Book #77 was New Moon, the second book in the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. The back of the book reads:
Legions of readers entranced by Twilight are hungry for more and they won’t be disappointed. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. The “star-crossed” lovers theme continues as Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy’s reigning royal family of vampires, the Volturi. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.
I enjoyed this sequel to Twilight, maybe a little more than Twilight itself. I find myself preferring Jacob to Edward, and feeling pretty bad for him by the end of this book. And though I do like this series, I don’t particularly like Bella much — I find her quite selfish. I’m curious to see where the series goes. Bella’s not a vampire yet, but she sure wants to be. Will she get her wish? Or will Edward get his way?
