Stephenie Meyer - The Host

The Host – Stephenie Meyer
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of 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 not from my usual paranormal/supernatural genre, but from the Sci-fi genre. Only reason I read it was because I was curious as to what Stephenie Meyer would come up with after the Twilight series of sparkling vampires living off of animal blood.
The story is about alien invasion, but not the kind of story where some hero has to save the planet and humanity from the alien invaders. It is more about a girl holding on to humanity and about the nature of love for friends and family. It’s also about taking back control of her own body and emotions.
All in all it was a great book – even if there were no vampires or werewolves in it.
