Top Ten of 2014: A Week of Looking Back is a year-end meme hosted by Jamie @ Two Chicks On Books, Rachel @ Fiktshun, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader

It’s Week #2 and we’re featuring the Best Book Covers of 2014. I guess I’m the type of reader who looks at the book cover and then immediately switches to the back cover to look at the blurb and then goes back to appreciate the book cover again. I seldom depend on the book covers to decide which books I read but I do appreciate a lovely cover.

A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU by Claudia Gray. Easily one of the best this year. I love the duality of the image, the colors, and how it just echoes the theme of the story. (My review)

BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE by Maggie Stiefvater. Granted, I’m only at Book 2, The Dream Thieves, but I love this cover already. It’s whimsical, colorful, and a bit magical. Don’t you think so too?

ORPHAN BLACK meets CLOUD ATLAS in the first book of this epic dimension–bending trilogy 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. To accomplish her goal, she must learn how each world works, and confront the many people she has the capacity to become. 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 the truth is elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.

Praise for the Firebird series

“With on the edge of your seat mystery and suspense, this thrilling adventure will keep you guessing until the end.”
— # 1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU by Claudia Gray

Release Date: November 4, 2014

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

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.
