Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer

Just as good as I thought it would be! ~Sheila

Admittedly, I am a Twilight Junky. I absolutely ADORED all the books… and yes, the movies too. I don’t know what if it was the combination of a Young Adult read (which I love!), with the combo of a magical force (oooh! Double love!) in this case Vampires and Werewolves… but there you have it. I loved it all. I couldn’t get enough.

That said, I was cautiously optimistic when I heard about this book. On one hand SUPER EXCITED that after all this time another book was here and this time from Edward’s perspective – yet we have all experienced the case where someone tries to make lightning strike twice in books and/or movies and in the long run, you wish they would have left well enough alone. #StayOnTop

I am happy to say, I really enjoyed this revisit to Forks, Washington. I mean yeah its a little cooler than I like and the sun doesn’t shine too bright, but I do have friends there. I am still unsure if my love for this book was the feel good feeling of having the chance to be back in that world, or if I really enjoyed it for the story. The world – may never know. Bottom line for me is, who cares. I listened to this on audio and enjoyed the comfy familiarity of the setting. I did enjoy hearing Edwards side of the same story I knew from Twilight, yet from his perspective – his thoughts as he went from loathing Bella, to trying to fight his love for her – the need to be with her always.

Good stuff. IMO.

Twilight Fans, I would love to know your take on this read? Did you have the experience I did, where I kind of hope the whole series is continued this way… or was it just too much like the first book and basically a re-read of a book you may already have on your shelf?

  1. This is definitely on my “gotta get a used copy” list. I loved the books…the movies are….so so

  2. I really liked the book. It’s a perfect companion to Twilight. I loved all his overthinking, because, who hasn’t overthought everything?

  3. Which is more grown up than the Twight Saga. As in there are no young adults in it. I love Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga books. They inspired me. Though Adnama and Alex were in my mind long before. She inspired me to go for it.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
