Only negative aspect-I felt like the Jacob character was being forced into Bella's life more than necessary. There were some decisions that Bella made in this book that I had really hard time getting behind. ( )

Definitely my best of the series but it dragged in some parts (yikes)
Generally though, this one felt more real to me and it was thicker too so yay.
Three stars and not four because I still don't think I'd like it now and a major factor in books for me is timelessness and this didn't have that. ( )

If I thought that this Saga couldn't get better than New Moon, I was wrong. This book took the Vampire world of Twilight, and the La Push world from New Moon, and weaved them together perfectly. I loved the way Bella was being tossed around having to choose between these two wonderful families, and the way her 'Supernatural creatures' clashed over her. Jacob was heartbreaking, but you couldn't stay mad at Edward, and of course Alice and Jasper! Beautiful book all around. ( )

I'm honestly not joking when I say that I'm Team Mike Newton all the way. He's better than either option in every regard. 1) He's there for you as a friend even when things get tough (unlike Edward and Jacob). 2) He's willing to put aside his wants when it's obvious that you do not feel the same way, and therefore keeps his friendships without making things weird, all without manipulating you into feeling bad that you don't like him romantically and threatening suicide if you don't make out with him (unlike Jacob). 3) He's mortal and normal and won't bring any kind of danger onto you, and also isn't too old or too young (unlike Edward and Jacob). Basically, there's nothing wrong with Mike Newton. He's the only normal option but Bella doesn't consider him for some reason.

Besides all that, this book dragged. I was at the 50% mark hoping I was about to reach the climax. Most of that was because Jacob is the devil and Bella is too deluded to see that, but also because the order of events was so illogical and hard to follow that my suspended disbelief was precariously hanging over the ground, threatening to fall at any moment. I'm glad the movies changed stuff, keeping all the vital plot points but simplifying and correcting the random confusing crap, while also maintaining the fun ridiculousness without destroying all possible believability.

I did shed a tear during Rosalie's tale, though. ( )

I liked this book. It isn't my fav in the series, but it was a nice conflict between Jacob and Edward. There was alot of action and it was nicely written ( )

Ask any high school girl: boys can be a pain. Fall for one who seems appealing, and he turns out to be a monster. One moment he acts like you don’t exist, the next, he drives you crazy by playing it cool — while his brothers circle you with hungry eyes. If you take a break to cut the tension, and hang out “just friends”-style with a younger guy who’s puppy-dogging you, what happens? Wouldn’t you know, he turns out to be a nightmare too.

Epigraph
Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.


- Robert Frost
Dedication
To my husband, Pancho,
for your patience, love, friendship, humor,
and willingness to eat out.

And also to my children, Gabe, Seth, and Eli,
for letting me experience the kind of love
that people freely die for.
