What Are You Currently Reading? (7)

Hello, friends! I couldn't help but do one of these posts this week, because I've been so excited about this book and I'm not done with it yet but I want to talk about it! I'm still super ahead of my Goodreads goal for 2020--which I'd set conservatively low at 50 earlier this year when I was a hot mess express and barely reading. I'm reading book 43 right now and have no doubt I'll meet my goal...and I don't think I'm going to raise the goal once I hit it. Everything I read after 50 will just be bonus.

But I digress. Let's talk about what I'm reading this weekend!

Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

Midnight Sun (Twilight, #5)When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella's side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward's version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

This unforgettable tale as told through Edward's eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward's past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger?

How much I've read: 100 pages

Thoughts: I can't believe this book is a real thing that is in my hands and that I am currently reading. I stopped on my way to work on Tuesday morning to grab a copy and I've been in excited awe ever since. We're heading into the busiest part of the month in work, so I didn't have much time or energy to read much yet, but I'm super looking forward to letting it take over my life for most of this weekend. I can already feel it drawing me into the supreme nostalgia of the years when I first fell in love with Twilight. And it's more than just happy memories--this book is actually shaping up to be good. I love knowing what Edward was thinking. I love seeing Bella through his eyes, which is a vast contrast to the way Bella sees herself. I love seeing the Cullen family up close and learning about their relationships with each other. I love, I love, I love...

So yeah. That's what I'm reading this weekend. I'm hesitant to talk about what I might pick up after because while I have ideas there is also the very real possibility that I'll want to reread the entire Twilight saga. 

But now I want to know--what are y'all reading this weekend?? :)


  1. I'm currently reading Midnight Sun too! ;) I am about 50% done with the book. It is like visiting with an old friend. I'm in the chapter where they are in the field. :) I actually purchased the hardcover and the ebook. One for my shelf with the others to look pretty and one to read wherever I am.

  2. I read Midnight Sun when it was online years ago and loved it. I loved seeing Bella through Edward's eyes. I may have to pick up Midnight Sun. I think the online version I read was just a small part of it. I am currently reading Elin Hilderbrand's Summer of '69.
