Book Banter -- Eclipse

Title: Eclipse
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Genre: YA/paranormal
Length: ~640 pages
Plot Basics: Bella Swan is rapidly approaching her graduation day, which means she's getting closer to being able to be with Edward Cullen forever. But Bella misses the friendship she once had with Jacob Black. As she reconnects with Jake, Edward and his family must come to an uneasy truce with Jacob's pack to protect Bella. And Bella discovers that love can take many forms.
Banter Points: Word Nerd wishes for once that she was a teenage girl so her gushing about this book and series was more age appropriate. Again, Word Nerd loves these characters, finds the plot completely compelling and wants Meyer to hurry up and write the next one! This is a great entry in the world of vampire/human/werewolf love triangles. The emotional depth and rawness experienced by all the characters is great.
Bummer Points: Word Nerd sort of wishes things turned out a little better at the end for one of the characters (not saying who/why so spoilers can be avoided...)
Word Nerd Recommendation: If you like YA fiction or you like vampire fiction, these should be on your TBR list.

If I can finish reading about Homer Wells, this is the next one on my list. And I've been waiting FOREVER to read it!
