Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

Midnight Sun is Twilight told from Edward’s point of view.  This book is exactly as advertised, the exact same story from Edward’s first-person point of view.  I read all of the Twilight novels when they were first out and loved them for entertaining escapism reading.  I was looking forward to reading another book in the saga.

I found it slow reading.  It was interesting at times, but as you knew everything that would happen, it was not very exciting.  I’ll admit, I made it about 350 pages in and then realized I really didn’t care to read the rest and wanted to move on to a different book, so I skimmed to the end and moved on.  I was hoping for more differences in the story, especially more background on Edward’s life before Bella.  It did give insight on what intrigued Edward about Bella. I loved when Bella talked about her favorite books as they pretty much match what I like to read.

Favorite Quote:
“Mostly I dream about being with you forever.”

Overall, Midnight Sun was as advertised, a retelling of Twilight from Edward's point of view.  I didn’t find it to be that exciting of a book.

  1. Laura, thanks for your honest review. I hadn't even heard of this book before. I'm glad you are able to take out library books. Our local public library has worked out a system, too!

  2. I only made it through the first Twilight book, so I probably won't be reading this one.

    1. I definitely wouldn't recommend it then. It's just Twilight from Edward's Point of view.
