    I was born in Connecticut in 1973, during a brief blip in my family s otherwise western U.S existence We were settled in Phoenix by the time I was four, and I think of myself as a native The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen ie me Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to Google myself now.I filled the Jan Brady spot in my family the second of three girls however, unlike the Bradys, none of my three brothers are steps, and all of them are younger than all the girls I went to high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, the kind of place where every fall a few girls would come back to school with new noses and there were Porsches in the student lot For the record, I have my original nose and never had a car until I was in my twenties I was awarded a National Merit Scholarship, and I used it to pay my way to Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah I majored in English but concentrated on literature rather than creative writing, mostly because I didn t consider reading books work As long as I was going to be doing something anyway, I might as well get course credit for it, right I met my husband, Pancho his real name is Christiaan , when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts in fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I can t recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first hello to the wedding of course, we were able to skip over a lot of the getting to know you parts Many of our conversations would go something like this This one time, when I was ten, I broke my hand at a party when Yeah I know what happened I was there, remember We ve been married for ten and a half years now and have three beautiful, brilliant, wonderful boys who often remind me of chimpanzees on crack I can t write without music, and my biggest muse is, ironically enough, the band Muse My other favorite sources of inspiration are Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Coldplay, The All American Rejects, Travis, The Strokes, Brand New, U2, Kasabian, Jimmy Eat World, and Weezer, to mention a few.

    The Host By Stephenie Meyer


    Okay, so I was reading along, and thinking all, hey, this is pretty interesting Not bad, Stephenie And then I got to about page 80 or so, and OH MY GOD THERE IT IS AGAIN, THE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SAPPINESS OH MY EYES MY EYESI just can t do it CAN T DO IT AGAIN Not the older man, and the younger woman, and the 5 page discussion of why they can t have sex yet because NO DEAR YOU RE JUST NOT READY EVEN THOUGH YOU REALLY WANT IT BECAUSE LOOK, YOU RE A GIRL AND YOU CAN T POSSIBLY MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS [...]

    I originally had not planned on even reading this book because the Twilight series instills much rage within my soul, but I was in a dry spell for reading, so I decided to give it a try I have to say I really enjoyed it much than the Twilight series I have seen a lot of people complain about how slow the beginning was, but I didn t really notice It sucked me in pretty quickly It was very clearly a Stephenie Meyer book, though, which did lead to certain amounts of anger and eyes rolling nearly o [...]

    I must be a masochist Why else would I pick this book up in the first place, let alone finish it And it was so NOT worth it To sum up my impressions of this story WAAAAAHHHHHHH WHYYYYYYY This refers to the pointless waste of an entire tropical forest on the printing of this 600 pager in which NOTHING happens I kid you not Well, what else did I expect from a woman who created sparkly virgin vampires Hanging my head in shame In my defense, here is the quote from this trainwreck book Perhaps withou [...]

    It s no secret that I did not jump on the Twilight bandwagon I put my name on the hold list at the library for The Host, however, because I wanted to see if Stephenie Meyer had improved in her storytelling I m happy to say, Yes, she did To a point I would like someone tell me what her fascination is with sappy, overly dramatic dialogue, 17 year old girls and over protective older men who carry them while running Because there are some definite similarities here.I find it interesting that this no [...]

    It s not the face, but the expressions on it.It s not the voice, but what you say.It s not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it.You are beautiful I give this book 5 stars because is just such an amazing book I really, really love it At first sight it looks like it s a book about aliens, but in reality it s about the human kind and it s questioning how much humanity remains in us all It s a book about survival, about love so many types of love loving yourself, loving the planet [...]

    GAH AAAAGGH SODTODSHT AHAAHOSHDTO DSODHTOHDTOHTOSDHTSHHHHHHTHIDSDOIOSHDTOIH Those are accurate phrases, fitting descriptions of my reaction at the end of this book Unfortunately, those cannot be precisely translated into the English language.Holy Crap HOLY CRAP I can t even process my thoughts to write a review for this This book was so stunning, so amazing, so crazy good that I can t even describe it XD I m extremely impressed of Stephenie Meyer This beats Twilight by a long shot it s SO much [...]

    I wanted to like this book than I did to see that Stephenie Meyer can pick a topic not meant for shallow teenage girls and write on a deeper level but I think this book is of the same, sans the vampire excitement I liked the idea an alien soul inhibiting the host body of a girl who doesn t want to relinquish her control and the conflicts that arise, particularly in romance There are some interesting topics, like what defines humanity and are we living worthy enough for the planet we are entrus [...]

    When it comes to reading books that has a film made about it, I tend to watch the film first and then read the book The Host is probably one of my favorite films, I absolutely love Max Irons, I think he s gorgeous, and while I was watching the film, I also couldn t help but admire the actor who played Ian I m a huge fan of Stephenie Meyer, she s one of the authors that made me want to start writing, but I couldn t possibly be as skilled of a writer than she is She s incredible I loved the Twilig [...]

    Aimed at the adult science fiction crowd, as opposed to the Young Adult Twilight fanbase, The Host isn t about science or where the human race is headed, but about what it means to be human, here and now.Earth has been quietly, non aggressively conquered by a kind, pacifist species unable to lie or deceive, who go by different names on different planets in different languages Here they call themselves souls , while the rebel humans who have slipped through the net call them parasites They are si [...]

    Talk about an emotional roller coaster This book was very difficult to rate If someone were to ask me, Was it good I d have to think for a long time and then say, No Well yes, sorta No It was ok But if someone were to ask me if I d enjoyed it, I d instantly reply, Yes Would I read it again Probably not Was it exciting On occasion Was in interesting Very much so, in my opinion Was it weird YES Were the characters well developed After the first half of the book, yes, I suppose.The Host is about a [...]

    Did you have a good bath he says as I come out after only an hour No, I say, recognising that my tone is petulant Why not he asks in surprise, as the answer is usually the opposite I hate the book Nothing is happening Nothing has happened And the aliens who invaded still make junk food This doesn t make sense They don t earn money or pay for anything, but they still make junk food An alien invader who could read the mind of its host would learn to only make food with essential nutrients and stuf [...]

    I just can t comprehend why so many people are rating this book 5 stars Seriously, why I understand we are in love with Twilight, but it s not a good enough reason to support this mediocrity I was extremely disappointed by Breaking Dawn, but decided not to be a hater and give SM another chance So I opened The Host I have to say, I have never had to put this much effort into reading a book in my life If I didn t know who SM was, I wouldn t even bother to read after page 10, it was that boring and [...]

    Not a bad sci fi story A little like the Twilight series some of the formula poured over into here I feel like the creativity level was a lot higher as Meyer was working with an alien species of her own creation and not necessarily the myths and legends of the vampires and werewolves.My only issue is that it seemed to drag on a bit at times This was only compounded by its length This is one of those books that I think could have benefited with a trimming.I think this book was advertised as Meyer [...]

    I am having so much trouble reading this book, and who am I to judge I am just a lowly reader and spender, not a publisher But there is just something about the writing in this book that is making the voices in my head scream I had the same experience when I read Twilight Ms Meyers is over the top descriptive where there is no need to be If I had to count how many times she wrote, I winced or, I flinched or, I sighed or, Ian sighed I bet it would be in the hundreds She has added TOO many 2 word [...]

    OKAY I TAKE ALL THAT BACK IAN WAS EPIC I LOVE LOVE LOVE JAKE ABEL OMG THE MOVIE WAS SO EPIC I CRIED LIKE THREE TO FOUR TIMES I CAN T EVEN Breath, Saniya, breath Sighh Okay This movie was freaking awesome and I just want to hug somebody right now 3I am so sorry Jake baby You were awesome in it I misjudged you Now I will love you forever Creepy fan girl smile Did You Know 1 Dianna Agron auditioned for the role of Melanie Stryder 2 Shiloh Fernandez, Liam Hemsworth, Kit Harington, Jai Courtney and W [...]

    Final rating 5 5 starsI cannot describe how much i love this book Even though it was long, i still loved every page of it I never read Stephanie Meyer before, but i love this book She really is a good writer The only downside that i had was that i watched the movie first therefore i knew what was going to happen But book was so much better, with informations about Souls, and better characterization And, one important thing you will either love or hate this book.One thing also that i really love [...]

    Unfortunately, the thing that drives me to write today is the poorly written book known as The Host, by none other than Stephenie Sparkling Vampires Meyer Now, I went into this book with lukewarm expectations Many people have said that The Host is actually better written than The Twilight Saga , which isn t really saying much if you really look at it However, I held in my bias and decided to give it a try, besides after Sparkling Vampires how much worse can it possibly get Good Lord I was so wro [...]

    I still l ve this one Wanda is so self sacrificing, and the way everybody hates her and grows to love her is inspiring Totally prefer the book to the movie though

    It finally ended OMG LONGEST BOOK EVER.This could have been an incredible book The premise is AMAZING Advanced aliens who call themselves souls conquer Earth by implanting themselves into their human hosts and taking over their bodies Yeah, it s a body snatcher theme The alien who calls herself Wanderer has lived nine different lives on nine different planets as nine different sentient species Awesome sci fi stuff.I really wanted to like this Duh, Twilight and all.But just imagine the annoying l [...]

    Full disclosure I was not a big Twilight fan I read all the books, I found them ok and compared to many YA titles coming out nowadays, they were actually decently written But The Host is on a whole other level It is a freaking GOOD book Good characters, great plot, nice world building ladaladalada Sorry for being short today, but I am kind of on the run Either way, what I wanted to say is that even if you disliked Twilight, don t give up on The Host It is worth it

    Wanderer has just arrived on Earth and been implanted into her new host She has lived on seven worlds before coming here She is arriving toward the end of the alien invasion when very few humans remain The aliens are known as souls and are a peace loving type that don t know of violence or lying.Very few humans remain on Earth When the remaining humans are discovered, they are captured by Seekers the closest thing to a police force the souls have Once captured, they are prepared for implantation [...]

    I have to say I was not expecting this book to be as good as it was Even though the first 150 pages or so are slightly slow the rest of the book is fast paced and becomes a very interesting read.Would defiantly recommend this book to anyone who is even slightly interested in it

    Edited after seeing the movie I went with my daughters to see the movie adaptation of The Host this evening, and was reminded of how much I loved this book That said, it s as it was with the Twilight books to movie adaptation and the movies didn t do the books justice, and neither did it for The Host, which is one of my favorite stories My point is, please don t let the movie scare you off If you go see it and find the story compelling but the acting not so much, please pick up the book and read [...]

    First read May 26th through June 8th 2013Second read March 2016 didn t keep track Third read July 9th through July 15th 2016I gotta say, Ian O Shea is still too adorable.

    Mrs Meyers and I can no longer be tortured friends Maybe someday I can finish this poor excuse for a novel, but I m going to relieve myself of the misery for now The premise was fine, but the dysfunctional psychological processes of every single character has me truly sick Not to mention that Melanie Stryder, i mean, Bella Swan is essentially the same pathetic female character that we ve seen in the Twilight series I m done I have been mystified by this writer because so very many people adore h [...]

    Voy a conservar la calificaci n original por nostalgia, pero s not ciertas cosas en esta ultima rele da El estilo de escritura no es tan bueno como recordaba lol Le pudieron haber cortado unas 100 a 200 paginas sin ning n problema El romance es casi instalove pero a n as amo las parejitas 3 Aun as puedo decir que es de mis favs de Stephenie Meyer y lo seguir amando hasta la eternidad 333.

    So much potential in this book I don t understand why Stephenie Meyer isn t continuing the sequels and it s been 8 years since this was published I love Twilight Saga but this is better and I m not kidding I have watched the movie first without any idea of the story and I really enjoyed it but my reading experience was incredible Souls are parasitic like aliens invading the humans on Earth making them as their host These souls lived for thousands of years and have taken over many living things b [...]

    I was pretty iffy about this book going in I ve read all of Stephenie Meyer s other books the Twilight series and they re decently good, but nothing amazing I m not big on sappy romances, and I was concerned that this would just be one big huge romance like the others.I was surprised, definitely While it does have romantic elements to the story, it didn t feel like the romance took over the plot and didn t allow for any real story to happen.What I liked the best about this book is how much thoug [...]
