The Host......Awesome!!!

Stephenie Meyers new book The Host.....what did I think about it???? Awesome...Amazing!!! 624 pages I read in 2 days and could not put it down. The second day of reading I started at 7:00 PM and finished reading at 1:00 AM. It was one of those books that I just HAD to know what was going to happen!! Sleep was not going to get in my way.

So since I am horrible at describing what things are about I will just give you the description off of Amazon lol:

The author of the Twilight series of # 1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake. Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

I really would love to tell you my opinions and thoughts but since Cherise(my reading buddy from work) just started the book I will not spoil it for her. So more to come in a few days. I am sure she will also finish it!!! If anyone has read it....please comment and let me know what you though!
