During my vacation I read The Host by Stephenie Meyer. It was pretty good. Not fabulous, but entertaining, and actually pretty thought provoking. I have no idea whether the author intended to include any symbolism, but it was hard not to read those things into it when you know the author's religious beliefs. The story is really about what it means to be human. My mom and I had fun discussing it.Next I read These is My Words by Nancy Turner. I loved it! I highly recommend it. It's exciting and romantic, and clean. It's written in diary form, and the character is uneducated (hence the title) so it took a little getting used to, but once I did I was totally into the story. I was excited to find out there are two sequels.
