Has anyone else ever had trouble getting to the point of re-reading New Moon? I love Twilight so I re-read it before the movie came out to have it fresh in my mind, but I haven't been able to bring myself to re-read New Moon. I got into a depression the first time I read it that lasted for a week and was really intense. I have never had a book affect me that way before. I think it was a combination of things. The memory of how powerful first love is, especially when you are a teenager. Also, it brought back sad personal memories. But more than anything Stephenie just has a powerful writing style when it comes to allowing you to live vicariously via the main character - meaning Bella. I could really feel her pain.
Have you re-read New Moon? Is it easier the second time?
