New Moon

The second book for the Twilight saga begins with Bella's 18th birthday. She mopes about how her turning 18 will mean she is one year older than Edward when he was turned. She seems to forget the bit about how he has also been around for one hundred plus years since his 17th birthday. This angst paints the backdrop for the entire book unfortunately.

Edwards’s sister Alice plans a surprise party for Bella, despite her insisting she not. As usual disaster strikes for poor Bella. She gets... Wait for it... A paper cut from the wrapping paper on one of her gifts.

Being in a room full of vampires makes this a perilous time, with Jasper (Alice's partner) fighting (and loosing) his urges to eat Bella at the sight and smell of her blood. Edward oh so smoothly throws his beloved out of the way of Jasper only to have her crash through a glass side table, causing more bloodshed.
After this rather colourful birthday party, Edward and the Cullen's fail to show up at school. This has Bella worried until she finds Edward waiting for her at home that afternoon.

Here is where the source of the pity party starts. Edward breaks up with Bella using the excuse that his family must leave due to the towns folk being suspicious of Carlisle’s lack of aging.

Bella gracefully runs off into the forest in her despair and promptly gets herself lost. She almost dies but is found just in time yadda yadda.
Right now you’re remembering how I said I liked the books in my last post right. Well I do, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think some of it is silly or painful. I can say that this book really was the low point of all four of the books. Hence why I’m feeling the need to retell the story, unlike the last review. It’s all padding people :)

In order to heal her hurt and pain Bella befriends Jacob. The poor sap falls for her. The best way to describe how I feel about the relationships with Bella and her boys in this book was best said on cracked.com

This novel thus teaches two important lessons to young girls everywhere:
1) If a guy dumps you and says he doesn't love you anymore, he doesn't mean it. All you have to do is beg and destroy your life to prove that you really love him, and he'll come right back and love you even more!
2) It is perfectly cool to string along innocent but decent guys who are crushing on you and then dump them immediately as soon as your ex-boyfriend reappears, and totally normal if said ex-boyfriend forbids you from seeing your old friend. After all, your love for your ex must be far stronger, because he makes you feel 'alive' and 'dangerous' since he's always on the verge of killing you. And stalking you. We can't really mention that enough.


This book really is all kinds of messed up. It is basically a module for setting up the next book. New Moon creates a deep and meaningful relationship between Bella and Jacob. More pain and thus more love between Bella and Edward. And last but not least a healthy hatred between the two guys in Bella’s life, therefore making her life more difficult.

Oh and it sets up the Italian vampire mafia part of the story The Volturi. They keep the vampires in check and make sure they don’t expose themselves to the human population.

Oh and did I mention that Jacob is a werewolf?

All in all this book was the lowlight of the series. I read it in 2 days just to get it over and done with.
