4's Not Bad!

Reader reviewed by Amber

I don't like to read all that much so I compare the book that I read with the movie and I would say the book is better. For not liking to read this kept me intrigued and made me want to get to the end. yes, the movie you can picture it in your brain what it looks like, but the book is so much more graphic and detailed. It is sometimes more fun to picture the scenes as you feel they would look like. Over all this book is a 4 out of 5. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to someone who just loves vampires, but also to someone who is into a little suspense and romance.

Had To Read It!

Reader reviewed by K Lawson

This is a must read after Twilight.  Of course you will miss Edward, but it is worth getting through to follow the story line.  The books are written ok, nothing earth shattering.  If it gets you to read, then enjoy it.

I did read the series and thought they were fine.  Probably won't read them again.

It feels like my heart has been torn out of my chest!

Reader reviewed by sally

New moon is the second book of the twilight sequel. It shows how love could do things that the physical body couldn't endure. the books starts with Bella's eighteenth birthday and how she doesnot want to celebrate it because she is getting older and Edward is not. She was forced to go to a birthday party the Cullen's made for her. But because of an accident that endangered her life, Edward is forced to leave her. Unlike Twilight, New Moon is more practical because it gave the agony she lived through when she was away from Edward. New Moon is influenced by Shakepear's Romeo and Juliet, But unlike this tragedy, the novel actually had a happy ending. This novel will make you stay awake all night reading it. It is a great story that will protray to the reader the meaning of true love.

Twilight Addiction- Begin!

Reader reviewed by Selina C


Technically, I read this book at least two years ago, defiantly some time before the movie's mention. I fell in love with the whole plot of the Twilight saga, and the sweet, deadly romance struck up between Bella, the average run of the mill mortal, and Edward, an 107 teen who hasn't aged in a century. When Edward left Bella in New Moon, my heart broke. I wanted to cry with her, lost in the sorrow of her one true love, suddenly no longer wanting her, but her unable to avoid the craving for him. Of course, he was still in love with her, and the true romance behind this was his leaving her for her own good; foolish but romantic. Jacob Black became Bella's best friend and something more in this novel, and it finished out with an unsettled confrontation left for Eclipse, the rivalry for Bella between Edward and Jacob. Personally, there was never any contest-Edward was meant to be Bella's other half to make her whole, it was obvious to me since Twilight had first introduced him to be the mysterious loner of a family full of perfect matches.


Their separation only made the love grow stronger, and when, finally, theyre reunited at the end, I could feel my own heart heal itself form its invisible wound. New Moon is an amazing book, and if you havent read it yet, please do. Though I am glad for the amount of love being showered over the Twilight saga, it bothers me how far its being exploited- Twilight conversation hearts is a tad overboard, and Im praying we wont be seeing any Twilight shower curtains, promising perfect cover without water splashing outside your tub, along with a close up of the face of whichever character has stolen your affections. Jokes aside (I hope!) New Moon is an easy read novel, one youll be fighting to put down. Just dont let the teachers catch you reading in their class!

Better

Reader reviewed by Jenna

New Moon is alot better than the first book, Twilight, I got so mad when Edward left!! Victoria to me seems dangerous and terrifying. I think it puts a nice emphasis on how girls can be stronger and better than guys. Jasper is Ok, and I love Alice. The characters are very much more rounded, and If I were Bella, I would be very very confused, still jumping of cliffs?


Cool!

So Cute

Reader reviewed by Cintia

After an accident at the cullen's residence edward decides to leave bella for her own good. Bella begins hanging out with jacob black who is now a werwolf and doing crazy things in order to hear edward in her mind. After a misunderstandment edward thinks that bella died and decides to upset the venturi in order to get killed. Throughout the novel Jacob is so sweet. The whole book was really romantic.

The Setting Sun Brings the Rise of a New Moon

Reader reviewed by GRgenius

Seconds, please? In this follow-up to Twilight, New Moon seeks to explore the strength of true love and how far we are willing to go to preserve it. New Moon exposes both Bella and the reader, to the potential absence of Edward and what life may be like with Jacob as your universal center. Can Bella handle the fallout from such an act of seeming betrayal? Can Jacob settle with being a replacement? Will she ever see Edward again? To find out, just read the book! (Can't spoil it for you.) An emotional roller coaster filled with the ups and downs that life can throw into any relationship. Jump in, strap on your seat belt and prepare for a bumpy ride!

While this is definitely the most "blue" book of the series, it scores major points with the twist and turn of events during the later half as well as exploring the utter despair losing a loved one can bring.

I wish i were bella

Reader reviewed by Hope

When jasper tries (uwilingly) to kill bella, the cullens decided to leave forks. When Edward leaves bella she is beond devistated. The only antidote to her depression is Jake black.
When jake  starts to avoid her, she doesn't know what to do. Then Jake tells Bella that he is a werewolf. And things sort of even out...
I think that it was a well desered 5 star book.

so so

Reader reviewed by Megan S

So what to say about new moon....To start i will have to say how funny it was that alice was sssoooo excited about bellas birthday and bella herself wasnt at all! haha but then when the whole thing happend at her birthday it was actually scary! but i think that edward was over reacting about the whole thing. Nothing really happend that was that bad. When i left i hated it! i would have chased him down also! i just didnt like it at all when he was gone and she was spending time with jacob. But you can just tell how much she loved edward when she was doing all those crazy things just to hear his voice. But other then the fact he was gone and she was so upset all the time it was a very good book!
