Hostess with the Mostest

Stephenie Meyer Tackles the Adult Sci-Fi Market
Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga vampire series books (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse) were all very difficult to put down. The fourth and final book in the series, Breaking Dawn, is sure to be another runaway bestseller and is due out on August 2nd. Twilight, the movie, starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson is also due out December 12th.

While you are waiting for the Twilight Saga's last chapter to morph into summer reader madness, try Meyer's new adult sci-fi book, The Host. The plot centers on a fairly typical sci-fi book theme: alien society takes over humankind. Yet Meyer folds in rip-roaring adventure story and (sigh) just the right amount of romance.

The Host is nothing short of another great book from the Hartford-born(!) Meyer. Enjoy.
