A review by caitlinsbooks
Midnight Sun, by Stephenie Meyer

  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Positives: some of the quotes were funny, the romance was still cute in its own weird way, and it was a throwback and a half to be in this story. 

Negatives: Edward goes on a bit, doesn’t he? What’s all this crap about pomegranates? Also just get over it Edward, this girl loves you and would like to be a vampire, please. You could stop this from being a 4 book saga (still salty about the travesty that is New Moon...) if you just did what she wanted. Thanks.

Read the rest of my review here. I’m gonna go full Edward and say way too much! Spoilers ahead...
Spoiler Ok, I finally did it. I finished this behemoth. I started off feeling quite excited about reading Edward’s POV, and there were definitely some interesting additions brought to the story thanks to his mind reading abilities. I guess I’m just disappointed that this book was literally just Twilight. What did I expect? I have no idea. I wish this book had been released a lot sooner, as it definitely would have benefited from the Twilight hype. I’m not much of a rereader, and I don’t remember what was going through Bella’s head anymore, so it was as if I was truly in Edward’s head when he was frustrated about not being able to hear her thoughts. I don’t think that was the point of the story? I think we were supposed to know what was going on? Maybe not...

Anyway, yes this book was fun at times, and full of the classic Twilight angst, but WOW IT WAS REALLY LONG AND BORING MOST OF THE TIME.
