Okay, Stephanie Meyer is definitely a household name. We're all familiar with the Twilight series, but did you know that The Host is her first adult novel? It would make an interesting selection for a book club - and the reading group guide will be included in this new trade edition.
From the publisher:
"Now available in the trade paperback edition: New Bonus Chapter and Reading Group Guide, including Stephenie Meyer's Annotated Playlist for the book.
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, didn't expect to find its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
As Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who still lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she's never met. Reluctant allies, Wanderer and Melanie set off to search for the man they both love.
Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the essence of what it means to be human."
Get a head start - read an excerpt of The Host. And here's a sneak peek at the new bonus chapter!
THE HOST debuted at #1 on The New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list and remained there for more than a year. Meyer’s first adult novel was not only a huge commercial success with more than 2 million copies sold, it also brought a whole new audience of readers to Stephenie Meyer. Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST, appeals to rabid Twilight Saga fans and readers of classic literary suspense alike.
Movie rights to THE HOST have been optioned by Nick Wechsler and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz, the team that produced the film of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Andrew Niccol of Gattaca and The Truman Show will write the script and direct.
Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, I have three copies of The Host to giveaway. Open to both the US and Canada, no po boxes please. To be entered - have you seen any of the Twilithg movies or read any/all of the books? Ends Saturday May 29th at 6pm EST.
Have read just one of the books only.
I have read the entire series, like, three time, I loved it so, so, so much! I saw Twilight twice (even though I hated it) and New Moon once (that one was much better). The movies are suck-ish. but the books are incredible! Anything Stephenie Meyer writes is sure to be great!
Although I haven't read any of the Twilight books, I've heard all about them from my granddaughters. I would love to win The Host for them.
Thanks for the givaway
I have read all the twilight books and i have seen the movies although the books were better i thought esp the ones in the begining.
I haven't done either the movies or books, but the movies are in my Netflix queue.

I read about 20 pages of Twilight before deleting it off my e-reader. So... no need to enter me for this one (I have a PO Box, anyway).
I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail, darling. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.
I've read and enjoyed all the books!

I've watched both movies but haven't read the books
I've seen both movies and read the books. I'm not all hyped up about the Twilight books, although I loved them. I think I enjoyed The Host even better than Twilight because it was much more mature.
I would love a copy of The Host for my bookshelf and to read again and again.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I read all the books, saw the first movie and thought it was horrible. They did a better job with the second one thankfully.
I have only read Twilight and thought it was okay. Recently read that The Host is much different and better - so would be interesting to see if I'd like it better!

I'd like to get this for my daughter. She's read all the Twilight books and seen both movies. She has posters and jewelry of both. This would make a nice birthday present for her next month.

I enjoyed the movies but didn't want to invest in the books. I've heard great things about The Host and I'd love to read it, thanks!
I have not read any of the books (but I'd like to!) and I have onloy seen the first Twilight movie - which I enjoyed more than I expected to.

The Twlight books I've read are great.
The Twilight movie was AWFUL. New Moon was a little better. I'm not sure how long it will take me to see Eclipse. I have read the entire Twilight series several times and love it, but The Host is my absolute favorite of her books. I already own a dog-eared copy, but I'd love to win this one for my sister who is also a huge fan.
I haven't seen any of the movies or read any of the books.
I have read the book but haven't seen the movie
No I have not read the books and I have not seen the movies
I have read all four books and I own and have seen Twilight and New Moon on dvd.
I've seen the first movie

I've read all the books and watched the first movie. We've bought the second one but I haven't watched it yet. Thank you!
I've read all the books and watched both movies. Is it wrong that I love watching Jacob? omg!
I've seen Twilight but wasn't particularly impressed with the way they produced the movie. Books are always much better.
I haven't seen any of the movies or read any of the books. email@example.com
I have read three of the books and seen the first movie. They're great!
Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

I have read all the Twilight books. The might have been written for the teen group, but we older folk liked them too :-) I actually read the complete series 3 times because I enjoyed it so much! Then I couldn't wait for Twilight the movie....it was a disappointment.
I would love to win The Host! Thank you for the giveaway.
Sorry, I just re-read the instructions and saw that this contest has ended. I didn't mean to post on a contest that was over.
