You're a story, but that doesn't make you any less true. My second read for the Fortnight Frights readathon is now complete!! What a spectacular debut from Melissa Albert. I can't believe I've had this book on my shelves for two years. I'm so, so glad it's survived the dozens of unhauls I've done in that time because I absolutely loved this story. That being said, I liked the first half of this novel more than the second, although the second half was good too. The first half
'We're from where we're from,' she says back. 'Scars are part of the deal, aren't they?' Now this was something different. This is my first read for the Fortnight Frights readathon, and I really enjoyed it! Well... enjoy might be the wrong word based on what goes on lol.

This dastardly little thing. This is the perfect October read for anyone looking for something easy, yet unnerving. Was this book all that terrifying? No, not at all.

So... yes it did take me nearly a month to read this massive book. Dune is a brick of a book, but it's definitely a brick full of meaningful ideas. I really enjoyed the first two parts of this book, but I found the third to be a lot harder to get through.
