New Moon by Stephenie Meyer: Well written and somewhat depressing. I didn't like it as well as Twilight, and yes, I will admit it, I missed Edward through the rather large middle portion that seemed to drag on forever without him. I really liked the character development of Jacob and the unique story surrounding him though. The ending was satisfactory and I did run out to buy Eclipse right after finishing New Moon.
Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer: Of the three, Eclipse ties with Twilight as the favorite. I can't decide which I like best. Eclipse was definitely better than New Moon and the story felt more rounded. I feel like the complexities of human emotion really shone in this third book, although New Moon boasts quite a relatable collection of emotion too. I have high hopes for Breaking Dawn coming out this August.
Be More Chill by Ned Vizzini: Hilarious and original. It wasn't my usual kind of pager turner but I went through it pretty fast nonetheless. All I can say is definitely give it a chance if you haven't already read it. The ending is a little vexing (at least it was for me) but not enough to diminish my appreciation of the book. Someone tell me there is a sequel?
Wake by Lisa McMann: Brilliant, original, and truly intriguing. This fabulous novel was another that strayed from my usual genre preference and didn't disappoint. Wake is definitely a page-turner that offers a little bit of everything from romance and drama to mystery and action. I'm definitely recommending it if you haven't read it!
That's all for now folks! Hopefully I'll be posting again soon.
