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:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
