It’s been such an insane year that I wouldn’t blame you if you’d somehow missed the bombshell news that after over a decade, Stephanie Meyer finally released a new book in the Twilight series.
While it doesn’t cover any new ground story-wise, it does flesh out the core of the franchise by retelling certain events from Edward’s perspective. And it’s pretty wild.
So what do the people of Twitter think of Midnight Sun? Let’s find out.
15. The time has come
What’s old is new again.

8. Hard to read
I’m sorry, this is nonsense.

7. The perfect cast
Like so many geniuses he went unappreciated in his time.
i’m reading midnight sun and so far all it’s done is solidify how perfect robert pattinson was in twilight (2008). he was the only one who saw edward for the oblivious melodramatic emo kid with no social skills that he was. and we wouldn’t listen.

6. Be still my heart
Nobody gave you permission to bring in all these feels.

5. A tail of revival
There’s nothing in this world or the next that can’t be fixed by a doggo.

1. A matter of perspective
Just you wait – she might surprise us.

Honestly, love it or hate it, it’s fun to just have something like this to focus on again. Good ol’ vampire romance trash. It’ll always be there for us in the end.
Have you read Midnight Sun yet? What did you think?
