The Host by Stephenie Meyer

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.

This book was... a pleasant read. It was very original, I, at least have never read such a thing. It was very well written. But, like Stephenie Meyer's first book: Twilight, the main plot didn't show itself until the book was almost finishing.

It then took a while to get to the point. I was always interested though. I liked Ian better than Jared. Jeb and Jamie were my favorites. I liked Mel too (the body). She's feisty and smart.

Anyway, I don't recommend it if you want some action packed reading. It's for a couple of rainy and relaxing days.
