BOOK REVIEW: THE HOST






Continuing my goal to read a new book every month, I decided to read Stephanie Meyer’s book The Host which premieres in theaters this month!
The Host is a story about an alien race called Souls, which take over the Earth and its people. The book focuses on one soul, and her struggle to overtake a human who refuses to cooperate.  The soul, named Wanderer is inserted into Melanie’s body and has high hopes of being able to access her memories and find out where her other human friends are hiding. However, when Wanderer is inserted, Melanie is partially conscious within the brain and bombards her with memories of the ones she loves most, Jared and her brother Jamie. Wanderer begins to develop an emotional attachment to these characters and is convinced by Melanie to go find them out in the western desert.

I really did enjoy this book. There were some parts that were a little slow and hard to follow along with, however the book was very suspenseful and gave an interesting outside perspective on the human race. Stephanie Meyer, known for writing the Twilight Series, did a great job of connecting you with the characters and leaving you wondering what’s going to happen next.
March 29th is the official release date for The Host and I can’t wait to see how they portray this on the big screen. Have a good recommendation for my next book read? Leave a comment and let me know!
