Eclipse in progress

Ok, I am 3/4 of the way through Eclipse. Trying to read while watching a toddler makes it difficult. In fact, I was sitting on the bathroom floor trying to sneak in a chapter while she bathed and I was so engrossed that I didn't notice her trying to climb out until I heard the splat! and wail! next to me. Mother of the Year right here.

But back to Eclipse. I don't want to put any spoilers on here so I won't go into too many details, but I will say that it definitely isn't as good as Twilight. Don't get me wrong, I am thoroughly enjoying it, but I think mostly because I have grown to love the characters of Bella, Edward, and Jacob, and I just really want to know what happens. But sometimes the whole passionate, intense love thing gets a bit repetitive. Also, there is a scene in which Jacob and Edward are fighting over Bella and Edward is all "She is mine! She belongs to me!" Um, hello? And Bella doesn't even mind! Clearly, she is not a feminist.

Anyway, Sheryl is also reading Eclipse and I am anxiously awaiting for her to arrive at work so we can compare notes. I am sure she will write a much more thorough (and professional) review here, as well.

It's going to be a little while. I haven't even started! I'm sooo busy. :(

I hate you both! My library STILL hasn't gotten our copies in yet...and I'm too cheap to buy it! Although I notice that my local Target was completely sold out of Eclipse last week... although they did have a large display of Harry Potter books...interesting!

The Twilight books are books that you have to keep reading and reading and can't put down, but for me (and I think others), there are parts that just don't flow with me extremely well. But I keep reading.
