Book Review ft Fatina | A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Hello gais, have a nice day of course, so this is my first collaboration blog post and of course its gonna be about books. Hehe, remember that book I’ve been underestimated? I mentioned it here, and turn out that unlucky book was A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray.
Publisher : Harper Teen | Author : Claudia Gray | English | 360 Pages | Goodreads | Genre : Sci fi, Romance, Young Adult
After read this book im actually fall in love with her writing style and how she deliver the story, but im kinda bored reviewing books alone. So today im inviting my blog blogger friends forever (bbff) Fatina along to do the book review thingy since she have a very clear perspective towards a book and also she read the same book on the same time with me.
Frankly, how this post gonna be I’ll interview her opinion regarding the book and of course we are gonna fangirling about it together. Hehe.
Fatina is a well known book blogger among us, she love cats, have a keen lifestyle writing and also a fangirl of ACOMAF just like me. She blogs on Fatina Mdzfr.

Here’s from Fatina herself,

  1. Why you pickup the book on the first place? Are you familiar with the author? 

I just picked this book out of curiosity as to know what is this all about and yeah, I know nothing about it as I did not read the review before picking this up and I am not familiar with this author but it seems that, she is my favourite author now!

  1. How well do you like the story plot?

The story plot is all on point and it’s wonderful! It flows perfectly that I’m itching to get to know what happens next, what made it all this happen, who is behind all of this. Goodness, the plot line is all makes me as a reader keep on wanting to know more. Claudia Gray definitely makes this beyond amazing!

  1. What are the strength/weakness of the main character that you would like to point out?

I’m going to point Marguerite’s weakness, which is when she couldn’t even decide which Paul she in love with. (err, is this even consider as weakness?)

Well, anyways that’s what I figure but one thing I really like about her – her strength, I mean, she has a strong character know what she wants, which she is super freaking stubborn in a good way to make everything completely working out as what she wants it to be.

  1. Since love triangle exist in this book, so #teamPaul or #teamTheo? And whyyyy? *fangirl mode activate*

Aha! I really love this question! It’s time to fangirl together on this matter! Hehe Anyways, I am on #teamPaul! I don’t know why I love Paul more than Theo, maybe because his quietness has make him into a charming guy, seeing him doing everything for Marguerite and her family really makes my heart melt. Can I have him in real life, please?

As for Theo, well he is a good guy; protect her but because there are two version of him, so that makes a bit odd since there’s not so much of interaction between the real Theo and Marguerite.

  1. If you possess the Firebird, describe your most anticipate dimension that you’ll visit for. 

Aha! Another question that I love! If I am get to have the Firebird, I would like to visit the future me because I want to see how the future looks like, is it I’m going to be in the same family again? Am I going to be the way I am, right now? The most important thing is that I would like to see how our planet looks like in the future and how the technology has move beyond advance what we have right now.

I’m hoping it to be like what and how it happen in the beginning of the chapter where London takes place in the future with the hologram technology and more.

Notes for readers : Firebird is a tools that will make you jump to another dimension of yourself, puff, mind blowing, how cool is that? – Eyqa

  1. Your rating and will you recommend this book to the reader?

5 out of 5 star because it is awesome! Mind-blowing! My goodness, no words could describe how amazing this book is and definitely, I will recommend to this every one, by saying that I’m going to influence everyone to read this! Hehe 😀

  1. Rolling up your review about the book. 😀

I won’t review it long here, so don’t worry. I will make it short but in a convincing way (I’ll try, somehow ;p).

Anyways, this books contains a lot of amazing things beyond your mundane mind would ever think of. Every dimension all the characters been to is just incredibly beyond our imagination, it feels like it’s hard to grasp even a minute when they change one after another dimension they visit to and you will keep on wondering what/how it actually feels to be in their shoes. Would it be great to see you, you in that dimension? Would you like it? Those questions will pop up on your mind along the way with curiosity what will happen next. It also includes the plot twist it has in there and all the lively characters and family relationship is just what I love more about this book. That’s makes this book works wonderful!

Anyway, thank you Eyqa for doing this amazing interview!

  • Terima kasih @imanpublication providing me a free copy in exchange with a honest review. Belum habis baca sebenarnya tapi nak post dulu lah teaser. 😋

Dah baca 180 pages and I love it! Okay sy cuba berlaku adil dengan buku-buku yg sy pernah bca sebelum ni. But this one, was one of its kind. Susunan ayat, installing the character personalities semuanya menjangkaui telahan yang saya telah fikirkan berkenaan novel-novel melayu 😂.
.
.
.
Daebak! Hanya satu ayat menunjukkan betapa saya kagum akan novel ini. But I need to dig more sebab tak selalu buku melayu membuatkan semangat membaca saya membara 😉. Tahniah penulis atas penulisan setengah novel yang begitu dramatik dan intimate.
  • QOTD : What book make you cringe to do something after reading it?
.
.
.
Last week I've been indulge myself in gaming assuming an assassin role mentioned in #projekathena. The mutual connection between the role both in the book also in ML make me cringe to know what its like to be an assassin. Eventually I fall in love with her. So my next move is climbing up the local rank for that particular heroes 😂. I blame @syeraho for this. .
.
.
Back to this book, its been a tearful journey, it was a long reading but a worthy one. I bet one can finish it in one sit as the words uses is simple and understandable.
.
.
.
Not to mentioned it was my first book from HF. Honestly its hard to rate this kind of book, where islamic lifestyle and fiction were blend together. For my version of rating, I tend to give high rate to the book which has intimate, personal connection to the reader (me), so for that reason I'll give 4⭐. Even after catching a headache resulting from tears streaming last night 😣. .
.
.
This book recommend for a light reading, bedtimes stories also to those who keen to seek assuring words of His Promises. No particular reader, I think its just suit for everyone. Also a nice book to read it Ramadan!
.

The book synopsis gonna be in the comment below :
  • Alhamdulillah done reading a malay science fiction about Projek Athena : Manusia Ciptaan (trans : Athena's Projeck : Human Building). Thank you to @imanpublication for providing me a physical copy of this book in exchange with honest review.
.
.
.
And it was a fun reading towards the end. And syabas @syeraho for your first novel! .
.
.
This book recommend to those who love actions because Syeraho write a beautiful chereofighting, well mostly in words - and that something to praise with!
.
.
.
I'm currently constructing in depth review for this book and will update it soon on Goodreads - read on GR cause  i'm hiding all the spoilers and leave you with all the good parts, lols 😜.
.
.
.
Rating : 3/5 🌠. Sorry there are pro and cons so I'll settle with this first 😉 and also dont judge by my rating cause im just a very stinky person 😅. .
.
.
Setiap buku harus punya awal niatnya yg tersendiri (Eyqa, 2019).
  • QOTD : What book do you bought only because of its cover?
.
.
.
First time encounter buku published by @katapilarbooks ialah masa baca Syif Tengah Malam. Rupanya this is penerbit yg penulis dia dikalangan doktor, misi also yang bertugas di hospital.
.
.
.
One of many reason I like about them is their cover yg lain dari yang lain. Mcm this one.
.
.
.
Jadi izinkan saya post pasal book cover mendahului book review dulu ya. 😂
.
.
.
Okay sekian. Saja nak bagitau cover dia cantik. 😉
  • Big thanks to @prologmed cos hosting a GA for this book last year 💖.

Akhirnya dapat juga habiskan buku ni. Dalam buku ni ada enam cerpen yang bertemakan time travel. Buat yg mendambakan peluang kedua dalam waktu yang terbatas, pembaca diajak untuk menilai semula sekiranya kita bisa merentas masa untuk mengubah sejarah, adakah kita akan lebih bahagia dari sekarang? Or worse? Or dlm erti kata lain kena baca dlu buku ni baru tahu 😂.
.
.
.
Dalam enam cerpen aku paling terkesan dengan yang ada love story with bit of plot twist. Yang ada karakter yang kuat dan background cerita yang baik. Sometimes rasa geram but another time rasa bahagia tgk kebahagiaan character biarpun fiksi semata.Tak nak bagi spoiler jadi ckp secara am sejalah yer.
.
.
.
Overall it was a good book. Kalau fans tentang Hermione with Time Turner, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child boleh lah try baca buku ni, setiap kisah ada teladan masing-masing. Yang tak akan dapat dinilai melainkan dengan cara membacanya sendiri. Hahh suspen takk? .
.
.
⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 cause I want more. The book alone tak cukup 😂.
  • Saya tidak selalu reviu buku-buku agama kerana semuanya sangat membantu dalam meningkatkan pemahaman kepada AQ dan AS.
.
.
.
Buku ni lebih ringkas dan praktikal dalam memahami apa sebenarnya rezeki. Penulis membuat pilihan cerita yang tepat dalam merungkai makna yang tersirat, bahawa rezeki tidak hanya dtg dalam bentuk wang ringgit. Satu bacaan yg berharga dalam meningkatkan amal bersedekah dan menolong insan yg memerlukan. Bahkan juga dalam menolong diri sendiri yang kesempitan.
.
.
.
Ramai manusia ingin kan kebahagiaan, tapi tak semua akan merasainya dan ramai manusia takut untuk diuji tapi semua akan menghadapinya. Read Al Imran : 142
.
.
.
Ini adalah antara buku yg membantu sy memahami indahnya rezeki. Bahawa di dunia ini, rezeki kita pada akhirnya akan ada dalam tiga bentuk sahaja yakni :
⭐ Makanan yg kita makan
⭐ Pakaian yang kita pakai utk tutup aurat
⭐ Ilmu yg telah kita pelajari dan amalkan
.
.
.
Sempena bulan Ramadhan yg bakal menjelang dengan ini thehundredpages akan lebih membaca buku-buku islamik terbitan tanah air. 😉😁
.
.
.
Semoga melayuku lurus. Amiin.
P/s : oh ya selepas baca al Imran 142, baca balik ayat 139 😉
