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!
EDWARD YOU ARE A BAD BOY
Reader reviewed by blizz
EDWARD IS A BAD BOY !!!!!!!! he leaves Bella to suffer alone in the dark cold world. until she starts hanging around Jacob her own personal sunshine. she starts having halusinations of Edward's voice in her head and she starts to do dangerous stuff because that is what triggers it. but when Edward thinks she is dead he goes to the volturi 3 ancient vampires that are like the royal family of the entire poulation vampires they and they are the most dangerous of them all. Edward wants to be killed because he thinks Bella is dead and it is up to Bella to stop him. although this is my least favorite but i recomend it, plus you wont understand what is happening in eclipse unless you do

this book is one of the most boring books i have read. there are only a few book i have read that are as boring as this book. although there were good parts in the book the magority of the book was uninteresting. i only own this book because i own the series and some of my favorite parts of the story line are in this book. if you are going to buy the series i recomend not leaving this one out because there are some important parts in this book that are refered to in the other books.
Painful! But good ending
Reader reviewed by Jen
New Moon is a lot about Bella whining about missing Edward who leaves 'for her own good.' If someone hadn't told me to hang in there because the ending was good I might not have finished it. I know Stephanie Meyer had to build the Jacob/Bella relationship and those parts were good but the whining got annoying after about300 pages! Anyway, on a whole this series is great and this book lays the groundwork for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Can't wait to see the movie and how that is approached.

New moon is the second book to the Twilight series. What I didn't like about this book is that Edward thought that him being around Bella was dangerous which is probably true.So he leaves this pretty much breaks Bellas heart, she sort of ends up becoming suicidal. Everytime she does something dangerous that can really get her hurt she hears Edwards voice, it seems like shes willing to risk her life to hear his voice. This irritated me because she shouldn't risk her life for some beautiful vampire. In the end he realizes that hes good for Bella and that he can keep her safe. I like how Edward can turn invisible thats pretty cool.
A Second Look

New Moon is the sequel to Twilight. In this book, Edward leaves Bella. Bella becomes extremely depressed, and befriends Jacob, just so she could use him to hear Edward's voice in her mind. jacob, however. is in love with her. Meanwhile, Edward somehow misunderstands and believes that Bella is dead. He procedes to attempt suicide.Â
How Could You Do This To Me?

Haven't read the Edward/Bella romance series yet? You're missing out! hahah.
If Vampire-y things are really the kind of thing your into. This series doesn't go too much into that. Its truly about the romance. New Moon was probably my least favorite out of the series. Edward leaves for an extended time. :/ Talk about break my heart! The majority of this book deals with Bella longing for Edward to come back. I consider this book mainly a filler in the series. However, this book is probably the TEAM JACOB'S favorite. xD
Get to reading! --Megan!
the werewolves' time to shine

New moon is a sequel to the novel twilight by stephenie meyer. so the book began by the cullens and bella swan celebrating her 18th birthday. she never wanted to celebrate knowing that she is getting older than edward as the day passes by. while opening her gifts, she got a papercut which lead edward to jump on her to pretect her from jasper(he's the newest member of the cullen so he is still coping to be a "vegetarian"). Bella was lest terrified and injured due to edward's strength. This resulted in Edward leaving bella for her "safety". Of course, Bella didnt want him to leave but he did. She was very depressed for months. She remembers an old friend, Jacob Black, son of Billy Black, a friend of her father. Eventually, they became really good friends and Jacob fell in love with her. She tried doing extreme things because she learned that she could hear edward's voice when she does so. She soon discovers that he is a werewolf because he is a descendant of Ephraim Black,a quillieute tribe leader. She also learns the quillieute history and how they became werewolves. a death of a neightbour and a good friend of bella's dad occured and alice, edward's sister who can see the future, saw that she jumped off a cliff and thought she died. when edward called to confirm, he had mistaken bella's death to harry clearwater's so he ran to italy to provoke the volturi's. provoking the voltuirs would cause death to a vampire if he/she breaks the rule or try to expose them. since in edward's mind she's dead, he doesnt want to live anymore because there would be no point of existing if his other half is gone. bella was terrified when she knew this when alice came back to tell her. so they went to italy to save edward from killing himself.
this book was okay for me because of the part where edward leaves bella and he was barely in the book. but overall it was good. i like the part when bella runs really fast in order to save edward from exposing their vampire family by going out in the sun. :) i recommend this book to everyone who loves mystery, thriller and romance.
A Nice Effort

The sequel to Twilight was far less riveting than it's predecessor. It's the start of Jacob's and Bella's affection to each other is what most Twilight lovers are appalled at. While to others, Eclipse will probably be in the second ranking of the series, I found that New Moon was pleasantly good. I love the emotional feel and angst of losing Edward and the reunion was so heart-breaking.
