I know a lot of you have very strong thoughts when it comes to Stephanie Meyer. Some may be positive and the rest are definitely negative.
To be honest, I wasn’t planning on even purchasing or picking this book up, but one day I saw it at Costco for a cheap price and figured why not get it just to add it to my collection.
A couple day’s later, I’m reading it.
I am one of those people who love to read trashy novels. I read a lot of cringey romance and I absolutely love it.
For me it is a definite escape from any productive thoughts, which is why I love them so much.
Midnight Sun was that exact read for me, except I didn’t really love it.
Don’t get me wrong, it was definitely interesting to see more of the vampires and their stories, but reading about Edwards obsession with Bella was a bit much.
He was so dramatic for no good reason and it honestly got on my nerves a lot.
The only saving grace of this novel were his siblings and their backstories, it made the novel worth reading. I would have loved to get a book that was set in the past for Edward, instead of an exact copy of Twilight but from Edwards point of view.
Honestly, Edward was very vocal about his feelings, I’m not learning any thing I didn’t already know from Twilight.
All in all I’m pretty disappointed with this read. It wasn’t really as romantic as I wanted and it didn’t have a lot of the interesting Vampire stuff that I was really looking for.
Also I think that my being in a healthy long term relationship has also tainted me to a lot of these romance novels. Especially ones that focus on unhealthy relationships.
As for if you should read it?
If you are curious and don’t mind wasting 500+ pages of time, then sure pick it up.
If you don’t really care and have better things to do/read, then no do not waste your time. It is just Twilight in new casing with some depressing narration from a Vampire.
