Review for Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

                                                        Free E-book from Goodreads!! Heck yeah!

Midnight Sun is the much anticipated retelling of Twilight from Edward Cullen's perspective. An unedited partial draft was illegally leaked onto the internet in 2008; consequently, author Stephenie Meyer put the project on indefinite hold.
Shortly afterward, she posted a letter to her fans on her website including a link to the entire partial draft of the book so that those who wanted to read it could do so legally and with her consent

I started reading the Twilight series before they became popular, before you could go into a hot topic store and buy a cosmetic that made you glitter in the sun like the rest of those sparkly vampires. It seemed like with each addition to her series her books got better and better. At least for me.

I was never a fan of Edward. Don't get me wrong I don't have a Team Edward or Team Jacob t-shirt, I desperately wanted a Team Shut up t-shirt to wear to one of the midnight showing's but I didn't think it would go over well.

I was hoping that in reading his side of the story I might like him better, I was hoping he wouldn't come off as the controlling jerk I thought him to be.
Well...he stopped being a jerk...and escalated to a creeper. I loved the book, don't get me wrong, I think I read it in two days between the times I was able to wrestle the computer away from my gamer of a fiance. But it seemed like the creeper's guide to dating my teenage daughter. Let's oil her window's so I can sneak in easier, let's monopolize her entire attention and isolate her from her friends so she is all mine. Muahaha!

I think what made me really lean more to any side would have been the fact that if you love someone, how can you tell them who they are to see and who they aren't to see? You are suppose to be a partner, not a parent. Yeah I understand the whole danger issue but let's face it Bella's a clutz. He would have to plastic wrap her to keep her safe.
I really do hope that Stephenie Meyer does finish it, because It is a very good read. And as sad and sick as it may seem, I kinda want to see what other ways he sneaks his will into her's...maybe as a warning sign or maybe because like everyone else that see's a traffic disaster I wanna rubber neck and watch to see how bad it gets before it finally gets better.

Memorable Moments/Favorite Quotes:

1. "" I've noticed that people-men in peticular- are crabbier when they're hungry."
2. "How could doing the wrong thing give me so much happiness."
3 " In this vision, I wsa not Bella's sentence, she was my reward."

Four stars!
