Another Saturday night with Bella

I received "New Moon" Saturday morning...and b/c I read the teaser at the end of "Twilight," I was dying to figure out what happened.


So, not bad...and not what I expected. It is very interesting how pretty much the entire book was about werewolves...and Bella didn't get too whiny until the end. I liked the foreshadowing with the mention of Romeo & Juliet, and how it was a constant theme.

I loved Jacob!!! He is my favorite character. His determination made me smile, and reminded me of a similar situation I had High School.
All in all, a good read. I also love her name, and all the nicknames she has...but I might be partial b/c my niece's name is Annabelle, and we all call her Belle.
What did you think?

I'm curious to find out what you think of the next two. I stopped reading after New Moon.

I only made it 1/2 way through book 1. Then I read wikipedia for the rest of the story.

I was chatting with some of the youth in my Sunday School class about the books, and they were split 50/50...they are mostly into the Eragon books right now, like Brisingr.

For a while I made everyone I knew call me Belle, after I saw Beauty and the Beast. Most people ended up calling me dumbbell.

I love the name Isabella, it my Grandma's original middle name until they changed it to Pauline when she was three months old. Bella and Izzy-B are to nicknames I'd call a future daughter...not that I will be having them or married...in this life anyway.

Keep going, my Mom and sisters loved it more and more! I requested them on cd and my library is buying them and I am first on the list. Woohoo!

I liked the books. My favorite character was and is Jacob too! Wait until the final book--he has his own section that is from his point of view--I loved it!!

LOVED tham all. They were attached to my hip and had to read at stop lights. I looked at them as an entire story so didn't want to judge book per book BUT I did love New Moon because it was emotional with Edward being gone. I loved this series and how it ended. Very well done!!!!

Mary-you are so witty, it always cracks me up!

Unfortunately I have had to limit my reading to 2 chapters a day...school really sucks sometimes...but it is good to have competent nurses, right?

I LOVE Edward...and I was discussing with a friend today that I think it is b/c every girl wants to have that one guy that loves and adores her for everything that is right & wrong about her. But, I like Jacob as a person...just not for Bella, right now I think they are so great for each other.

Remember not to leak any info about Eclipse or Breaking Dawn...b/c then I will be forced to drop everything, and skip school til I can finish it. Don't make me do it...you know I will!

Competent nurses ARE good, but if you are a competent NICE nurse...you will make me very happy...mean nurses SUCK!
