Midnight Sun: The Twilight Prequel

I don’t know why I’m just hearing about this now, but it seems as though there may be a prequel to Twilight called Midnight Sun. Of course, when I was first told of this, I started digging to find out more. Turns out, there is a book that Stephenie Meyer has started writing. It is called Midnight Sun and it is a prequel to Twilight. However, it’s not out on store shelves yet and when it will be is anyone’s guess at this point.

Midnight Sun essentially tells the story of Twilight again but from Edward’s point of view as opposed to Bella’s. Apparently, the book delves into things such as what Edward is thinking while he and Bella are lying down in the meadow, after he’s shown her his sparkly self for the first time, and what he’s thinking when he laughs sometimes in Twilight and Bella is confused as to why. The book is meant to give readers a better understanding of Edward’s character. So, why aren’t we all reading Midnight Sun as we speak?

It was this past summer that the first twelve chapters of Midnight Sun had been completed by Stephenie Meyer when it all got leaked onto the Internet. Stephenie is being very gracious about the leak, saying that it was accidental and that she was not pointing fingers or naming names. She even went so far as to provide the first twelve chapters on her website, in order to be fair to fans that had not received a leaked copy. (You can view it here.) But still, she also says that she just can’t write it at this time. It’s too ‘in the spotlight’ and Meyer says that she needs to ‘feel alone with the book’ before she can complete it. If that’s the case, we might never get to read it! This Twilight-tania is not going to die down anytime too soon. Also on her website, Meyer states that if she were to try to continue writing it now, “James would probably win and the Cullens would all die,” so the reason for the temporary hold of writing the book seems obvious. Still, I have glanced over the first couple of pages of Midnight Sun and it looks fabulous! Integral people associated with the movie, such as Catherine Hardwicke and Robert Pattinson, were allowed to see the manuscript while they were filming the movie, before any of it had been leaked online.

For those that have not yet received a leaked copy and would like to peruse a legally-obtained copy, check it out on Stephenie Meyer’s site and let us know what you think. Just please don’t make copies or redistribute it. It’s not very nice. Plus, it could push publication of Midnight Sun back who knows how much longer!
