Day 11: Stand Alone that needs a sequel!
The Host by Stephenie Meyer!
I waited forever to read this, expecting Twilight 2.0, and I regret that. Stephanie, if you ever read this, I’m so sorry for waiting! The host is one of my favorite books of all time! As always, do not judge a book by it’s movie, because a movie could not do this book justice.
The plot, is you don’t know:
“Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.
Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Wanderer, the invading “soul” who occupies Melanie’s body, finds its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
As Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she’s never met. Soon Wanderer and Melanie—reluctant allies—set off to search for the man they both love.
Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the essence of what it means to be human.”
This world has so much more to offer.. so many possibilities to explore. So much more love! Do the humans rise up? Do they take the planet back? Come on Stephanie! Please write some more! 🙂
Check out Tiffany’s Book Hangover later today, and see what she thinks! 🙂
