Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

I never thought anything in the series would get better than Twilight. But I think this may have. I enjoyed Twilight for it's take on first love. New Moon was ok, necessary to the story but a little depressing for my taste, still better than a lot of other junk I've read. It had it's good moments (I couldn't put it down). And Eclipse wow, it brought back the story with all the power it could. I really really liked it. It took all the great elements from the first two books and added something I was crossing my fingers and toes for: more history about the characters! And now I can't wait for Breaking Dawn! You still have time to read the first three books in the series before Breaking Dawn comes out August 2nd. I suggest you start now!

Reading this series reminded me how very much I love series. They allow you to arrive in a much more complex and detailed world because each book just builds and builds the story. What's your favorite series?

5/5 Stars

  1. One of my favorite series of all time is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Have you read any of her work?

    J. Kaye- Yay! I can't wait either! Have you heard about that anthology, A New Dawn, all about what writers think of the series, etc. I'm going to start that hopefully tonight!

  6. Naida- you should look into A New Dawn edited by Ellen Hopkins. It's a bunch of essays about Twilight. I just finished it this morning :)

  7. I liked reading this book too more than New Moon! At least Edward came back so there's more adventure in it. I enjoyed reading the conversations between Edward and Jacob.

    Rosalie's and Jasper's stories were great too. I'd like to know more about the Cullen family. They seem so mysterious!

    Here is my review of Eclipse.
