Just in Time for Books Week: A New Intro and Awesome Excerpt from THE HOST!

Just in Time for Books Week: A New Intro and Awesome Excerpt from THE HOST!

By Chelsea Dagger

DUDES: I have a sneaking suspicion that Stephenie Meyer has hacked into the SparkLife mainframe (which is actually just a cardboard box painted to look like a computer and filled with Snickers wrappers, Harry Potter stickers, and my various failed attempts at hand-whittled wands) and accessed our highly confidential calendar . BUT DON'T PANIC: she clearly means us no harm! It seems that she has used her covert knowledge to do something totally AWESOME: release a new intro and a free excerpt of The Host just in time for Books Week! Check it out right here—you're gonna need this knowledge when earth gets invaded by alien souls and we all have to fight for our lives.

THE HOST by Stephenie Meyer, the author of THE TWILIGHT SAGA. Read the excerpt. In theaters 3/29!

Loads of you said that you were huge fans of the book when we posted about the teaser trailer, so we're dying to know: how do you feel about the new intro? Are you crazy-excited of this movie? If you haven't read the book yet, what'd you think of the excerpt?

About the Author
Chelsea Dagger

Since 2010, Chelsea Dagger (known in real life as Chelsea Aaron) has been SparkLife's sweatiest editor. She's currently working on a how-to-kiss guide for teens, and when she's not conducting smooch-related research on her life-size Joseph Gordon-Levitt cardboard cutout, she's eating pancakes, stocking up on industrial-strength deodorant, and destroying everyone at Harry Potter trivia. (EXPECTO PATRONUM!)
