Book of the Month and September Reads

What can I say - I absolutely loved this book. It seems people really do either love or hate Stephanie Meyer, but I'm quite a fan. Anyone who can wring out emotions like she does gets a tick from me. =)

"The Host" is very *very* different to her Twilight books - better, IMHO. Alien souls implanted into human bodies and living on earth while 'real' humans hide themselves away in caves to eke out an existence - brilliant! I'd like to say more - particularly about the heroine, but I won't spoil it. Just read it =)

September Reads:
A Spanish Vengeance: Diane Hamilton
Destiny Kills: Keri Arthur
Foretaste of Forever: Christina Phillips

It is a fantastic book isn't it. I don't know what it is about Stephenie Meyer's work but she has a way of dragging you into the story. Compelling characters and yes emotional.

Totally agree Eleni,
well worth a read =)

It's funny, my two daughters and son loved all the Twilight books (obsessed is probably the better word!!!) but they couldn't finish The Host. On the other hand I managed to read more of the Host than I did of Twilight!!

My daughter was also the same with the twilight books, but she couldn't wrap her head around the first chapter of The Host. Then again it's not a YA so I guess it's understandable.
