Get ready for back-to-school with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Okay, let’s face it. No one wants to study when it’s summer vacation. And that’s especially true this year, with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in theaters and plenty of Edward, Jacob, etc. on the big screen to keep us thoroughly distracted and dazzled. But the truth of the matter is, school’s going to start back up again this fall whether you want it to or not — and it’s always a good idea to go back prepared, particularly if you’ve got standardized tests like the SAT coming up.

Well, good news.

You can study for back to school and tests like the SAT while still immersing yourself in the world of Edward and Jacob — thanks to the latest study guide from Brian Leaf: Defining Eclipse.

This is the third in his series of books designed to help students study vocabulary while reading Stephenie Meyer’s books. The release of Defining Eclipse couldn’t be more perfectly timed, either.

Once again, Leaf employs his clever strategy of combining the world of Twilight with education (and we’re HUGE fans of this concept here at Novel Novice Twilight). Defining Eclipse culls vocabulary words from the pages of Eclipse and then applies them to exercises designed to teach students the definition and usage of the words. Leaf uses references to Eclipse itself, as well as other pop culture references, as devices to help students remember what they’ve learned.

Some examples? In his definition of the word satellite, Leaf references Renee’s description of Bella & Edward as orbiting around one another. Or when he uses Victoria’s behavior throughout Eclipse to define the word deranged. Other pop culture references range from Mad Men to Dr. Seuss to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

So in between trips to the movie theater for multiple viewings of Eclipse, stop by the book store and pick up Defining Eclipse by Brian Leaf. And if you need more study tools — grab copies of Defining Twilight and Defining New Moon!

A fourth book, Defining Breaking Dawn, is due out this fall.
