Shatter Me Series Order | How to Read Tahereh Mafi’s Books

Shatter Me Series Order

What is the best Shatter Me Series Order?

I’ve written quite a few series order posts now, including Red Queen, The Selection, and Throne of Glass.

Some of them get really complicated!

But Shatter Me isn’t. Thankfully.

The Shatter Me series order is straightforward. The only way to really read the books is in publication order.

The Shatter Me series contains six novels and five novellas. Tahereh Mafi wrote each of them in the order that you should read them, novellas and all.

That means less guesswork for you. Hurray!

After we talk about the Shatter Me series order, we’ll take a deeper dive into what Shatter Me is about for those who don’t already know.

Shatter Me Series Order

We’ll just jump right into it. Here’s the best way to read the Shatter Me series in order:

1. Shatter Me (2011)
1.5 Destroy Me (Novella) (2012)
2. Unravel Me (2013)
2.5 Fracture Me (Novella) (2013)

What About Unite Me and Find Me?

If you’ve done any bit of searching for the Shatter Me books on Amazon you might have come across the titles Unite Me and Find Me.

Unite Me contains the two novellas Destroy Me and Fracture Me (listed separately in the full Shatter Me series order above). So if you purchase those separately, you don’t need Unite Me. Or you can purchase Unite Me instead of purchasing them separately.

The same can be said of Find Me. It contains both Shadow Me and Reveal Me (also listed separately above), the two later novellas.

Shatter Me Series Summary

In full disclosure, it’s been a really long time since I read the the first batch of Shatter Me books.

For those unaware, Mafi wrote the first three books and then there was a very large gap before she wrote Books 4-6.

I have yet to read the last three books and I don’t remember much of the earlier books.

Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series has sold more than a million books. It’s a YA dystopian series centering around a girl named Juliette. Juliette has a very unique power in that anyone she touches dies.

As you can imagine this makes romance very difficult, and is a point of tension within the story. Juliette also deals with a lot of emotional baggage.

One side effect of this is that throughout the book there are crossed out lines, as if Juliette is writing in a journal and crosses out things she initially wrote, but changed her mind.

A lot of readers find this rather annoying, but you get used to it as you go along. It’s much easier for me to deal with than when an entire book is written in a different dialect, like Goddess in the Machine.

    1. Sure, you can ignore the novellas and still get the full experience. The novellas just provide extra insight into events and characters, but you won’t miss anything by not reading them.

  1. The article is awesome! The novel only provides more insight into the events and characters, but you won’t miss anything if you don’t read them.
