BELLA?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 againThis 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 usAs Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her uest 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 uickly approaching Bella has one decision to make life or death But which is which?READERS CAPTIVATED BY Twilight AND New Moon will eagerly devour Eclipse the much anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer's riveting vampire love saga

    You gave it three stars? she asked me biting her lip and holding her breathYes I finally answered with my marble lips cold yet strangely comforting even warm Stephenie don't forget to breatheOh of course A storm seemed to rage in her for just a momentI gave it a three It's good I would never lie to her could never lie to her Yet somehow she felt it was a lie and brooded in stillness for a moment that seemed to last an eternityFinally I broke the aching silence I gave it a three because the vampire lore was that good the extended plotline and the setup for a decent fourth novel were all enjoyable There I said it Would it be enough for her? No it would never be enoughBut you absolutely hated the tent scene with the spoiler removed and you wanted to send Bella straight to vampire hell for her self absorbed self indulgent self obsessed self ness by the end We paused and I noticed sobs erupting from deep inside herStephenie breathe and stop biting your lip it's getting really annoying uit with the crying already Yes all of those things are true and if I could release myself from your books I would But But? she asked longlingly her fingers caressing my face while my fingers caressed her face and somebody else's fingers were somehow caressing both our faces because you can never have too much face caressing going on whose fingers are those anyway? But despite how much I hate Bella by now I really want to find out about the Volturi and the process of becoming a vampire and whether Bella is somehow part of an ancient bloodline that stirs up all the vampires and werewolves whenever she's around That's why I gave it three stars and that's why I gasped she gasped we both forgot to breathe and bit our lips why I will be reading the fourth book as soon as it is outFinally I remembered to breathe and stopped caressing her face looked into her eyes and with my godlike cool marble lips asked Satisfied?Smiling she answered Yes veryNotes from James If you like this one you will probably also get a kick out of my original review of Book 1 Enjoy

    Ohhh yeah I made a BookTube Video all about my scandalously unpopular twilight opinions check out the video to see itif you dareAnyway onwards to the review Isabella Swan? I promise to love you forever every single day of forever Will you marry me? I can feel my teenage heart uivering I'm gonna fight for you until your heart stops beating That heart just explodedWhewwwww Ten years ago I would've fought anyone who challenged Edward and Bella's love Nowadays? Not uite as fervently but I will still go head to head on this oneIn case you've been under a rock for the last decade Edward the sparkling vamp loves Bella the clumsy human who loves Jacob the hot headed werewolf but ONLY AS A FRIEND ha Annnd that's pretty much it There's some background stuff evil vampire assembling an army to wipe out Bella Bella accidentally breaking her bones the Volturi threatening to kill Bella if she isn't turned into a vampire yada yadabut MORE IMPORTANTLY she has to finally choose once and for all Let's examine the evidence Okay okay Joking asideLet's just say reading this as an adult has shifted my perspective slightly I was totally oblivious to things that are glaringly obvious Chock it up to being a YA while reading YA litYes their love is frighteningly codependent especially taking Edward's age into considerations Isn't the rule half your age plus seven? And yes the love triangle is so incredibly over the top you have on one side a normal teenage boy and on the otherA psychotically obsessed ex murdering stalker Annnnd yes Bella is a bit of a limp noodle when it comes to heroism and her clumsiness is so extreme that she needs to get her head checked Honestly Victoria should've just scattered a bag of marbles in Bella's bedroom and waited for the human to trip and dieBut hats off to nostalgia because I still had fun reading this one I'm no longer super obsessed teen but I still adore this seriesPs Anyone else seen the Hillywood Eclipse Parody?

    My notes to characters in EclipseBella I'm so done with you You're a self absorbed little snot You're not a strong modern woman because you don't want to be a teen bride and you're not cute because you fall down a lotAlice You're so not cute either Jacob What you did is called date rape buckaroo And to think I liked you best until the middle of this bookEdward Checking the brood o meter yep you're still no David BoreanazLeah the one lady wolf I don't understand why you're getting the short end of the stick just because you had your heart broken everyone seemed to cut Bella enough slack in the last book for a lot less Sucks to be a supporting female character in these books huh?Note to Stephenie Meyer Even you must think the Wuthering Heights references are a little over the top right? Oh and all your acknowledgements? Well you're not cute too

    snif my link is worthless nowthis is the virgin daiuiri version of wuthering heights all watered down plopped in a blender and sitting at the folding card table with the kiddiesand they are all gulping it down without knowing that the real deal is way funelizabeth has probably written the best review this book could ever get with much wittier analogies so go read that then come back here for some less articulate complaintsi messed up i thought i would have a nice vacation where i would have plenty of time and concentration to lounge over our mutual friend instead there was drinking and some self pity and vacation langour and i just couldn't give dickens the attention he deserves you know who really doesn't deserve my complete attention? stephenie meyerand why is that? because she has grievously misinterpreted one of my favorite books and has created this sort of chimera byproduct that you can see some of the source material in if you suint but it's mostly just wrongi mean at this point in everyone's lives the world doesn't need another eclipse review right? so i am mostly going to just bitch about why this book misrepresents wuthering heights and why that makes me crankyi suppose it is ambitious of her to have attempted to pepper her vampire romance novels with elements of better works of literature like say shakespeare and jane austen she made the decision to try to shoehorn these characters into the mold of another book and just didn't bother trying to fix the parts that overflowed or got stuck togetherbut you can't get mad at a puppy for pissing on the rugand i knew what i was getting into before i started reading this i was aware that this was the wuthering heights installment of the series so i was obligated to read it on those grounds alone as i will read any retelling of wh for better or for worse usually worseand elizabeth had warned me and warned me that meyer got wh all wrong and had reversed the roles of heathcliff and linton in a most embarrassing way but at first i saw no problems bella was obviously catherine edward was heathcliff the true love and jacob was lintonthe appropriate choice right? done and done i kept reading shocked thinking but elizabeth is never wrong what gives??is she only basing this on appearance? on the superficial? edward is fair and wealthy and very understanding of bella's other ties like linton maybe not understanding in linton's case but ineffectual and jacob is definitely darker complected like heathcliff and tied to nature and the earth but that shouldn't change the basic differencesbecause obviously edward is the sun to bella's flower face she cannot be without him even an afternoon spent apart is unendurable and the intensity of their love is undeniable and unbreakable and blah and blah jacob is her father's choice for her which makes him linton who is technically a better choice because there is less self destructive passion and choosing him allows her to remain you know alivebut let's back upbecause wuthering heights was never a choice between two suitable men it was a choice between passion and security head and heart and linton was never an alternative to heathcliff catherine always just wanted it all it was never about love not with lintonhe was simply the path of least resistance and a means to an end securing him meant securing a place for heathcliff whom she could never marry but who needs marriage when your husband is much weaker than your lover?so in a modern version of the storyit makes sense to do away with the financial angle especially with characters this young the conflict here is between soul and body all bella has to do is choose humanity or immortalityeasy peasy so the reversal of edward and jacob's fortunes didn't cause me too much grief and still maintains the distinction between edwardheathcliff and jacoblinton the root of the conflict is the same to go with an all consuming passion that eclipses one's own self and is potentially dangerous for so so many reasons here or to go with the one who feels like family who has the paternal approval who will allow her to remain a living breathing human and retain her entire lifeexcept her passionfine this still parallels wh and the specific details heathcliff goes away while catherine recovers at the linton's and then he goes on that much longer absence plunging her into despair so far so good edward leaves bella in new moon and jacob steps in to be there for her and heals her and manages to stick a little bit of him in the space edward's leaving leftbut then it gets messy and too many of heathcliff's characteristics start leaking into jacob because jacob is kind of a dick forcing kisses always smirking and pushing his boundarieshe takes much delight in troublemaking and hurting his rival and occasionally hurts bellatoo jacob is warm and furious and tied to the forest the way heathcliff is tied to the moorsit is jacob who is the earthbound heathcliff she can remain a grubby child with meyer rightly recognizes edward as the other half of bella's soul but extracts all the physical earthly passion from that role and gives it to jacobedward protects her like a fine crystal object while his sister dresses her like a doll what does this sound like?? linton linton linton bella as catherine is obviously the weakest here she is nothing like catherine she moans about not being good enough for edward catherine was never good enough for linton but did that stop her? she barreled in and took what she wanted and refused to leave bella fusses over everyone and just wants everyone to be happy and self sacrifices all over the place i understand that bella's character has already been established in other books but how can she compare herself to catherine with a straight face?? catherine is a goddamn honey badger bella is a mother henher relationship with edward certainly has elements that are unappealing who wants to be watched and protected that closely all the time? but at least i believed in their feelings because they are always reminding me and shoving my face in itjacob forces himself on her laughs at her human weakness when she fights back and tries to separate her from her happiness at every turn it is both arrogant and insecure but this is still somehow but the one who is most like family who bella's dad wants her to be with do NOT get me started on parental roles in the twilight sagabut uickly our girl walks through the door from her vacation and already is making dinner for her father who supports some shirtless douchebag's forced kisses but hates the rich boy who really wants to marry his daughter and preserve her virginity but this is another reversal to wh too since heathcliff was at least raised as family even if you don't interpret heathcliff as mr earnshaw's bastad son which is not a belief i personally subscribe to but it is out there edward is patient and forgiving and gentle and willing to give bella the space she needs before making her decision before she is even aware there is a decision to makecome on that can't be rightheathcliff doesn't share he can tolerate linton because he is weak and catherine would not have him harmed but this vampire zen shit has no place in a heathcliff character and isn't even a linton uality that element is pure meyerin wuthering heights everyone behaves poorlyin this one it is really just jacob as linton i mean heathcliff i mean jacobnonsenseapart from any messing with the heights stumbles this also maintains all the lazy writing and comical details meyer interprets as passion all the tooth grinding and clenching and chuckling and things said under the breathoh and snorting why does everyone snort? and borrowing lines from wuthering heights to help bolster your characters is like posing next to the chubby girl in photographs to look slimmer we see your borrowed fineryand the love triangle thing is pretty forced bella herself doesn't even realize until the end that she is even in a love triangle so how are we supposed to? honestly i am aware that there is such a thing as team jacob because i am a citizen of the world but god what's the appeal in some pushy dude who won't take no for an answer??and why do i excuse heathcliff all his sins? is it because the writing is better? is it because i believe in his love in a way i do not believe in bella? because when i think of heathcliff i feel a physical reaction in my heart when i think of jacob i roll my eyesi actually liked twilight despite its flaws new moon was boring and repetitive this one was irritating because of how much i looove whthere is no evil in this book no revenge the stakes are too low in the trianglei picture the three of them at a baroh i made sure jacob would overhear my conversation with bella about our upcoming nuptials snort chuckle eeeevil oh i knew edward could read my mind so i thought about how sad bella was when he went away clenched teeth snorteeeevil oh i married her husband's sister alternately beating and ignoring her raised my enemy's son to be an illiterate brute and ruined everyone's lives while i mourned my one true love crickets the sound of edward and jacob pissing themselveshere is some exciting eclipse information for this year get on that venus one because you're not gonna get another chance unless you are team edwardand because this still makes me laugh think i have probably made a point or two in that rant somewhere i wasn't enraged overall not really but it was a pretty bloated book and i really don't get all the love for this seriesoh and a gross dedication to my husband pancho for your patience love friendship humor and willingness to eat outTMI stephenie meyer TMI come to my blog

    I had expectations for this book but I found it to be a terrible disappointment Where to begin with? First of all I have lost most of the respect I had for Bella as a character Her obsession for Edward has really gone overboard to the point of becoming downright annoying even unhealthy She worships the ground he walks on and is all too ready to dump her parents and friends just so she can spend time with him without growing old She doesn't seem to have any serious problem with the idea of making her parents worry or the thought of never see them again she's willing to stomp over anything that isn't Edward even things that can enrich her life She's like a satellite her boring life revolving solely around him She has no self worth and spends a good deal of the book whining complaining and sighing I really wanted to shake her hard at times and tell her to GET A LIFE I also find it deeply disturbing that Bella is not repulsed by the idea of blood lust How could she accept the thought that she will want to kill people even her family so easily just because of him? Second Edward has gone from charming to BORING There is such a thing as being too perfect read dull and Edward fits the mold perfectly His character is so flat and how many times can we hear Bella and Edward exchange their love for one another before becoming bored? I mean honestly how perfect can he be before it simply becomes ridiculous? Most of the book is spent on the two of them fawning over each other and Bella saying over and over and over again how sexy and good looking he is Writing tip for the author You don't need to tell us countless times that your character is wonderful Actions speak for themselves Jane Austen didn't need to remind us several times that Mr Darcy was perfect he simply wasThird Jacob He's the reason I gave this book 2 stars He was the most compelling character in the book He wasn't perfect but he was fun honest and very human making big mistakes but always trying to do his best he was impossible not to love He was real not a perfect pretty doll with no flaws Sadly he was mostly wastedI also the think the magic Twilight had dissapeared I liked the books because the author made the whole vampirewerewolf thing so credible but now with armies of vampires raging through Washington credibility has gone out the window Also the whole book was focused on on a love triangle that everybody knew how it would end and it made everything very predictable And how come nobody saw that Victoria was behind the killings when it was so darn obvious even to the casual reader? Were they stupid? Overall a great disappointment I'm not sure if I'll read the next book in the series Why bother?

    Eclipse took what magic was in Twilight and survived the boring but interesting New Moon and killed it off with it's length lack of imagery inconsistencies and lifeless charactersThe high school romance theme is COMPLETELY abandoned we have the occasional random scene since we need some build up to Bella's very boring graduation where she doesn't care I think the high school theme is one of the reasons Twilight was such a success the reader was really in Bella's shoes as she solved Edward while attending school to provide a normal break We sometimes read Bella studying for tests but that is only to pass the time until something supernatural happens we never see the test nor does she feel ANY concern for her dismal grades Heck Bella doesn't even care about a paid stay at Dartmouth even if it's just a coverThe writing dropped dead like the book itself and lost its magic it was by no means great prose but it was descriptive and nice to read Now we read It was amazing the amount of detail involved in the little figurine the miniature wolf was utterly realistic Well gee thanks for that couldn't Meyer have at least told us the wolf's pose?Bella lost the traits that made her relatable and enjoyable that made us feel that she was Edward's eual She cares nothing for her parents or human friends only visiting Angela the first time we've seen one on one interaction between them to avoid Edward and to appease Charlie just so she meets her end of their deal and can be with her boyfriend Though Bella was the only one to figure out that the intruder and the Seattle newborns were related which is meant to be a sign of her observance it was so freaking obvious that I knew who was responsible for the newborns the day of the Eclipse Prom when I read the excerpt and knew who made the newborns but Bella by accident only figures this out two days before the newborn attack Bella whines about everything referring to Edward leaving the house because of Jacob visiting as being childish and immature despite that we at least know how much they dislike each other and would gladly fight given the chance She never thinks about how much she is hurting Jacob by keeping him around unless he tells that to her face For some reason every good character loves her even Paul who tried to attack Bella before welcomes her only joking about the bloodsucker stench Then she becomes the housewife to Charlie cooking his meals cleaning the house as a pastime since Charlie didn't learn these skills in his 18 years of living alone nor when he had to care for his ailing parents after high school And you've given me you That's already than I deserve and anything else you gives me just throws us out of balance The most distressing change is that Bella continues to mope about how unworthy she is of Edward despite that she had an epiphany at the end of New Moon which finally made her understand that Edward loved her Then there's marriage though I understand the argument I don't understand it coming from Bella Hey stupid your true love wants to MARRY YOU and yet all you can think of is the town gossip even though you will leave Forks and possibly only keep contact with your father while abandoning everyone else so why does their gossip matter? Bella only agrees to marriage so she can have human sex with Edward before he makes her a vampire; Bella wants sex with Edward while a human offering to accept his proposal let him pay for college AND a car the floozy but Edward only promises to try if Bella marries him she agrees but for the sake of sex because she is till disgusted by marriage She is still Grumpy about parties only complaining despite all the effort the Cullens have done for her Edward lost his suave flirtatious and mysterious charm that enchanted so many in Twilight He's so devoted like a lovesick puppy that it's not charming Edward either manipulates Bella to do what he wants for her sake or he lets her get her way only when it concerns Jacob after they fight of course but Edward seemingly overcomes his very character and being to give Bella what she wants which is a selfish and harmful want on Bella's part Ie He kept pressuring Bella to go to Florida to avoid a werewolfvampire fight for no good reason and then tricked Bella into wanting to go by setting up an argument with her dad that made me so mad But despite how pathetic he was the fact that he loves Bella so much that he won't even be mad with her despite the second kiss still won my pity revoking all will and opinions for the sake of Bella just made me sickWhat used to be a cute loyal friend with a crush is now an obnoxious arrogant sick boy Jake forces himself on Bella and she breaks her hand when trying to punch the yet he still has the gall to put his arm around her and only say that Bella enjoyed it When Bella gives him the cold shoulder later he merely acts exasperated Then he does a hurt puppy act actually pouting when Bella is too distracted to pay mind to him when all he wants to do is give her a present He later pretends that he plans to sacrifice himself to allow Edward to be with Bella I actually bought this thinking Jake's new tough attitude led to this moment but as it turns out it was all a plot to get Bella to kiss him Between the two I may actually want Jake for life since he has flaws and hobbies that a couple could work to overcome in their lifetime but not now; he brought this on himself Jake never acted like he truly loved Bella but rather that Bella was a trophy to prove Jake bested perfect EdwardTheir lovable traits have gone missing leaving very dislikable characters behind whose flaws are either ignored or always forgivenOn the few good sides we finally learn Jasper and Rosalie's past Rosalie's was much interesting to me since she was much involved in the plot both in her bitterness and actions in New Moon; also because she told Bella her story in a selfless effort to not only amend for her past behavior but try to convince Bella to stay human I actually felt sorry for her how she will never sit on a porch with Emmet watching their grandchildren play it made my throat ache Yet all Bella takes from the story is how Tanya was interested in EdwardJasper's wasn't very interesting maybe it's because I wish I knew what he looked like beyond tall lanky and blonde or because as I read his flat story I kept wondering why Bella never noted a Texan accent that certainly would have made him interesting Jasper's story just lacked any good descriptions or life it was like reading Interview with the Vampire but without the wonderful imagery or morale lessons just imagine how dull that would be But I am happy we learned about him as well as how he and Alice met the Cullens it sounds so dang interesting; I wish Meyer will write a spin off about Alice meeting JasperWe also learn the werewolves past it certainly wasn't as epic as I suspected So much for natural enemies werewolves and vampires only became enemies by accidentSpeaking of the werewolves imprinting? Yeah poor guys being subjected to such a lame plot device Meyer in case you didn't know imprinting is when a baby animal most commonly BIRDS label the first thing they see as their mentor and follow the thing be it alive or not as an example of how to survive Even without being scientifically incorrect it is a bad idea and I felt no romance in there I feel ill when I recall Bella seeing her relationship with Edward just like werewolf imprinting that completely degraded their relationship and stripped it of loveSeriously now why can't the beloved wonderful and selfless Bella feel any sympathy towards Victoria who lost her beloved James because of Edward and Bella? Isn't Victoria's situation just like Bella's? Victoria isn't even treated as a villain we never even see the newborns besides one who isn't at all the threat we wish we saw nor is she even acknowledged until about two days before the attack she only speaks once and yells once not even being remotely threateningThen there's the women all besides Alice are pathetically devoted to their man Let's count them Bella Renee Esme with her first husband she was abused but Meyer didn't have to do that Leah Victoria Jessica and even Lauren; which leaves Alice and Rosalie the only women to not be crazy without their men and leaves Alice to be the only strong female in the entire series Rosalie wasn't as strong but better than the others Look at Leah her love couldn't resist being with Emily and now Leah is part of the pack and has to share thoughts with Sam rather than make a strong woman who overcomes her pain and moves on we get a bitter harpy who can't even be nice to Jake for saving her life when she was being cocky she instead seeks him out to complain how Jake's lovesick dreams of Bella annoy her and then reminds him of how Edward will most likely kill Bella while smirkingEvery one of the books had a mystery Twilight had Edward New Moon had Jake so Meyer tried to spin a mystery with who was making newborns and who is the intruder in Bella's room With the intruder Meyer did a good job confusing the characters with the Volturi option making a decent argument to their possible involvement The newborns receive the same treatment but nowhere as convincing She constantly weaves through the two trying to confuse us while making the characters so dim none consider Victoria as an option until two days before the attack and even then it was accident by rephrasing The mystery was very bad and unlike the other two it was so distant and uninvolved I never felt intrigued especially since I knew the answerOnly read for the sake of the series
