Many Covers Monday - Shatter Me

by - April 28, 2014

Today we're looking at the many different covers of 's Shatter Me. Some are rejackets and others are foreign language covers.
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

(UK/US) Left is used for both UK and US covers now I believe and right was the original US cover. Although it is an iconic cover, there are far too many girls in dresses on covers I've found...

Left is stunning and the covers that come after are so beautiful, I want them all as prints on my wall. *grabby hands*

(Australian/Czech) Ehhhh..... I don't like either of them. Left is just a girl with her hair in her face and right looks like a doll bride wrapped in cellophane... what.

(French/German) I'll skip right to German. Yes, that cover is on the book by that author that I cannot remember the name of. It's a very, very odd choice. If I didn't know that this cover on another book was basically iconic, it would win this.

French is just what. It looks like a fluffy fairy book and advertises Twilight on it which is no way to advertise a book. I stuck the text into Google translate and was told it means: ''The new revelation from that discovered Twilight''

Whatever that means.

(Hungarian/Indonesian) Left is nice. I like the background and it is eye catching! More dresses though because pretty girls don't wear jeans. Right is obviously heavily inspired by the original book cover and Anne Hathaway's Oscars dress...

(Italian/Polish) Now THESE are covers I can get excited about. FEATHERS. I love feathers! And girls in freaky positions like This Is Not A Test and Hourglass, I'm all for it. Yes. Yes Yes.

(Spanish) Oh gosh that right cover. It looks like a 60's movie poster for a film about a girl who drinks something weird and stamps all over buildings.

Is this book about Alice in Wonderland?


It was never going to be anything else really! This cover is just perfect in it's simplicity. 

And it's very eye catching... *snort*

Next week: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

    I definitely agree with you! That one is the best! I'm glad they changed it, because the original us is awful!

  2. Wow, most of these are just plain weird. And I'm pretty sure the picture of the girl on the German cover also appears on the cover for Carrier of the Mark. I'm with you--I like the UK/US, Polish, and Italian covers best (although the Italian cover looks a little too much like Daughter of Smoke and Bone).

  3. Holy guacamole! There are SO MANY covers for this one! The German one is pretty cool...but I agree that the most "eye-catching" is the one you picked XD

  4. I do agree with your winner (and the original US cover is just awful, every time I see it somewhere I cringe). I also like the Italian one, and for some reason, I find the Czech one really appealing. It just kind of fits with the book I think.

  5. Agree! I like the "winner" cover, although it's hard to find a hardback of that from where I am :/

  6. The "Eye" covers have grown on me. As for the original cover, it looks like the Indonesian cover was based on it, and turned out alot better!

    LOL @ the fact the German cover is the same as the cover for *Carrier of the Mark* (

    Also, I love that Polish cover with all the broken glass. (But, for some reason, it reminds me of the covers of the *Matched* trilogy.)
