New Moon by Stephanie Meyer

iconiconI'm almost reading these books too fast to keep up with them on my blog. I finished Twilight late Wednesday night (or should I say early Thursday morning?), New Moon early Thursday evening, and Eclipse early this afternoon.

The bad thing is that they are all running together, and it's making it difficult for me to write reviews of each book individually. The good thing is that they are all such a continuous story so as to run together like that, and keep me hooked the entire time.

I do know that I didn't enjoy New Moon quite as much as the first book. I think it was partly the budding romance in Twilight that made it so compelling. It was so well written, it made me remember exactly what it was like to be a teenager and be infatuated with a new boyfriend.

New Moon, on the other hand, reminded me of what it was like to go through a really bad breakup. Maybe that's why I didn't like it as much, but I could totally empathize with the depression and the rebound relationship that Bella went through.

I also have to admit, I really like Edward's character and the sexual tension that Meyer maintains between them. It has to be one of the most compelling things about the books. And because Edward wasn't in most of this book, it felt very different from Twilight. Still compelling... but different.

I liked Eclipse much better... But I'll save that for my next post!
