Summary: Eclipse is the most recent novel in the Twilight series. This book picks up right about when the last one left off. Bella is back with Edward and wonders what to do about Jacob. She is convinced that they can work something out in spite of the fact that Edward is a vampire and Jacob is a werewolf making them the fiercest of enemies. Edward refuses to let Bella see Jacob so she sneaks away to see him and eventually Edward decides it’s safer if he lets her go. Worried about how she is while she’s there Edward drops her off and picks her up from each of her visits making it feel like a custody agreement and not casual friendship.

The situation gets more complicated when Victoria, the vampire that’s been after Bella since book one, comes back into the scene and threatens Bella. The combination of problems from school, home, friends, and enemies is nearly too much for Bella and a temporary compromise is reached so everyone can work together to keep her safe and happy. In the end she discovers what Jacob already knew, she is in love with him and she must decide which boy’s heart to break and which to keep.

Personal Notes: Like with Meyer’s other two books I lost track of time while reading this one and really immersed myself in the book. It wasn’t as dark as the second one but darker than the first. I enjoyed the conflict with Bella and the two boys. It seemed like such a universal experience but with the fun twist that one is a werewolf and the other a vampire. I also appreciate how clean these books are, as in very little in the way of swear words and the couples only get as far as kissing. It’s definitely something I would recommend to anyone and I know it won’t upset his or her standards or morals.

    I can’t wait until the fourth book comes out. Honestly, she could have ended it with this third one and I’d be happy. But now I can’t wait to see what happens with the “big event.” August 2nd is going to be a crazy day for Twilight fans!

  2. Josette Says:

    I enjoyed reading this one more than New Moon. Yeah, I liked the scenes where Jacob, Edward and Bella are in to see how they’d cope with one another seeing that both guys are in love with her! Really suspense-filled. 🙂 Here’s my review of Eclipse.
