The Host by Stephanie Meyer
The book wasn't bad. I just could not get into it and thus it took me forever to read! It is a big book and I felt like maybe she should have cut some stuff out because it just was soooo LONG and not gripping me that I came to hate it a little.
I know it sounds weird but it is about these aliens called "souls" that take over human bodies here on earth. The main character "Wanderer" or "Wanda" has lived many lives on many different planets in many different bodies. But this is her first time on Earth. And her "host" Melanie is not very cooperative of her body being taken over.
Melanie never completely goes away and they eventually become "friends" I guess you could say. Melanie's thoughts and feelings are so strong that "Wanda" starts feeling them too. This leads to them go look for her brother Jamie and her love Jared. They are in hiding because they do not want to be taken over by the souls.
There is so much that happens and it was a pretty good story. I can't wait to see the movie. But I definitely didn't love this book just because it took me sooo long to get through so I only give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
