: MY RAMBLINGS :

All the postings here reflect my opinion or ratings (books/movies) ... I ask everyone to watch a movie and make up your own mind - the same with a book ... don't just take my word for it!

I have been known to hate a movie and others love it - and vice versa ... that's what makes us all unique and wonderful - we all have our own opinion, likes and dislikes!

RATINGS :
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Excellent Read - do yourself a favor
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Good Read - you won't be disappointed
♥ ♥ ♥ = Not Bad Read - chill out and unwind
♥ ♥ = Okay Read - if you have nothing else
♥ = YAWN - don't bother :(

REVIEWS :
If you are an author or publisher ... I would love to review your book! I read all genres, and would review all books in a reasonable time frame. You can contact me at dennypsp@hotmail.com

postheadericon : New Moon by Stephanie Meyer :


First Published in the US by Little Brown in 2006
Paperback - 563 pages
ISBN :978-1-905654-35-2

'Shoot,' I muttered when the paper sliced my fingers. I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.

It all happened very quickly then.

'No,' Edward roared ... Dazed and disorientated, I looked up from the bright red blood pushing out of my arm - into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself : Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella could ever have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realise their troubles may just be beginning.

Passionate, riveting and deeply moving, New Moon, the compelling sequel to Twilight, irresistibly combines romance and suspense with a supernatural twist.

Right we all know that I love the Twilight Saga - so as soon as I finished reading Twilight, reached for New Moon and started reading. In the beginning, I loved it ... and then totally felt Bella's pain when things started to turn sour in her life. I felt her pain when Edward left ... and totally loved the few pages with the months only printed on them. That in itself said it all.

I loved the way that Bella connected with Jacob ... reaching out for a friend, but part of me was screaming at her "Don't do it ... it's going to be the beginning of something you can't stop". Reading through this book - feeling Bella's never ending search for Edward ... any way that she could connect with him, through acts of danger ... just brilliant.

But - for me ... I didn't overly enjoy the Bella and Jacob story ... all I wanted was for it to skip ahead to where Bella find that connection with Edward again ...

Stephenie did an amazing job of this book, the emotions were felt with each word I read. Very powerful writing. I could feel the impatience within Bella as she travelled to Italy with Alice, and the desperation to find Edward before he revealed himself, meaning sure death by the hands of the Volturi.

Out of the series of books ... I like this one the least ... is it because I am a true die hard Edward fan? Am I looking for the eternal forever, the love story to be just how I want it? True right I am ... but that said, each time I read this series of books, I give this one a shot again ... Stephenie, you rock - you threw in alot of different things I wasn't expecting, and had me reaching for Eclipse by the time I had finished. That is yet another story ... lol
