So, if you’ve been on twitter you’ve probably seen that Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer will be released later this year.
This book is Edward’s perspective of the events of Twilight. I have a few questions. Is this just going to be the events of Twilight? Or will Meyer be rewriting the entire saga? Why now, after all of this time did she decide to publish Midnight Sun?
My issue with this book is that Meyer is essentially writing and selling the same book for the third dang time. We have the OG Twilight, the gender-swapped Life and Death, and now this one. Are fans really going to pay almost $30 for the same story retold from the least interesting characters perspective? I feel like Meyer is milking her fanbase, I’m totally down with her writing something in the Twilight universe, but not the same thing over and over again. That’s so boring.
Also, the cover.
Does it not have a striking resemblance to this cover?
I’ve never once seen pomegranates used on a book cover until Bright We Burn, but suddenly Midnight Sun is using the same concept, and for god knows what reason.
I’m not a fan of Meyer’s sales tactic. Give fans something original and thoughtful, not the same story over and over again.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
