Online Reading

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella by Stephanie Meyer

For the next month (until July 5th at midnight) you can read, for free, the complete novella The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Click the title or cover to go to the site and have fun reading.

"Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse , and the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion."

I am very excited to start reading this novella. I loved the Twilight series and it is always sad when a story you love ends. I am a bit nervous though about reading this from Bree's perspective. In Eclipse you hate the newborn army so I am not sure how Meyer is going to make us care enough about Bree to make her story interesting. Either way though this should be a fun read and it is very wallet friendly. Also very timely with Eclipse the movie coming out at the end of June.

If you get a chance to start reading the book on the website let me know how you find the reading experience. I like reading on my Kindle but am not a huge fan of reading books off a computer screen. I will do it though when no other option presents itself. (I once read Phantom of the Opera on my computer at a temp job where I was answering phones, I got one call a day for four days, needless to say I needed a distraction.)
