'Twilight' Author Stephenie Meyer Announces 'Midnight Sun' Official Release Date!

'Twilight' Author Stephenie Meyer Announces 'Midnight Sun' Official Release Date!

Stephenie Meyer is officially releasing Twilight novel “Midnight Sun“!

The author teased fans last week with a countdown clock on her website, which many concluded it was related to the new book.

“Midnight Sun” is a retelling of Twilight, but from Edward Cullen’s point of view.

“I am very excited to finally, finally announce the release of ‘Midnight Sun’ on August 4. It’s a crazy time right now and I wasn’t sure if this 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. Sorry about the bad timing. Hopefully this book can be a distraction from the real world,” Stephenie told GMA Monday morning (May 4).

“Midnight Sun” will be released on August 4th!

Is 'Twilight' Author Stephenie Meyer Teasing Release of 'Midnight Sun'?

Author Stephenie Meyer has Twilight fans talking!

The writer’s website has been updated with a countdown clock, which will end at midnight on Monday (May 4).

Many fans are believing that she will be announcing “Midnight Sun“, which is a shelved Twilight spinoff.

The new book was a different version of the original, told by Edward’s point of view.

“While I was procrastinating some real editing work (I’m always at my most creative when procrastinating), I started to wonder how the first chapter of Twilight would read if it were written from Edward’s perspective,” she wrote on her website back in 2008. “There is so much more to his side of the story than there is to Bella’s in that first chapter. After all, Bella only knows that an incredibly gorgeous boy is looking at her funny. Meanwhile, Edward is suffering through one of the most momentous days of his very long life!”

“First there’s the shock and frustration of not being able to hear Bella’s thoughts, then the wild, monstrous reaction to her scent, followed by the incredible expenditure of self-control that it takes to not kill her,” she added. “His side of Bella’s first day at Forks High School is a hundred times more exciting than her own.”

You can read the first draft of “Midnight Sun” RIGHT HERE!

Nina Dobrev Is Recommending This Book, Has Special Connection To Author

Nina Dobrev is sharing a new book recommendation!

The 31-year-old actress was finally able to read the book “Imaginary Friend” and is suggesting others read it too.

The book was released back in October, and was written by Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”. If you forgot, Nina was in the movie adaptation of “Perks”!

“The quarantine has afforded me more free time than I usually have. Stephen Chbosky sent me his new book a while back, and I was finally able to read it. I’m floored. Keeping my mind distracted has been a saving grace in this difficult time,” Nina wrote on Instagram.

“If you’re looking for something to keep your brain occupied, that will keep you at the edge of your seat… this is your book. Stephen does it again, complexly drawn characters, friendship and family bonds… it has it all. I had the immense pleasure of working with Stephen on a movie that he adapted from another book he wrote, called The Perks of Being a Wallflower. [Also a great read if you’re looking for more recommendations]. And if you like it check out the film we made, but read the book first [that’s always what I do!] @stephenchbosky ♥️,” she added.

You can purchase your own copy of “Imaginary Friend” on Amazon right here!

Little Fires Everywhere's Gavin Lewis Shares His Favorite Book To Movie Adaptations

Gavin Lewis is bringing Moody Richardson to life in Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere!

The 16-year-old actor plays Reese Witherspoon‘s son in the mini-series adaptation from the book of the same name.

Since he’s starring in a book to screen adaptation, we thought it would be fun to find out Gavin‘s top five favorite movies that were books first!

The first three episodes of Little Fires Everywhere are streaming NOW on Hulu.

  • 5. The Shining – Even though Kubrick’s adaptation made a lot of changes from the book, Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of Jack Torrance and the monster he becomes is incredible.
  • 4. Where the Wild Things Are – This was my favorite book when I was little, and my six-year-old self was blown away by seeing Sendak’s monsters come to life.
  • 3. It – The movie did a great job of keeping to the anxiety producing storyline of the book, particularly Bill Skarsgård’s terrifying portrayal of Pennywise.

The 'Five Feet Apart' Author & Screenwriter Are Working on a New Tearjerker!

The 'Five Feet Apart' Author & Screenwriter Are Working on a New Tearjerker!

Fans of Five Feet Apart, prepare to rejoice!

Author Rachael Lippincott and screenwriter Mikki Daughtry, who worked together to bring Five Feet Apart to life, are working together on a novel called All This Time, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Prepare to sob again, because All This Time sounds like it’s just as much of a tearjerker as Five Feet Apart (which starred Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson).

The story is a romance (obviously) about a boy who wakes up from a coma and meets the girl of his dreams – only to discover that reality might end up keeping them apart, according to EW.

All This Time, the story of Kyle and Marley, has been with me for more than half my life. It has waited patiently while other stories claimed more of my time and attention,” Mikki said in a statement. “The success of Five Feet Apart — the movie and the novel — gave me the confidence to approach Simon & Schuster with this wildly improbable but intensely romantic tale of true love.”

Rachael is also gushing about the new project.

“I’m ecstatic to be teaming up with the brilliant Mikki Daughtry again to help bring All This Time to life in novel form. It’s a story that Mikki has held very close to her heart for a while now, and I know readers will fall just as much in love with Kyle and Marley as they did with Will and Stella,” she said. “From my very first introduction to the story, I was instantly hooked on this tale of true love, the twists and the turns of their beautiful romance pulling me in.”
