I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

The Host (The Host, #1) by Stephenie Meyer

The Host  - Stephenie Meyer

15/5 - Wow!! What an author Stephanie Meyer is, she starts with the already over used plot of vampires vs. werewolves and gives it a major modern twist and now she’s tackled aliens – again with a major twist. Alien invasions on Earth have been written about many times over but this story is different. Different type of aliens – less malevolent than previous stories, written from a different point of view – sympathetic to the alien’s situation. For most of the book I couldn’t see how there could be a happy ending – either Wanderer is extracted and dies because there are no willing hosts available or she stays with the current host who fades into the background permanently. But of course Meyer is the queen of seemingly impossible happy endings and so it all worked out perfectly in the end. Within a few chapters of beginning the book I found myself wishing there could be a sequel or even another series (a la Twilight), but that doesn’t look likely. Am now looking forward to her next book, I’m sure it will be another bestseller, no matter what the plot is.
