Why I chose this book: 
A Thousand Pieces of You was one of my most favorite reads of last year, so when this book came out, I immediately bought it on audible and enjoyed the adventure!

B&N  ||  Amazon  ||  Book Depository

Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents' invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked and his consciousness scattered across multiple dimensions.

Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared. (Goodreads)

Why I Chose This Book:
I won't lie, I was hesitant when I began this book. Perhaps I am the Patron Saint of bad YA science fiction, but lately it seems I've had a bit of a bad luck streak when it came to books in this genre. I've seen "time travel" done again and again in YA, but alternate dimensions? I couldn't resist. Thankfully, I wasn't disappointed! This book was executed perfectly and looks to be a killer beginning to a series of books that I will definitely be reading. 

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Publisher: HarpeTeen 
Publish Date: November 4th, 2014
Format: eARC
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Amazon || Indiebound || B&N 
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. (Goodreads)
