Changing Covers #13

Hi everyone welcome to my new weekly feature which all about covers that change either in the middle of the series or even when the series had finished. (The covers will mainly be UK changes but also from the USA.) I decided to do this feature as there has been so many cover changes it's hard to keep up.
I am not sure if anyone has done this particular feature so feel free to let me know so I can start linking it up to them. It is similar to other features that are out there but I'm hoping that this is different enough.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

1st Edition               2nd Edition
Usually I know if either are just US covers or are the UK covers but this time I don't know I think these are for both although I'm pretty sure the 1st edition wasn't in the UK stores only online but I'm not 100% sure on this so please let me know if you have any ideas.
When I first saw this book it was the 1st edition cover and I really liked it but it wasn't until I got a copy that made me love the cover as I loved the metallic look of it. I really liked the background as I love the effect of it. I also really liked the font of the title as it ties in with what the title is saying.
Then I saw there was a new cover and I immediately fell in love with, I know there are a lot of people that don't like it but I'm a fan. I love the way the eyelashes look like they were painted but then bleed it looks so effective. I also love the colours around the eye/lashes and the colour of the eye is very piercing.
For me there is no contest the 2nd edition cover is my favourite but the only I do prefer on the other cover is the font of the title as I think it's more eye catching.
Let me know in the comments below your feelings of this cover change.
