Take a Shot: By now Twilight has been a best selling book series, an international blockbuster movie franchise and a cult classic to many. Since the story of Bella and Edward began in 2005 their endeavors have been inspiration for parodies, fan-fiction and memes alike. However, now 15 years later the Twi-hards have a brand new installment with Midnight Sun. This novel follows the events of the first book, Twilight, entirely from Edward’s perspective. After the original version of this story was leaked and Meyers simply published the few chapters on her website, many thought that was the end of our journey into Edward’s head. Meyers thankfully was not done with this story and released the completed novel this year. I don’t want to give too much away especially since most people already know the story anyway, but I will say read all of Twilight before reading Midnight Sun. This is mainly because that’s how we all (I myself am a Twi-hard so that’s who we implies) had to do it and plus it helps with consistency of understanding the perspective of Bella solely in her words and then understanding Edward’s in retrospect.
