New Moon by Stephanie Meyer
I finished New Moon within 24 hours. It was a great sequel to Twilight! I was a little nervous at first that Edward was not going to be in the book as from near the beginning, it becomes about Bella's friendship with Jacob and that whole thing. Instead of waiting to find out, I "peaked" ahead... no spoilers, but let's just say I was relieved.
Anyway, this sequel focuses on the werewolves that are located around Forks. It is a good read and has all the emotion that we come to expect from this saga. I do love the stories, but have to say that I don't think Meyer is the greatest writer in history. Her writing is a little too clinical and not as flowy/showy as I'd like.
But, I will not fault her as these are excellent stories and I look forward to reading Eclipse.
I would also like to talk about the plans for the New Moon movie- I will do so in a future blog. And in terms of this whole Team Edward/Team Jacob thing, I don't get it. How could anyone be on Team Jacob? He's a nice guy and all, but Bella loves Edward, so Team Jacob should prepare themselves for a world of hurt! LOL.
I definitely recommend this book!
