Synopsis:
As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob – knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

“Dream happy dreams. You are the only one who has ever touched my heart. It will always be yours. Sleep, my only love.”

Eclipse is third book for Twilight series and I thought I’d have enjoyed it a little bit more than Midnight Sun. It has been a few years since I read them but I still remember enjoying them more.

There’s so many people complaining about how Edward behaves in this series (like messing with her car) but I don’t really mind his possessiveness and how protective he is as I’m bothered with Jacob. I never was big fan of his because I was always on team Edward but this time around I really saw how manipulative he really is.

“Fall down again, Bella?’
“No, Emmett, I punched a werewolf in the face.”

I didn’t really saw it when I was a teenager but I’m finally understanding why so many people dislike Bella. There’s nothing special about her but somehow these two supernatural being can let her her go and she can be selfish.

I love Charlie in the movies and I get how he’s worried about Edward breaking Bella’s heart again but there were a time or two I wanted to hit him in the head with something. He likes Jacob a lot more for Bella which I get too on his point of view but the fact that he was happy that Jacob kissed Bella against her will and she almost broke her hand for hitting him? That’s not okay. I really hated how in the beginning of the book he lectured Bella when Jacob was the one avoiding her.

All in all I enjoyed Eclipse but I was annoyed af with Jacob and how everyone is defending him no matter what he did. I think I could’ve given the book four stars if I didn’t find it absolutely stupid how suddenly Bella saw Jake as more than a friend without any drama. Edward was being way too understanding.
