Alexa S. - Though it started off a little slow for me, I really wound up loving A Thousand Pieces of You. I enjoyed seeing how the story unfolded, and found myself surprised by a few things (even though I’d guessed at a couple)! I loved seeing them travel into different universes, loved seeing the relationship dynamics laid out and just really, really enjoyed the wild ride Gray took readers on.

Brianna - Sometimes I feel like I live in a parallel universe. But really, A Thousand Pieces of You sounds good.

Annette - Great review. I was really intrigued by this one. Especially the parallel universe plot. I found it to be pretty unique, which is always a good thing.

Alexa Y. - I’m so glad that you liked this one! I did too. It was totally mind-blowing and addictive, and I’m still not quite over it. I love how the story felt well fleshed out, and was more than just its sci-fi aspect. I also fell in love with the characters, my favorite being Finn!

August 27, 2013 - 8:49 am

Jamie - I only skimmed this review bc I am going to read this soon but I have to say I’m so excited to see you liking this one because I know this is not your typical sort of read!!

August 23, 2013 - 4:29 pm

Jess - I wish I’d had a book buddy when I read this I had (have) so many questions ! Either way I devoured this book in two days ! It was a great book.

Bookworm1858 - What-this involves alternating between the past and the present? How did I miss that originally? I now really want to give this a try and am bummed I missed out on reading an early copy because I just wasn’t feeling the cover or title.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Great review! I really liked this, I had some issues with it, but I was really pleasantly surprised with how believable I found the story to be and I was very impressed with Cristin Terrill’s story telling ability. I’m excited to read more from her.

August 22, 2013 - 2:06 pm

Sara (of The Page Sage) - I was hesitant about this one just because it didn’t sound like my kind of book, but the fact that it sounds so mindblowing makes me want to read it so badly!! The two timelines aspect sounds awesome, as well.

August 22, 2013 - 11:42 am

Judith - I’m both so glad that you loved this one and so sad that I didn’t. I still liked it, thank goodness, but overall, I guess I just wasn’t invested enough to be mind blown by the plot twists. I do really think time travel is such an interesting concept to read about, and I definitely have to check out that Stephen King novel!

elena - unfort i’m one of those IF I DID THIS MY LIFE WOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER people even though i wish i was like ~NO REGRETS, YOLO~~~ kind of people. everyone loves this book so i hope i love it too. fingers x’d!

VeganYANerds - I’ve never heard of this until now but it sounds really interesting, thanks to your review (I’m sure if I read the blurb I might not have thought so!)

It sounds like there’s a lot going on but you sold me when you mentioned the chemistry!

July 16, 2012 - 8:33 pm

Mary @ mysistersbookshelf - So this fits so well with lots of things I’ve been reading lately! I recommended Juliet by Anne Fortier (do you know that? if you liked this you might like it!) and then I did not love When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serles. And I was somewhere in the middle on Ruby Red (yay time travel). In other words, this book looks like a perfect storm for me 🙂

July 16, 2012 - 3:57 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Aaaah, a Shakespeare book! Seriously, I’m a sucker for anything that involves Shakespeare or takes inspiration from Shakespeare so I *might* check out this book – if I have the time to. It sounds pretty interesting, and the religion bit doesn’t bother me as much (although that may change if I read it!). Great review!

July 16, 2012 - 3:27 pm

Kailia @ Reading the Best of the Best - Great review. I’m not sure I’ll be picking this up; though it sounds like my cup of tea, I’m just not sure about this one! Glad to know it wasn’t all that bad. Hahaha, yeah, I remember Anne Hathaway.

elena - YES I DO REMEMBER ANNE HATHAWAY! Especially since she was like, his younger cousin?! I don’t think this book sounds like my cup of tea (esp the virginity thing and religious aspects) BUT the chemistry is promising. Fantastic review, Estelle! x

Pam Mingle - Hi Estelle,

Thanks for your thoughtful review of Kissing Shakespeare. I appreciate that you took the time to understand the various aspects of the book!

Great blog, BTW. Mine has been sadly neglected lately!

July 16, 2012 - 10:57 am

Tara - This TOTALLY sounds like an Estelle book! I’m glad to hear that even though it starts out slow, it picks up and some hot chemistry is involved. You have me sold 🙂
