I was absolutely obsessed with Twilight in high school. I have read the whole series too many times to count. I have read it over and over I should probably have it memorized by now. Twilight was the book that got me into reading. I read the pre-released chapters of midnight sun when they first came out and absolutely loved it! I have been waiting for this to be released since then so when it came out I just had to snatch it up! This book gave me so much nostalgia. In case you didn’t know this book is a re-telling of twilight from Edward’s point of view instead of Bellas. Mostly it just goes over the same scenes twilight did with some extra scenes thrown in there. It was nice seeing what Edward was up to when he wasn’t with Bella.

My favorite parts were seeing more into the life of the Cullens. I loved the extra details we get about how Alices and jasper’s powers work. I also like the insight into what Alice was “seeing” when Edward and Bella first started hanging out. The extra scenes were a favorite of mine, like when they talk about Carlisle first teaching Edward how to control his thirst. I prefer these scenes more than going over what we already know from Twilight. I also found it interesting how Edward focuses on parts of their conversations differently than Bella.

My least favorite parts were when Edward’s thoughts would just drag on. He kept repeating the same things over and over. I mean I must have read “I need to protect her” or “she needs protection” a thousand times or at least it felt that way. I honestly think being inside Edward’s head makes me like him less. Don’t get me wrong I still believe Edward and Bella were meant to be together but being in his head is just so tiring. Everything was so drawn out and repeated multiple times which was driving me crazy!

I would recommend this book for any Twilight lovers out there as it did add a decent amount to the story itself. However, I would be surprised if anyone who either hasn’t read twilight or just didn’t love it could even get through this book.
