Sorry I Changed My Mind

I've decided to read Wuthering Heights instead. Sorry if anyone started reading Sense and Sensibility. I've always wanted to read this book and I'm in the mood for something a little darker. Plus in the third book of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse, there's alot of references to this book so I thought I would read it. I've seen one movire version several years ago but it's been enough time that I really don't remember the story. Once agin if anyone feels inclined to read this with me please do. I would love hear other peoples opinions.

#3 Eclipse


Okay, so right off I have to say that my favorite book form this series so far is the first one Twilight. You learn in the second book New Moon that there is a love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob. I hate the love triangle. Edward is so awesome and then when Jacob enters the picture and it's almost as if the author wants to make Edward look bad. Jacob is a whinner, that's fine that he loves Bella but he needs to get over it and move on! The third book is full of this struggle between the two guys with Bella in the middle. And I'm sorry but she's stupid for encouraging Jacob. She knew that he liked her more than she liked him, but she still lets him hold her hand and hug her, well duh, what you think that means for a guy? It's just pathetic. Honestly right now I'm not excited for the fourth and final book to come out. The fact that Jacob has becoe one of the main characters is disgusting. I thought this was a love story between Edward and Bella?

#2 in the Twilight Saga

So this is number 2 in the Twilight Saga and I had to wait an entire week for this book to come. I ordered it because it was way cheaper than buying at B & N. I breezed through this book in no time at all. The first book took 28 hours (I think) for me to get through and this one took about the same time. I've read these books way faster than Harry Potter which I didn't think was possible.
The second book New Moon is pretty good although one of the main characters is absent for most of the book which is unfortunate. These stories are captivating. The author has said herself that her writing isn't the best she's more of a storyteller and I would agree. While she won't get any awards for the actual gramatics of her books she makes up for that by the great love story that she has created. If only I could come up with something this fascinating . . .

MUST READ!!

I read this book in two days! Does that tell you anything? The book has 500 pages but I breezed right through it. I have to admit that yesterday was a bit tough as I tried to read the book and take care of Lincoln. Poor Lincoln I think he was a bit neglected. I stole any minute I could get because I was hooked and couldn't put it down. I was a bit skeptical going in but boy was I wrong. There are some pretty cheesy parts but it's cute and the love story is great just because it's one that shouldn't work.

Yesterday I was describing this book to my husband (he won't ever read it) and I was just amazed at how well it flowed and worked. The Time magazine article talked about how there's no sex in the book but there are very sexual scenes and I couldn't agree more. There is soooo much tension between the two main characters that you just keep reading to find out what happens. Do they touch? Do they kiss? Does Edward the vampire try to kill her? I mean it's just nail biting! Anyway I've ordered the rest of the books in the series and I can't wait until they get here! Please go out and get yourself a copy I promise you won't be disappointed. Oh and I give this book 4 thumbs up!
