Much like the last, an interesting tale, appealing characters. I enjoyed it and lost sleep over it (meaning I stayed up way too late reading). A few annoyingly glaring grammatical errors in my opinion, but once I got into the book I didn't seem to notice (or they stopped).

I appreciated the way that the author took Edward out of the story for a bit, though keeping him "present" through plot and other characters. It kept the book from being just 500 pages more of the same.

However, I have to say that Bella's constant whining and the "gaping hole" (metaphoric hole, of course), made me kind of wish the hole would become real...or maybe she would succeed in some of her near death stunts. Maybe Laurant could eat her... Anything to stop the miserable moaning! I pretty much hated Bella in this book. I however, really liked Jacob.

Edit: I enjoyed this one more the second go round as well. Somehow, knowing the story made the constant whining and the "gaping hole" much less bothersome. ( )

I promised my bestie @mycornerforbooksand that I would read this series since I never before have. I purchased this book from Amazon. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 New Moon by Stephanie Meyer Book 2 of Twilight Series. Ok now I get it I have to pick a side in Book 1 I was like oh it's not a choice it's easy I can walk this line and like them both. After Book 2 you really must pick just one. To be honest I am still undecided. Tell me are you #teamedward or #teamjacob. Because I know everyone has read this series but me!

I am so surprised. I liked it. I liked it more than the first in the series. Of course, I may never be able to write in complex sentences again. Nevertheless. I liked it. ( )

There's a new moon! And it's blue!!! Ha ha ha

The first hundred pages of this book made my heart poured gallons of tears that I also became numb. In a melodramatic way, I visualize myself being Bella. And since Stephenie knows how to break your heart through words, it definitely breaks mine. I thought I'm exempted? Though if only you could hear me reading this book in my mind, you'll definitely feel my numbness!!

Okay! Since this book is about the new moon and the hollywood teaches us that at full moon, they will changed into werewolf. So the book tells us about Jacob being a werewolf (Oopps spoiler alert!) ;) So it is more of Bella and Jacob and Jacob and Bella. I LIKED THAT BELLA MADE IT CLEAR THAT SHE FELT NOTHING BUT FRIENDSHIP AND SIBLINGS LOVE TO JACOB. THEN I HATE HER FOR BEING CLINGY. Stop it, will you?

I'm a bit disappointed with the Volturi I'm not scared, and we are ought to be scared but I don't feel anything. Because Aro is exhilarating that it makes me want to snap his head so I can be the perfect and cruel royal vampire. I'm looking forward for Marcus though and Victoria!! She is so slow that I want her dead like right now.

Verdict is 4.6 but I rounded it up! ( )

Less streamlined than Twilight yet just as exciting, New Moon will more than feed the bloodthirsty hankerings of fans of the first volume and leave them breathless for the third.
added by timspalding | editSchool Library Journal, Hillias J. Martin (Jul 13, 2009)
This best-selling sequel to “Twilight” — which introduced Edward, the world’s most gentlemanly 17-year-old vampire, and Bella, an ordinary teenager in Forks, Wash. — appropriately begins with an epigraph from “Romeo and Juliet”; love and death are once again entwined in their curiously absorbing romance.
Despite Bella's flat and obsessive personality, this tale of tortured demon lovers entices.

These violent delights

have violent ends and in their triumph die,

like fire and powder, which, as they kiss, consume.

Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene VI
For my dad, Stephen Morgan —

No one has ever been given more loving and unconditional support than I have been given by you.

I love you, too.

I felt like I was trapped in one of those terrifying nightmares, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can't make your body move fast enough.
Times passes. Even when it seems impossible.

Book description
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.

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 could ever 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...
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316024961, Paperback)

Legions of readers entranced by Twilight are hungry for more and they won't be disappointed. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. The "star-crossed" lovers theme continues as Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy's reigning royal family of vampires, the Volturi. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.
