New Moon (Twilight #2) by Stephanie Meyer

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning....

Legions of readers entranced by New York Times bestseller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural spin. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

First line:
I felt like I was trapped in one of those terrifying nightmares, the one where you have to run, run till your lungs burst, but you can't make your body move fast enough.

Basically Bella is in a comatose depression. She's just going through the motions Her father doesn't know what to do with her. Her friends just pretend she isn't there. And why is this? Because Edward left Bella. He told her that she was just a passing fling and left her in the fetal position in the middle of the woods.

So Bella spends the whole book yearning for Edward and thwarting advances from Jacob. I actually kinda like Jacob. At least he's not stupid and insecure like Bella or suicidal like Edward. I thought he was cute and funny.

I strongly dislike this book because Bella gets on my nerves. Also, I felt like there were a few things that went unresolved that should have been resolved in this book. After Edward leaves, one of the main focuses of the book is that Victoria is hunting Bella. So as the tension builds around that I'm expecting there to at least be a little bit of resolution there. But no. Edward thinks Bella is dead and tries to get himself killed. Bella rushes off to save him and Victoria isn't really mentioned. That whole story line built up for nothing. And yes, I know it will likely be resolved in the next book, but when it's part of the main story line, there should be a little bit of tying up loose ends.
