Eclipse (Twilight Book 3) by Stephenie Meyer

Book Description:
Edward's soft voice came from behind me.
I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again. This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine-like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us.
As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob-knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

My Thoughts:
Wow! This book was great. Bella and Edward are back together, but she is still struggling with Jacob issues. While she is working through them, and trying to figure out how both guys fit into her life there are murders going on in Seattle. The Seattle murders seem to worry Edward but he is trying to hide that from Bella. The werewolves and vampires still distrust each other but Bella needs them to put that aside as the danger gets closer.
The love triangle with Bella, Edward and Jacob is wonderful and sad at the same time. Edward is still PERFECT, but at the same time, Jacob is wonderful. Bella's indecisiveness seems completely unfair but totally understandable. The action in this book is also great. I love the fact that she puts the characters in situations where they MUST get along. I just really like the whole pot and all the characters in this book. Alice is still a wonderful favorite, Jasper is explained better, and the whole cast of characters are even more likeable than ever!
5/5 is defiantly the rating for this book! Go buy it and read it now, then you'll read it over and over!!


  1. This was my favorite book out of all four. I loved the scene in the tent and Bella's kiss with Jacob was smoking. But in the end, I'm still Team Edward. I also think they did a great job with the movie for this one.

  2. I haven't seen the movie yet (1 month old is slowing me down!) but I'm so looking forward to it! I'm now almost half way done with book 4 :)
