Cast your mind back to the late 2000s, when your biggest life decision wasn't 'Which sweatpants should I put on today?', but rather choosing between Team Edward and Team Jacob from the Twilight franchise.
The fourth and (what we thought was) final book came out in 2008, with the last film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 airing in 2012. And while diehard fans have been living off fan-fiction and reruns since then, author Stephanie Meyers has got good news: a new Twilight book is coming.
On Good Morning America, the author announced new novel Midnight Sun, which will follow the love story between vampire Edward Cullen and human Bella Swan, but this time from his perspective, while also offering insight into his life before meeting his soulmate. OMG.
"I am very excited to finally, finally announce the release of Midnight Sun on August 4," she revealed. "It’s a crazy time right now and I wasn’t sure if this was the right time to put this book out, but some of you have been waiting for just so, so long.
"It didn’t seem fair to make you wait anymore. Sorry about the bad timing. Hopefully this book can be a distraction from the real world. I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with you.’

Who knew my morning would start with me refreshing Stephanie Meyer's website like some 14 year old desperate for twilight news?— Izzy (@izzyvalentyn) May 4, 2020
The Twilight saga followed the story of Bella Swan as she picked between Jacob Black, who can shapeshift into a werewolf, and vampire Edward Cullen. We for one are excited about this.
