Twilight author, Stephanie Meyer’s latest book is here. Titled Midnight Sun, the book retells the events that took place in Twilight from Edward Cullens perspective. The last book in the saga series, Breaking Dawn, was published way back in 2008.
The author made the exciting announcement on ‘Good Morning America’ on Monday. She explained how now felt like the perfect time to publish the novel. She also gave fans a look at the cover art.
Meyer greeted the viewers of the show saying, “Good morning, America, and good morning especially to any ‘Twilight’ readers that are watching.” She continued, “My name is Stephenie Meyer and I am very excited to finally announce the release of ‘Midnight Sun’ on August 4. It’s a crazy time right now and I wasn’t sure if it was the right time to put this book out, but some of you have been waiting for just so, so long. It didn’t seem fair to make you wait anymore.”

Fans of the popular book franchise have been waiting for Midnight Sun for 12 years now. This book that is penned from the perspective of Edward Cullen, was initially set to be released in 2008; but was delayed after a copy of Meyer’s manuscript was leaked. Instead, she decided to release the draft online.
Last week, Mayer posted a mysterious countdown on her website Fickle Fish Films. This led to many believing that a new book is on the way. While Twilight fans suspected that the author was releasing ‘Midnight Sun,’ others speculated that the announcement could be counting down to the sequel of ‘The Host’ which she released in 2008. A third section of her fan base hoped it was related to Meyer’s 2016 thriller novel, ‘The Chemist.’
