Review: I didn't read this book until at least half a year after Twilight so my memory was kind of dim when I started this.

Now, on the first review I said I was an Edward junkie when I read Twilight.  Well, I still was in New Moon so I didn't enjoy this book that much.

First, I could never understand why Edward left Bella.  Edward always seemed kinda smart, I mean he had a century worth of time, surely he didn't waste it, so I never figured out why he thought it would help to LEAVE.

Also, from the very beginning, I could see the threat Jacob posed to Edward and Bella, making me hate him.

The werewolf sub-plot was kind of annoying too at first.  All I could think was, "Oh great, more names to memorize." but it ended up being ok.

Also, to warn you all, the Volturi scene is super confusing and (at least for me) you probably won't be able to identify who's who even at the end of the book.
