SHATTER ME 2 Hot 2 Read Summer Reads Hardcover Giveaway


You know that moment when summer officially hits and you go to the beach and you get a tear in your eye sand in your eye when you try to crack open your favorite beach read? Yeah. All you can do is blinkblinkblink and try to convince everyone you weren't crying overwhelmed by allergies.

When was the last time you've found and read a book you truly wanted to marry could not put down?

For me, that book was SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi.

Since today is my birthday, I'd like to give a gift to all of you. Below, you'll find the rafflecopter entry form for a hardcover copy of SHATTER ME. This is the original cover. This is not the paperback of the new style/covers that were revealed recently on MTV's Hollywood Crush.

Speaking of the new lovelies, here are all three new covers:


This is the new cover for the paperback. I've got it featured on the sidebar, so blink twice (if you're seeing double) and click the link to preorder. It reminded me of the special eyelashes Effie Trinket wore in THE HUNGER GAMES movie. I love all the details, including the one hidden in the iris of the eye.


I also like how they link to the DESTROY ME cover which is like SHATTER ME 1.5, from Warner's perspective!! I cannot wait to read this. Seriously. Cannot. Wait.


And then there's the cherry on top jewel in the crown of these covers (so far)--UNRAVEL ME. I say that because I'm counting on Tahereh to write another "inbetween" story that lands somewhere between UNRAVEL ME and the final NAME ME book of the trilogy. I also say that, because I really love the first two covers as well. There's too much shiny all the things to stare at.

If you guessed correctly that this was the book giveaway I hinted at in my UNDER THE NEVER SKY giveaway, you were right pat yourself on the back, you smartypants! And, if you missed my review of SHATTER ME at the beginning of 2012, click the link for my gasquillion starred review (I wish I could give it that many stars! 5 stars just aren't enough.)

I did ask Tahereh to answer a few interview questions, but unfortunately, she's been on tour a TON recently, and just got back from South America. If she's able to answer my questions, I'll definitely post them here for you to see.

If you haven't seen the book trailer for SHATTER ME, click here now check it out here:


Also, Tahereh is a HOOT to follow, so be sure to follow her everywhere she lurks! She has a great blog called, GRAB A PEN, and can usually be found lurking on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. You should totally stalk her like a creeper engage in an ontological dialogue about Team Warner or Team Adam. Or cake.

If you didn't win a hardcover of UNDER THE NEVER SKY, you should totally enter to win a copy of SHATTER ME. I'll finish out the summer with another great giveaway in August, so please keep checking back for new and great book reviews, writerly blog posts, and giveaways. Let's celebrate!!

The contest runs for two weeks to give everyone a chance to enter, and once the winners confirm their addresses, the winners names will be posted right here, so keep checking back.
I wish you all a great summer with great vacation getaways, and good books to enjoy while you're there!

This giveaway is for US residents only. There will be International giveaways again soon.

Entries into the Giveaway will be checked for validity. Entries that have not completed requirements will be voided. To put it simply: please be honest.

  6. The last book I couldnt put down before Shatter me was Fever by Lauren DeStefano. I am a huge fan of dystopian novels. In general, of YA novels. This book is said to be the Hunger Games meets X-Men. I LOVE the X-Men and the Hunger Games. In this book I get 2 in 1. Oh, it truly is amaxing

    1. Glad you're interested in SHATTER ME. What was your last unputdownable book? Good Luck.

  8. I'm going to say Hollywood Ever After by Sasha Summers. I read it recently and really enjoyed it. And yes, I didn't want to put it down. LOL To me it didn't feel like I was reading a book. It felt more like I was there with the characters, watching their lives play out.

    No, I have not read Shatter Me yet. I would love to, of course. What interests me if that Juliette's touch kills. I'm curious as to how that plays out in the story, particularly the romance aspect of the book.

    Love all the new covers too! :D

    Although I'm late, I hope you had a fantastic birthday! And thank you for the chance to win Shatter Me.
