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.
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Okay — while practically EVERYTHING about A Thousand Pieces of You demands that I get this book as soon as possible, first, LOOK AT THAT COVER. Such gorgeous colors and a watercolor background to boot. But of course, most importantly, the London and Moscow skylines (!!!)! I love Travel Lit, and I’m hoping that even more foreign places will be featured in this book.
And don’t forget the synopsis.
“Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy…”
Could this get any better? David Leviathan’s Every Day, aka a romance with a Sci-fi twist and Cloud Atlas, a stunning movie set in different places all over the world in different times (Yes, I’ll admit I haven’t read the book) sounds like a recipe for success. I know these book comparisons are made all the time and are not always right, but in the case of A Thousand Pieces of You, I supremely hope it is.
Throw in parallel universes and it’s all over. If this book were available for purchase now, I would have bought it, like, yesterday. Which is the highest form of praise a book can receive from me, as I borrow almost every single book I read from the library. But it won’t be out until November…whyyy??? I need this! (Publishers, take note.)
So if you’re a fan of Sci-fi or Travel Lit like me, you’d better be adding this to your Goodreads shelf or to-be-read list. Or, you know, even if you’re just a fan of the cover. I won’t judge. 😉
