  • Love is everywhere!

    First, don’t read the one star reviews. They are just a bunch of girls not liking to read a book from the perspective of a man. Second, they all say that Edward is creepy and a stalker. Yet he literally wanting to break up with Bella in the the first twilight. In the last chapter of the first twilight she’s literally begging him not to go. Her heart rate is through the roof cause she thinks he’ll leave her. Third, I like Edward. He’s not creepy he just madly in love. And she’s madly in love with him. So how about all you girls go read fifty shades of grey (which is crap by the way, this is much better).
  • A Great Idea For Fans!

    I was wary getting into this book because of Edward’s famously dark and masochistic thoughts. However, it surprised me- his motives and turmoils were interesting to experience. And yes, I say experience! Stephenie Meyer doesn’t just present the above information, she writes in a way that drags you into the character and situation. This was a perfect end to my Twilight phase.
  • Midnight Sun is great

    By Breezy Slide
    Great, that is the word I would use for Midnight Sun. It wasn’t good, it was great. I loved learning all of the details and kinda ‘behind the scenes’ actions made by Edward. I did get a bit confused with ‘the knot’, but I don’t mind. However, some people, and I think I agree with these people, think Edward was a creepy guy. I mean, we kinda just discovered that he followed Bella around all the time, even when she was sleeping. Does this vampire give no privacy? I would love to know Edward’s perspective in the other books, like when him and Jacob are talking. Anyway, book was a 5/5.

  • Better than Twilight

    By summerskiess66
    I’m not the biggest fan of the series, but I have to say I really liked reading from Edward’s point of view because it was more descriptive and it gave me a better view of his perspective. not my favorite book but I would read it again.
  • Edward, sweetie, you’re a bit dramatic but so am i

    By uhaw394
    This was truly a very enjoyable read. I can’t remember the last time I got this excited to sit down and devote any length of time, at minimum 3 hours, to any single story. In a very cliched way, I couldn’t really put it down once I picked it up. I rather preferred Edward’s perspective. Though he can be very redundant and annoying in his almost always conflicted nature, you have to admit knowing what the characters around you are thinking was so so cool. Some parts were drawn out and might’ve sufficed better with shorter summaries (the race, hospital days immediately after the accident) but nonetheless the story had me captivated nearly the whole time. I just kept picturing emo Robert Pattinson in my head whenever Edward doubted his role in the relationship and I’ll admit at times i had to laugh but it’s what makes his character cute and worth reading about. Stephenie please, i beg you, please follow this up and at least give us New Moon in his perspective. You already put out a conversation he had with Rosalie prior to deciding to die, why not finish it? Please give us the whole story or a full story in Jacob’s perspective. Maybe Carlisle? Rosalie? Girl, give us something please..😫
  • Twilight forever 💜

    This book was amazing. In high school I was obsessed. I read all the books, watched all the movies. To be able to read it again but backwards through Edwards eyes was just amazing to watch how he fell for Bella as well, and all the inside vamp stuff that we missed. Please please do the rest in his perspective. Or another twilight book in some way. Any who. Great read. Greatest forbidden love story ever.
  • Midnight sun! Would read it again!👍

    Such a good book! I really hope she writes the rest of the series in Edwards POV! I feel like it’s better in his pov honestly!
  • Great book

    By SuperDuperTwi-hard
    I love this book It surprised me so much that Edward liked her way before their relationship started and I like how we can now hear the minds of everyone in the twi-verse as I like to call it
