I read this one cover to cover the day it was released—yes, I am a die-hard Bella/Edward fan! In this sequel to Twilight, Edward decides it’s far too dangerous for Bella to remain near his family, when a paper cut causes one of the Cullens to almost lose control. After the Cullens leave, Bella sinks into a deep depression. The only solace she finds is in her friendship with Jacob Black, who happens to be a werewolf, and arch-nemesis of Edward and all vampires. Bella is faced with the painful decision of whom she belongs with. While New Moon isn’t as fast-paced, or romantic as Twilight, it does end in a way that makes the reader crazy with anticipation for the third book in the trilogy.
