If you are a late 90’s kid or early 2000s you most likely know the twilight movies, and maybe you even read the books. The twilight saga written by Stephanie Meyer struck the world with Edward and Bella’s vampire-human love when the first book came out in 2005. And two years later, the world was amazed by the first motion picture.

Rumors came around in approximately 2007 that Meyer was working in a book titled Midnight Sun which would tell the first encounter of Edward and Bella from Edwards’s perspective. Midnight Sun leaked in 2008, and this action made Meyer stop the writing and publishing of the book.

However, it is never too late. As Meyer surprised everyone with a surprise publishing of the book 10+ years later. Midnight Sun came out on August 5th, 2020, and as a die fan of the saga, I found it fit to write a review of the book. When you first read it you are taken back to 2005, and live the fantasy all over again.

Edward’s first encounter with Bella is seen from another perspective, from a side of hate and even a thriller-like experience. Edward is overwhelmed with his thirst over Bella, he hates himself for having murderous thoughts towards her, and he hates her for making him have these thoughts. Nevertheless, this quickly turns into a love-hate relationship that everyone loves. Midnight Sun takes you back to your childhood, and into this fantasy world filled with some hints with reality that Meyer first created back in 2005.

If you love vampires, love books, or even just feel like reading something, go get a copy of Midnight Sun, you might be able to get a signed copy like me!
