Oooooo... THE HOST!!!!!!!!!! Okay, I know y'all have had some iffy feelings about the Twilight series, but The Host, I thought, was really good. I got really emotionally invested in the characters and DUDE, did I sob...But I won't say why, of course, but yes. I loved it. I need to read it again, methinks...along with my Symphony of the Ages epics.

Time to get crackin'!

LHUST out.

It's in my TBR pile, actually. Everyone keeps telling me I need to give Meyer a second chance, so we'll see how it goes.

I find that odd. Hmmmm...

Yeah, I have to admit I was a little surprised to see The Host had won, too.
