Wish List Wednesday (1)

Posted October 27, 2010 by Carmel in / 3 Comments

The Host by Stephenie Meyer.

“The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves–Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.”

Why: I’m a huge fan of the Twilight Saga and am curious to read this book. It doesn’t sound like my typical genre but I really enjoyed Meyer’s writing style in the past and want to give it a try.

  1. I read this one awhile back. it was all right, but it was very very very long. Longer than the longest Harry Potter book if I remember correctly. It was sort of different, some parts might have dragged a little. I read this before I started blogging so I have no review, just my recollection of the story.

    I’m pretty burnt out on Twilight, but I read this when I was still liking it. So it was an okay read. But very long. I would maybe try borrowing it somewhere first, but if you’re really a big fan of Meyer, than by all means by a copy. I still have my hardback that I got as a gift a few years ago.

  2. I have this book, but I have yet to read it. I’ve heard good feedback on it. I know it’s completely different from the Twilight Saga, which is why I’ve been reluctant to read it. I’m a huge Twilight fan as well 🙂
