Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog.

I read the Twilight series when I was 16 and I remember when the draft for Midnight Sun was leaked online. A schoolmate actually got her hands on some of it and was distributing it to interested parties at school. I was so glad when I heard the official full book was coming out, although it has taken me 2 years to get to it on my tbr.

SUMMARY

When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

This unforgettable tale as told through Edward’s eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward’s past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger?

Review

A lot of us will be familiar with the Twilight saga from Bella’s POV, if you read the book or watched the screen adaptation. A story of an ordinary girl who moves to live with her father in a small town and falls in love with a mysteriously intense boy. Those of us who read the books will remember Bella’s struggle to convince Edward that loving him wasn’t a bad thing. We would have watched the progression of their feelings for each other, as well as the acceptance that perhaps her being a part of Edward’s world wasn’t the worst thing. Now we get to see Edward’s love progress and his frustration at not being able to read Bella’s mind throughout his courting her, his struggle with who he is; what he has done in the past and how he thinks that will impact Bella negatively.

I gave 4 out of 5 stars because of nostalgia. I loved that when reading Midnight Sun I didn’t have Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart in my head, I saw the original Bella and Edward I envisioned when I first read Twilight. I loved reading everything from Edward’s POV and I wish I can get every book after Twilight in his POV, especially New Moon.
