This summer we had the incredible experience of spending 3 months in the south of France. It was great and I wouldn't have missed it for anything. Unfortunately for me, we left the same day that "Twilight: Eclipse" was released in the theaters. I really wanted to see it, but since I knew I would have to wait, I also waited on reading this book:
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer is a short "novella" written from the perspective of Bree, one of the newborn vampires. I had heard it would give extra insight into those newborn vampires that make such a big appearance in "Eclipse" and I thought it would be good to read just before seeing the film. Well, since I had to wait to see the film, I waited to read the book.
It's very short- like the author says, "a novella"- and it gives a look into the newborn life. I enjoyed it. I think it makes a nice companion to the original Twilight books. And I love that Meyer donated $1 from the sale of each book to the American Red Cross. A win for everyone.
