the message of this book: if your boyfriend dumps you curl into a catatonic ball and wish you were dead for 400 pages. then weep for joy and cling obsessively to said boyfriend when you get back together. And mention how his icy chest feels like marble in every other sentence. so bad.

I have been told by COUNTLESS people that you either LOVE New Moon or you LOVE Eclipse (book 3), but you can't love both. I disagree. I loved all 3 books in this series so far. I will admit though--and perhaps warn others--- I cried more reading New Moon than I have ever cried while reading a book.

I don't want to give away anything for those who haven't read New Moon yet so I won't go into details about what's tear-jerking or why some people might be disappointed. I will just say that I read New Moon in one sitting, just like I did Twilight.

The writing in this book is just as vivid and descriptive as in Twilight and the scenes created are unlike any other I have ever read.

This series is just amazing and I can't come up with words that can describe just how great I think they are.

For the adults out there, don't look past this series just because you think it'd be childish since its techincally a YA series. These books are for everyone. Even if you don't like vampires or supernatural, I promise, these books will touch you.

Boring! I thought if I kept reading it might get better but it doesn't. This teenager is a most annoying person, wishy washy. It is just so much 'thinking' all the time that is about what most of the book is about-what she is 'thinking'. Doubt if I read the other two books.

Okay. You caught me. I'm obsessed. Happy? This book did it. My loving wonderful husband ran out in a cold snap to get me the 3rd book because I found out I didn't have the 3rd one.

Okay, so this book was really good... I wish I could explain why I'm obsessed with these books. I'm usually not into this type of book much less ones that are so "over hyped", but these are great mindless easy reading fiction.

Well worth a read, great for an airplane, even better for a comfy chair and a warm cocoa.

The overall story was good, but I'm really surprised at how annoying I can sometimes find Bella and Edward yet still love the book. Edward is 5 times her age and is sometimes more immature (the whole guilt thing) than Bella.

The werewolves in this are pretty cool, even though sometimes annoying.

I found this a great read, though, even with some of the eye rolling I had to do over things that happen in it.

I started reading this series because my little sis and cousin said it was a "just have to they're great" series of books. I wasn't disappointed. This and the first were definitely better then the movies. Plan on moving on to the third to see how it goes.

The parallel with Romeo and Juliet was amusing. Jacob was a fun character, and the background of the tribal wolf powers was quite interesting. It is a strange but somehow believable dichotomy that Bella is such a pathetic mess when Edward leaves her, yet turns to extreme sports to try to keep him around in her head. Too bad they didn't have a psychiatrist on the vampire staff as well as an M.D., LOL!

The most comical moment in the book is when Bella gets a tiny paper cut and Jasper goes crazy with hunger. Yet this guy spends most of his time in a high school, where of course no one EVER gets hurt (insert industrial strength eye roll here)....


I didn't like this one as well as the first or third, but if you are reading them in series you really can't skip this one, because you'll want the story of the Quilleute.
