As with every book in this series, New Moon is HIGHLY addictive. Even though it is by far the saddest book in the series in which I found less exciting than the others, I still could not for the life of me stop reading it. SPOILER ALERT I love Bella as a character and I just wanted to know everything about what she while Edward had left her. I really enjoyed getting to know Jacob Black more and he truly is one of my favorite characters, but he never ever takes Edward's place for me, just like Bella I couldnt forget Edward. The ending when Bella finds him in Volterra was romantic and exciting and when Bella wakes up again back home and Edward is there with her...*sigh* well that was everything I was hoping for and more!
