New Moon (Twilight, #2)

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Published: 2006



New Moon by Stephenie Meyer is the 2nd in the Twilight Saga.

Bella Swan thinks she is fitting in well with her new boyfriends vampire family, until Jasper (the newest member) attacks her when she gets a paper cut at her birthday party.  

The Cullens decide it is time to leave Forks.  To protect her,  Edward tells Bella he no longer loves her.  She is heartbroken.  Months go by.  Finally her friend Jacob gets her out of her funk, and she finds that living on the edge will bring back Edward, if only in her mind.  Jacob is going through his own transformation.  Vampires Laurent and Victoria come back and plan on vindicating the loss of James by killing Bella.  This time Jacob and his friends will have to protect her.  When Edward erroneously thinks that Bella jumped off a cliff to her death,  Alice “sees” him going to Italy to have the Volturi kill him.  Now the race is on for Alice and Bella to reach him before it is too late.

As strange as this was without Edward being a main character for most of the book, Meyer developed Jacobs’ character really well, and he definitely filled in the gap.

As stated in my review of Book 1, a lot of people criticize the writing, but the book sales and then movie sales speak for themselves.  This series is a hit!


Favorite Quotes from New Moon:

“The absence of him is everywhere I look.”

“Well, I’m so sorry that I can’t be the right kind of monster for you, Bella.”

“Why are you apologizing for bleeding?”
