The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

It's official, I will read anything from the Twilight Saga. After learning that The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is available for free online, I've been dedicating all my spare moments to reading it and thoroughly enjoying it.

This novella (less than 200 pages!) describes a newborn vampire, Bree Tanner, who is being trained in an army that will ultimately attack the Cullens, known as yellow-eyed old vampires in the book. I love that Meyer writes about the life of "normal" vampires--the ones who have no respect for humans. After finishing, I found myself to be more intrigued about the lives of the characters. I would love to read a novella about Jasper's history and Esme's and Alice's. Not only is there obviously a huge audience for more novels in this vein, but it is a seed idea that has so much potential. We're on summer break now, so I had to call a few students to let them know to check out Meyer's latest work online. Still, I'll be ordering a hard copy for everyone who didn't get to the internet fast enough!

    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your sweet message. It means a lot.

    I love your header 'I chomp through books' - me too. Just read six on holiday! So many other worlds and lives to transport yourself into...


What say you?
