A Thousand Pieces of You

Add on Goodreads!

Purchase on Barnes & Noble and Amazon!

Synopsis: 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.

Our Thoughts: The cover is GORGEOUS and we are TOTAL suckers for a beautiful cover that offers mystery. Although, we are not super huge fans of parallel universes or time jumping and the like, A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU just sounds soooo goood we just can't stay away from it! I mean there's murder, betrayal, secrets, a possible romance. Colored us VERY intrigued *wink* *hehe*

Synopsis: 730. That's how many days I've been trapped.

JIN hides under the radar, afraid the wild street gangs will discover her biggest secret: Jin passes as a boy to stay safe. Still, every chance she gets, she searches for her lost sister....

MEI YEE has been trapped in a brothel for the past two years, dreaming of getting out while watching the girls who try fail one by one. She's about to give up, when one day she sees an unexpected face at her window.....

In this innovative and adrenaline-fueled novel, they all come together in a desperate attempt to escape a lawless labyrinth before the clock runs out.

Our Thoughts: THE WALLED CITY just sounds sinister and dark and twisty and dangerous--all elements we thoroughly enjoy in books! We are HUGE fans of dark fiction and were instantly hooked in by the first line of the synopsis. We want to know more about the characters, especially the girl who hides herself as a boy, and how they each connect to one another. It's a book we already can't stop thinking about and CANNOT wait to get our hands on!

Original Air date: 10/20/2014

“If this is your idea of a joke, I can assure you, I am not amused.” ~Elijah

Short Wrap Up: HOLY SWEETCAKES NERDS!! THIS episode was so much about SECRETS! Esther, the mom from hell, wants a reunion with her boys Elijah and Klaus because she has a very powerful offer. The Mikaelson boys aren’t exactly trusting of their wicked witch of a mother so they scheme to find a witch for a spell that helps them keep track of when Esther jumps bodies. Klaus also learns a VERY life changing secret his mother had never told him about which explains SO MUCH of how Klaus turned into a rageaholic vampire! #AlltheFeels Finn reveals himself to his younger brothers, not that Klaus cares too much; he still finds ways to insult big brother, and Esther makes an offer to Hayley she almost gives into. Marcel is building his vampire coven and Elijah finally agrees to become Gia’s mentor.

Favorite Klaus Quotes

“Well, I doubt her guard will drop just because I’m dressed like a bloody lawyer.”

“Just know, if she tries anything, I will tear her new body to pieces.”

“Well, it was a challenge to find a good pairing. What wine goes well with treachery?”
“Why would she want Hayley? (Elijah)
‘To kill her, to punish us, to learn the truth about the child, for one of any number of reasons. All which will be rendered moot when I send her screaming back to hell.”

“You hide behind your spell like a coward.”

"You rant, and you rage about the monster I’ve become, but you, Mother, are the author of everything I am.”

Synopsis: Every touch has its price.

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay.
