If you only knew how much I fangirled when I saw this book was finally happening! Twilight has always been such a huge part of my life, that I cried when I finally got to hold this book in my hands. Twi-hard heart bursting! I've always been a reader but nothing got me going like Twilight did. This series, really made me fall in love with reading and all things #teamedward 

If you don't know, Midnight Sun is Twilight told from Edward's point of view. But the story is SO much more. It's like a new book. It has so many more scenes and things in it, that we've never experienced before being inside his head. Like in Twilight, he disappears for a little while and you get to see where he goes. And a little more about his story. A deeper understanding of his thoughts and how much he really desires for Bella. 

Midnight Sun was just a stunning read and reminded me again why I love this series, and this world so much. This series means the world to me and not gonna lie, I totally cried at some parts in Midnight Sun. It was just so much fun to be back with these characters. Even though it's a story we know and love, it was a fresh perspective on the events that happen in Twilight. 

Plus, I loved being inside Edward's head and getting his thoughts. Being with the Cullen family. Seeing all the events through his eyes. Hearing how he feels about Bella and watching him watch people. Hearing what people think about  "the cold ones." Such a refreshing aspect to this story. Twilight will forever hold a special place in my heart and I can't wait to see if she will do anymore with this series. 

Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer confirms two more books after Midnight Sun

Stephenie Meyer announces new Twilight book Midnight Sun | Stephenie Meyer  | The GuardianStephenie Meyer's life changed dramatically on June 2, 2003. The stay-at-home mother of three young sons woke-up from a dream featuring seemingly real characters that she could not get out of her head. "Though I had a million things to do (i.e. making breakfast for hungry children, dressing and changing the diapers of said children, finding the swimsuits that no one ever puts away in the right place), I stayed in bed, thinking about the dream. Unwillingly, I eventually got up and did the immediate necessities, and then put everything that I possibly could on the back burner and sat down at the computer to write--something I hadn't done in so long that I wondered why I was bothering." Meyer invented the plot during the day through swim lessons and potty training, then writing it out late at night when the house was quiet. Three months later she finished her first novel, Twilight.
