Recommended Read: The Host

Best Blogger Tips
If you like to read than I am sure you have heard of the Stephanie Meyer craze in Canada (and I believe in the U.S. as well). I work at a book store and not a shift goes by without hearing "Do you have Twilight?" a dozen times.

I myself have not read the Twilight series yet. But from what i've been hearing you cannot put the book down once you start reading. And since i'm in school right now I do not want to be entranced by 4 massive books for a week or more (I cannot handle anymore distractions!)

Anyways, I did read her book The Host, before I had even heard of Twilight. And I am not the fastest reader but I read that book in just a few days. I loved it! I'm also not into scifi or fast paced books, but this one was cool.

At first it was a little confusing but a few more pages later you clue into what she was describing. And boy does she have an imagination!

Near the middle of the book it gets a little slow (it wasn't dragging on) but I like that sort of thing too.

This was one of my favourite reads. I really enjoyed it, please read it! Give it a try even if you think it is a little weird, it may pleasantly surprise you.

Here is a description of the book from The Host official website.

"Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love. "
