2020 has been absolutely FULL of surprises. Most of them…horrible. But a few have been great, or at least fun to talk about? Such is the case with author Stephanie Meyer’s announcement that she will be releasing a new Twilight book this year. Meyer, whose Twilight series has sold over 100 million copies and spawned 5 feature films over the last 15 years (not to mention indirectly creating the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon), says that the new installment will drop on August 4th, 2020.
This volume is called Midnight Sun, and it’s a retelling of the Twilight story from Edward’s perspective. Work began on the project years ago, but it was abandoned after several chapters of the manuscript were leaked online, which threw Meyer off her groove. But now, at long last, the lost work will see fruition, and the internet is going nuts about it.
15. I said what now?
When asked if he would enjoy the movies were he not a part of them, Pattison said he “would just mindlessly hate it.”

9. Throwing shade
I guess this is from the leaked manuscript?
the funniest thing about midnight sun is how much of a bitchy little drama queen Edward was. like this bit where he doesn't feel bad about reading emmett's thoughts because he reasons emmett is no thoughts head empty a dumb sack of rocks like skdkjfjf that's your BROTHER pic.twitter.com/WDwU1bLYQz

6. Picture this
The story of the story coming out is compelling in and of itself.
POV: it’s Coronavirus season. You’ve been quarantined for 8 weeks. You are bored, lonely, stir crazy, and depressed. The future is uncertain and bleak. But THEN… then… Stephenie Meyer announces the long-awaited release of Midnight Sun. Suddenly everything feels okay. ☺️ pic.twitter.com/TdMSivtGVS

2. Forever 17
I always found this super creepy.
What I most hope from MIDNIGHT SUN is that we understand why the Cullens, who presumably could be doing anything they want, keep going to high school over and over again.

1. The horror!
HE LITERALLY HAS MORE MONEY THAN THE GDP OF HAWAII, HE’S FINE!

Well, now that I’m done getting weirdly upset about how rich Robert Pattinson is, I feel I should atone by actually watching one of this movies. Like Twilight. Or…maybe The Lighthouse. Yeah, The Lighthouse.
How are you feeling about this upcoming book?
