30 days of New Moon: What to read now?

Earlier this week, Sara, who always contributes the most amazing articles to our site, posted a very detailed article concerning supernatural books that Twilight fans might be interested in reading. Perhaps, with the exception of Twilight, the supernatural really isn’t your thing. Below you will find some notable books that you might enjoy.

In a few short weeks, you will see some changes here at Novel Novice Twilight. Now don’t be alarmed. We will still continue our work covering all Twilight Saga news. Let’s just call these changes an extension of our love of books. But I digress…..

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

Summary from Amazon.com: On her way home from school on a snowy December day in 1973, 14-year-old Susie Salmon (“like the fish”) is lured into a makeshift underground den in a cornfield and brutally raped and murdered, the latest victim of a serial killer–the man she knew as her neighbor, Mr. Harvey. Alice Sebold’s haunting and heartbreaking debut novel, The Lovely Bones, unfolds from heaven, where “life is a perpetual yesterday” and where Susie narrates and keeps watch over her grieving family and friends, as well as her brazen killer and the sad detective working on her case.

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Summary from Publishers Weekly: This clever and inventive tale works on three levels: as an intriguing science fiction concept, a realistic character study and a touching love story. Henry De Tamble is a Chicago librarian with “Chrono Displacement” disorder; at random times, he suddenly disappears without warning and finds himself in the past or future, usually at a time or place of importance in his life. This leads to some wonderful paradoxes. From his point of view, he first met his wife, Clare, when he was 28 and she was 20. She ran up to him exclaiming that she’d known him all her life. He, however, had never seen her before. But when he reaches his 40s, already married to Clare, he suddenly finds himself time traveling to Clare’s childhood and meeting her as a 6-year-old. The book alternates between Henry and Clare’s points of view, and so does the narration

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

Summary from School Library Journal: Anna was genetically engineered to be a perfect match for her cancer-ridden older sister. Since birth, the 13-year-old has donated platelets, blood, her umbilical cord, and bone marrow as part of her family’s struggle to lengthen Kate’s life. Anna is now being considered as a kidney donor in a last-ditch attempt to save her 16-year-old sister. As this compelling story opens, Anna has hired a lawyer to represent her in a medical emancipation suit to allow her to have control over her own body?

Did you know there are films for each of these books? Have you read any of these books, or seen the films?
