New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
So I read this one shortly after Twilight and even though it's been a few months, I felt it warranted a review. Now having completed Meyer's whole series, I can even more appreciate this book. However, it is the "Empire Strikes Back" book, if you will, the middle child. It's the most depressing of the four, mostly because, Edward is missing for the majority of the novel. Sure, his absence creates extensive growth in Bella and allows her time to befriend Jacob Black. But Bella's depression does grow tiresome and leaves one wondering, was she ever happy before Edward Cullen? All in all, great addition to the series. This one has some of the most action-packed sequences, especially in the last third of the book.
