Preview — New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
New Moon (Twilight #2)
I stuck my finger under the edge of the paper and jerked it under the tape. 'Shoot,' I muttered when the paper sliced my finger. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut. It all happened very quickly then. 'No!' Edward roared ... Dazed and disorientated, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm - and into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly raveno...more

Stephen King once said, "Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good."
I couldn't agree more, Stephen. With that, we shall kick this off with a joke:

I was deceived.
It was awful--not as bad as its predecessor, but still pretty bad. Right off the bat Bella is crying about how she hates her birthday and dreads aging and wants little to do with her birthday. This was a annoying to read through because I kept thinking to myself, "What teenage girl th ...more
When she was 12 me and my daughter Georgia went to see Twilight. After the movie I asked her what she thought.
"THAT WAS THE BEST MOVIE EVER" she said. And she went to see it three more times, with people other than me.
So she bought the book and read it in about four hours. I asked her what she thought.
"THAT WAS THE BEST BOOK EVER" she said.
Then we got the dvd of the movie and she watched it again.
"THAT WAS THE WORST MOVIE EVER" she said. I was surprised but she explained - "Bella is stupid, Edwa ...more
this twilight craze... the books are not as bad as the haters say they are, but they are also nowhere near as good as lovers of this series believe. this installment was just kind of... bland. despite my reading it on the fine e-ink technology of the new nook.

Earlier this year, I foolishly lent my copy of Twilight to Cate across the road. She liked it. Then, when she got a place at college last month, we thought we'd give her something as a congratulations-and-going-away present. It was so logical to buy a copy of New Moon.
Cate zipped through it quickly, and dropped off her copy before leaving so that I could read it too. How could I possibly say anything except thank you?
Well... look on the bright side. I've heard so muc ...more
Twilight was a grand romance which frequently left me smiling, but New Moon takes on a bittersweet, angst-filled and edgy tone in this continuing dramatic saga of teen love between a vampire and a human. The book gets off to a rather explosive start, but rapidly turns to heavy sorrow when Edward make a fateful decision concerning Bella's safety. Following his decision, Edward is off the canvas for about the next two-thirds of the book, as is the entire Cullen family. Duri ...more

Is this what we're supposed to be teaching our teenage daughters? Sisters? Nieces? Apparently Ms. Meyer believes that:
1. Moping for 4 straight months over a goddamned boy is okay, and you'll make people worried and your friends may stop talking to you, but hey! it's okay, because your love is so strong for this boy and you'll eventually figure yourself out on your own.
2. Becoming another boy's friend solely to use him to make yourself feel better and to ...more
“Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget; it was a hard line to walk.”
This was sad. Edward and Bella are separated without good reasons. He wants to protect her, but now what ? I couldn't stomach the first few chapters of this book, after that it was all bearable for me with Jabob and his attitude. I like his protective instinct of Bella, especially when he cares for her, my heart was melted like ice cream.
“Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were st...more

For those who have previously read my review of Twilight, you will understand and realize I am not the biggest fan of The Twilight Saga.
^^^Sorry I couldn't help myself.^^^
Anyways....let's move on...
Well, that (^) pretty much explains it all.
So what actually did happen in the book?
Jasper attacks Bella, which could have led to her death. Our Eddie freaks out and becomes the world's worst boyfriend, by leaving the girl he loves in the middle ...more
I liked about 80% of this book. Liked as in actually sort of kind of enjoyed it. I mean, yeah, it was still redundant and Bella was still pathetic, but I like Jacob, and I actually liked the werewolf storyline. It's too bad that Bella and Edward aren't broken up for the rest of the series. Or that they aren't, you know, murdered and put out of their own misery. Alas, Edward comes back and INSTANTLY the novel goes from pretty decent to MOTHERFUCKING RIDICULOUS. This w ...more

Why do I intentionally put myself through such dreck?
New Moon is only a slight improvement over Twilight. The book has two things going for it:
First, I had no expectations going in. I already knew it would be a poorly-written romance—and Meyer did not disappoint.
Second, Bella, our heroine, and Edward, her prince, are separated throughout much of the novel. Though many reader ...more
