Hey guys how is everyone today? The shelf control meme was created by Lisa over at Bookshelf Fantasies, and I am really enjoying participating in it. Shelf control gives us an opportunity to talk about all of the books that we have had on our shelves for a long time and don’t get enough chance to talk about. So lets get onto the book that I picked for this week;
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite’s father is murdered, and the killer—her parent’s handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.
Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul’s guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is far more sinister than she expected.
When Did I Buy This Book?
I bought this book back when it came out at the end of 2014. This book was in one of my local book stores and I couldn’t resist buying it which you will find out why in the next section 😀
Why Did I Buy It?
I have read some of Caudia Gray’s other books and enjoyed them and that is usually one of the main reasons that I choose to pick something up. The synopsis of this book sounds really cool, I mean really, murder, revenge and parallel universes!? it sounds really exciting. However my main reason for picking up this book was the cover, it is absolutely gorgeous!
Why Haven’t I Read It Yet?
After buying this book there were some pretty average and negative reviews for it and that did kind of put me off reading it for now, but I will definitely be reading it some time in the near future. I also have bought all of the trilogy now so I can marathon the series whenever it is that I start it.
Have any of you guys read these books? If so tell me what you think about them because I would really love some more opinions on this series.
Thank you for reading!
