“If I was given the choice between having the world back and having you, I wouldn't be able to give you up. Not to save five billion lives.”

-Jared to Melanie

Title:  The Host

Hardcover, 620 pages
Published May 6th 2008 by Little Brown and Company

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.

My Thoughts
I chose a quote from this book last week, but from Ian to Wanda.  This week's quote is from Jared to Melanie.  This book shows one of the strangest love triangles I've ever come across.  Jared is so sweet.  I loved him from his and Melanie's first meeting.


  1. One of my favorite quote from the book :)

  2. The Host is an awesome book! I loved Ian and Wanda's relationship better than Jared's with Melanie, but I still thought he was great when it came to Melanie and her little brother. :)
