The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner, by Stephanie Meyer

As many of you know, I'm a Stephanie Meyer junkie. You might interpret this as being a Twilight junkie, but I'm not. I don't love all things Twilight. I don't want my own personal Edward. I don't make believe I'm Bella. I'm not going to name my first-born Jacob.

But I do love reading Ms. Meyer's books - all of them. I love The Host. I love the Twilight series. And Stephanie Meyer's new book - The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner - is no exception.

The only sad thing about this book is that the ending was already written in Eclipse; Bree, the main character, dies at the hands of the Volturi. I wish I could change the ending, but so does Stephanie Meyer. At least we both agree on that.

This book isn't really a stand-alone. I wouldn't recommend it if you haven't read the Twilight series since the ending won't make much sense.

My Rating: 7- Great. This book is worth reading AND recommending.

I listened to this book on audio and loved this reading format.

(I think the cover art is pretty clever considering the ending of this novella).
