Read full description of the books The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella:To be fair, I think if you are a fan of Stephenie Meyer and all her books (including The Host and Breaking Dawn), you will enjoy this novella too. Alas, I am not. Gone are the days when I used to be entranced by the Twilight Saga. I have to give credit to SM for introducing me to the genre of paranormal fiction, but as I read more and more of it, it is getting more obvious how subpar her writing is.
I didn't finish this novella. I abandoned it because it was boring, one-note, lacked excitement, and very wordy without substance. Plus I couldn't stop myself from nitpicking (and it is always a bad sign):
1) Does any vampire actually ever go through a violent and horrific newborn phase Eddie used to warn Bella about on numerous occasions? Because nobody seems to have suffered through it in Victoria's gang, everyone appears to be very aware and at the same time with no sign of remorse or guilt (including Bree and Diego).
2) So, how exactly can you cover up disappearances of hundreds of vamp victims, even if they all are prostitutes and drug addicts?
3) Vampire kissy noises - stone on stone? Eww, and why, Bella, was it really like snogging a statue? And are bad vampires not allowed to go beyond 1st base? Because I don't think Victoria and Riley do, they prefer making vamp "kissy noises." The only reason I am asking this question is because of the portrayal of Cullens as sex-crazed-furniture-breaking nymphomaniacs in Breaking Dawn. Why should newborn teenage vampires be any different?
4) Seeing sparkles evidently causes instant "to-die-for" love?
5) To make vamps want to puke is another special vamp power, right?
6) A couple of 15- and 18-year old newborn vamps, when alone, talk about special BFF clubs, secret handshakes and being ninjas.
Well, I guess I have at least somewhat satisfied my curiosity - I wanted to know if my interest for Twilight could ever be revived. The answer is: No, it can't.
Read information about the authorI was born in Connecticut in 1973, during a brief blip in my family's otherwise western U.S. existence. We were settled in Phoenix by the time I was four, and I think of myself as a native. The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen (+ ie = me). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to Google myself now.
I filled the "Jan Brady" spot in my family--the second of three girls; however, unlike the Bradys, none of my three brothers are steps, and all of them are younger than all the girls. I went to high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, the kind of place where every fall a few girls would come back to school with new noses and there were Porsches in the student lot. (For the record, I have my original nose and never had a car until I was in my twenties.) I was awarded a National Merit Scholarship, and I used it to pay my way to Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah. I majored in English but concentrated on literature rather than creative writing, mostly because I didn't consider reading books "work." (As long as I was going to be doing something anyway, I might as well get course credit for it, right?)
I met my husband, Pancho (his real name is Christiaan), when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts; in fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I can't recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words. This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first "hello" to the wedding; of course, we were able to skip over a lot of the getting-to-know you parts. (Many of our conversations would go something like this: "This one time, when I was ten, I broke my hand at a party when--" "Yeah. I know what happened. I was there, remember?") We've been married for ten-and-a-half years now and have three beautiful, brilliant, wonderful boys who often remind me of chimpanzees on crack. I can't write without music, and my biggest muse is, ironically enough, the band Muse. My other favorite sources of inspiration are Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Coldplay, The All American Rejects, Travis, The Strokes, Brand New, U2, Kasabian, Jimmy Eat World, and Weezer, to mention a few.
