eclipse...(slight spoiler)

I am disappointed in Eclipse. It wasn't as good as Twilight and maybe a little better than New Moon. The only thing that kept me reading was the wishful thinking that something "major" was going to happen between Edward and Bella. I wasn't interested in the Indian legends and only partly interested in Jasper's story, although I enjoy anything Cullens-style. I read this book in two days and not because it was thoroughly enjoyable, but because I was waiting to read Edward and Bella taking their relationship to the next level ~ and you know what I mean by 'next level'. My disappoint is because it never happened in the way that I thought it would, but I was pleased at their commitment to each other in the end.

I hate that Bella has "other" feelings; that is completely heart-breaking to me (in Edward's defense). Although I'm not surprised by her in this sense, I can't help by fall harder and harder for Edward. He IS the perfect boyfriend! There are some small steamy parts that I really enjoyed and wished had gone further. It's nice to have seen the movie Twilight and have a face to put with Edward's character - it allows reading these books all the more 'tasty.' Lastly, someone needs to put a muzzle on that dog - he's quite annoying to me now. I have a feeling I'm not going to like him in Breaking Dawn.

I'm going to start reading Breaking Dawn today so wish me luck that my wishes come true! Talk soon.

Phew. Every time I come to your blog and see that pic of Edward kissing Bella... Let's just say that I shall be taping my face to the monitor in that area. LOL Phew.

I know what you mean about wanting them to 'kick it up a notch' but I think with the author being religious & it being considered a teen series... I don't know. I am definitely in the 'who cares about Jacob' camp but like him as Bella's friend. I had forgotten about the Jasper info--I'll have to go and reread that. My son is finally saying (he's nearly 15) that he wants to read the books.

Erm, I mean taping a PICTURE of my face to the monitor!! Though should you post a monitor sized photo of Edward, there's no telling what might happen. ;)
