The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner - Stephenie Meyer

Tuesday, June 29, 2010
Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood... life before she became a vampire.

All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don't draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn't know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out. 

When I first heard about this book being published, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. In some ways I felt like SM was milking the Eclipse release and in others it made perfect sense.

I'm not a huge fan of how SM writes, but I thought the plot of this was good and there wasn't a dull moment. I enjoyed learning about the newborn vampires behind the scenes and everything they had to do to get there. I did feel some sympathy for them, because they were so brainwashed.

If you're looking for more on the Cullens in this novella, they don't appear until the end and there isn't much between them. It's more the story and friendship between Bree and Diego, and Bree's adjustment to being a newborn vampire. I still really enjoyed this and was happy to have even the littlest bit about my favorite leech family! ;)

Now she just needs to write one about the Wolfpack. Sam/Leah maybe? I'd love to hear Leah's story.

I loved the book. (:
But you are right, leah's story would be one to read, but i think it would be kind of annoying with the whole sam situation.
