The host by Stephanie Meyer–Book Club Selection

Most of you guys know Stephanie Meyer as the author of the ever popular Twilight series.  But did you know that she wrote a book before Twilight?  Well she did and that is what we will be reading for the next two months.  I think it is a perfect summer read.

The host


Stephanie Meyer

If you are familiar with the Twilight series, this book is nothing like it.  It is so intriguing and well written.  I recommended this book to my hubby and he really liked it.

You know how I have a nack for picking books that are about to be movies?  Well I didn’t know until I was researching this post but apparently in 2013 there will be a movie made about this book.  So reading it now will prepare you for the movie.

Summary {from the book jacket}

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves – Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met.  As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

This book is a really good read.  Filled with interesting concepts and questions.  I can’t wait to talk about it.  It is perfect to read while your kiddos play at the park or in the sprinklers.  Great summer read.  I hope you enjoy it!!

Thanks for reading,

  2. I’ve already read it…twice! lol Great summer reading and very different from Twilight Series. I love Twilight, but it was fun to read something by Stephanie a little more “grown-up”. I highly recommend it!


    • Heather,
      It was surprising a little from Stephanie Meyer wasn’t it? I’m glad you liked it. Thanks for the additional recommendation.
