I enjoyed it, but not as much as the Twilight Series.

Those who read it, can you remember anything being wrong with it, too sexual for a middle school library. My librarian has decided not to put Breaking Dawn out in the student section, and is placing it in the faculty resource area, which I fully agree with. I think it is definitely 9th grade level and up. She asked if there were any issues with The Host, and I really couldn't remember any. Would love to hear feedback from anyone who has read it more recently than I have, or multiple times.

I had a hard time getting into it. I was told to keep reading and it would get much better.

Finzmom4- (sorry, don't know your name) I am *pretty* sure it's on the shelves here at our middle school, 6th & 7th grade. We aren't putting out Breaking Dawn either, unless the parents okay it.

I don't think there was really anything sexual about it, though it was definitely written for a more adult level (according to Meyers).
I really enjoyed it, look forward to the rest of the series. I think I liked it better than the later books in the twilight series.

My husband bought me The Host awhile back, I started reading it but couldn't get into it. I think my head was still in Twilight too much lol I may try and pick it up again, I started reading Twilight again but I think I'm going to put it down and try The Host once more. What I really need is another good book to get lost in lol

Give The Host at least 100 pages, and even then for me it still wasn't "Twilight," it was good though.

Did you keep reading? I had a hard time following the beginning, but once I got through that part I really LOVED the book. In fact, I loved it so much I read it again right after I finished it the first time.
