However, 1 who knows when that will be? And 2 you guys have waited long enough. Much longer than long enough, actually. Personally, I would be nothing but delighted if one of my favorite authors announced something new for me to read.

No pressure, Laini Taylor. So, I hope this announcement gave you some pleasure and something fun to look forward to. Working on a book for more than thirteen years is a strange experience.

My children have all grown up. My back got weird. Crazy Credits. Alternate Versions. Rate This.

Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Bella Thorne Katie Price Patrick Schwarzenegger Charlie Reed Rob Riggle Jack Price Quinn Shephard Morgan Ken Tremblett Mark Reed Suleka Mathew Paula Fleming Jenn Griffin Garver Tiera Skovbye Zoe Carmichael Norm Misura Owen as Austin Obiajunwa Alex Pangburn Wes Guy Christie There are conversations between the two characters that are only alluded to and skipped over in Twilight , which were fully fleshed out in this book.

Perhaps it's because, in Twilight , Bella was too infatuated with Edward to pay attention to small, trivial conversations.

In Midnight Sun , Edward is so infatuated with Bella that he considers all those trivial conversations vital to her character.

Either way, Bella's personality, her likes, and dislikes, get explored here in a way that wasn't in the original novel.

It makes her less bland. All the other characters are also shown in greater depth in this book, mostly, the Cullen clan.

This is because Edward can read their minds and therefore see their true selves and hidden motives, while Bella's POV was blinded by their beauty and perceived perfection.

Emmett was my favorite because he was the only one aware of the fact that Edward was clearly crazy. I will say this though, it sucks that all the human characters lowkey suck.

I mean, they sucked in Twilight too, we just didn't realize how much. Even Rosalie, who has a genuinely horrifying, tragic backstory of being used and abused and left for dead, is reduced to a horrible, jealous mean girl, and I didn't like that.

In the end, this book was good and I highly recommend it to any Twilight fan. Keep in mind that this is literally the plot of the original Twilight.

Don't expect anything new or innovative, just a fresh perspective. That said, I promise you, this perspective will not disappoint. Still, I must admit, there were points in which the book felt overly long.

I kept waiting for certain things to happen and would get annoyed when I realized how early on in the story I still was, despite having read so many pages this is a page, k word novel.

I was waiting for things to occur, waiting for my favorite scenes to come up and waiting, finally, for the action to happen. It is one of the reasons why my rating cannot be higher than what I gave it.

This book could never measure up to Twilight for me. My love for that book is based on an emotional attachment to the story rather than the quality or general readability of the novel.

Unfortunately, I have no such attachment to this book. While I liked this book, I know that had this not been a Twilight novel, a part of the saga that I have loved for so long, I would not have found it nearly as enjoyable.

And yet, having read this, I somehow feel complete. I have been waiting for this book for a decade, and I am so happy that I could finally get my hands on it.

Midnight Sun , on the other hand, was everything I expected it to be. View all comments. Morgan This review it exactly how I felt! Oct 30, PM.

No, TWILIGHT won't be winning any female empowerment awards, and it's all too easy to make fun of whether it's vampire baseball, sparkling in the sunlight, or the infamous misuse of the word "nattering".

But it was a book written by a woman for young girls that somehow became overwhelmingly popular and a cultural phenomenon, and women really didn't get to have a lot of things like that.

Even if the heroine was a klutz with zero self-preservation. I remember there was a lot of drama because someone had leaked the chapters, and they were circulating the internet, and Meyer was mad and said something like, "I'm not going to write this anymore because if I did, I'd let James win and kill off all the Cullens!

Not yikes to Meyer but just yikes because I honestly felt so bad for her at the time, getting all that hate and then someone screwing her over like that.

I'd probably want to red wedding my own characters, too, at that point. So I read the 12 chapters on Meyers' website and went on with my life Anyway, people took in this news and basically lumped in with the general craziness of but they also had Thoughts.

I had Thoughts. Namely: 1. And why does that cover make me so uncomfortable? It looks soooo sexual. Just kidding. That was a trick question because we all know vampires never left.

Like, yikes. If you thought he was problematic and patriarchal in the firsts four books, grab a blowtorch and some mace, because he takes stalking and problematic behavior to serial killer heights.

And what makes it worse is that he knows what he is doing is creepy and he literally does not care. Another thing that I found really funny in this book is how Stephenie Meyer really tries to give us a reason as to 1 why every single heterosexual man with a functional penis pants after Bella in the books and 2 belatedly and retroactively tries to infuse her with a "personality.

Bella dramatically understates her own worth and Edward finds this so charming, compelling, and appealing that he has taken it upon himself to act as appraiser.

Which is But gross is a recurring theme in this book, just as another recurring theme in this book is every attractive woman who actually knows she's attractive being repeatedly looked down upon, rejected, and shamed.

Woo, feminism! Through Edward's eyes, we're told how selfless and good Bella is. They have a conversation that definitely wasn't in the first book and felt about twenty pages long I think it was actually ten in which Edward asks Bella all of her favorite things, and she answers, so we learn her favorite flower dahlia , candy black licorice and sour patch-- is she an old lady??

I must say, this book felt about a thousand times longer than it actually was. In addition to the long odes to Bella courtesy of Edward's being psychic, we're also treated to long and waxing odes of how rich, attractive, and amazing Edward is, courtesy of his being psychic.

I'm sorry, that's gross. That's just as gross as a one-hundred-and-four-year-old man panting after a teenager. Which is another thing that makes this book creepy.

Being inside Edward's head, we find out just how unequal their relationship is. Edward holds two medical degrees and is over a century old, and yet he doesn't like women of his own age and doesn't like women who have sexual agency they seem to make him feel some weird mix of scorn and shame.

If I was an immortal psychic vampire, high school is the literally last place I would go. I'd be on a remote island somewhere with my own personal library, or travel the world.

I certainly would not be looking at lab slides and writing out prophase, anaphase, interphase. TWILIGHT works because it's written allegedly from the perspective of a teenage girl who doesn't feel like she fits in, who feels like she's more mature for her peers, who feels like she sacrifices endlessly and nobody knows it and she doesn't want people to know it, but also she does.

She whines about attention while craving it, and even though she's annoying, she is also a perfect stand-in for the walking, irrational paradox that many teenage girls and boys, and people are.

It works. And how many of us, told that "things will get better in college" haven't innocently fantasized about a dashing older man or woman who would sweep us away from high school and tell us we're special and also a secret princess or heiress or faerie queen or whatever?

Everyone wants to be special, especially people who are not. Edward is dangerous. He's a stalker, he's a bit of a psychopath, he has anger issues, he's jealous, he's possessive, and he's one-hundred-and-four years old and in love with a teenager, and because of that discrepancy, he feels like he knows what he wants better than she does-- because he's an adult, and she's the irrational, and naive teenager.

In this book, it's no longer romantic; it's creepy. As we see Edward not through Bella's rosy lenses but through Edward's own, we realize just how creepy he is.

So if this was an attempt to rationalize and humanize Edward's behaviors, it failed, because it only served to make him 10x creepier.

But if this was Meyer's attempt to be like, "ha ha! Team Jacob all the way, thanks. At least he's her own age.

The only thing this book really succeeded at was filling in some of the bizarre plot holes from TWILIGHT, such as why the tracker didn't recognize what Bella was right away at the baseball game, and why, between Alice's mind-reading and Edward's psychic powers, Bella ended up having so much bad shit happen to her in this first book anyway.

I didn't ask for MIDNIGHT SUN and I'm not really sure it adds anything of real value to the series, apart from doubling down on the Edward is Creepy vibes from the previous book while trying to ret-con Bella's vapid, schoolmarmish character based on criticism from the first four books.

Only one of those things was successful, though, and I don't think it was the one that the author was going for, sadly.

And yet, I have exactly one note. That note is: there is nothing funnier to me than charlie literally being no thoughts head empty. But it made me laugh.

So thank yo This book is 1, pages long. So thank you, past Emma. To be honest, I really liked this book at first. It almost It would have been devastating to my brand and image to genuinely enjoy a Twilight book in But thank god Stephenie Meyer saved me from herself.

Because this got old very, very quickly. Twilight power rankings - 1 Alice 2 Charlie, the only cop I respect 3 Edward And yet this book still wasn't good.

Being in Edward's head gets old. I can't imagine how he did it for 11, years before creeping on a child.

But let's get out of here before we have to start considering the morals of this series. Bottom line: Don't - Read this book. Do - Donate to the Quileutes.

Dooming herself to the underworld. Is that who I was? Hades himself, coveting springtime, stealing it, condemning it to endless night.

I honestly thought this day would never come and as soon as I saw the book was available, I preordered the hardback for my collection and the audiobook.

Jake Abel did a fantastic job voicing Edward. Absolutely loved it. Yes, this is a Twilight retelling, but this is much longer than Twilight and so much was expanded on.

Plus just knowing Edward's side of things and what he was really thinking was truly a treat! I also have to say, I think Stephenie Meyer's writing has only gotten stronger with time.

I love how Edward talks about reading his families minds and the different thoughts and struggles. I really wish Stephenie would do the whole series in his perspective!

Bella Swan walked into the flow of heated air that blew toward me from the vent. Her scent hit me like a battering ram, like an exploding grenade.

My children have all grown up. My back got weird. The world is a different place. I can only imagine all the things that have changed for you.

But completing Midnight Sun has brought back to me those early days of Twilight when I first met many of you. Throwing proms and hanging out in hotel rooms and reading on the beach while getting the most epic sunburns of our lives.

Two medical degrees, Doctor Sparklepants — you know this could be deadly. Those balance and coordination issues are way more than endearing clumsiness.

Did she have a stroke? Does she have a brain tumor? I mean, a person should be able to walk on a flat surface without tripping for at least a few steps, right?

Did you say TWO medical degrees, Dr. You never considered asking your girlfriend to get a brain MRI? That sight distracted me for a second.

And she loved them. High school Lindsey was a moron. Bella may be one-dimensional, but at least she knows how to move the plot along.

Edward is incapable of doing so. None of his thoughts are snarky or amused, but his dialogue certainly is. But, there were parts in Twilight where he seemed genuinely amused by Bella.

Yet, none of his thoughts reflect that. Thus, it feels patched together. High school Lindsey would already own a pillow case of the cover. View all 58 comments.

I'm determined to finish so I can complain about all and something pages! Aug 05, Nilufer Ozmekik rated it liked it. I wish I read this book 10 years ago.

But it is still flawed and there are still plot holes, logical mistakes. But right now, everything has changed: my taste of music, food, literature, movies completely evolved.

In last 15 years I became vegetarian, yoga instructor and cut the alcohol, meditating daily, supporting Republicans.

Okay, I take them back. It was my coldest joke. See, my tastes are already evolved. Okay, this is another lie! I have to admit this book is great contribution to the series and writing still is obviously so much better.

He is not perfect. He is tormented by his inner feelings: animal inside of him tries to slake his thirst.

Actually we also learn more about her high school friends who were mostly hatable! It is still instant, too quick. The pacing is good but it is still too much wordy.

And of course we already know the entire story. So there is no surprising element! Edward could have killed Bella, imprinted on Jacob which would be my all time favorite alternative final!

So we keep living deja vu, time traveling, remembering our past reading journey over and over again. So it is belated meeting and back to past, tribute to one of the most popular trilogy kind of reading for me.

I had fun to go back and meet with the characters, rekindling my memories. Unfortunately this is not extremely exciting, earth shattering experience for me.

Twilight has it's flaws. This we know. This we acknowledge. It's like one of those low budget soap operas. You know it's terrible shit, but you also can't stop yourself from watching the next episode.

Well that's how it is for me anyway. If you're thinking of picking this up please know that it's basically the exact same story as Twilight book 1 with a few added parts since unbelievably Edw It takes another kind of genius to sell us the same story three times and still get us hyped up for it.

If you're thinking of picking this up please know that it's basically the exact same story as Twilight book 1 with a few added parts since unbelievably Edward is not always glued to Bella's side.

Even though this book took me ages to read, I laughed at all the cringey scenes but also thoroughly enjoyed myself. I got a tad bit annoyed at the sense of deja vu but then again I've read and reread this series waaaaayy more times than I'd like to admit.

I always used to think of Bella as having a personality of a potato. Edward is very perceptive and I liked the things he noticed about Bella's character.

The way he is able to read minds and NOT able read Bella's mind means that he picked up on all her little quirks and sees her in a different light than she sees herself.

He actually made me like her. I've also always been hardcore TeamJacob don't come at me for that but reading from Edwards POV has nudged me just a tiny bit to the other side.

He's more real than he appeared in the other books. I loved reading about his inner turmoil and the way he justifies his crazy actions.

However the dude is still a creepy stalker TeamJacob4evaaaaa. In Midnight Sun we not only get Edward's POV but also his insight and the thoughts he reads through other people's minds.

Which was fascinating!! I honestly don't know how he stays sane. I loved the flashbacks. We got to know more about Edwards early days, more about Carlisle, how Alice and Jasper joined the family and other fun stuff!

Bella is an outsider looking in to the Cullen crew. But Edward's perspective as a member of the family was precious.

Those were some of my favourite parts of this book. Rosalie is one of my favourite characters. Yes, she's a bitch.

But I love it. The more in depth version of how she found Emmet had me almost in tears okay that's a lie.

I was in tears. It was beautiful. It was just so cringe. And it happened so often I started laughing everytime he said it.

Is this book a necessary read? Definitely not. But I'm glad I read it. It's for those of us with a sentimental attachment to these books and these characters, those of us who have been waiting years for Edward's side of the story.

I highly recommend the audiobook. The best part of this whole experience was having Jake Abel and his beautiful voice in my head for hours I swear that sounded less creepy in my head.

He did a phenomenal job at narrating. View all 26 comments. I loved Twilight. Fuck all y'all haters. I've been salivating to read this ever since that partial first draft of the original Midnight Sun got leaked years ago.

But after reading this? I wish Stephenie Meyer had just pulled on her big girl panties and finished it back then. This Edward was too breathy and overdramatic.

He came across as one of those lady-men who would willingly saw his penis off as an apology for scaring you with his boner. The first few chapters were the har I loved Twilight.

The first few chapters were the hardest, because Edward sounded like such a poncy twat that I really didn't know if I wanted to keep listening to his inner monologue.

He was so condescending and obnoxious, it just felt like his thoughts were on a repetitive loop. I am a Vampyre! Humans are Gross! That schtick that got old.

I'll admit that as the story went on, he really did become a lot more tolerable. Gotta be honest though, he was not as charming as I remembered.

One petty reason is most likely because I imagined this super hot guy when I read the book a million years ago.

I can't remember what that dream man looked like now, however, because I have an image of Pattinson stuck in my head.

This is not the image I wanted. The guy who played Edward is one of those rare people who has two faces. I'll look at him from one angle and think, Hey!

He's not half bad! Then he tilts his head a bit to the left? Jesus Christ! It's a monster! That's a skill an actor can use right there.

The whole book was probably a bit marred by those terrible movies and the actors who played the roles. What did they do to make them look that way - paint them with chalk each day on the set?

They were supposed to be pale and attractive, not look like they'd been dipped in white-out. And can someone please explain why half the time they look like they're wearing cheap wigs!?

I can't know for sure how much my loathing for those movies did to taint my viewpoint, but I do know that I preferred the characters that I'd imagined a long time ago more than what I kept seeing this time around.

I get it. This is supposed to be a representation of how you feel in the throes of your first love.

But I honestly don't remember being this fucking dramatic. Maybe I was. I'm willing to admit that I may have forgotten what it was like to think of a man as the all-encompassing center of my universe.

Yeah, yeah. I love my husband This is just a lot of teenage nonsense. They're both virgins who have never been in love or even dated anyone beforehand.

You remember what that was like, right? Me neither. And that's ok. It's part of what's so fun about occasionally dipping my toes back into the Young Adult genre.

You're giving yourself permission to forget reality and pretend that breathy sighs, chaste kisses, and holding hands are what makes the world go round.

You can believe that your love for this perfect boy will make up for the fact that his family are all raging lunatics that you'll be tethered to till the end of time.

At any rate, I finished this for nostalgia's sake. But I can't say that it recaptured any of that original magic I felt when I first read the books.

But I'm a glutton for punishment, so if she makes a New Moon version from Ed's point of view? I'll read that bitch. View all 67 comments.

This is ain't it folks. This really didn't do anything for me. If you know me or if you've been following my journey in re-reading the Twilight series then you know that I have not been enjoying any of these books.

It's been a rough journey, but has also given me better insight to understanding why and how this series is problematic. I won't lie; I was curious about how Meyer would frame this book in context of the original book.

My curiosity wasn't enough to even begin to make me like this book. Let's get the easy part of this out of the way. Midnight Sun is boring.

We literally revisit every scene word for word with Edwards insight tacked on. Her technical writing skills have improved; however, her ability to write a compelling plot has not changed.

Would it have been a better book if it was shorter? For me, probably not because the content itself is still problematic; however, I think it would have been an easier read.

An interesting part of this book is that Stephenie Meyer essentially attempts to re-write the book in a way that attempts to get rid of the critiques that she experienced with the first four books.

For example, I thought Bella was a bland, boring, and insensitive character in Twilight. In Midnight Sun she becomes this well rounded, interesting, and compassionate character.

I'm not sure if she was attempting to paint this picture that Edward was seeing Bella through rose-colored glasses, but it didn't make sense.

There were also scenes in Twilight that were incorrectly translated over to Midnight Sun as if Meyer didn't even attempt to re-read her own work before writing Midnight Sun.

I feel like she attempted to keep the Black family out of this book as much as possible because she received so much backlash for her portrayal of the Quileute tribe.

She still couldn't get it right. First, the imagery that this brings to mind is disgusting. Second, think about the fact that it is a White character saying this.

I don't think that this was appropriate in any world to write that line. Then there is the issue with Edward acknowledging that he is no better than a peeping Tom and that he's a stalker, but continues to stalk her anyway.

It's almost as if Meyer believed that if she acknowledged the behavior then she wouldn't have to fix it. There was also this weird alignment with God and Carlise.

Don't get me wrong Carlise is hands down one of my favorite characters; however, I found it very awkward that she had Edward describe Carlise as this a Christ-like figure.

It was clear that she still wanted to make sure that she wrote herself and her beliefs into the book. There is still a whole aspect of control on Edwards part and the inability of women to be able to define their own lives.

I feel like Meyer intentionally wrote all of the other high school students as villains so that should justify the isolation that ends up occurring between Edward and Bella.

I just didn't feel comfortable with a lot of the contents of the book. There were a few things that I did like about the book including the scenes where we learned more about the Cullens and some of the back story about the final scene.

Was it enough to save the book? Will I be reading anything else in the future? I appreciated having open and candid conversations about these books, but I think, for me, it's time to close the door on this series.

But despite all that, Twilight definitely brought a change to the book scene. Just think about all those authors who started by writing Twilight fan-fiction and how many Twilight fan-fiction stories were "reskinned" and published!

Overall, I have three things to say about this. Before I looked closely, it looked like bugs or something. Anyway, I'm really happy for all of you who adore Twilight that you'll finally get this book!

And I'm really curious about how it will be received. I repeat. Maybe you'll like it? I don't know but I've noticed we have the same feelings towards books, m Paula wrote: "Don't.

I don't know but I've noticed we have the same feelings towards books, most of the time But I'm definitely not reading this. I cannot do that to myself.
