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.

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
