The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

I finally found the time to read the Eclipse Novella The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer.

All I can say is I'm so glad that I opted to read the free version rather than buy a copy. You can still read the free version here until July 5.

But unless you are super bored, I wouldn't recommend it. It was dry and plot-less. I got about half way and I didn't understand why I was reading it.

What's the point of reading the story of someone who was dead before the story starts. And I don't mean dead as in undead. If you have already read Eclipse you know she dies. What was the point?

Why did Stephenie Meyer see the need to write this story but refuse to finish Midnight Sun despite the urging of her fans?

Needless to say I didn't like this story, if you wanna know more about it you can read my first post about it here.

FB Monthly Reading Group

Last night I decided that I wanted to join a book club. They don't have one here, not one I can find anyway.

So I went to facebook and created one. Anyone ( with FB account ) is free to join. I will pick a book each month, members are encouraged to suggested one, and post discussion questions about book. I will also continue to blog about what is read and try to link the two pages together.

For now you can go here to join or just check it out.

The Book we are reading during June is The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck.
