December RBRC: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Hi there,

My apologies for the delay in post. The electric cuts continued throughout 2 days, but now all seems to be running well again.

My book for the December Recycled Book Reading Challenge is: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. In my mind, this book falls into the romance and supernatural genres. The romance genre is not something that has ever appealed to me. However, I do sometimes get sucked into a good sci-fi or supernatural drama.

I think that this is part of The Twilight Series of books.  I have never read or watched the Twilight saga, so I really don’t know what’s going on here. While it is difficult to start reading in the middle of a seemingly complicated series, it is not impossible. I surely missed much of the characters background and the build-up to the story. But the actual storyline was ok. I think that this book is more fitting for the younger crowd, teens probably, as it seems a bit more angst-y (Is that a word?) and less … logical.

As far as this particular book goes, I had a very difficult time following it. There didn’t seem to be a cohesive, logical plot. I’m sure that the lack of clear ending was because it is part of a series. I would recommend this for teen readers, but not for the adult bookworm.  I know I’m giving the hard line on this one, but I just wasn’t excited about reading it.

If you would like to join my monthly RBRC, we would love to have you join! The basic guidelines are just to dust off one old book and read it in a month. Post your RBRC post on the 1st of the month, and let me know somehow (comments, ping, linking) and I will link to your post on my upcoming RBRC post.

Thank you for reading!

  1. I’ll be the first to admit that I actually enjoyed reading the Twilight series. Sure, it was poorly written and was filled with cringe-level teen angst. But I almost felt like it was so bad that it was good? However I doubt I would have liked any of the books read out of succession.

    • Charlotte, it is super cool of you to leave this comment. So bad its good? I love that! 🙂 Reading it on its own was a mistake, it was just ….confusing.
      Happy 2019! 😀
