Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that takes 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 (Max Irons), 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.

The Host was released March 29th, 2013 and stars Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Rachel Roberts, Stephen Rider, Emily Browning, Jake Abel. The film is directed by Andrew Niccol.

    This is one of my wife's favorite books, it would make her day to get a signed copy, she has read it and re-read it probably a hundred times. She deserves a signed copy as a fan, a school teacher, a great mother and a good wife.

    My girlfriend and I have been going out for awhile and I have plans to propose to her, since I do not have a lot of money I think a copy of her favorite book signed by her favorite author would be the perfect way to make up for the ring not being very expensive.

    Gosh I would died for "The Host" book signed by Stephanie Meyer. I think she's the ultimate of all time authors. "The Host" is such a phenomenal Novel. I cried reading this book;don't want to give too much away if someone had not read it yet. Jamie & relationship with the soul/Melanie brought tears during my reading then their was Walter.. and than Jarred so many great characters. I stayed up all night reading it through the morning hours could not put this book down.. absolutely Stephanie Meyers did it again its the most amazing book. Stephanie Meyer is such an amazing writing her descriptive/ adverbs blows me aways how she describes her details.. I hope she continue writing I am the biggest fan of Stephanie M. I would be honor for such a book... The Host has taken my soul.... wink ;-)

    I am a huge twihard I LOVE twilight with all my heart but my ultimate favorite book is THE HOST. I have read this.book 6 times (i keep a record on all the books I read) I cant get enough of it. Every time I read it and it says that she cringes away from some one I find myself acting that little part out to see how she feels like. I find this book amazing and persuasive. I usually eat hot cheetos and now I eat regular cheetos just because melanie liked them and I also tried dipping french frys in my milkshake :). I would love to have a sign copy of the host its my all time favorite. I have all the twilight saga books but I cant find the host in stores any more so I have an app that contains all the books of stephanie meyer. Please I want this so bad I have never EVER won a contest before this would mean the world to me and it would be the BEST 18th birthday present ever :D -thank you

    I read A LOT, so I don't use up valuable time and reread books. However, I have read this book twice already and may read it again before the movie premier. Something about the book moved me. I like it even more than the twilight series. Therefore, I would

    I am a very dedicated fan to Stephanie Meyer! She is a great author and brings new stories into the world creating a new direction of characters into the world so us, (the readers), can envision the stories plot, peak and conflicts... She has created many stories we all love including, The Twilight Saga and now coming up The Host and I hope I can get this great opportunity to receive a signed copy of The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I would love to read The Host because Melanie Stryder can relate to me... she creates a strength that she didn't seem to have before so she can fight off what is destroying her mind (Wanderer the invading alien in her mind)... she has a will to survive and keep going... and also has the strength to not let Wanderer take control of her.

    "It's not the face, but the expressions on it.
    It's not the voice, but what you say.
    It's not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it.
    You are beautiful."
    Why I think that I should get the signed copy? well... I LOVED the book.
    The Host is one of the most enjoyable books I have read. each time I read the book I've cried. This book was so captivating, so entertaining. It is an emotional ride from beginning to end - all 631 pages.
    It stayed with me long after I read it.
    I loved the complax plot and the uniqe characters.
    I crave for more. I hope that one day Stephenie Meyer would publish another book...
    (not to mention that I can't wit to see the movie... I think that Saoirse Ronan would be great as Melanie and Wanda!)
    Signed copy will mean so much to me.
    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win!!!
