The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

December 19, 2009

So I was writing a review for New Moon for my school blog, and it turned into something a lot longer…

Synopsis (of New Moon):

The ever-popular sequel to Twilight, New Moon, has been constantly praised by “Twilighters” while being bashed by, basically, everyone else. This is the new hype, if you will, of glittering vampires and the fragile human who just wants to be like them. New Moon takes place only mere days before Bella’s 18th birthday, which she truly does not want to celebrate. Why, you ask? It will make her, officially, one year older than Edward.

Teens’ Top Ten Nominee for 2008: Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

August 4, 2008

Eclipse is the third installment in the vastly popular vampire love saga that began with Twilight. At the end of book two, New Moon, we leave the klutzy human Bella Swan and the “vegetarian” vampire Edward Cullen thrilled to be reunited after a turbulent point in their relationship. As graduation looms in the near future, they spend every possible moment together — when Bella is not hanging out in La Push with her werewolf friends, that is. Her attempts to reconcile her two lives, as friend and lover, and the seemingly random killings in Seattle all culminate in a battle for everyone’s lives. On top of all this, Bella has a decision to make: mortality or immortality?

Eclipse is a nominee for the 2008 Teens’ Top Ten. To read more about the Teens’ Top Ten program, click here. To request this book from the library, click here. And don’t forget to place your vote during Teen Read Week, October 12-18, 2008.
