Midnight Sun (The Twilight Saga #5)

Midnight Sun (The Twilight Saga #5)

by Stephenie Meyer

ebook, 216 pages
Published by Little Brown (first published August 28th 2008)

Midnight Sun is the much anticipated retelling of Twilight from Edward Cullen's perspective. An unedited partial draft was illegally leaked onto the internet in 2008; consequently, author Stephenie Meyer put the project on indefinite hold.
Shortly afterward, she posted a letter to her fans on her website including a link to the entire partial draft of the book so that those who wanted to read it could do so legally and with her consent; see URL for more information:


Dear Stephenie,

Please finish writing this book! I can't blame you for choosing to stop writing after being so betrayed, but for my own selfish sake I so wish you would finish it!

It was intriguing and fun to read Edward's perspective on things. I've read Twilight... well, more times than I'm going to admit so I didn't think I would be so disappointed when the story didn't continue- but I was! There's so much detail that fills in how Edward and his family interact behind the scenes and how Bella shakes up the mix. Not only did I enjoy seeing Edward's perspective but also hearing everyone else's thoughts through Edward. The only thing that could make it better would be for there to be MORE!

5/5 stars
