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.
LEGIONS OF READERS ARE HUNGRY FOR MORE. GIVE IN TO TEMPTATION…
Well, if you’re reading this, you probably know my blog/reviews, and wondering why I don’t have the quotes to break up the review like I normally do (totally didn’t mean for that to rhyme).
Anyway, the answer to that is that I was looking at quotes and they were all just to bad/laughable/tragic to post.
I guess that leads well into writing my review…
So, I have never read this before, it isn’t a reread (I know, shocker), but I have of course seen all the movies about 1000 times.
Bella is the most annoying, tragic, whiney character I have ever read about in my life. Now I actually thank Kristen Stewart for toughening Bella up a little, geez.
Majority of the book was Bella talking about all the ways she’d rather die than be without Edward, and how horrible her life is without him, blah blah blah.
Then it was all about her leading Jacob on, and then coming back to say “wait no jake! I can’t go on without you, because I’m selfish and filling my Edward shaped hole with you, even though I’ll never love you like that!”
At the start I for sure thought this was going to be a 2 star read, but it did get better and more interesting (Bella’s whiney-ness never went away though).
I really enjoyed reading the little extra parts that weren’t in the movie, and I loved reading more about book-Jacob. I am looking forward to reading Eclipse, and especially Breaking Dawn!
