May 4th will forever be a day in history of being the day that 2020 was saved. On this day, we found out about the next installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, a book we thought that would never see the light of day.
Here’s a full list of facts of what we know about the book so far: (as time passes, I will keep updating the blog post so keep this page on your bookmarks if you wanna be updated on the latest information for Midnight Sun) Updated: Monday, May 11: #9 controversy. The controversy surrounding the twilight saga is 100% warranted. This one of the many reasons of why I don’t like the Twilight saga as much as I use to, but it’s important to bring these issues to light and not divert away from them.
- This book will be published on August 4th, 2020. (Confirmed by the publisher)
- The book will be 672 pages long. That’s longer than Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. (Confirmed by the publisher)
- This book will be told from the perspective of Edward. In this book we will read more about his personal life, and history. In short: This will be the book of twilight, but told in Edward’s perspective. From the summary given by the author, it suggest that we will read more about
- This book is going to be a modern text of Greek mythology’s Hades and Persephone epic.
- The book will different than the original leaked manuscript. That’s just a given. The publishers will make sure they change Midnight Sun so that they can get readers to purchase the book.
- It’s being marketed as a prequel to the Twilight series. On Good Morning America, the news anchor called it as a prequel to the series. Maybe we will learn more about the Cullens prior to Bella.
- The publisher’s first round of printing will be 750,000 copies in hardcover and large print.
- As of now, there is no word whether this going to be series or just a stand alone book.
- Following the announcement of Midnight Sun, the twilight saga was brought into light about racist and misogynistic tropes within the novel. Controversy sparked on Meyer’s portrayal of Native American culture and her non-diverse characters.
As of right now, this is the book cover that they are going with. I believe this book is so odd and weird, but it does the job of capturing your attention. The cover also has to do with Greek mythology’s Hades and Persephon, the story that’s inspired Midnight Sun.
This is also one of the books in which I don’t care about the book cover looks like, I just NEED to have this book in my hands.
