My first reader contest and trust me, it will not be my last. I am excited to be able to provide my fellow readers with the opportunity to win a copy of Stephenie Meyer’s latest, bestselling novel, The Host, which released on May 6, 2008 by Little, Brown. The publisher has provided me with three copies (3) of the completed novel to give away to readers. The HOST is #1 on the Publishers Weekly’s Bestseller’s List* as well as #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List*. The synopsis of the story is below and an excerpt is provided for you here.
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.
Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.
Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time
