New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Reading Level: Young Adult

Paperback: 563 Pages

Publisher: Little Brown

ISBN-13: 9780316024969

My Rating: 4/5
I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect-not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.

'New Moon' is the second book in the Twilight Saga. I absolutely fell in love with Twilight when I read it. The day I finished Twilight, I ran out and bought New Moon. What can I say, I was addicted! lol. I loved New Moon at first...and I probably would have given it a 5/5 when I first read it. Now that I've had some time to let it sink in and really think about, and reread it. Not so much. The Twilight Saga is important to me because it rekindled my love for reading. But I didn't like New Moon nearly as much.

New Moon is the continuing story of Bella Swan. In a nutshell, it's Bella facing some unimaginable situation and fighting with her conflicting feelings for Edward and Jacob, her getting hurt, being clumsy, etc...While New Moon is still a great book, it's nowhere near as good as Twilight. I felt like New Moon was slow paced compared to Twilight. There wasn't much going on. You get to meet the wolf pack but that's about it. For me anyways. And I liked the whole thing with the Volturi. But there were a lot of parts when I was like, "that's it?"

The Twilight Saga is great! and I love it. But I think I only love it because it got me back into reading. And the whole forbidden love aspect. haha. Twilight is WAY better than New Moon. Hopefully I'll be able to write my review for Eclipse soon. And then Breaking Dawn. I have to say, I think a lot of people HATE Twilight because it's so popular...or it was? I think that, they got this opinion in their minds before they even read it. About how stupid it was going to be and it affected their "Twilight experience." It really isn't that bad!
