Monday Reviews - A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing a book I read a few days ago, A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. 

Here is the synopsis:

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.


Okay, before we talk about the book itself, can we just have a minute to gush over that cover? Wow! The picture truly doesn't do it justice! It is stunning in person!

I know there is a lot of hype surrounding this book. And that made me a little nervous going into it. But overall, I really enjoyed it! I loved all the twists and turns, and even though I kind of figured out who was behind everything early on, it was so much more complex than I thought.

I also loved that it doesn't set itself up for a sequel. Yes, there are lots of unanswered questions but they are more in the background and the character conflicts are wrapped up nicely in the end of this book.

If you do decide to pick this book up, I urge you to try and go into this book without thinking of the hype and that it is going to be this amazing wonderful story, and I think you will be humbly surprised by it. 

Overall, I highly recommend! I gave it a 4 stars on Goodreads, but it is more like 4.5 stars!
