Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer
Pages: 629
ISBN: 978-0-316-16020-9
Inside Flap Description:

As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob -- knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. Wit her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

My Rating: A
My Review:
The third installment in a wonderful saga, Eclipse is a wonderful book. The characters are so well rounded and so easy to love, it's no wonder there's a whole community dedicated to them on the internet!

Edward's love is so believable and raw that it brings tears to my eyes and the way that Ms. Meyer writes makes my breath catch whenever the character's does. Watching Jacob grow as both boy to man and into a werewolf is like watching someone I love develop.

I will say, that I think the book dragged just a bit in the middle, but not enough to worry about. I also personally (again, this is just my opinion) didn't agree with some of the choices that Bella made when it came to Jacob, but by the end of the book I saw some of the point and where it could lead.
I am anxiously waiting for August 2d to read Breaking Dawn


  1. I have this series and can't wait to read it! It sounds excellent. I also just picked up this author's The Host and can't wait to read it.

  2. It's a great series.I highly recommend it.

    I haven't read Host yet. Though I intend to some day. It's a bit more of a stretch for me, so we'll have to give it time.

  3. I just wanted to stop by and thank you for commenting at J. Kaye's Book Blog! It makes my day to meet new bloggers and to have them come by regularly to comment. Love reading what others think!

    Anyway, I hope you'll come back regularly. I think you have a super cool blog and I'd like to spotlight it if you don't mind. :)

    And hey, April! So nice to see my blogging buddy here too!! :-D

  4. Are you serious!? That'd be awesome. And thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be adding you and April as the first two in my blog roll.

    Thanks again. You rule!

  5. I am so serious! Did you just start blogging or have you been doing this for some time?

  6. Well, I have a live journal as well. If that counts. I guess that probably counts. I just wanted a place to have all of my reviews. I like sharing my thoughts on books, as I love books very much.

    Um, what is a spotlight?

  7. Hi J.Kaye!!! Isn't this a great blog - great to see you here too!

    Melange - I actually found you my way of the comment you left at J.Kaye's blog, lol. I am going to add you to my blog roll also! I see you added my Booklovers Year in Review site. I actually use as my main blog. I should just delete my Booklovers one since I never use that one. So, please check out my cafe of dreams site if you like!
    What is your live journal addy?

  8. Oh! I'll change it right away April.

    my LJ is

    But, as of now it's Friends Only and hasn't been updated in a month or so.

    I'm off to change it on my blog roll.

  9. If you take a look at my blog now, you'll see a spotlight on LadyVampire's Lair. That's an example. Yours is next.

  10. I've noticed on the Blogger Blog Roll that it won't update. I've tinkered around with it and found out that you have to delete J. Kaye's Book Blog from your blog roll and enter this URL:

    That should work.

  11. hi I found you from j.kayes blog. I love the Twilight series. And I really enjoyed Host.
    nice blog :)

  12. I think overall this is the best one in the series so far. I also really liked Twilight. The whole thing was good! I can't wait for Friday at midnight!!!! I've saved the Host to read after Breaking Dawn because I think I'll be sad that the series is over!

  13. I really enjoyed this series and am looking forward to Breaking dawn - great review (By the way I arrived here thanks to J. Kaye)

  14. J. Kaye. I finally got around to changing my blog roll, thanks for letting me know. I was wondering why it wasn't updating.

    Naida - Thanks for stopping by. The Host may be a bit too out there for me, but I'll be trying it after I finish Breaking Dawn
    Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    Alea - I think Twilight was the best overall. I wish I could go to the midnight party at our local B&N but I have to work at four thirty a.m. the next day!

    Mrs. S - Thanks so much for stopping by. I too am looking forward to Breaking Dawn

  15. That's a bummer! On the brightside, you can still get one once you are done with work :)
