I love books, mostly young adult!

The Host - Stephenie Meyer This book was the biggest emotional roller coaster in a book I've read in a very long time. I think that [a:Stephenie Meyer|941441|Stephenie Meyer|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1269985304p2/941441.jpg] has done something totally different than her [b:Twilight|41865|Twilight (Twilight, #1)|Stephenie Meyer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1307515757s/41865.jpg|3212258] series, which I didn't finish past the first book. Personally, it feels like two different authors could've have written the two books and it shows how diverse Meyer actually is. The characters are also amazing. The beginning of the book is sort of confusing until I figured out how it was working. Wanderer (or Wanda) and Melanie both have different personalities that both show through through, even though they are in the same body. Some of my favorite parts are when they are aruging internally and no one can figure out what they are doing. I also love the two guy interests; Ian and Jared. Ian is so lovable and reminds me of a mix between Four from [b:Divergent|13335037|Divergent (Divergent, #1)|Veronica Roth|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328559506s/13335037.jpg|13155899] and Peeta from [b:The Hunger Games|2767052|The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)|Suzanne Collins|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358275334s/2767052.jpg|2792775]. Jared took a little longer for me to connect too, maybe but once I did get to know him more I enjoyed his character and his strength. The plot is very well thought out and the way it is written make total sense. Don't let the page number scare you from reading it because there is never a boring chapter! I felt every emotion during this book, happiness, sadness, anger. I highly suggest this book to anyone who likes science fiction, dystopian books, and action.
