A Giveaway and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner Review

So, have we all bought and read Bree Tanner?!  

Trix and I went out and purchased it at midnight Friday night and before the weekend was up, we both had it read cover to cover like any good Twi-hard would do.

Here is my date for the night, Fancy Pocket Edward.  I thought about taking Casual Eddie, but Fancy Eddie seemed much more appropriate.  He was cooling down my Seattle's Best for me.  Which I thought was quite appropriate...Seattle's Best and WE were waiting for Bree Tanner...a bad vamp who belongs to a bad vamp army, who does most of their killing IN Seattle.

That is my brain on Twilight.

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is an Eclipse novella by Stephenie Meyer.  It is based on the life of a 15/16 year old girl named, Bree (duh!).  She is party of Victoria's army of bad vamps.  Their sole purpose for being created is to fight against the Cullens.  Through this book, Stephenie gives us an insight into the lives (both lives...mortal and immortal) of a few of the bad vampires.  It helps us to see where they have come from and what their lives are like.  As I was reading the book, I started to create a bond with Bree.  I like her.  Stephenie is wonderful at weaving a love story into all of her books and she did not fail us here.  It had all of the essential Stephenie Meyer ingredients...danger, suspense, love, and a great story line.  It left me wanting more.  I have a "thirst" for more vampire material.

COME ON, Steph!  We need more!
We are Twi-fans, hear our cry!  

Does she not understand what she's doing to us?  I'm generally a pretty patient person, but this is beyond human restraints.  Does she remember that she is dealing with mere mortals here?!  I guess I will just re-read Eclipse for now.  I think it will be fun to re-read it with this fresh, new perspective of Victoria's army.

You know how we love a good giveaway here at TNT!
