Author: Stephanie Meyer
Copyright date: 2006
Publisher: Little, Brown & co.
How many pages: 563
How long it took me to read: 2 Days, about
Category: Teen fiction/horror & suspense
I learned about this book from: Uhh Twilight lol
This book was purchased at: Borrowed from Molly :)
Other books by this author: Duh lol
Main characters: Bella, Edward, Jacob
Favorite characters: Edward, Alice, Bella, the Cullens
*Least favorite Characters: Ummm Jake after the transformation lol
When and Where the story takes place: Forks, La Push, Italy
*Plot in a nutshell: Bella and Edward break-up, she makes a bff out of Jacob, and we see a return of an old enemy... Oooo intrigue :)
*What I liked best: Though I enjoyed Twilight, "New Moon" was 1000x better than that which came before it. Twilight was very indulgent to me, and had a tendency to drag a bit. "New Moon" added sustenance to the series, made it more than just a love story. Meyers made the pain that Bella went through REAL, whereas stories such as Prozac Nation merely describe what something is like, in "New Moon" you could FEEL it. You could feel your own heart breaking, could feel it slowly begin to mend, and everything in-between. Kudos to Meyer for pulling that off.
What I liked least: Uhhhh....that I'm stuck in such a normal existence and have been wanting what Bella has since before I even knew the series existed lol. But that's on me, not on Meyer.
*What parts could you relate to: Everything minus the stuff that "couldn't really happen"...because to my knowledge, I've never met a vamp or wolfie.
Would this book make a good movie?: God, I hope so.
Quote from the book that sums it up:
Once you cared about a person, it was impossible to be logical about them anymore. --Bella, pg 304.
It was heaven--right smack in the middle of hell. --Bella, pg 491
Overall Rating: I can't even think of a cutesy way of saying it... this book was simply PHENOMENAL.
