Reading Shatter Me novels and novellas in order
There are 11 books in the Shatter Me Series In Order.
Five standalone novellas and two novel trilogy are included in this collection. The reading order can be a little perplexing for some readers because all volumes have the same naming convention and comparable book covers. There are no time jumps to cause confusion because Tahereh Mafi released all the novels in order of their publication.
You can skip the novellas if you’d prefer because they are told from a different point of view and aren’t necessary for the development of the plot. You can tell the covers from the novels because they have closed eyes rather than open ones.
Without further ado, here is the reading order for the Shatter Me books and novellas.
