A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray – Retail Value $9.99 (On Amazon for $9.19)

Book Summary from Amazon:

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.

Verdict: I like that The Book Drop has started to include some extras with each box – it helps add to the value. This book is something I probably wouldn’t pick out for myself, but that’s why I like these book subscriptions, so I’m going to give it a try!

  1. Since this book came out last year I’m kind of questioning its placement in this box. It’s a solid 4/5, but it makes me wonder if it was picked *because* there’s a sequel out and theoretically a third in the year.
