The Host

The Host: A Novel The Host: A Novel by Stephenie Meyer

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really really really enjoyed this book and amazingly my hubby did too. We love it when we both like the same book.

I wasn't a huge fan of the "Twilight" series, so this was a breath of fresh air to all the romance. This storyline was just so much more believeable to me.

It's a good book to make you grateful for what you've got and it makes you think about the beauty of just being human and living on Earth.

View all my reviews.

appreciate this review! Because of you, I will read it. I wasn't impressed with the twilight series either, but once I got over the fact that it was a light read and it was written for tweens I quickly enjoyed it. In fact, my entire family read it except for the two younger ones.

I am a little suprised...I couldn't ever finish reading it...I kept putting it down. could have actually been the mood I was in...or was real busy...I don't know. I will re-visit it!

Glad to hear that you liked it.

When I get in the reading mode again... I will give it a go. I was not into Twilight either.

I really liked this book, too. I liked that it made me think of all the "bad" things that go wrong in our world and how I would like it to be, without the host invaders;)

It is very different from Twilight- and I like the Twilight series. It is the only fantasy I have ever read and liked. I usually don't finish the other fantasy series books. I guess I am not grown up:P

I liked this one a lot too. I hope she does more in the series.
