Stephenie dishes on the status of the new ‘Twilight’ book ‘Midnight Sun’ and when you’ll get to read it! Find out all the details!
Stephenie Meyer has always hoped to release the fifth book in the Twilight Saga, but the author has finally revealed details on the book’s status while appearing at the 2012 Comic-Con panel for Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2!
Midnight Sun would have been a companion novel to Twilight — a retelling of the events of Twilight, but written from the perspective of Edward Cullen as opposed to that of Bella Swan.
Unfortunately, Stephenie’s partial draft of Midnight Sun got leaked illegally in 2008 and turned her off from ever releasing it.
When Josh Horowitz asked Stephenie if there’s been any development on the fifth Twilight book Midnight Sun, Stephenie said, “Nothing’s changed. It’s been ten years of vampires.”
Apparently, Stephenie is tired of vampires and is putting them behind her — for the time being!
She added, “The Host is a really nice experience. Not that filming the Twilight movies hasn’t been great. But it was a change and that was nice.”
Asked whether she’s working on a sequel for her new novel, The Host, Stephenie adds, “You know, I really have to stop saying what I’m working on because you say this is what I want to do next and three months later, people think it should be on the bookshelves.”
Does that mean Stephenie really could be working on Midnight Sun and she’s just trying to throw off the fans? Let’s hope so!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you hoping to see the release of Midnight Sun?
