Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was a major Twihard back in the day so purchasing this book was a must for me.
When I saw the size of the paperback (700 plus pages), I was a bit daunted by the size but convinced myself it was fine. It was Edward. I loved Edward. He was my first book boyfriend.
The synopsis was a bit over the top but again, it’s my book bae, Edward.
I opened the book and realized two things.
One- This was a really heavy book. Two- Edward has ALOT of thoughts. Like I used to think I was an overthinker but Edward put me to shame.
Incidentally reading this book calmed my anxiety (mostly), because with Edward doing so much overthinking, I didn’t have to.
I have mixed feelings about this book.
On one hand, WHY is it so big and WHY does Edward have so many thoughts?
However it was pretty interesting to see inside his head and hear his side of the story. Several moments from the book series and movie series make much more sense after reading “Midnight Sun.”
I definitely suggest you read this if you’re a “Twilight” fan. Just maybe a few pages at a time and maybe purchase the ebook instead?
There were several times I had to stop reading simply because the act of holding the book up was too much for me.
I’m not a fan of Edward’s thoughts or the size of this book. But by the last page, I was pretty disappointed that this was the last we would hear from him (although can you imagine how depressing “New Moon” would be from his perspective?)
Against my better judgement, this book had me hooked.
