Legions of readers entranced by New York Times bestseller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural spin. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.
 


My Review:   
Well now, (smiling widely) Author Stephenie Meyer Has Done It Again here with New Moon. The more twist and turns, the tension builds, the more the story line is growing along side the characters are even more powerful. Her writing style is even more powerful in this second book in the Twilight series. 

Bella Swans character is growing into a young lady who feels that she knows what she wants: Edward Cullen. And even though the danger is becoming more stronger, not just for her but her family, Bella is still obsessed with the Vampire world. 

I was so obsessed myself with this book. As I said in my Twilight Review , I also watched the movies of each of the books before reading them. So I was aware of some things with in these wonderful captivating pages of New Moon that I could not wait to finish it. I absolutely loved the twist and turns that was not showed in the movie.

As with Twilight, I so wish that I had read the books before watching it! But in one way I am still glad I did it my way.

Now For The Movie:  
         

  WOW! Suspense, Love Triangle (maybe), I so love the second movie. I was so excited when it finally came out. Yes I know I am in the older category, but author Stephenie Meyer has began such a thriller and I was hooked from the beginning and will always be a huge fan! As for the movie verses book: Well lets just say I want both. I believe at the moment I am writing this review I have watched the first and second movie around eight times now. And will more than likely watch them even more.  





So now that I have shared my thoughts on the book and the movie I will say this: just like Twilight, if I had a rating that was far above a five (5) clock rating these both would receive it. But since I don't. 


I wholeheartedly recommend this Amazingly, Fantastic, Suspenseful book and movie to ALL my young adult and older readers!

Pick it up today and please let me know what you think.      


So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 

Five Clock Rating!!!  
Disclosure: I did not receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But these opinions are my own and yours may differ.

About the Author:  

 
I was born in Connecticut in 1973, during a brief blip in my family's otherwise western U.S. existence. We were settled in Phoenix by the time I was four, and I think of myself as a native. The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen (+ ie = me). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to google myself now.
I filled the "Jan Brady" spot in my family-the second of three girls. Unlike the Brady's, none of my three brothers are steps, and all of them are younger than all the girls. I went to high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, the kind of place where every fall a few girls would come back to school with new noses and there were Porsches in the student lot (for the record, I have my original nose, and never had a car until after I was in my twenties). I was awarded a National Merit Scholarship, and I used it to pay my way to Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah. I majored in English, but concentrated on literature rather than creative writing, mostly because I didn't consider reading books "work" (as long as I was going to be doing something anyway, I might as well get course credit for it, right?).
I met my husband, Pancho (his real name is Christiaan), when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts. In fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I can't recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words. This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first "hello" to the wedding. Of course, we were able to skip over a lot of the getting to know you parts (many of our conversations would go something like this: "This one time, when I was ten, I broke my hand at a party when-" "Yeah, I know what happened. I was there, remember?") We've been married for ten and a half years now, and have three beautiful, brilliant, wonderful boys who often remind me chimpanzees on crack. I can't write without music, and my biggest muse is, ironically enough, the band Muse. My other favorite sources of inspiration are Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Coldplay, The All American Rejects, Travis, The Strokes, Brand New, U2, Kasabian, Jimmy Eat World, and Weezer, to mention a few.
