New Moon (Twilight #2) by Stephenie Meyer

Synopsis by http://www.goodreads.com/

Shoot, I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.It all happened very quickly then.Edward threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table...I tumbled down to the floor by the piano, with my arms thrown out instinctively to catch my fall, into the jagged shards of glass. I felt the searing, stinging pain that ran from my wrist to the crease inside my elbow. Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm-into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.

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.

My Comments:

I certainly like this book much better than the first book. Got it from the Big Bad Wolf Sale 2011. Brand new!

The book have a much faster pace and more action packed.

I like the way she put he empty pages to reflect the time passed in a zombified state. But the part about Bella's best friend alienated her does not really jibe with me.  If the author could have elaborated more on what happen it would be nice.

Anyway, I started to hate the character, Bella, in this book. Well, that is a good sign of success for the author, right? The ability to arouse readers emotions.

Why I hated Bella? Coz to me she was very self-centered. I felt that in the first book she used Mike to gain acceptance among her peers. Then in the second book she used Jacob to nurse her wounds. She is a "user".

Nevertheless, the story was well written and plot were well planned..at least for me.
