Right now the "Booking" world is all in a titter over the author Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series and now The Host. Have you read any of the books? Thoughts?

Blogger Dar at Peeking Between the Pages is giving away a copy of The Host here and you can read her review here .

Blogger Lori at Lori's Reading Corner is also giving away a copy here.

I'm still amazed that there are so many book bloggers who are willing to take the time and effort of having contests and giving away some great books. Thanks!


  1. I actually just picked up Twilight for the first time yesterday in Borders and read half of it in one sitting. Unfortunately couldn't afford to buy it so that's all I've read so far :) but I have to say that I was surprised - it actually does live up to all the hype about it. It's YA fiction, of course, and the writing therefore isn't stellar, but for its genre it's very very well-written and deeply compelling. I would recommend it. (in fact I'm dying to get my hands on a copy now...)

  2. From all I've seen and heard, the Twilight series is exactly the sort of vampire fiction I would never, ever read. I do have "The Host" on my wishlist though!
