Twilight fans, it’s your lucky day! Stephenie Meyer announced the release of Midnight Sun, the one we’ve waited for almost 12 long years. And if you are Team Edward, this one’s gonna be extra special for y’all.

A countdown timer had appeared on Meyer’s website last week and all the Twilight fans were going crazy trying to decode it. Finally, the countdown ended today but with a server crash at the last minute. Fans took to Twitter to urge people to get off the site and let it load so everyone could figure what the countdown was intended for. But thankfully, a few moments later Meyer herself announced the release of Midnight Sun happening on the 4th of August on Good Morning America. She said,

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 boook 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. I am so excited to finally be able to share it with you.

Midnight Sun is a reimagined version of the first book of the Twilight series. The book will include Edward’s perspective, rather than Bella’s. Meyer talked about the same on her website and said,

While I was procastinating some real editing work (I’m always at my most creative when procastinating), I started to wonder how the first chapter of Twilight would read if it were written from Edward’s perspective. There is so much more to his side of the story than there is to Bella’s in that first chapter.

To be honest, the teenager inside me has come to life again. And I definitely cannot wait to check this book out asap. What about you? Let me know in the comments below.
