Blurb from Goodreads:

As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

 I felt the need to reread this series before the film came out so instead of starting with the last one I thought why not reread the whole series?

This cover is one of my least favourites from the series as it's just a broken ribbon. Although I don't feel as though it makes sense to the series I do love the composition as it makes the cover look less plain.

Eclipse isn't my favourite of the series but it's also not my least favourite either so I was a little more excited to reread this one than New Moon. I love that there is a bit of action in this book although that doesn't come until closer to the end. I also love that it makes me laugh especially in a couple of scenes I was laughing out loud. There is more to the romance in this one where it's more of a love triangle and yes I could see the draw to both of them but it was a bit too predictable honestly who else was she going to choose?

Bella was just as selfish maybe even more so in this one and for most part I didn't understand where she was coming from. Edward at the beginning I was actually getting annoyed with as he just seemed far too controlling which wasn't very nice to read. Although he does get better and in the end I understand him. Jacob I loved just as much as New Moon and I really did feel for him for the most part anyway as he did get a bit annoying towards the end but again I understood where he was coming from. I like that we got to see more of the other characters in this one as I think they make the book that much better especially Emmett!

Overall a good book but it did have it's annoying moments.
