov @ Dazzling Reads said...

My jaw really hit the floor!! O___O! OMG!!! Tahere!! I love this cover even more! what an amazing improvement! I loved the previous cover but this one is so, so related to the environmental theme of the book. HOLY COW!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Akira Villalpando said...

Gah! I love it! Kind of makes me glad I haven't bought it, that way I can get this new cover and the whole trilogy in the same style. :D Is it not getting a hardback?

vvlovesu said...

Ok so I have bought it and in ebook format. So will it be possible to get this cover for the ebook? Kinda like Across the Universe. The ebook cover on that has permanently changed to the newer cover. Can we get that for this book too? I REALLY love it when all my book covers match :'(

Ishta Mercurio said...

I LOVE IT.

kathy said...

Here's the thing: IT'S F***ING GORGEOUS!! (excuse my language)
Here's the other thing: IT'S ONLY FOR PAPERBACK!! :(
I have Shatter Me in hardback with the original cover design, and now when I get Unravel Me, they won't match in style! Any chance you'll be getting some hardcover jackets with the new design printed to give out?!

Unknown said...

So happy you went with the concept from my eye picture!!!! :) I freaked out when I saw this in the iTunes store.

Jenn Christensen said...

This REALLY bothers me. The hardcovers for the other books at matching to this but this is a PAPERBACK. It doesnt go with my collection no matter what I do. You should re-release it as a hardback with this new cover as well.

Mariel Coloma said...

Seriously!? This really pisses me off! So, There will be 2 shatter me in my collection? The new cover is really stunning..but having 2 shatter me with diffrent covers and THE SAME Content isnt pleasing at all...You shouldn't haven't released the original cover if your just gonna replace it..but I REALLY LOVE THE STORY♥Gives me the blues :3

Perla Aguilera said...
