Goodreads description--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 beautiful, mysterious Bella is both the most intriguing and unnerving event he has experienced in his long life 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 let himself fall in love with Bella when he knows that he is endangering her life?

In Midnight Sun, Stephenie Meyer transports us back to a world that has captivated millions of readers and, drawing on the classic myth of Hades and Persephone, brings us an epic novel about the profound pleasures and devastating consequences of immortal love.

You guys! I just can't even. I mean how long have we been waiting for this book? I totally gave up on the idea of this ever being completed or seeing the light of day. I cannot even pretend that I'm not thrilled about Midnight Sun finally coming to publication. Thank you Stephenie Meyer! What are you guys waiting on this week? Let me know!

    Nice! I know a whole lot of people are excited for this one. Twilight wasn't really my favorite despite reading the series back when it released. But I'm excited fans are finally getting this book because I remembered when Stephanie said she'd probably never publish it after it was leaked.

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
