Disclaimer: These are all my personal opinions and therefore my own. They are not meant to hurt feelings, it’s just how I felt about the novel. It’s fine if you disagree, that’s why we have opinions.
First things first, let’s talk about the cover. It is by far one of the best book covers I’ve ever seen and one of the main reasons I decided to pick it up. Now I know why the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is so popular, it goes both ways.
The contents of A Thousand Pieces of You were incredibly disappointing. I went into this novel expecting action and adventure, instead I got a romance I never asked for. The writing style wasn’t anything spectacular (I hated the constant commencement of sentences with “Probably he…”) and I couldn’t make much connection to the heroine. I felt like she was putting herself into a mindset of dependence on the people around her, rather than taking charge and thinking clearly enough to see what was actually going on. I felt like the plot and events were predictable to a point where the first hundred pages were unnecessary. But one of my biggest pet peeves about the novel is the fact that the blurb on the back was literally the first page, what was the point of that?
All in all, I did not enjoy A Thousand Pieces of You despite its gorgeous cover. If you’re someone who loves romance with added elements of world building, then this might be for you. It just wasn’t for me.
