New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Genre: Paranormal, Young Adult

Format: EBook

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen are back in the second book of the Twilight saga. Bella and Edward are in love, but Bella finds it very difficult to be in love with a vampire. To protect Bella from his family and himself, the Cullens leave town and Bella is devastated. She befriends Jacob Black and they form a relationship of their own. Little does Bella know that Jacob has some huge secrets of his own.

Although Bella enjoys Jacob’s company, she can’t help but miss Edward and she’d give anything to have him back in her life. Bella finds herself in the midst of one problem after another – from werewolves, to a vengeful vampire enemy, to a group of vampires ready to kill her. The only one who can help her is Edward, but can he even help himself?

This is an adventure and thrill on each page. I enjoyed it, but I can’t say that I’m caught up in the whole Twilight thing as so many others are. I’ll read the rest of the series, but there are other books I’d rather read first.

  1. I understand where you are coming from, Yvonne. I really don't understand this obsession everyone has for YA and PR books. I did finally give in to the pressure and read the Twilight series. This book was my favorite of the four.....

  2. Same with me, I did read them all, but I never got the whole hype thing

  3. I think the hype of the books made my expectations of it even higher. Don't get me wrong - I liked the book enough, just not one of my "books of the year" which the hype was making me think.

  4. Great review, I enjoyed this series, but the first one was my favorite.

  5. I enjoyed this series while I read it but it wasn't without its flaws (and lots of them). I never knock a book or books that get people reading who otherwise haven't been big readers. And for that reason, I give the series the credit its due. Many of those new readers have now moved onto other, better books. We all need a starting point, after all.

    Anyhow, New Moon seemed an awful lot like Twilight to me, just with a different male lead. My favorite in the series is Eclipse--probably because there was a bit more action in it.

    I'm reading the Hunger Games trilogy right now which has also gotten a lot of hype. I'm enjoying it much more than I did Twilight--and the writing is better.

  6. I've heard alot about the Hunger Games series and that sounds like a really good one, too.
