Well I bought the new Stephanie Meyer book the Host (she's the one who wrote the Twilight books) Anyway it's a 619 page book. I started on Sunday and got to page 120 then yesterday I read the rest of the 500 pages. I read in between doing laundry so I didn't neglect my family too much. I loved it! Her writing style suites me very well. She has short chapters so you can put it down for short periods of time and not be cutting it up. I usually hate romance books and I love science fiction and she puts just the right amount of both to make it fun and interesting. Theres a little crying too just be warned- at least for me but I'm a crybaby. It may seem really long but it is easy to read. I recommend it highly.
