So, Yeah…..There’s a “New” Twilight Book Coming Out

So, Stephenie Meyer has written a 192 page novella (since when has almost two hundred pages been called a novella????  Is there a real definition for what that word means???) about Bree from Eclipse.  Most of you (even some of you Twihards) are probably saying “Who the hell is Bree?”  Well *SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER* Bree is one of Victoria’s minions who chooses not to fight the Cullens so is spared by Carlisle the pure of heart, but is then executed by the Volturi anyway.

Why would I want to read a book about a girl who is just going to die???  Which isn’t really a spoiler becuase the title gives it away.  I mean, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner does kind of give away the ending.

Now I am a huge Twilight fan.  I love Stephenie Meyer’s books.  I am just not a real big fan of Stephenie Meyer herself.  She went on and on and on about how she wanted to distance herself from Twilight and she needed to do something different after what happened with the Midnight Sun debacle.  Well, apparently she was ready to come back, but did she go back to Midnight Sun???  Nope, she decided to write a stupid book about a character no one cares about.

What really makes me mad is that she has the first twelve chapters of Midnight Sun written…..in Twilight there are only 24 chapters and an epilogue.  That is only about 240 more pages since the books are basically telling the same story.  That means she could have easily finished Midnight Sun in the amount of time it took her to write this 200 page book (now I know that different books take more or less time to write, but this is just an example).

So she was ready to go back to Twilight, but she didn’t go back to Midnight Sun, even though her fans are DYING for it.  You know why?  Because she is still all pissed off that the chapters got leaked.  Well, she can’t blame anybody but herself for that.  She willingly gave out copies to people and one of THOSE people leaked the book (or lost it and then it got leaked, who knows).  She shouldn’t punish her fans because her friend screwed up.

Anyway, rant over.  One good thing about the book is that some of the proceeds will go to support Haiti.  Then it will be available online for free a few days after it goes on sale (why?  who knows?).  I think I am most mad at the fact that I will go out and buy this book so I can put it on my shelf with the others.  And I will read it, and I will love it.

But the whole time I will be wishing it could be Midnight Sun.  Also, think about how much more money she could have made for Haiti if she’d finished THAT book.

    You know, I am really not feeling any love for Twilight right now. I most likely will not buy this book, although I may browse through it at the bookstore. I am looking forward to Eclipse though.

    Did I misunderstand her website though? I thought she said that this story was actually already written and was going to go in the Twilight Guide but was obviously too long…

    OH and I had to say this hee hee hee:

    It’s like a whole theory of short fiction…and of the novella, you know? And, of course, the problem…with Meyer’s definition of the novella…is that it really only applies to her.

    That doesn’t sound like Meyer. Not. [Laughter]

    Amber, I think I remember reading that on her website too.

    Aaaaaah, interesting. I have avoided her website since the Midnight Sun debacle. Interesting that she brought up the infamous “Guide.” You know, the one that was supposed to come out in December of 2008! I don’t really trust anything she says.

    My guess is that she had the outline of the story but when the earthquake happened her publishers said do you want to do something for charity and then she said, oh yeah, let me make this into a “Novella” for you.

    I guess if it is true that it was already written then my theory is wrong, but I still think the book is ridiculous.

    Thanks for the info though!!!

    Um yeah about the “Guide.” I had that on order at the library but it got cancelled. I have no idea what’s up with it now, but someone is completely stupid for missing that chance to release it when Twilight was at it’s biggest moment.
