6th Grade Entry - Eclipse

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Alexandra’s entry. Thanks, Alexandra!

Stephanie Meyer
Little, Brown and Co.

Bella Swan, the first person narrator of the Twilight series, continues to develop her relationship with her Vampire Boyfriend Edward Cullen. As she nears graduation and battles with Edward over her desire to become an immortal, Bella soon realizes that the evil Victoria, a vampire with a grudge, is coming with an army of newborn vampires to kill her. The Cullens make an unlikely alliance to fight off the vampires, aided by Bella’s on-again off-again friend and Werewolf Jacob Black. And, in the midst of it all, Edward asks Bella a question that has Bella uncomfortably mad at Edward, but Alice, Edwards foretelling Vampire sister, giddy with excitement!

Bella Swan is not very used to the Vampire lifestyle. It is one of no sleep, endless money and constant danger. These are not good things when you are an accident prone klutz like Bella. Her love for Edward makes her want to be a vampire and live this life no matter what the challenges are that she will face. She wants to spend forever with Edward, but being the loving human she is, she is sad to think of how she will have to leave behind her Dad Charlie and her Mom Renee. Most of all, she is torn because of her friend Jacob, who she thinks she may love too.

What I liked most about the book is the characters. Alice is always happy, enthusiastic and the best girlfriend any girl could hope to have. Edwards love for Bella makes him generous, kind and incredibly protective. He is the real knight in shining armor. The love story of Bella and Edward is really a happy thing to read. Also, the story is so connected, that I worry about how their story will end in the fourth book.

This book and the whole series so far, would be a great read for anyone that likes vampire stories, stories with a great tale of love, stories with werewolves and especially for people who want some Indian history. But, the people who will like these books the most are the ones who like all of this wrapped together and turned into some really great movies!
