eclipse... the book...

This book is a continuation of the Twilight saga. I still prefer the first book better. The first book seems so much more original. And hey, in this book, Edward and Bella gets engaged!

I like this part best...
"What's wrong, Alice?"
"Don't you love me?" she asked in that same sad tone.
"Of course I do. You know that."
"Then why do I see you sneaking off to Vegas to get married without inviting me?"
"Oh,' I muttered, my cheeks turning pink.I could see that I had seriously hurt her feelings, and I hurried to defend myself. "You know how I hate to make a big deal out of things. It was Edward's idea anyway."
"I don't care whose idea it was. How could you do this to me? I expect that kind of thing from Edward, but not from you. I love you like you were my own sister."
"To me, Alice, you are my sister."
"Words!" she growled.
"Fine, you can come. There won't much to see."
She was still grimacing.
"What?" I demanded.
"How much you love me, Bella?"
She stared at me with pleading eyes, her long black eyebrows slanting up in the middle and puling together, her lips trembling at the corners. It was a heart-breaking expression.
"Please, please, please," she whispered. "Please, Bella, please - if you really love me... Please let me do your wedding."
"Aw, Alice!" I groaned, pulling away and standing up. "No! Don't do this to me."
"If you really, truly love me, Bella."
I folded my arms across my chest. "This is so unfair. And Edward kind of already used that one on me."
"I'll bet Edward would like it better if you did this traditionally, though he'd never tell you that. And Esme - think what it would mean to her!"
I groaned. "I rather face the newborns alone."
"I'll owe you for a decade."
"You'd owe me for a century!"
Her eyes glowed. "Is that a yes?"
"No! I don't want to do this!"
"You won't have to do anything but walk a few yards and then repeat after the minister."
"Ugh! Ugh, ugh!"
"Please?" She started bouncing in place. "Please, please, please, please, please?"
"I'll never, never ever forgive you for this, Alice."
"Yay!" she squealed, clapping her hand together.
"That's not a yes!"
"But it will soon be," she sang.
"Edward!" I yelled, stalking out of the garage. "I know you're listening. Get over here."

Rating for this book: 8/10...
