Second book in the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
So, Bella and Edward are happy, life is as normal as it gets, but then on Bella’s 18th birthday, at the Cullens’ place, Bella gets a paper cut. Nothing big, but they are vampires, so Jasper starts… trying to, like, attack her, so Edward gets all defensive, and shoves Bella out of the way, and she falls into these glass plates or something, and there’s glass stuck in her arm and her blood is going everywhere, so of course, all the others, including Edward, excluding Carlisle, start running out the room so they don’t attack Bella. Carlisle is a doctor, so he fixes Bella up and Edward takes Bella home.
On the drive back to Bella’s place, Edward is really quiet. Bella goes, did I make you mad? Edward gets really angry at this point, telling her that it’s all his fault, and Mike Newton would be healthier for Bella, and he should be stronger, and he’s basically blaming his existence, because he’s being quite pessimistic and being, like, it could have been so much worse, and I’m not healthy for you. He also refuses to stay with Bella, and goes away that night.
Over the next few days, Bella hopes his bad mood will pass, but it never does. And one day, Edward tells Bella to take a walk in the forest with him, after school. Bella has a bad feeling about this, but she goes. Edward then tells her, “Bella, we’re leaving.”
Bella thinks this means she and Edward have to leave, but really, Edward means he and his family is leaving. Bella gets really upset and emotional, and tells him to stay, but Edward goes, I don’t want you anymore, and Bella (so stupid) believes him. So Edward goes, and Bella gets lost in the forest looking for him, later found by Sam Uley (sp?). Edward’s leaving turns them both into a wreck, but when Bella finds Jacob…
Okay. Umm… honestly, this was the slowest and most boring of the saga; I had trouble getting through it, and it’s definitely my least favorite. It moves really slowly, and it’s just not as gripping as Twilight. I was a bit annoyed when I read it, as I was getting all, like, oh-i-can’t-wait-for-the-next-book and then New Moon comes out, and I’m just bored. Ages… 12ish, again, I think. The third in the saga is ECLIPSE. The movie for New Moon is out.
