SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:

I FELT LIKE I WAS TRAPPED IN ONE OF THOSE TERRIFYING NIGHTMARES…

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. . . .


Legions of readers entranced by the New York Times bestseller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural spin. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

MY REVIEW:

This is the second book in The Twilight Saga.

I would have given this book a higher rating except for two things:

Firstly, I thought Bella’s behaviour was totally pathetic when she was without Edward...not a good role model for young, impressionable teens.

Secondly, I missed Edward! His presence is featured only in the beginning and ending of the book, and the middle of the book is filled with Bella’s lamenting for Edward and her relationship with Jacob.

I quite like Jacob, by the way. At this point, I am on the fence between “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob”. I loved the book, though not quite as much as its predecessor, Twilight. I can’t wait to read the next in the series, Eclipse.

I was pleased that Ilyana Kadushin was the narrator again. I enjoyed listening to her.

MY RATING: 4.25 stars!
