I love the host but for me twilight would win hands down. I guess I like vampires a lot more than I like souls :)

The host is really good, but twilight is my favourite.

Yes, definetely!
I loved both Twilight and the Host, I think they are equally good even though they're so different. I think it might be to do with my Team Jacobness, but I enjoyed the romance a whole lot more in the Host, probably because I like Ian and Wanda being together but I don't like Edward being with Bella. However, I also love the supernatural vampire/werewolf thing, which makes Twilight more complicated. I don't really like reading about traditional vampires and werewolves now, because I want them to be like the Twilight ones :)

Definitely. The style of writing is quite different from twilight, but I think it would still appeal to twilight-lovers.
The storyline is in some ways similar to twilight, there's a sort of love triangle, and some of the characters are similar to twilight. It's very well written, even though it's long, I think it's worth reading.

I second that, it's a must read! Although I found it hard to get in to at first.

I love the host! In fact, new moon is my favorite... Host is second! Then Twilight!

I just love Ian... and Wanda. It's like Bella and Edward without the vampirism.

It's great! I didn't find the beginning hard but I understand why people would say that. It's like so much detail to have to take in about the souls.... but I found it very interesting.

READ IT! Like Twilight, you won't be able to put it down.

I actually think The Host is written better. I think the love story was much more believable and it brought out much more emotion in me. Unfortunately, throughout 97% of the book, it brought out sadness. In Twilight, I thought the speed and intensity at which Bella and Edward fell for each other seemed somewhat unbelievable and not well described. Maybe it could have been if it were as long as the Host was. But, I have listened to Twilight a million times and I have no desire to listen to the Host again ( I don't read, I do audiobooks). I loved it but it was too depressing. The depression is completely crucial to the story and shouldn't change, but I really don't want to experience it again. I like listening to Twilight and feeling happy and smiling at the banter.

The Host is definitly worth reading it's better than Breaking Dawn hands down (I HATED BD) but thats just my opinion. Stephenie's writing definitly matured and its SO well written.
