The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer
It took me a long time to get around to this novella. I sort of lost interest in Twilight after Breaking Dawn, a book with which I have a whole lot of issues. But I figured I might as well read this for the November Novella challenge. It was a fun, fast read. Kind of interesting to see how Victoria and Riley created and trained the newborn army and the battle from the other side. It provides a little more motivation for the Volturi in Breaking Dawn and, of course, we get to meet the vampire that Carlisle tried to save. Bree is a sweet, some what innocent girl and it is sort of tragic reading about her already knowing her fate. The "romance" was too short to really make me care and I really only interested in what was going on elsewhere. The character that I wish we would have had more on was Fred, but he provided an interesting idea to the series. So all in all, it wasn't bad.
