When you're a part of a fandom, you're pretty much in it for life! You may forget about it from time to time but gradually you are pulled back by the strings it's sown over your heart! Such is the case recently for the Twilight fandom as author Stephenie Meyer had the most exciting news to share with the fans. Midnight Sun is something Twilight fans are well aware of as it was the prequel novel to the series from Edward Cullen's point of view. After sharing the first chapter from Midnight Sun in 2008, several chapters started to get leaked which led to the writer shelving the project.

Now, more than a decade later, Stephenie has decided to finally treat the Twilight fandom as she announced on her blog that Midnight Sun will be dropping on August 4, 2020. In a statement, as per TIME, Meyer shared that it felt strange to announce about Midnight Sun amidst the coronavirus pandemic as no one really knows what's next. While the idea of delaying the announcement after things went back to normal was churning in Stephenie's mind, the writer felt it was wrong taking into consideration as to how long the fans who are eager for the novel have already waited.

"I know how much I personally need distractions right now, how much I need something to look forward to and most of all, how much I need more books to read. So, I hope this book gives my readers a little pleasure to anticipate and after it arrives, a chance to live in an imaginary world for a while," Meyer added in her statement.

Here's how the Twilight fandom reacted to Midnight Sun's announcement below:
