The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner - Stephenie Meyer (book review)

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is a novella which is comes off of the book Eclipse which is part of the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Having not read this book in a while I decided to pick this up and found I loved it as much as I did the very first time I read this when it first came out back in 2010.

This novella is about a girl called Bree Tanner who has been created by Victoria and been living with Riley as well as other new vampires who are being raised to fight the Cullens. However, they are unaware of this. As Bree starts to question what Riley is telling her and the other vampires she is being raised with she finds herself making friends with Diego which is someone who is very close to Riley while also finding herself safety with a boy named Fred who has his own special ability.

As a fan of the Twilight saga I find this book a really easy read and a story which while it is separate in ways is a very nicely linked with the Eclipse book. I do like how when you are reading from Bree's perspective her view is the only one in which you care about and you forget about everything around you and that is happening in the rest of the Twilight Saga till the very end when they link together. This book does make me question however what happens to Fred at the ending and makes me wonder if there will be a book dedicated to him which I hope there will be in the future.

This is a book which is good for vampire lovers as well as those who love the Twilight Saga however wants something that is slightly to the side of what is happening in the main saga. For those who are also not wanting to read a large book and are looking for something small this is a perfect read. I can't wait to read more by Stephenie Meyer and follow her on her writing career.

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
