The Host Movie News and Giveaway!

Hey Guys.

So I follow The Host page on my facebook and saw that they just created an official website for the movie.


Now I find myself peddling this book to a lot of my seldom reader friends, who only break their reading fast with popular books like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Gray <--- (I don't understand these people).

Anyway, I think I pre-ordered this during my infatuation with the Twilight Series when I was younger. It came out between Twilight books. I really liked it back then but haven't had a chance to re-read it lately. I decided to make a post  about it because I just sent a copy to my old co-worker who just graduated from her nursing program as the valedictorian of her class (applause applause).

She always complained that school on top of a full-time job and planning an upcoming wedding stopped her from reading for fun (and who can blame her. That's a lot of stuff to do!).  

Jeez, makes me tired just thinking about it, she thinks as she drinks cold coffee she was too lazy to reheat and grabs a Hot Pocket, a meal she had to wait a whole two minutes for. Two minutes!

Anyway, I am really excited about the movie. It looks awesome. (As long as Stephanie doesn't make another stupid cameo...though I wouldn't bet on that). Meyer can be really insightful if she's not writing about vampires. Such as this quote, which I love:

And, yes, the book does include a love triangle but it can't be helped when the main character is actually two people stuck inside one body. Here are the love interests:

I love the choices they made for the characters! This being said that I haven't read the book in a long time but still....Maybe I'll do an updated post when I re-read it.

Lastly, I included a except from the book with a new introduction that I've never even read. Enjoy :)

THE HOST by Stephenie Meyer, the author of THE TWILIGHT SAGA. Read the excerpt. In theaters 3/29!
