Title: A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1)
Author: Claudia Gray
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Fantasy, Sci-fi
Cloud Atlas meets Orphan Black in this epic dimension-bending trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray about a girl who must chase her father’s killer through multiple dimensions.
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.
A Thousand Pieces of You explores an amazingly intricate multi-universe where fate is unavoidable, the truth elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.

Some of my friends told me to read this book. They thought it was very good and that I should definitely read it!
Being the good friend I am, I bought the book. And oh my, was that a good decision!
I loooooooved this book. After finishing Rogue I got into a reading dip and this book definitely got me out of it!
I loved the way the story unfolds, I love the interdimensional travelling. I mean how awesome would it be to go travel to another dimension. Obviously not very cool if you are following the person you think killed your dad. But still cool.
I really liked the characters and the way they all of a personality. I especially loved the Russian version of Paul *swoons*. I mean if I were Marguerite I would have fallen for him as well. I’m not so sure what to think of the ‘normal’ Paul just yet.
I liked Theo as well, although obviously not as much as I loved Paul.
And I really didn’t see that plottwist coming. I mean, Theo (not normal Theo) being a spy for Triad!? I was sitting there, mouth open, wondering how this happened.
After I finished the book I immediately ordered Ten Thousand Skies Above You and I can’t wait ‘till it’s here and I can continue this amazing story!
Which is your favourite version of Paul? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
