For all you Stephanie Meyer fans out there, I just finished reading the Host and it was really good. When I originally heard the premise, I thought it was going to be dumb. (However, when I heard there were these great books about vampires, I was also not eager to start reading, but I did and loved those.) Right after The Host came out, my sister-in-law was talking about how good it was, so I decided to get it and take it on my trip with me. So glad I did, because it made the drive to Anaheim not seem like 10 hours. Some people don't get excited about long books, but the longer the better and this one and it's 600+ pages did not disappoint. Have fun reading.
