The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite’s hands. She’s been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud from the first time she travelled to another universe. Now, Marguerite has learned Triad’s true plans and they could mean the end of hundreds of universes.

Paul has been at Marguerite’s side, but when Triad attacked him they changed him. Now, he’s angry and haunted by tragedy. Paul’s struggling to overcome the damage Triad did to him. And despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.

So it’s up to Marguerite to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake and the risks have never been higher. Triad have unleashed their ultimate weapon – another Marguerite, evil, psychologically twisted and always one step ahead.

I received a copy of A Million Worlds with You from HarperCollins New Zealand toDAYmIy9V0AEZjq6 review. This is the last book in the Firebird trilogy.

I loved the first two books in this trilogy so I was looking forward to finding out how the story would end. Although at the same time I didn’t want it to end. When I first read A Thousand Pieces of You I was completely hooked within the first couple of chapters. I’d read books about time travel before, and I love books about time travel, but I don’t think I’d ever read anything about dimension travel before.

Marguerite goes on another trip through the dimensions in this book. But this time she’s not just trying to save the people she loves. I thought Triad, and what they were doing, was crazy. I mean, yes it’s sad when someone dies but this? Wow. I don’t even know what to say about what they were doing. The first two books had been building up to what Triad were doing and why they were so focused on their endgame.

I didn’t go into A Million Worlds with You with many expectations because I didn’t want to be disappointed. But, I did have one. Well, I didn’t expect it but I really wanted it to happen. I wanted Marguerite and Paul to end up together or in a better place than the were at the start of this book. I don’t believe in the whole destiny/fate thing that Marguerite and Paul did but I really liked them together.

I’ve loved every book in the Firebird trilogy. All three books were full of action, amazingly written worlds (I loved the Russiaverse) and just so addictive. I’ll definitely be reading more of Gray’s books.

*Thank you HarperCollins New Zealand for sending me a copy to review*

May Wrap Up & June TBR.

monthlywrapup

It’s that time of the month again when I do my wrap up of what I read last month and my TBR. I didn’t really stick to my May TBR so it’s probably good I’m not sharing it. Hopefully I’ll do better this month.

I didn’t do too badly in May. I managed to read 11 books. I think my favourite was Finding Nevo.

June TBR

I tried to keep my June TBR small because I didn’t really stick to my TBR last month. I’ve already read Contagion and I’m currently reading One of Us is Lying, which reminding me a lot of Gossip Girl. I think my next read will be The Cows.

What’s on your June TBR? How many books did you read in May? Leave me a comment and let me know.

I started Letters to the Lost yesterday and I’m pretty sure I’ll be finishing it today. I probably would have finished it already if life didn’t get in the way of my reading. But whatever.

This is the second book I’ve read by Brigid and I really enjoyed the other book, Thicker Than Water.

This book follows Juliet and Declan as they write letters to each other. But they don’t know they’re writing it the other person, its anonymous. At least at first it is.

I’m really enjoying this so far and can’t wait to see how it ends.

Recently Finished – DA3e3F_VoAEvka4
I finished Fatal Crossing on the weekend. This follows Nora as she buys a suitcase in an antique shop and finds some photos of girls in there. In one of the photos are two girls who went missing on a ferry in 1985.

This book started very slow for me and I felt like there were some things I didn’t really need to read about. But I’ll talk more about that and the rest of the book in my review.

When I did get into the story I enjoyed it. But it did take me probably half the book to get used to the flashbacks into Nora’s past. DAYmIy9V0AEZjq6

I also finished A Million Worlds with You last week. This is the final book in the Firebird trilogy and I really, really liked all three books.

I’m not going to say much about this book here because I still have to post my review and it’s the last book in the trilogy. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read these books.

I will say that they are about dimension travel and all the worlds that are included in these books were so descriptive. I didn’t want this book to end but I’m glad I finally read it.

Reading Next – 14
I’ve decided to read Contagion by Teri Terry next. I’ve read Teri’s Slated trilogy and Mind Games so I’m looking forward to reading this.

I’m just going by the sentence on the cover but it sounds like there’s some kind of virus, or contagion, that there’s no cure for so I’m expecting a lot of death.

And I do know that Callie, an 11-year-old girl is missing. But that’s all I know. I didn’t want to know too much before I started this.

What have you read lately?

I started reading A Million Worlds with You earlier this week. This is the last book in The Firebird Trilogy.

I’ve really enjoyed the first two books in the trilogy and I am looking forward to seeing how this will end.

I’m not going to say much about A Million Worlds with You because it’s the last book in a trilogy and I’m not going to spoil things for anyone who hasn’t read the first two books.

I will say that this is about dimension travel and that I was hooked within a couple of chapters of A Thousand Pieces of You. I couldn’t put it down.

I haven’t read a lot in the last week. My reading seems to be slowing down again… I just hope it’s not another reading slump.

Anyway, I read Patrick Ness’s new book, Release. It’s not exactly what I was expecting. Although I don’t really know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this. Not that I didn’t like it. It was just a little different..

Release takes place in the space of one day and follows Adam, whose life is about to change, and a ghost who has risen from the lake. Like I said, different. But I did like it. I’ll be reviewing this soon so I don’t want to say too much here.

Reading Next – 16
I haven’t taken a photo of the book I plan to read next but it’s in this pile of books.

I’ll be reading Fatal Crossing by Lone Theils. This follows a journalist, Nora, who discovers a photo of two missing girls in a suitcase. The girls went missing in 1985. Nora is caught up in wanting answers and it leads her to a serial killer who is serving a life sentence. But things are more dangerous than she realises.

I thought this sounded really interesting when I read the synopsis and I like taking a break from reading YA books every now and then.

What have you been reading lately?

Review: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray.

Title – Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Series – The Firebird Trilogy #2
Author – Claudia Gray
How I Got It – I bought it
Pages – 424 pages
Publication Date – November 3rd 2015 by Harper Teen
My Rating – ★★★★/5

Marguerite Caine has done the impossible – she traveled to alternate dimensions with the Firebird – the brilliant invention of her parents, her boyfriend Paul and their friend Theo. But Marguerite caught the attention of people willing to kidnap, blackmail and kill to keep the knowledge of the Firebirds to themselves.

When Paul’s soul is splintered into four pieces – that are trapped inside four different Paul’s in four different worlds. Marguerite is willing to do whatever it takes and travel to any universe to get him back. With the help of their friend Theo, Marguerite travels to save both Paul and the Firebird. To succeed she’ll have to outsmart a genius and risk not only their lives, but also the lives of their other selves in every universe they visit.

Their mission takes them to the most dangerous worlds so far – a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld in New York City and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite is keeping a shocking secret. Each universe brings Marguerite closer to saving Paul but her journey also revels dark truths that have her doubting the one constant she’s found in every world so far – Marguerite and Paul’s love for each other.

This is the second book in the Firebird trilogy. I loved A Thousand Pieces of You when I c1hbm1oukaeiygsread it and I thought I might have to re-read it before I started this but my memory wasn’t too bad this time.

I think this picked a few months after the ending in A Thousand Pieces of You. Marguerite and Paul had been a couple for a few months so that’s what I went on. I don’t think they were together at the end of the first book.

I’m more interested in what’s going to happen with the Firebird and the reason Marguerite has been pulled into this than her and Paul’s relationship. Not that I don’t like them together, I prefer her with Paul than Theo. But I’m just not into the whole “meant to be in every universe” thing that Marguerite and Paul believe. It’s way too cheesy for me.

I love reading about all the different worlds that Marguerite, Paul and Theo travel to. This time it’s Marguerite and Theo doing all the travelling so that they can save Paul. Marguerite learns a lot while she’s travelling, not just about herself and how she treats all the Marguerites she visits but also her relationships with both Paul and Theo.

The twist behind why Wyatt Conley and why he’s doing all these things to harm the Firebird project in multiple worlds was interesting and I did not see that coming at all. And the ending was insane! I really wanted to pick up the last book in the trilogy as soon as I’d finished Ten Thousand Skies Above You but I have so many other books I need to read. But I do plan on reading it soon.

If you haven’t read these books yet then I highly recommend finding copies of them because they have been really good!!
