Two sides to every story...
Well guys, the new Stephenie Meyer novella, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, hit bookstore shelves everywhere June 5, 2010. I'm sure you all know, I was there bright and early to snag my copy. I'm a barrel of surprises, I know.
And although I love Twilight series and The Host, I have to admit, I wasn't too sure about this book. Yet, I still bought it regardless because lets face it, Stephenie Meyer is a writing prowess. The way she spins and weaves her words into stories, and stories into novels, and novels into reality is magical.
[WARNING: FAN GIRL ALERT! FAN GIRL ALERT!!]
I just ... love her. (In a non-creepy way, of course.)
Here's a short synopsis from the book jacket:
"Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, super human reflexes, and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood ... life before she became a vampire.
All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch you back, don't draw attention to yourself, and above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn't know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out.
Then Bree finds an unexpected friend in Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they know only as her. As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagined, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trust. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?"
Sounds intriguing, right?
Anyway. I'm about half way through this 178 page novella (I'm having to restrain myself, otherwise I would have read it in one sitting) and I'm loving it. I even find myself wishing and hoping that Bree will somehow escape, and run away from the newborns (with Diego, of course!!). Sadly, we all know what happens to poor Bree in the end. And even though I do know the ending, I'm still excited to see what's going to happen. Because just like the book's promo says, "Every story has two sides."
So, if you're a Twilight fan, or even if you're not, be sure to pick up your copy of: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. And in doing so, you are not just getting a fabulous read but also helping out the American Red Cross. One dollar from each book sold will be donated to the American Red Cross. What's better than that?
Oh wait, there's more. If you go to BreeTanner.com, for the first 30 days (June 7 - July 5) you can read The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner for free. Yes, you heard me right. FREE! How cool is that? So even if you don't buy it, you can still enjoy the awesomeness of this book.
Now what are you waiting for?? Enjoy!!
