New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

My Rating: 8 *'s

Description: I FELT LIKE I WAS TRAPPED IN ONE OF THOSE TERRIFYING NIGHTMARES...the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can't make your body move fast enough...But this was no dream, and, unlike the nightmare, I wasn't running for my life; I was racing to save something infinitely more precious. My own life meant little to me today.

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning...

My Thoughts: enjoyed the first book in the series more, though this story reveals more details about Jacob and his tribe. Bella & Edward spend a great deal of the book apart so that is probably why I didn't connect to the story as much and Bella comes across as very needy in this book. Besides Jacob and Bella, I wonder if anyone else in Forks know that the Cullens are vampires. The numerous references to Romeo & Juliet started to get a little old too by the end of the story.
