Recreate the Cover: Shatter Me

Princess Bookie's Contest Craze is going on right now and as part of it, she's hosting a recreate the cover mini challenge.

I haven't been participating as much as I had hoped (or been blogging/commenting as much as I'd like) lately, but I couldn't pass this up. I love recreate the cover challenges and for this one, I decided to tackle Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. 

I'm pretty sure everyone knows that I loved this book hardcore, but the cover is nothing like what I would have expected, so I figured I'd recreate it to look a little more like what I thought it'd be.

The original:

My take on it:

Let me know what you think in the comments! I'm actually very happy with my end result and if you've read the book, you'll appreciate the subtle birds too. I'd appreciate it if, when voting rolls around, you support Princess Bookie's contest craze and vote - even if it's not for me...though I'd love that too :)

I like it, but it needs to be more book-shaped XD I'll have to make sure and go vote when it's time. Good luck!

BrittLit - You know, I was going to fix the sizing on it, but then got too lazy. I went back and adjusted it though because when I looked at it again, it was throwing me off with it's unbook-shapeliness. :)

I love it! I still haven't read it, but it's sitting there waiting for me. I'm not a big fan of the cover but since I haven't read it yet it's hard to judge it too much. I'll have to read it now and see if your cover just 'goes' better. It's pretty awesome though!

Whoa!! Super awesome cover. I really love the shattered effect; totally goes with the title. :)

Love your cover. It seems like lately to many books have the pretty girl with a dress. I'm not complaining sometimes those make for nice covers. I like yours as well. :) I've been dying to read this forever. I can't wait til it comes out. I've heard so many good things from the people who have read it.
