Books: Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

A few weeks ago, Stephenie Meyer's newest book, Midnight Sun was partially leaked onto the internet. Though she urged her fans not to read it as it was a rough copy full of errors and changes, we couldn't help ourselves (We typically have no self-control, especially Sammi when she's around food...) and we devoured it in a few days, and then read it again a few days ago for pure pleasure.

The draft is of a companion book to Twilight but from Edward's point of view. (Twilight is from Bella's point of view, if you're in the dark on this issue.) We really enjoyed Twilight the first time around, but that was nothing compared to Midnight Sun. We wondered how much new content there could be, already knowing the plot of the book, but already (the draft is about halfway done) there have been several surprises. Additionally, we have renewed respect and admiration for Edward, and some of his murky chivalry has been explained. We love this draft and it makes us lick our bums in anger that Stephenie may never finish this incredible manuscript. Finish it! Please! Do it for the bitches!!!

You can read it yourself here.

Quick vote: If you enjoyed the Twilight Saga, you will adore Midnight Sun. But you may want to read Stephenie's disclaimer found here before you delve. Happy reading! (Also, if you haven't read any of the series, for doggie's sake, don't start here!)
