A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3) by Claudia Gray

Yes, I’m still currently reading this one. I had to put it aside for a few days last week so I could finish up the book for my book club meeting. But I will say that I’m absolutely loving it! This last one has really upped the stakes and I am SO obsessed.

A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.

The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.

Paul Markov has always been at Marguerite’s side, but Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man—angry and shadowed by tragedy. He struggles to overcome the damage done to him, but despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.

So it’s up to Marguerite alone to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake. The risks have never been higher. And Triad has unleashed its ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite—wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.

In the conclusion to Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed. It’s a battle of the Marguerites…and only one can win.

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

This was the novel that I had to read for my book club. In all honesty, this just was not a very good novel. There’s a reason that this story wasn’t published when Lee first wrote it and it should have just stayed that way. If you’re looking for some literary fiction and have heard good things about Harper Lee’s books, just stick with To Kill a Mockingbird. Trust me on this.

From Harper Lee comes a landmark new novel set two decades after her beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird. Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch–“Scout”–returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in a painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past–a journey that can be guided only by one’s conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor and effortless precision–a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context and new meaning to an American classic.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2) by Victoria Aveyard
  • King’s Cage (Red Queen, #3) by Victoria Aveyard

Still continuing on with my Smashing Series for this month by catching up on the Red Queen series. I’ve heard fairly mixed things about the rest of the books in the series, but I still plan to finish it. One of my biggest issues is quitting series in the middle. Unless the first book is just awful, I will always complete a series. Call me a glutton for punishment that way. I’m sick, I know!

  1. I totally agree with what you say On to Kill a Watchman. I really liked the premise of the novel, but the writing style and the way in which each event seemed to follow the next so linearly and without much suspense kinda disappointed me. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird, so when I heard that Lee’s next book was FINALLY being published I was so excited and was expecting so much, but like you say, there’s a reason why it wasn’t published during Lee’s lifetime.
    Great Post! I look forward to reading more from you soon!
    Happy Reading 🙂
