The whole Twilight series is AMAZING!!!!!
l think Eclipse was my favourite..........

This is a soap opera, but at least this one had more detail about the vampire world that was fascinating. It also so many cool back stories about the Cullens. It was great learning about Alice and Rosalie and the gang. Bella's mix-up with Edward and Jacob is frustrating to me - because once again she does not do anything to help explain why what is happening is happening. As someone who read cheap little romance novels and knows about vampire lifemate dynamics from other more competent authors - who make a point of explaining it. It's not hard for me to make the jump, but I shouldn't have to explain that possible dynamic to everyone who reads a series.

Out of all the books in the twilight series, Eclipse was one of the more enjoyable ones, in my opinion. I thought this book seemed a bit faster paced than New Moon or Breaking Dawn and contained a lot more action. The second half of this book was especially exciting and will have you reading through it really fast to find out what happens next. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the first two books or to fans of the Twilight movies. I would give this book a rating of 9/10 stars because I really enjoyed it. I would also recommend reading the novella “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” which fits in right between Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

Violent, fresh, and engaging, 'Eclipse' is the thrilling third book of Meyer's bestselling series. Packed with romance, witty characters, and an army of vampires hungering for Bella's blood, this book will not disappoint.

This book.
I think this book has converted me. Until now I didn't ship anyone. I wasn't team anyone.
I'm still not on team Anyone.
But I am certainly not on team Jacob.
The werewolf should be eliminated. He is vile and cruel and manipulative and I officially hate him.
Why. Why. Why. WHY doesn't anyone listen to Bella when she goes on about how she messed everything up?? She DID mess everything up??
Honestly Edward stop. Just stop. Just stop being yourself, it's annoying.
And as much as I couldn't care less if Bella ends up with Edward, I'll be satisfied.
So long as she isn't with the dog.

An awesome book

Aug 18, 2016

While Bella’s whining and complaining was still very annoying, I have to say this one was definitely better than New Moon. For once, there was actually a little bit of a plot in this book followed by some action. You get to see much more of the Cullen’s on this book, which is good. One thing I really don’t like is how bitter Jacob's character gets. You start to really not like his new character, and I seriously hated the way Jacob and Bella’s “friend” relationship turned out. Why couldn’t they just be friends? Edward and Bella’s relationship is still incredibly boring and makes no sense, but what is interesting is learning more about the vampires, hoping to have some of your questions answered. You also want to know more about the wolf pack, and Alice’s past especially, but you are left with reading Bella’s whiny thoughts like you are reading her diary. I would still recommend this book though, because it was alright.

Victoria is set upon killing Bella and she's creating and army of new vampires. The wolves and vampires must unite to protect Bella from the vampires. Jacob is also, continuously making advances towards Bella which neither Bella nor Edward are too fond of. Bella's dad is starting to suspect that something is wrong. 2 Stars

In my opinion, this book is definitely more action and drama filled than the previous book, New Moon. I can relate that perhaps the author was trying to step it up from a moody, emotional book to a more action and suspense filled background, as to show change that Edward's presence can bring. The romantic struggles in Bella's current state are now increasing in complexity as both factors such as Jacob and other vampires threaten her happy mood, following the end of the second book. This love story just doesn't seem to get boring as our brilliant author begins and ends another addition with fun, thrilling chapters to read. Obviously, I recommend this series!!!

Sexual Content: I'm not exactly going to say what, but, well the entire main idea of the book is that Bella and Edward are in love. They're going to get married and stuff, so, if you don't like gooey romance, pick a different book.

Eclipse returns us to the town of Forks and find that nothing much has changed. Graduation is closer than ever (after which, the Cullen's have agreed to make Bella a vampire) and a serial killer is loose in Seattle. Bella cannot see Jacob, her best friend because he is a Werewolf, and due to her ties to the vampires, it would break treaties and bonds made between them.

As the days go by, and graduation gets closer and closer, Bella must choose her fate. She wants to become immortal and be with Edward, but she must give up her family to do so. She is also worried about the change: will she be able to be "vegetarian" like the Cullen Family, and refrain from human blood? Or will her new blood lust cause her to kill innocent people?

The serial killer that is in Seattle turns out to be supernatural: newborn vampires on the loose. This brings up even more issues for Bella and her decision to become immortal. Not that anything could ever persuade her to give Edward up, but it makes the choice more difficult by showing her the realities of becoming a vampire.

Without spoiling the plot: Jacob wants more from Bella too, which makes the choice even more difficult. Must Bella choose between the love of her life and her best friend?

Eclipse is yet another installment of a series I desperately hope will continue. I want to continue watching the characters grow and change, and find out what their lives will unfold to be like. I am already anxious for the next in the series! Write more, Stephenie Meyer!

Bella Swan who we know moved from living with her mom, to living with her dad in forks. The relationship between Bella and Edward seems to be getting stronger, but so does the relationship between Bella and Jake. Although what do you do when an "Old Friend" is coming back to town for revenge, and there are baby vampires loose in Seattle?
