Rating: SIX STARS
When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.
This unforgettable tale as told through Edward’s eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward’s past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger?
In Midnight Sun, Stephenie Meyer transports us back to a world that has captivated millions of readers and brings us an epic novel about the profound pleasures and devastating consequences of immortal love.
Saga Twilight is my favorite series of all the time and because of this series I fall in love with reading and I haven’t stopped reading since then. I was so happy when I found out that Stephenie Meyer will publish this year, Midnight Sun. I didn’t think that I will be reading this book. Bella and Edward are my epic couple and I love them and this amazing series.
I loved to get back to this world and to read Twilight from Edward’s point of view. I loved to learn more about Edward, his inner thoughts, his past, his decisions, and the Cullen Family. Alice and Carlisle still are my favorite members of the Cullen family. It was amazing to see the relationship between Carlisle and Edward and how much Edward loves Carlisle and his family.
“My life was an unending, unchanging midnight. It must, by necessity, always be midnight for me. So how was it possible that the sun was rising now, in the middle of my midnight?”
It was interesting to see Bella through Edward’s eyes and to see how he fall in love with her. He loved for who she is and he took the time to get to know her. He loved to know everything about Bella, her likes, and her dislikes.
“I had no doubts. I now knew the meaning of the phrase. The greatest joy of my life was this fragile, brave, warm, insightful girl sleeping so peacefully nearby. Bella. The very greatest joy that life had to offer me, and the greatest pain when she was lost.”
What I loved the most about this series is the way that Edward loved a Bella. He will do and sacrifice everything for her happiness and her well being. He is very patient and loving with her and he will tell her everything about him and his life. He is very careful with her and her feelings. He knows that Bella is insecure in him and their relationship and he reassure her that he loves her and he will be always there for her.
I’m happy that finally, I read Midnight Sun. I was afraid that I will not like this book but I loved everything about Midnight Sun. Edward Cullen was my first book boyfriend and he will always be in my heart. I love Saga Twilight and these characters. Midnight Sun is a great addition to this series and I think that every Twilight fan should read Midnight Sun. I recommend Midnight Sun to everyone and every Twilight fan.

About Stephenie Meyer
Stephenie Meyer’s life changed dramatically on June 2, 2003. The stay-at-home mother of three young sons woke-up from a dream featuring seemingly real characters that she could not get out of her head. “Though I had a million things to do (i.e. making breakfast for hungry children, dressing and changing the diapers of said children, finding the swimsuits that no one ever puts away in the right place), I stayed in bed, thinking about the dream. Unwillingly, I eventually got up and did the immediate necessities, and then put everything that I possibly could on the back burner and sat down at the computer to write–something I hadn’t done in so long that I wondered why I was bothering.” Meyer invented the plot during the day through swim lessons and potty training, then writing it out late at night when the house was quiet. Three months later she finished her first novel, Twilight.
Twilight was one of 2005’s most talked about novels and within weeks of its release the book debuted at #5 on The New York Times bestseller list. Among its many accolades, Twilight was named an “ALA Top Ten Books for Young Adults,” an Amazon.com “Best Book of the Decade&So Far”, and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. The movie version of Twilight will be released by Summit Entertainment nationwide on November 21, 2008, starring Kristen Stewart (“Into The Wild”) and Robert Pattinson (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”).
The highly-anticipated sequel, New Moon, was released in September 2006 and spent 31 weeks at the #1 position on The New York Times bestseller list. Eclipse, the third book in Meyer’s Twilight saga, was released on August 7, 2007 and sold 150,000 copies its first day on-sale. The book debuted at #1 bestseller lists across the country, including USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. The fourth and final book in the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, was published on August 2, 2008, with a first printing of 3.2 million copies – the largest first printing in the publisher’s history.
