I just finished reading The Host. Loved it. Part if it may be due to the fact that I haven't taken the time to sit down and read a book for quite awhile now...but once I started, I couldn't put it down. I even packed it up on our last backpacking trip even though it was the hard back and weighed like 5 pounds. So to get to the point...I would totally recommend it. Ps...is probably more of a chick book.
