The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner Review

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella (Twilight Saga)

This novella is written from Bree’s perspective. I thought it was interesting to read what happened when she became a newborn vampire, since the books of the twilight saga don’t focus on their needs or their reactions, leaving us with little knowledge regarding their behavior. Despite I already knew how the story ends (as some of you who, already read the saga) found the story enjoyable.

I really liked to read about the battle between the Cullens and the newborn vampires from a different perspective.The story was darker and full of entanglements. Bree is always questioning the propose of the creation of her coven and her story becomes a mystery she’s determined to solve.

Another fun part of the book is that you are introduced to new characters, like Diego, a newborn vampire that becomes the romantic interest of Bree. Stephenie Meyer manages their story very well leaving me wishing they had more time to spend together on the book.



  1. Ooh interesting. This is the first review that I have read of this book and I think it sounds quite good actually. So maybe I will give it a go though I had decided not to.

  2. Nice review. :).. I think the book could have been better. I've read the saga. I expected something touchy and heartbreaking, but it wasn't that good. Stephenie Meyer was unable to create a bond b/w the readers and bree. So I didn't feel much for her when she got be-headed.

  3. Cool review! Alot of my friends have read this, but I'm not sure if I will or not. I'm one of those anti-Stephanie Mayer people who still indulge in the occasional Twilight related thing. (I love the movies!)


  4. I love Twilight, I really do. But I don't know about this book. My best friend read it and told me it was really good and now I read your review and I think I need to give it a try. I just don't like that I already know the ending. ;)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. It makes my day and I read every one of them. ♥
