Blurb from Goodreads:

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella could ever have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning...

So with me rereading this series I had to read this one again but this is always the one that I look forward to the least.

Out of the four covers I would say this is my second favourite cover as I love the flower being white with the blood it just looks the most effective.

Like I said this is my least favourite book out of this series as I just think there was far too long and half of it wasn't needed. With me only rereading it I found that I skipped most of the book but I still knew what was going on. There was parts that I loved just as much as the first book but it just wasn't enough to make me rate it any higher. For most of the book I was eye rolling but then the very beginning I enjoyed until that fatal moment then it spiralled from there. There is parts throughout the slow parts where it was really good but it wasn't until about 200 pages left when it picked up making me not want to put it down. I do think this book is better when you read it for the first time but once you read it for a second or even third time it gets a bit too much.

Bella is the most annoying character ever in this book as she is whining for pretty much half of this book which it did get very annoying. I found she was also very selfish and just a drama queen. Edward isn't in this book that much but I did like him maybe not as much as the first one but I still liked him. We did get to see Jacob a lot more in this book and I actually seem to like him more than I did before maybe it has something to do with the film ;)

Overall not a bad book but it was a bit too over dramatic for me.
